Lane Change Assist
Lane Change Assist monitors the areas to the rear of the vehicle and the blind spots on either side. Between 30 and 250 km/h, the system issues a visual warning signal in the exterior mirrors 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.
Lane Keeping Assist
Lane Keeping Assist uses a camera installed in the front end to detect divider line markings on the road. If the car threatens to cross one of the lines, the system steers the vehicle back into the centre of the lane. This correction is accompanied by a soft steering pulse. Of course, you are able to override the system at any time.
The function may be deactivated in specific conditions, e.g. bad weather.
Lane Departure Warning
A camera inside the rear-view mirror casing monitors the road surface in front of the vehicle. When activated, the system will sound a warning tone whenever you steer towards a divider line marking and threaten to leave the current lane without indicating.
Speed limit indicator
The speed limit indicator informs you of speed restrictions and the start and end of ‘no overtaking’ zones detected by the integral camera.
The information is shown on the TFT screen in the instrument cluster and on the screen of PCM. If a road sign is missed – for example due to heavy rain or darkness – the speed limit stored in the navigation module is automatically displayed.
The benefit of this function is that it allows you to concentrate better on the road ahead.
ParkAssist warns you of obstacles detected to the front and rear of the vehicle. Its sensors are integrated harmoniously in the front and rear end. The audible alert is supplemented by a bird’s eye graphical representation of the vehicle on the central display screen showing the proximity to these obstacles.
The reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring and also assists in hitching a trailer. 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.
With Surround View, four cameras located in the front end, exterior mirrors and rear generate an all-round image of the car and its immediate surroundings. In PCM, the driver can choose between a bird’s eye view, side view and corner view.
All Macan models are equipped with an engine immobiliser. It works in response to an automatic exchange of data between the key and vehicle electronics. On correct identification, the engine start will be authorised by the engine electronics.
The Macan models can be optionally equipped with an alarm system including ultrasonic interior surveillance. In the Macan Turbo, the alarm system is fitted as standard, and ultrasonic interior surveillance can be added on request.
The security system monitors all four doors, the bonnet, the entire rear hatch, the interior, the ignition and any trailer that you have hitched to the car.
