Assistance for the road ahead


Travel Assist

Simplify your drive with travel assist

Welcome to an easier commute. IQ.DRIVE has hands-on semi-autonomous driving capability that can help support you by steering, accelerating, and braking within your lane while you keep your hands on the steering wheel. Using a camera and sensors, it keeps you centered in your lane and maintains your preset distance from the vehicle ahead, but also works without a vehicle in front of you. 


Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Reduce road-trip stress with preset speeds and distances between cars

IQ.DRIVE capabilities help the vehicle maintain a preset speed and 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 up to the preset speed and/or preset distance. 

An extra set of eyes on the road


Active Blind Spot Monitor

Alerts and counter-steering for your blind spots

IQ.DRIVE technology can help sense what you might miss. If you attempt to change lanes, it can help alert you to other cars that may be in your blind spot. IQ.DRIVE features 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. 


Rear Traffic Alert

Alerts for vehicles crossing your path when reversing

IQ.DRIVE has alerts that come in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can help alert you to detected vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse and can even help brake the vehicle if needed.

Driving peace of mind


Front Assist

Keeping an eye on the road ahead to help keep you safe

IQ.DRIVE assistance can help monitor traffic and can alert you acoustically and visually to a potential rear-end collision with the vehicle in front of you. If it senses that a collision is imminent, IQ.DRIVE technology can support the driver with increased brake pressure or, if the driver does not react at all, it can apply the brakes automatically. IQ.DRIVE features can also help warn of pedestrians crossing in front of the vehicle and, under certain circumstances, can brake automatically to help mitigate the outcome of a collision with a pedestrian if the driver doesn’t respond to the warnings.


Emergency Assist

Ready to safely take over and stop the vehicle if you lose the ability to drive

IQ.DRIVE technology can help determine if a driver is no longer able to operate their vehicle by monitoring steering wheel activity and, after numerous alerts, is designed to bring the vehicle to a controlled stop if driver is non-responsive.


Lane Assist

Keeping you safely within the lanes

When moving above 37 mph, IQ.DRIVE features can help sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. Using a camera mounted in the rearview mirror assembly that can recognize certain lane markings and warn you if you begin to move out of your lane.
