"Fiat has won the EuroNCAP Advanced award for its new "city brake control", which detects the presence of vehicles or obstacles in front of the car and automatically applies the brakes to avoid the collision or to reduce its consequences if the driver fails to do so.":

I am happy that it says "reduce its consequences if the driver fails to do so". There were some issues back in the day when CitySafety debuted on the Volvo XC60. The car is not always going to NOT hit something. It is going to do its best not to hit something.
