To keep driving safety and performance, the following systems operate automatically in response to various driving situations.
Be aware, however, that these systems are supplementary and should not be relied upon too heavily when operating the vehicle.
◆ ABS (Anti-lock Brake System)
Helps to prevent wheel lock when the brakes are applied suddenly, or if the brakes are applied while driving on a slippery road surface
◆ Brake assist
Generates an increased level of braking force after the brake pedal is depressed when the system detects a panic stop situation
◆ VSC (Vehicle Stability Control)
Helps the driver to control skidding when swerving suddenly or turning on slippery road surfaces.
◆ Enhanced VSC (Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control)
Provides cooperative control of the ABS, TRAC, VSC and EPS.
Helps to maintain directional stability when swerving on slippery road surfaces by controlling steering performance.
◆ Secondary Collision Brake
When the airbag sensor detects a collision and the system operates, the brakes and stop lights are automatically controlled to reduce the vehicle speed and help reduce the possibility of further damage due to a secondary collision
◆ TRAC (Traction Control)
Helps to maintain drive power and prevent the drive wheels from spinning when starting the vehicle or accelerating on slippery roads
◆ Active Cornering Assist (ACA) (if equipped)
Helps to prevent the vehicle from sliding to the outer side by performing inner wheel brake control when attempting to accelerate while turning
◆ Hill-start assist control
Helps to reduce the backward movement of the vehicle when starting on an uphill
◆ EPS (Electric Power Steering)
Employs an electric motor to reduce the amount of effort needed to turn the steering wheel
◆ BSM (Blind Spot Monitor) (if equipped)
◆ Dynamic Torque Control AWD system (if equipped)
Automatically switches from front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive (AWD) according to the driving conditions, helping to ensure reliable handling and stability. Examples of conditions where the system will switch to AWD are when cornering, going uphill, starting off or accelerating, and when the road surface is slippery due to snow, rain, etc.
