Thanks to two radar sensors at the rear of the car, the Side Assist detects vehicles approaching from behind or that are in the car’s blind spot. The driver is informed of this using an LED signal on the inside of the wing mirror housings. Side Assist can detect vehicles up to 70 m away and thus also effectively warns the driver of hazardous situations on motorways and dual carriageways.
The Lane Assist recognises an unintended departure from the lane, providing a visual message, and initiates corrective steering. It is activated at speeds above 65 km/h provided that there are recognisable lane markings on the road surface and the turn signal has not been turned on.
The Front Assist is a collision-alert safety system. Faced with an unavoidable collision, it applies the brakes to minimise the consequences. It also performs an emergency stop if a pedestrian or cyclist dangerously attempts to cross the path of the car.
This feature coordinates the activities of the onboard systems to minimise emergency traffic situations. The system pre-tensions the front seat belts in the event of imminent collision or in unstable driving situations, such as severe over- or understeering, and also engages with the ESC to close the side windows almost fully in order to prevent foreign objects from entering the vehicle.
If a SCALA is involved in an accident and the airbags are activated, it could remain in motion and cause another accident, which is where the Multi-Collision Brake comes in, bringing the vehicle to a standstill to prevent a pile-up. The ESC incorporates a Multi-Collision brake, a safety feature which activates the braking system after a collision to prevent further damage.
