New technology alerts drivers to potential dangers. The Forward Collison Alert warns of imminent impacts ahead, and the Forward Braking System can help stop the vehicle before impact. Side Blind Zone Alert notifies drivers when there’s a vehicle in the blind spot. Lane Keep Assist alerts the driver when the technology senses that the vehicle is drifting outside of the lane lines. A rear camera and Rear Cross Traffic Alert help the driver avoid collisions from behind.
