AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING (AEB)

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING (AEB) SAFETY.

NOTES

Not all vehicles are fitted with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). Consult a retailer/authorised repairer for confirmation.

AEB uses forward-facing cameras, located above the rear-view mirror, to help identify an imminent risk of collision with:

  • Another vehicle travelling in front.

  • A crossing pedestrian.

In most instances, AEB helps reduce the severity of an impact. In some cases, AEB helps to stop the vehicle before an impact takes place.

If required, AEB can be switched off via the Driver assistance instrument panel menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

AEB automatically switches on, every time the vehicle’s ignition is switched on.

Vehicle detection:

The vehicle detection AEB system operates when the vehicle is travelling between 5 km/h (3 mph) and 80 km/h (50 mph). If an imminent risk of collision with a vehicle travelling in front is detected, the system automatically applies the brakes. If the vehicle's speed is between 35 km/h (22 mph) and 80 km/h (50 mph), the instrument panel displays a warning message. The warning message is displayed just before the brakes are automatically applied.

WARNING

The brakes are only applied for a few seconds after the vehicle has stopped. After this period, the driver must resume full control of the vehicle.

The driver can override AEB operation by turning the steering wheel or pressing the accelerator pedal. AEB then disengages to make sure that the driver remains in full control of the vehicle.

Pedestrian detection:

The pedestrian detection AEB system operates when the vehicle is travelling between 5 km/h (3 mph) and 60 km/h (37 mph). If an imminent risk of collision with a crossing pedestrian is detected, the system automatically applies the brakes. If the vehicle's speed is between 40 km/h (25 mph) and 60 km/h (37 mph), the instrument panel displays a warning message. The warning message is displayed just before the brakes are automatically applied.

WARNING

The brakes are only applied for a few seconds after the vehicle has stopped. After this period, the driver must resume full control of the vehicle.

The driver can override AEB operation by turning the steering wheel or pressing the accelerator pedal. AEB then disengages to make sure that the driver remains in full control of the vehicle.
