Safety Features

In addition to its robustness and passive safety, New Eurocargo is now also equipped with a steering wheel airbag – a brand new safety feature. Active safety is also enhanced, thanks to the new electronic devices that have been installed (as standard) as part of the Driver Assistance System.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVENTION

NEW EUROCARGO PROTECTS THE DRIVER AND THE LOAD

In addition to its robustness and passive safety, New Eurocargo is now also equipped with a steering wheel airbag – a brand new safety feature. Active safety is also enhanced, thanks to the new electronic devices that have been installed (as standard) as part of the Driver Assistance System.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM

The LDWS warns the driver if the vehicle makes an unplanned departure from the lane. Thanks to a camera mounted on the windscreen, the system can recognise the road markings and will sound an alarm if the vehicle changes lane without the driver signalling.

ADVANCED EMERGENCY BRAKING SYSTEM

The AEBS helps to avoid accidents caused should the driver become distracted. The system measures the distance from the vehicle in front, and calculates the time remaining to take action before a potential collision; a double warning system is triggered before the brakes are applied. In the event of a moving obstacle, the system intervenes automatically, reducing the speed to 20 mph (32 kph) to avoid impact. In the case of a fixed obstacle, the system can prevent and moderate the impact by reducing the speed by 6 mph (10 kph).

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

The new safety features do not stop there. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC ) adjusts the speed by maintaining the distance from the vehicle in front. To do this, it uses the same AEBS radar (with a range of 120 metres) to intervene automatically, first by reducing torque, then by applying the engine brake and, finally, the service brake.
