The front collision avoidance first warns the driver of any potential collision hazard, and if the danger persists, it provides gradual braking in accordance with urban passenger transport. Turn assist helps to detect critical situations in time when turning and greatly increases the safety of unprotected traffic participants such as pedestrians and cyclists, especially in urban traffic. The 5-stage retarder integrated into the automatic transmission, together with the brake system, ensures smooth deceleration of the vehicle, shortens the braking distance and extends the life of the brake pads. Despite the increase in dimensions, Conecto now weighs less, thanks to its innovative and lightweight bodywork.
