Audi Side Assist aids the driver when changing lane by monitoring the area behind the car. It informs the driver with a visual warning signal in the door mirror if there is a vehicle in their blind spot. Also includes Audi Pre-sense Basic that where necessary takes action to help protect the driver and passengers if a potential collision is detected. While Audi Pre-sense Rear monitors vehicles following from behind and if a potential collision is detected the driver is first warned visually via flashing light, then Audi Pre-sense Basic measures are initiated. The system is deactivated when towing.
Vehicle driver assistance and safety systems are not a substitute for attentive driving. Drivers retain full responsibility for providing the necessary inputs for safe control of the vehicle.
