Audi side assist with pre sense® rear

The available Audi side assist with Audi pre sense® rear uses radar sensors and optical warnings to help alert you if a vehicle is in your blind spot. Continuously monitoring surrounding vehicles and based on your own speed, the system can initiate emergency measures like closing the sunroof and windows and pre-tensioning seatbelts if a critical situation is detected. Illuminated LED lights help alert you and your passengers to vehicles or cyclists approaching from behind when the doors are opened.
