1. A driver assistance system for a motor vehicle, comprising:a first assistance subsystem configured to capture a first sub-area of an environment of the motor vehicle and a second assistance subsystem configured to capture a second sub-area of the environment, wherein the first assistance subsystem is configured to generate a first image of the first sub-area and the second assistance subsystem is configured to generate a second image of the second sub-area and the driver assistance system has a display device for displaying at least the first image, wherein the display device is configured to display a first augmented reality, wherein the first augmented reality is generated by superimposing the first image with first assistance information of the first assistance subsystem generated on the basis of the first image as first augmented reality content and by superimposing second assistance information of the second assistance subsystem generated on the basis of the second image as second augmented reality content;
wherein the first augmented reality content is constructed as a driving channel and the second augmented reality content is constructed as longitudinal distance information to an object or transverse distance information to an object; and
wherein the driver assistance system is configured to display the first augmented reality content and the second augmented reality content during semi-autonomous or autonomous driving of the motor vehicle.
