Yes it has front and rear sensors and visual display and a button to disable if you wish. They don't come on automatically at low speeds as with some VW's however you can switch them on at low speed by pressing the P button on dash. I think it's a great system and am glad to have it in my Q5 even if I will now only have it for about another 7 days.RRS used to have forward sensors below a certain speed. Which I didn't mind because at least I was more aware of any hazards. But customers complained that it was picking up cycles etc when in slow traffic so they took it off. There was then a button on the dash to turn it on/off and it came on automatically after reverse had been selected.
So Audi have set it up the way most people prefer.
True that - it is a great system.I have to agree with MikeW, it is a very good system. I am surprised just how often I use it, and for the money it costs, i wouldn't be without it.
