The all new 500 Icon hatchback features technology to improve your safety while driving and let you enjoy your time on board at its best.
BRAKES FOR YOU
Even more safety for you and everyone else on the road: the all new 500 Icon hatchback brakes automatically to avoid or mitigate collision with preceding vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist, up to 130km/h of speed. At first, the car just alerts the driver with an acoustic and visual warning in the instrument cluster, and if the driver does not respond, the system breaks the vehicle helping to avoid or mitigate potential impact.
Be more in control of the speed you want to travel at: just determine it and the all new 500 Icon hatchback will maintain it during your journey.
Fatigue wont’ be a problem anymore: the all new 500 Icon hatchback helps you to not accidentally fall asleep behind the wheel. The system can detect the initial signs of fatigue by monitoring lateral movements of the vehicle, advising to take a break. A visual and acoustic warning will be recorded on the instrument cluster.
LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM
Travel safely on your lane, more easily: the all new 500 Icon hatchback helps you to prevent unwilling crossing the road lines, keeping you on track with an active action on the steering wheel and protecting yourself and others from dangers. When the function detects that the vehicle is about to unintentionally move out of the lane, it warns the driver by means of a visual, audible and haptic signal as steering wheel vibration, in order to counter steer accordingly.
Always by your side, especially in an emergency. In the event of a severe accident causing the deployment of the airbags, an automatic emergency call will be forwarded directly from a dedicated in-vehicle system of the all new 500 Icon hatchback to 112 European Emergency Number. Meanwhile your position and vehicle status will be immediately transmitted, to allow a faster rescue. Also, an SOS button will be easily reachable in front of the interior rear mirror, to receive quick help in case of need. * * The system only activates in case of severe accident and airbag deployment.
