Not to nitpick but your contradicting yourself.
Knowing you have an alert may cause you to pay less attention, such as when you're looking at your navigation - which I rely on voice guidance over visual. You may be more apt to be distracted when you have an audio alert of whats happening in front of you.
Obviously, do as you wish but I feel forward alerts drive complacency. Unlike blind spot and rear cross traffic, those alert you of things you can't see. You should always be heads up and looking forward. Autonomous braking applies the brakes quicker than any human can when it perceives an collision. That is the benefit of the system.
To me, this system sounds annoying as it will beep similar to parking sensors. At least those are on only in reverse. This system would beep at any perceived risk of collision. The icon on my HUD flashes when it thinks there is risk of collision, even though I know I'm not. If it were audible in the CX3 I'd disable. it.
