ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (ACC) W. LOW SPEED FOLLOW
The Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow system allows the vehicle to independently follow the car in front at a set distance, starting and stopping appropriately with the flow of traffic.

COLLISION MITIGATION BRAKING SYSTEM (CMBS)
The CMBS uses a radar transmitter to determine the distance and closing speed of the vehicle or object in front of you and is designed to react accordingly when a programmed threshold is exceeded. If speed is not reduced, CMBS is engineered to gently pull your seat belt and automatically begin light braking. If it determines an impact is unavoidable, it is designed to automatically apply strong braking to help reduce speed and mitigate the force of the collision.

CROSS TRAFFIC MONITOR (CTM) SYSTEM
The Cross Traffic Monitor uses the same rear bumper radar sensors as Blind Spot Information (BSI) System to detect vehicles. The system actively monitors while the vehicle is in reverse. If another vehicle is about to cross behind, the system will issue an audible and visual alert on the rear-view camera screen.

FORWARD COLLISION WARNING (FCW)
The Forward Collision Warning system uses an onboard camera that is designed to monitor the gap between you and the vehicle or object in front of you. If that gap begins to close too quickly, the system is designed to use both audible and visual warnings to inform you to reduce your speed.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING (LDW) SYSTEM
The Lane Departure Warning system is designed to trigger both an audible and visual warning to alert the driver. This connection between car and road is achieved through an onboard camera that is designed to monitor the vehicle's lane position at all times.

LANE KEEPING ASSIST SYSTEM (LKAS)
Lane Keeping Assist is a driver assist system that works in conjunction with LDW to alert the driver if the vehicle begins to drift out of a detected lane. LKAS goes a step further by actively applying steering torque to help keep the vehicle within the lane.

ROAD DEPARTURE MITIGATION (RDM) SYSTEM
Road Departure Mitigation is designed to alert and assist the driver if the vehicle is about to unexpectedly leave the road. The system, which uses a feature similar to LKAS, will apply strong steering correction and braking force to help stop the vehicle before a serious accident occurs.
