Adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS)
Available as an option in conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), this enhanced version of cruise control actively regulates the speed of your vehicle in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. A radar sensor scans the road ahead up to a distance of 200 m. In addition, coasting is now possible even while adaptive cruise control is active.
If Porsche Active Safe (PAS) detects that your vehicle is approaching the vehicle in front too quickly, the system issues an audible and a visual warning. Where necessary, this may be accompanied by a brief jolt of the brakes and the initiation of targeted braking. During this process, any braking by the driver is boosted to achieve the maximum braking force that the system is able to provide.
Lane Change Assist
New Lane Change Assist, available as an option, uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the rear of the vehicle and the blind spots on either side. Above a speed of 15 km/h, the system issues a visual warning signal in the door mirror panel whenever a vehicle rapidly approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots. In this way, Lane Change Assist improves comfort and safety, particularly on motorways. However, the system does not actively intervene to control the vehicle and can be deactivated at any time.
ParkAssist and reversing camera
Featuring four inconspicuous sensors in the rear end, optional ParkAssist audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. An intermittent warning tone increases in rapidity as the obstacle is approached.
Option: ParkAssist upgrade to include monitoring of the front end with four additional sensors. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead.
The optional reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.
Speed limit indicator
The optional camera-based speed limit indicator informs you of speed restrictions and ‘no overtaking’ zones (start and end). Notifications appear on the display in the instrument cluster and on the screen of PCM.
