  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Light Assist
  • Lane Assist
  • Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking
  • Front Assist
  • Rear Traffic Alert

Adaptive Cruise Control

Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps maintain a preset distance from the car in front of you. When activated, if the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors can detect the change and your car follows suit.21

Blind Spot Monitor

When driving, if you attempt to change lanes, the Blind Spot Monitor can help alert you to cars that may be in your blind spot. The Active Blind Spot Monitor (available when vehicle is equipped with Lane Assist) on select models can also counter-steer within the limits of Lane Assist to help keep you in your lane if you attempt to change lanes when a vehicle is in your blind spot. In addition to the visual warning in the side mirrors, the steering wheel can vibrate.22

Light Assist

Available High Beam Control (Light Assist) helps provide better visibility on dark roads by turning on your high beams at certain speeds. A camera mounted at the base of the rearview mirror turns your high beams on when conditions warrant it on dark or poorly lit roads. It then turns them off again if another car approaches or drives in front of you.23

Lane Assist

When moving, the available Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. Within the limits of the system, Lane Assist can help steer to help keep you in the current lane.24

Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking

Available Park Distance Control has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. If you get too close, the system beeps as a warning. Maneuver Braking (included in Park Distance Control) can apply emergency braking force automatically to help mitigate and in best case prevent collisions with stationary obstacles while you maneuver the vehicle in reverse gear.25

Front Assist

The available Forward Collision Warning (included in Front Assist) system can help monitor traffic and can alert you acoustically and visually to a potential front-end collision with the vehicle moving ahead. If it senses that a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can support the driver with increased brake pressure or, under certain circumstances, it can apply the brakes automatically. The available Pedestrian Monitoring (included in Front Assist) feature can warn of pedestrians crossing in front of the vehicle and, under certain circumstances can, brake automatically to help prevent or mitigate the outcome of a collision with a pedestrian if the driver doesn’t respond adequately to the warnings.26

Rear Traffic Alert

The available Rear Traffic Alert comes in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can alert you to vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse, and can even help brake the vehicle if needed.27
