Audi Q3: Audi pre sense basic

Applies to: vehicles with Audi pre sense basic

Audi pre sense basic is automatically active at speeds of approximately 20 mph (30 km/h) and higher. Audi pre sense basic can trigger the Audi pre sense preemptive safety measures during emergency braking and dangerous braking maneuvers as well as in unstable driving situations, such as oversteering or understeering.

The message Audi pre sense will warn you about the danger.

WARNING

Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.

Audi pre sense front

Applies to: vehicles with Audi pre sense front

Within the limits of the system, Audi pre sense front can warn about an impending front end collision and brake the vehicle strongly, if necessary.

The system uses the data from the front radar sensors and is available at speeds above approximately 3 mph (5 km/h).

Driving situations

The situations to which the system reacts depends on the vehicle speed.

Up to speeds of approximately 40 mph (65 km/h), the system may react to the following situations:

  • Pedestrians1) moving across the lane
  • Pedestrians1) in your lane traveling in the same direction as your vehicle

1) This is not available in some countries.

Up to speeds of approximately 50 mph (85 km/h), the system may react to the following situations:

  • When approaching a stationary vehicle

Up to speeds of approximately 155 mph (250 km/h), the system may react to the following situations:

  • A vehicle driving ahead clearly applies the brakes
  • When approaching a vehicle ahead that is clearly traveling more slowly
  • When approaching a stopped vehicle, as long as the system has already detected that this vehicle is driving in the same direction as your vehicle.

Prewarning

The system can provide warnings about detected dangers at speeds above approximately 20 mph (30 km/h). Audi pre sense appears in the instrument cluster and an audio signal plays.

A brief application of the brakes

If a collision with vehicles is imminent, there may be an acute warning using a brief application of, the brakes. You will also be warned about the danger by an indicator in the instrument cluster display. You may only be able to avoid a collision by swerving or braking strongly.

Automatic braking force increase

If there is an impending collision and you are not applying the brakes enough, the braking force may be increased, depending on the situation.

Automatic braking

If you do not react to the acute warning, the system may apply the brakes with increasing braking force in order to reduce the speed of impact in the event of a collision.

If the brakes were applied until the vehicle stopped, Please take over! will appear in the instrument cluster and you must take over control of the vehicle.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • Audi pre sense front cannot overcome natural physical laws. It is a system designed to assist and it cannot prevent a collision in every circumstance. The driver must always intervene.

    The driver is always responsible for braking at the correct time. Do not let the increased safety provided tempt you into taking risks. This could increase your risk of a collision.

  • Among other things, Audi pre sense front does not react to cyclists, pedestrians who are stationary, stopped, crossing at an angle or traveling toward your vehicle, groups of pedestrians, animals, crossing vehicles, oncoming vehicles, or objects, such as posts, guardrails, and railway vehicles.
  • Audi pre sense front may be limited or unavailable in curves or when it is dark.
  • Loose objects can be thrown around the vehicle interior during sudden driving or braking maneuvers, which increases the risk of an accident. Store objects securely while driving.
  • Make sure that every passenger in the vehicle has his or her safety belt fastened correctly and follows the instructions for proper seating.
  • In trailer mode, the braking behavior of the vehicle and trailer may be different than usual during automatic braking.

Tips

If you switch off the ESC, Audi pre sense also switches off automatically.

Audi pre sense rear

Applies to: vehicles with Audi pre sense rear

Within the limits of the system, Audi pre sense rear uses data from radar sensors in the rear area of the vehicle and calculates the probability of a rear-end collision with the vehicle behind you.

Audi pre sense preemptive safety measures can be initiated if the risk of a collision with the vehicle behind you is detected.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • Audi pre sense rear does not react to pedestrians, animals, crossing objects, and objects not detected as vehicles.

Tips

Audi pre sense rear functions may also switch off if there is a malfunction in the side assist system.
