Numerous assistance systems are becoming increasingly popular even in smaller segments. According to a study, the emergency brake assist is the most effective.
New, especially higher-priced cars are equipped with an abundance of assistance systems. The German Road Safety Council expects the most from the emergency braking assistant: According to a study by Mercedes accident research cited by the DVR, the number of serious rear-end collisions in the current B-Class has decreased by 14 percent. The compact model has been equipped with an emergency braking system since 2001, which warns of collisions with other vehicles.
Emergency braking assistant can be booked later
Today's advanced emergency braking systems intervene automatically if the driver does not react to warning signals. The engineers believe that this system could double the number of rear-end collisions.
For most models you can already book an emergency braking assistant, depending on the vehicle class and equipment line, the systems are already available as standard, for example from Mercedes or Volvo. The DVR provides a cross-manufacturer overview of which car has which assistance system installed at bester-beifahrer.de. (SP-X)
