Pre-Collision System (PCS)

This system uses a grill-mounted radar and a camera to help detect pedestrians and vehicles under certain conditions. When detected, this system activates an audio and visual alert in addition to brake assist if the driver applies the brakes, followed by automatic braking, if the driver does not brake in time.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)

This system is designed to use a camera to detect white and yellow lane markings. If the vehicle starts to deviate from a lane, LDA W/STEERING ASSIST alerts the driver with an audio-visual alert and steering wheel vibration. Some vehicles are also equipped with Lane Keep Assist, which helps control steering to make it easier for the driver to remain within lane markings.

Intelligent High Beam

This system uses a camera to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and the taillights of vehicles ahead, and then automatically switches between high beams and low beams so as not to distract other drivers.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

This system uses a grill-mounted radar designed to detect the preceding vehicle and determine its speed. It then adjusts vehicle speed (within a set range) to help maintain a preset distance between vehicles. The driver can adjust the following distance via a convenient steering wheel-mounted control.
