Top 20 Fleet Cars

Is your company car fitted with the latest collision avoidance technology. We look at the top 20 most popular fleet cars.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) uses cameras and sensors to monitor the road ahead and will apply the brakes if the driver fails to respond. AEB systems can lead to a 38% reduction in real-world, rear-end accidents. These systems are also now capable of working between 1mph and 50mph, and can also detect pedestrians, cyclist and motorbikes.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

In the UK, 39% of accidents on motorways and dual carriageways are caused by a car hitting the rear of another vehicle. Adaptive Cruise Control uses a radar to monitor the car ahead and keeps a fixed safe distance. The system might also include ‘Stop & Go’ or ‘Queue Assist’ functionality, that can slow the car to a complete stop and start driving again once the road is clear.

Lane Keep Assist (LKA)

In the UK, 20% of people killed or seriously injured are down to single vehicle crashes where a vehicle leaves the road completely. Systems such as Lane Keep Assist (LKA) that actively steer you back in to the lane if it detects you’re drifting over the white line are valuable safety technologies.
