Active Blind Spot Assist (ABSA) increases the level of protection even more by overcoming one of the biggest hazards on the road: vehicles entering your blind spot.
Along with a visual alert and an audible warning, Active Blind Spot Assist provides a corrective steering torque in an attempt to keep your vehicle in the centre of the lane: by changing your driving trajectory, ABSA can help you to avoid or mitigate potential side collisions with vehicles in adjacent lanes. You can always adapt the intensity of this corrective torque according to your preference.
The blind spot area extends from immediately behind the exterior rear-view mirrors up to about 7 m (23 ft) behind the rear bumper. The ABSA system monitors the detection zone from three different entry points: side, rear, and overtaking traffic
