Assistance systems

Adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS)

Available as an option in conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), this system regulates the speed of your 718 fully independently in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. Radar sensors inside the front end scan the road ahead. Let’s imagine you’ve selected a cruising speed but have begun to gain on the vehicle in front because it is driving more slowly – the system reduces the speed of your vehicle by restricting throttle or gently applying the brakes until your chosen distance from the vehicle in front is restored.

Your 718 now continues to maintain this distance from the vehicle ahead. If it brakes even more, adaptive cruise control will reduce your speed accordingly – even down to a halt. The system also increases the state of readiness of the brakes the moment it detects that your car is beginning to gain on the vehicle in front. On detecting a risk of collision, the system issues an audible and visual warning, and this is accompanied by a brief jolt of the brakes. If panic braking by the driver is detected, the brake pressure applied is boosted to achieve the maximum braking force that the system is able to provide.

Lane Change Assist

Optional Lane Change Assist uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the rear of the vehicle and the blind spots on either side. Above a speed of 15 km/h, the system issues a visual warning signal in the window triangle trim whenever a vehicle rapidly approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots. In this way, Lane Change Assist improves comfort and safety, particularly on motorways. However, the system does not actively intervene to control the vehicle and can be deactivated at any time.

ParkAssist and reversing camera

Featuring four inconspicuous sensors in the rear end, optional ParkAssist audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. An intermittent warning tone increases in rapidity as the obstacle is approached.

ParkAssist can be optionally upgraded to include monitoring of the front end with four additional sensors. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead.

The optional reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.

Speed limit indicator

The optional camera-based speed limit indicator informs you of speed restrictions and ‘no overtaking’ zones (start and end). Notifications appear on the display in the instrument cluster and on the screen of PCM.
