Side Assist aids the driver when changing lane. Two radar systems at the rear scan the areas up to around 50 metres behind the vehicle and in the blind spots to the sides.Side Assist signals any vehicle which is in the critical zone for a lane change, regardless of whether a lane change is in progress or not.
The Rear Traffic Alert assists the driver, within the system’s limits, when reversing out of a parking space. Sensors in the rear bumper enable the system to monitor the lateral area behind the vehicle much earlier than the driver. If another vehicle is getting too close, an audible warning alerts the driver to the critical situation.
