Compared to premium models, more midsize cars in Germany now feature parking assistance. Remote parking, automatic lane-keeping support, drowsiness detection: these are just some of the many features that buyers of new cars no longer want to do without. Installation rates of driver assistance systems are rising steadily. “More and more car buyers want a vehicle that anticipates and even intervenes in driving manoeuvres,” said Dr. Dirk Hoheisel, member of the Bosch board of management. When it comes to such systems, compact and midsize cars are better equipped. These are the findings from a Bosch evaluation of the 2017 statistics on newly registered cars.
Whether proximity alarms, parking assists, or reversing cameras, 55 per cent of newly registered compact and midsize cars in Germany come equipped with at least one parking assistance system as standard. In contrast, this figure is only about 25 per cent for premium vehicles. Overall, 45 per cent of newly registered cars across all vehicle classes have at least one parking assistance system fitted as a form of standardisation.
The analysis shows that parking assistance systems top the list of desired features in Germany, followed by automatic emergency braking systems. When a rear-end collision is imminent, these systems help either avoid it or mitigate its consequences.
