The new Eurocargo truck protects the driver and the load: in addition to its robustness, the vehicle is now also equipped with a steering wheel airbag – a brand new safety feature. Active safety is also improved, due to new electronic devices installed (as standard) as part of the driver assistance system.
The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) will warn the driver if the vehicle makes an unwanted departure from the lane. The camera mounted on the windscreen means the system can recognise the road markings and will sound an alarm if the vehicle changes lane without the driver signalling.
In addition to the Electronic Vehicle Stability Control (EVSC), the Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS) helps to avoid accidents caused when the driver is distracted.
The system measures the distance from the vehicle in front, and calculates the time of a potential collision; a double warning system is then triggered before the brakes are actuated.
In the event of a moving obstacle, the system intervenes automatically, reducing the speed to 32 km/h to avoid impact. In the case of a fixed obstacle, the system can prevent and moderate the impact by reducing the speed by 10 km/h. Warning: the AEBS does not guarantee that you will avoid collisions and it cannot eliminate the risks of driving without due care and attention.
To improve driving safety and visibility, it is equipped with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) as standard.
