Intuitive Parking Assist

Intuitive Parking Assist utilizes inconspicuous sensors integrated into the front, rear and corners of the bumpers that are designed to detect surrounding objects.

Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control*

The available Pre-Collision System* is designed to watch the road ahead for obstacles and warn you of their presence with beeps and visible indications.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* can help maintain a preset distance from the car traveling in front of you by automatically reducing the throttle and even applying the brakes. Once the road clears, the vehicle returns to its preset speed. ( VIDEO: PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM: Video ID: 2686578223001)
