Proximity sensing

Keeping your car safely on track

Advanced sensing systems such as Automatic Cruise Control (ACC), Side Scan and Lane Assist help keep your car safely in the right place on the road at all times. These technologies are especially helpful on long motorway journeys. They keep you a safe distance from the car ahead, warn you of approaching traffic before changing lanes, and stop your car drifting out of your correct driving lane. It's like having a friendly co-driver in the car with you.
