Safer vehicles means insurance discounts!


Does your vehicle have Automatic Emergency Braking? Aviva is now offering a 15% discount to auto policies on all vehicles with an automatic emergency braking feature.


What is automatic emergency braking? This system is a combination of technology including sensors and brake controls to help reduce the chance of collisions. Not all systems are identical, some features include warning the driver when the vehicle in front of them is moving at a much slower speed than their own. Other systems will automatically apply the braking system to slow the vehicle or bring it to a complete stop to prevent a high speed collision. This system goes hand in hand with many other collision prevention systems such as lane change assist, automatic high beams, and blind spot monitoring.


Manufacturers are upping the importance of adding these features to new production. Many brands such as Honda, Subaru, and Hyundai are already adding these features into their vehicles. And will move towards offering the automatic emergency braking feature as a standard option. Brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and Toyota have already moved towards offering Automatic Emergency Braking as a standard feature.


Aviva is the first insurance company in Canada to offer a discount for insurers with vehicles equipped with Automatic Emergency Braking. The discount is available to all Aviva-insured drivers and will be applied automatically upon purchase or renewal.
