The ICC ensures a safe distance from the vehicle ahead when cruise control is on. When it is turned off (which happens most of the time for most drivers), Intelligent Brake Assistance (Intelligent Brake Assist) and the Order of frontal collision warning (Forward Collision Warning) remain constantly activated. This system not only warns the driver if the distance to the vehicle ahead is inadequate, but powerful system preloads the brake discs all in anticipation of an emergency brake, if necessary.

The flexible brake pressure on one side of the vehicle gives the vehicle on the right track. The LDP system works beyond 70 km / h only and is automatically controlled by the use of indicators. If desired, the driver can also switch off the system.

Musically, the Premium models come with a 10 GB Music Box that can store the equivalent of 300 CD-and, in series, a high-fidelity sound system BOSE ® to appreciate them.
