AEB (at or close to 80km/H) has saved our lifes

Post by papayacheng » Sun May 27, 2018 12:39 am

DS was cruise controlled at 80km/H , suddenly a car ( with 4 teenagers in it) pull out from a side road without giving way, my wife had no time to react or brake, DS T-Boned into this car. Wife came out of car with just a few airbag bruises. All 4 teenagers were able to get out of their car. As you can imagine if there was no AEB the cars and passengers would have suffered much more damage ( possibly with casualties) . Even the paramedic came to the scene did not believe the car was travelling at 80km/H. The lesson learned: AEB ( high speed) saves lifes, Thank you JLR.

Most importantly none of you were injured and it’s certainly of interest to all members on hear who have doubted the effectiveness of the AEB on the DS.

Glad no one was seriously injured, definitely one of the advantages of adaptive cruise control is the addition of forward collision alert and breaking coupled with AEB.

Our DS does not have adaptive cruise control, so it was definitely the AEB saving us.

Very good to hear no one was hurt. Amazing how this technology passively sits in the background and jumps into action to help save lives.

ACC wasn’t available on DS until MY17 certainly in Germany.

Yep the standard AEB is reduce impact at that speed , the forward collision with active cruise control is an Avoid.

Interestingly on NCAP , Volvo and Mercedes is some of the few that gets “avoid” in most higher speed instigations.

One of the details below the standard 5 star ratings , I remember we discussed this at length in the blow up crocodile thread. ( Forward collision avoidance ) is not standard fit with JLR and it should have been.

Agree! 2014 Merc c-class only scores 1.8 pts in AEB interurban test which is lower than DS and late model XC60. GLC scores 2 pts which is still lower than DS 2.5pts
