Safety features that watch out for you.

Driver Attention Warning*

Acting like a digital co-pilot, it analyzes driving patterns using vehicle data such as steering angle, steering torque and vehicle position in the traffic lane as you drive. If the system detects driver fatigue or inattention, it presents an audible tone or visual alert on the instrument panel.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Rear Cross-traffic Collision Warning*

Provides audible and visual alerts if a vehicle is detected in the driver's blind spot. In reverse gear, Rear Cross-traffic Collision Warning warns the driver of vehicles approaching from the side.
