Lane-Keeping System

Lane-Keeping System scans your vehicle’s position between the lines in the road ahead and can alert you if you’re starting to drift. If you drift a few times, you’ll see a coffee cup icon on the windshield, letting you know it’s time to take a break.10,*

Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control

Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps you keep pace on your journey and features Speed Sign Recognition that can slow down your vehicle if the traffic ahead has stopped or slowed. ACC with Stop-and-Go can even help you come to a complete stop. As soon as things clear, you’ll resume your set speed. * The added Lane Centering feature also scans lane markings to help you keep your vehicle centered between the lines.10
*If vehicle is stopped for more than three seconds, driver must intervene and press “RES” button or accelerator pedal to resume system operation.

Pre-Collision Assist® With Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)

This feature scans the road ahead and can alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians detected in your path. If an impact becomes imminent and you don’t take corrective action, the brakes can apply automatically. But don’t worry – they’ll only activate if needed. *
*Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment and the need to control the vehicle. Pre-collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking detects pedestrians, but not in all conditions, and can help avoid or reduce a collision. It does not replace safe driving. See Owner’s Manual for details and limitations.
