Audi A8 - Considers all points of view
Side assist in the new Audi A8 can provide a heightened sense of awareness when changing lanes. Its pre-sense technology will detect vehicles in your blind spot, or quickly approaching the car from behind.
At speeds above 40mph, up to 70 metres to the rear of the car and the area along its side up to the driver’s door is monitored by a camera either side of the bumper. If another car is in an adjacent lane, LED lights in the wing mirror will flash a warning before you change lanes.
