Opel Corsa: Driver assistance systems / Forward collision alert

The forward collision alert may help to avoid or reduce the harm caused by front-end crashes.

Opel Corsa. Forward collision alert

The forward collision alert uses the front camera in the windscreen and depending on the vehicle configuration a radar unit located behind the front bumper to detect a vehicle directly ahead, in the path.

If a vehicle directly ahead is approached too quickly, a warning chime sounds and a message is displayed in the Driver Information Centre.


Forward collision alert is just a warning system and does not apply the brakes. When approaching a vehicle ahead too rapidly, it may not provide you enough time to avoid a collision.

The driver accepts full responsibility for the appropriate following distance based on traffic, weather and visibility conditions.

The complete attention of the driver is always required while driving. The driver must always be ready to take action and apply the brakes.


The usage of a license plate support may have an impact on the proper operation of the radar unit and may limit sensor perfomance. Vehicles driving ahead, pedestrians or other objects located in front of the vehicle may not be detected by the system.

Do not use a license plate support on the front bumper to ensure proper system functionality.


In case the system requires a service, a message is displayed in the Driver Information Centre. If the system does not work properly, vehicle messages are displayed in the Driver Information Centre...


Depending on the vehicle configuration and the detected objects, there are several operational speed ranges. On vehicles equipped only with front camera, the forward collision alert operates from 5 km/h to 80 km/h when a vehicle has been detected...
