Tourismo Euro V

Safe driving

Most accidents start long before the impact. This might be due to a poor view and unforeseeable dangers. That is why the Tourismo has been equipped with numerous systems to ensure safety and help drivers overcome critical situations on the road.

First of all, it creates an ergonomic workplace for the driver. The driver can operate all the control elements from a position of comfort and has all the instruments needed within line-of-sight. Rear-view mirrors with an excellent all-round view provide even more safety. 

When the vehicle is in motion, various auxiliary electronic systems are in place to aid the driver. The anti-lock brake system (ABS) reduces the risk of wheels locking up during braking. Thanks to electronic pneumatic regulation of braking (EBS), the braking distance becomes shorter as brakes work faster and more precisely. Additional safety is ensured by automatic skid regulation (ASR). It helps the driver to minimise loss of traction of the drive wheels during acceleration and, as a result, helps to prevent lateral skidding of the rear part of the vehicle (rear drive). 

ABS, EBS and ASR form the basis for other electronic safety systems that have been developed, such as the electronic stability system (ESP®) or autonomous emergency braking system (BAS), which the Tourismo is also equipped with.

New systems on-board the Tourismo include the lane control system (SPA) and the emergency braking system (AEBS). While SPA warns the driver about accidentally drifting into a different lane through seat vibration, the AEBS emergency braking system reduces the risk of impact due to a slow-moving vehicle ahead or a sudden obstacle. In cases of these types of threat, a series of signals are automatically sent to the system, which then performs a partial or complete brake in order to prevent an impact entirely or mitigate the consequences of an accident. As such, the system corresponds to the European standards on automatic emergency braking.
