In order to give you the best possible support we need to know which car you have, since functionalities, services and features may differ between models. By selecting a car model your search will include information from the owner's manual for that specific model. We do several model year updates every year. Each new update comes with a specific model year code that you will find at the back of your Owner’s Manual. The code is written as ATXXXX, for example AT1446.

Collision warning* – Cyclist detection

The system can detect a cyclist and auto-brake if certain parameters are fulfilled.

Optimal example of what the system considers to be a cyclist: clear body/bike contours, straight from behind and directly in front of the vehicle

Optimal example of what the system considers to be a cyclist: clear body/bike contours, straight from behind and directly in front of the vehicle

In order to help detect a cyclist, the system has to receive clear information about the contours of the cyclist's body and the bike. It has to able to clearly detect the bike, the cyclist's head, arms, shoulders, legs and upper and lower body combined with the person's pattern of movement when cycling.

The function only detects cyclists from behind who are moving in the same direction as your vehicle

The Cyclist Detection feature requires the following in order to function:

  • The cyclist must be an adult riding an "adult-size" bike
  • The bike must be equipped with an approved and clearly visible rear-facing red reflector that is mounted at least 27 in. (70 cm) above the road surface
  • The feature can only detect a cyclist straight from behind and who is moving in the same direction as your vehicle
  • A cyclist who is to the left or right of your vehicle may be detected late or not at all.
  • The camera's capacity to see a cyclist at dawn or dusk is limited, much as it is for the human eye.
  • The camera's function is deactivated and will not detect a cyclist in darkness or in tunnels, even if there is street lighting in the area.
  • For optimal cyclist detection, City Safety™ must be activated.

Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however, intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is always responsible for operating the vehicle in a safe manner.

The system cannot detect a bike/cyclist if:

  • He/she is wearing loose-fitting clothing that may obscure body contours
  • The bike is approaching your vehicle from the side
  • The bike is not equipped with a rear-facing red reflector
  • The bike is carrying large objects
  • Most of the cyclist's body or the bike itself cannot be "seen" by the system's camera
