The system uses radar and video sensors to alert when the detected speed difference between the 500X S-Design and the vehicle in front is too high, thus indicating a potential risk of collision. If the driver does not react, the system automatically brakes to avoid or reduce impact.
The ACC system (Adaptive Cruise Control, available upon request on the 500X S-Design) allows you to set the cruising speed of your car and maintain it for the entire journey. Thanks to a radar in the front of the car, the system detects vehicles or objects on the road so that it can reduce its speed or increase the distance from the car in front.
With the 500X S-Design, “blind spots” are no longer an issue, as the system checks for the presence of other vehicles in the most critical spots, alerting you with a flashing light on the rear view mirrors and a sound alarm. The same happens when reversing, if a vehicle approaches your side.
If you change lane without indicating, the Lane Assist system alerts you. The 500X S-Design will show a visual alert in the dashboard and the power assisted steering with increase resistance to the steering.
The 500X S-Design helps you handle the car with its rear camera and parking sensors; furthermore, with its Rear Cross Path Detection technology, the 500X indicates when it is safe to reverse away from your parking spot even with low visibility (Blind Spot Assist).
The 500X S-Design holds the road beautifully and provides real driving pleasure: both on and off road, thanks to its high-resistance steel body frame with high torsional rigidity, together with the independent MacPherson suspensions on its 4 wheels.
