Audi Safety Technology Features

So, what is Audi Pre Sense, exactly? It's an Audi safety technology system that can activate hazard lights and apply braking when a collision is detected. Side windows and the sunroof will be automatically closed and the front seat belts will tighten to protect drivers and passengers. Other features include:

  • Audi active lane assist: This feature not only warns the driver when the vehicle is about to leave the lane, but can help steer to keep the vehicle inside the lane.
  • Audi AI traffic jam pilot: Do you hate driving in stop and go traffic? If so, you're like most Nashua drivers. This feature will take over the stop-and-go driving for you when activated.
  • Audi pre sense front / Audi pre sense city: Audi pre sense front detects potential collision dangers in front of the vehicle, while Audi pre sense city is designed for busy city streets.
  • Collision avoidance assist: This feature kicks in when the vehicle needs to drive around something to avoid a collision instead of braking.
  • Turn assist: This Audi safety technology feature monitors oncoming traffic when the vehicle is making a left-turn, and will apply braking and/or steer the vehicle into a safe lane to avoid a collision.
  • Adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function: This enhanced cruise control system will adjust speed as needed, depending on surrounding traffic and other factors.
  • Hold assist: When this Audi safety technology feature is engaged, the driver doesn’t need to keep her foot on the brake to prevent the car from rolling away.

Additionally, Audi Pre-Sense can also distribute a curb warning and activate multi-collision brake assist. The system also measures the speed and severity of a collision detected and steers away while braking. These actions reduce the chances of a front and rear collision.
