  • Road Sign Assist (RSA) uses a front-facing camera to read stop signs, yield signs, do not enter signs, and speed limits. It conveys this information to you by displaying it on the multi-information display.
  • Lane Tracing Assist is initiated when Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is in use. It reads the markings on the road and vehicles ahead to help you stay centered in their lane.

  • Automatic High Beams turn on when driving in dark areas. It uses a camera built into the windshield to look for headlights and taillights and switches between high and low beam as necessary.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses both cameras and radars to help you maintain a safe following distance from the car ahead. It adjusts speed automatically for your convenience.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection keeps an eye out for pedestrians and vehicles in front of you and warns you to slow down or stop as needed to prevent a collision.
