The first thing we want to touch on is the new assistance display. A new option in the driver display, this full-screen option displays the operating principle of the driving assistance systems. While it’s an abstract view, you’ll clearly be able to see things like the driving lanes, markings, other road users – including bikes – and more. It will also display when certain driving assistance systems are in effect, making sure you know exactly what’s going on at any given time. This – as well as all of the driving assistance systems – is made possible by a big series of sensors, included in the standard Driving Assistance package.
2 front radar sensors, aperture 130°
1 front radar sensor, aperture 90° and 9°
1 front stereo camera, aperture 70°
2 rear radar sensors, aperture 130°
