Safety

EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking

Reverse Automatic Braking

With available Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to help avoid objects behind you.

Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set speed and will automatically adjust to keep a safe distance from the car ahead. It is also capable of bringing your vehicle to a full stop and resume your settings as traffic begins to flow again.

7 airbags standard includes Driver knee airbag

7 airbags standard across all models including a Driver’s Knee Airbag protect you in the event of a collision.

EyeSight Lane Sway and Departure warning

Lane Departure and Sway Warning both activate a chime sound when your vehicle begins to drift or is too close to another lane. This alert helps to keep you on the straight and narrow.

Fewer blind spots, maximized visibility

Fewer blind spots ensure that you can maintain a clear view from the driver’s seat of your loved ones around the vehicle.

EyeSight Pre-Collision Throttle management

Pre-collision Throttle Management is designed to cut power from an absent-minded start, if it detects a potentially hazardous object is in your way.

Rear Cross traffic alert
