DAF Euro 6 vehicles have been designed to offer maximum safety for the driver as well as for the other road users. Of course, safety is not just about systems that protect the driver in case of an accident.
Driver safety Safety for the driver is paramount. The reinforced cab structure with pre-programmed front and rear crumple zones plays an important role here, as does the unique energy-absorbing cab suspension. This means that the cab moves backwards in a controlled manner if there is a rearendcollision. It remains as intact as possible and is still connected to the chassis. An airbag is available as an option. The dashboard has shockabsorbing zones to limit or prevent potential injury to the knees in the event of a collision. And DAF’s unique Night Lock provides simple and effective protection against break-ins and burglary.
Safety systems The Euro 6 DAF CF and DAF XF are delivered as standard with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), which helps to prevent jack-knifing and overturning, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDWS). These advanced safety and comfort systems are available alongside DAF’s Advanced Emergency Braking (AEBS), which helps to prevent collisions or to limit their consequences. A camera/monitor system for an even better view on the front and the passenger side of the truck is also optionally available.
DAF Transport Efficiency Also available as an option are Predictive Cruise Control and Predictive Shifting. Both innovative technologies contribute to DAF’s Transport Efficiency philosophy and can reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 3%, especially when driving on hilly routes.

Predictive Cruise Control (PCC) uses advanced GPS-technology to determine the exact position of the vehicle and to know which driving conditions have to be taken account of over the next 1 to 2 kilometres.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a cruise control system with enhanced functionality that helps the driver to keep a safe distance to other traffic ahead and alerts the driver if manual intervention is required.
To protect truck drivers against intrusions and robberies in their cabs, DAF has become the first truck manufacturer to introduce a night lock for the doors. It can be easily and quickly mounted to every DAF XF.
