Front Assist with City Emergency Braking

Upgraded for the T6.1, Front Assist with City Emergency Braking warns the driver of impending collisions and, if necessary, will autonomously apply the brakes. On the T6.1, it even responds to potential roadside hazards such as cyclists and pedestrians. This system helps keep drivers and cargo safe, as well as reducing the risk of accidents and subsequent costs through damage repair and downtime.

The Transporter 6.1 Dropside features an advanced safety system that brakes automatically after a collision to prevent a second impact. After a short delay, the vehicle begins a phased braking action down to 6 mph, during which time the driver can take over at any point.

Connected and comfortable

Setting off for the site or heading home? Either way, the Transporter 6.1 Dropside’s interior gets you there feeling relaxed.
