Active Brake Assist (ABA 3)
The Active Brake Assist or Advanced Emergency Braking System kicks in as soon as the foreseen distance from the vehicle ahead or a stationary obstacle falls dangerously below the safe distance. The systems, which exceed today's regulatory requirements, first warn the driver, and if he doesn't react, they independently initiate full braking.
