What Is Active City Stop?

Active City Stop is designed to help reduce the likelihood or consequences of your car colliding with the vehicle in front in slow-moving traffic by applying the brakes if it is detected that a collision is likely.

City stop is only available with select vehicles, take a look at our brochures to check if a vehicle you are interested in has Active City Stop.

Active City Stop is also known as Autonomous Emergency Braking.

How It Works:

A lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) sensor at the top of the windscreen scans the area ahead for other vehicles in slow-moving traffic at speeds of up to 30km/h.

The sensor is able to capture 15 images, monitor the gap to the vehicle ahead and calculate whether the traffic is slowing or has stopped, all in the time it takes you to blink – in other words, in a second. 

If it determines that a collision is likely, it pre-charges the brakes. If the driver does nothing to avoid the collision, Active City Stop applies the brakes.

The system deactivates if you accelerate harder or steer to avoid an accident.
