Fig. 175 The display in the instrument cluster: advance warning display

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The city emergency brake function is part of the area monitoring system (Front Assist) and is active when Front Assist is switched on.

Depending on the equipment level, the city emergency brake function can be activated or deactivated using the  button and the and Driver assistance function buttons in the infotainment system   .

The city emergency brake function gathers information on the traffic situation up to a distance of about 10 m in front of the vehicle within a speed range of about 5 km/h (3 mph) to 30 km/h (19 mph).

The system prepares the vehicle for emergency braking if it detects a possible collision with a vehicle ahead  .

If the driver does not react to a possible serious collision, the system can automatically stop the vehicle with brake pressure with increasing intensity so as to reduce the speed in a possible collision. Hence the system can help minimise the consequences of an accident.

Display

Automatic deceleration by the city emergency brake function will be shown by the advance warning display in the instrument cluster   1).

WARNING

The intelligent technology of the city emergency brake function cannot change the laws of physics. The driver is always responsible for braking in time.

The brake pedal feels harder when city emergency brake function triggers the brakes.

Automatic brake intervention by the city emergency brake function can be stopped by using the clutch, the accelerator or steering intervention.

The city emergency brake function can brake the vehicle to a standstill. The vehicle will not be held permanently by the braking system. Depress the brake.

Switch off Front Assist and the city emergency brake function in the event of multiple unwanted interventions. Go to a qualified workshop. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.
