The New (500)RED Convertible features advanced technology to make every drive safer, easier and more comfortable.
AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING
The New (500)RED Convertible can automatically brake for you to help avoid or mitigate collisions with the preceding vehicle, pedestrian, or cyclists, when driving up to 70mph. At first, the car alerts the driver with an acoustic and visual warning, and if the driver does not respond, the system stops the vehicle.
The Keyless Go system will make starting your car easier than ever before.
The New (500)RED Convertible helps you keep awake when you are tired. The system can detect the initial signs of fatigue by monitoring lateral movements of the vehicle, advising you to take a break: the car warns you with an acoustic and visual signal on the cluster.
If you change lane without indicating, Lane Assist will automatically warn you and gently move the steering wheel to bring you back into the lane.
SAFER IN THE TRAFFIC
The new Traffic Sign Recognition system uses a camera mounted on the inside of the windscreen to read the speed limits on road signs along the journey. The data is sent, in real-time, to the instrument cluster display where the driver is alerted. Intelligent Speed Assist works with the Speed Limiter when activated, identifying the current speed limit and helping you reduce speed if you need to.
In the event of a severe accident causing the deployment of the airbags, an automatic emergency call will be forwarded directly from a dedicated in-vehicle system of the New (500)RED Convertible 112 Emergency Number. Meanwhile, your position and vehicle status will be immediately transmitted, to allow a faster rescue. Also, an SOS button will be easily reachable in front of the interior rear mirror, to receive quick help in case you need it.* *The system only activates in case of severe accident and airbag deployment.
