What car safety features should a business car manager include on an SME’s company car policy?

Euro NCAP safety star systems provide a very clear indication of a car’s ability to provide passive safety features in the event of an accident.

But what about those safety systems that are active – that help company car drivers avoid crashes in the first place?

There are plenty around, with perhaps the best known being Volvo’s City Safe which brings the car to a halt at speeds up to 30mph. Automatically. Ford has its own version in the Ford Focus, available as part of its £750 driver assistance package.

Other active braking systems include:

  • Mercedes Pre-Safe
  • Audi Pre-Sense
  • VW Front Assist
  • BMW Adaptive Brake Assistant
  • Infiniti Intelligent Brake Assist
  • Ford Forward Alert with Brake Support
  • Honda Civic
  • Mazda Smart City Braking
