Citroen C3: Active Safety Brake with Collision Risk Alert and Intelligent emergency braking assistance / Collision Risk Alert

This function warns the driver that their vehicle is at risk of a collision with the vehicle in front or with a pedestrian present in their traffic lane.

Modifying the alert trigger threshold

This trigger threshold determines the sensitivity with which the function warns of the risk of collision.

Citroen C3. Collision Risk Alert The threshold is set via theDriving / Vehicle touch screen menu.

  • Select one of the three pre-defined thresholds:
  • "Distant".
  • Normal".
  • Close".

The last threshold selected is memorised when the ignition is switched off.

Operation

Depending on the degree of risk of collision detected by the system and the alert trigger threshold chosen by the driver, several different levels of alert may be triggered and displayed in the instrument panel.

The system takes account of the vehicle dynamics, the speed of your vehicle and the one in front, the environmental conditions and the operation of the vehicle (actions on the pedals, the steering wheel, etc.) to trigger the alert at the best moment.

Citroen C3. Collision Risk Alert Level 1 (orange): visual alert only, indicating that the vehicle in front is very close.

The message "Vehicle close" is displayed.

Citroen C3. Collision Risk Alert Level 2 (red): visual and audible alert, indicating that a collision is imminent. The message "Brake!" is displayed.

Citroen C3. Collision Risk Alert Where the speed of your vehicle is too high approaching another vehicle, the first level of alert may not be displayed: the level 2 alert may be displayed directly. Important: the level 1 alert is not displayed when there is a stationary obstacle or when the "Close" trigger threshold has been selected.
