The message Audi pre sense will warn you about the danger.

WARNING

Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.

Audi pre sense front

Applies to: vehicles with Audi pre sense front

Within the limits of the system, Audi pre sense front can warn about an impending front end collision and brake the vehicle strongly, if necessary.

The system uses the camera behind the windshield and is available at speeds above approximately 6 mph (10 km/h).

Driving situations

The situations to which the system reacts depends on the vehicle speed.

Automatic braking interventions are available at vehicle speeds up to approximately 52 mph (85 km/h).

Up to speeds of approximately 52 mph (85 km/h), the system may react to the following situations:

  • Pedestrians are moving inside your lane

Up to speeds of approximately 155 mph (250 km/h), the system may react to the following situations:

  • A vehicle driving ahead clearly applies the brakes
  • When approaching a vehicle ahead that is clearly traveling more slowly
  • When approaching a stationary vehicle

Prewarning

To warn about detected dangers, Audi pre sense will appear in the instrument cluster and an audio signal will sound.

A brief application of the brakes

If a collision is imminent, there may be an acute warning using a brief application of the brakes.

You will also be warned about the danger by an indicator in the instrument cluster display. You may only be able to avoid a collision by swerving or braking strongly.

Automatic braking force increase

If there is an impending collision and you are not applying the brakes enough, the braking force may be increased, depending on the situation.

Automatic braking

If you do not react to the acute warning, the system may apply the brakes with strong braking force within the limits of the system in order to reduce the speed of impact in the event of a collision.

If the brakes were applied until the vehicle stopped, Please take over! will appear in the instrument cluster and you must take over control of the vehicle.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • Audi pre sense front cannot overcome natural physical laws. It is a system designed to assist and it cannot prevent a collision in every circumstance. The driver must always intervene.

    The driver is always responsible for braking at the correct time. Do not let the increased safety provided tempt you into taking risks. This could increase your risk of a collision.

  • Audi pre sense front does not react to certain objects, such as animals, crossing or oncoming vehicles, bars, railings, or railcars.
  • Audi pre sense front may be limited or unavailable when driving in curves.
  • Loose objects can be thrown around the vehicle interior during sudden driving or braking maneuvers, which increases the risk of an accident. Store objects securely while driving.
  • In trailer mode, the braking behavior of the vehicle and trailer may be different than usual during automatic braking. If there is a high trailer tongue weight, the reaction from Audi pre sense front may be limited or the system may be unavailable.

Tips

Certain pre sense front functions are switched off when the hill descent assist is actively controlling the vehicle.

Audi pre sense rear

Applies to: vehicles with Audi pre sense rear

Within the limits of the system, Audi pre sense rear uses data from radar sensors at the rear corners of the vehicle and calculates the probability of a rear-end collision with the vehicle behind you.

Audi pre sense preemptive safety measures can be initiated if the risk of a collision with the vehicle behind you is detected.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • Audi pre sense rear does not react to pedestrians, animals, crossing objects, and objects not detected as vehicles.

Tips

  • Audi pre sense rear functions switch off when trailer mode is detected. There is no guarantee the functions will switch off when using a retrofitted trailer hitch.
  • Audi pre sense rear functions may also switch off if there is a malfunction in the side assist system.

Audi pre sense side

Applies to: vehicles with Audi pre sense side

Within the limits of the system, Audi pre sense can warn about impending collisions with crosstraffic and vehicles approaching from the side, and trigger Audi pre sense preemptive safety measures.

The system uses additional sensors in the front and rear areas and is active at speeds up to approximately 35 mph (60 km/h).

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • Audi pre sense side does not react to pedestrians, animals, and objects not detected as vehicles.

Tips

  • The Audi pre sense side functions are limited when trailer mode is detected.
  • The Audi pre sense side functions may also switch off if there is a malfunction in the intersection assistant*.
