  • Audi pre sense basic can react during emergency and dangerous braking maneuvers and unstable driving situations (such as over steering or understeering).
  • Audi pre sense city and Audi pre sense front can detect an impending frontal impact and react with warnings, braking interventions, and preemptive safety measures for the vehicle occupants.
  • Audi pre sense rear monitors the rear traffic behind your vehicle and can react to an impending rear impact.
  • The swerve assist can help you to steer the vehicle around an obstacle during an evasive maneuver that is detected as critical.
  • The turn assist can detect vehicles in the opposite lane as critical during a turning maneuver and react with braking maneuvers.
