Parking Distance Warning-Reverse (PDW-R)
When you back into a parking spot, how much room do you have left? As you reverse, audible beeps alert you to the distance to obstacles behind you.
Protection includes front air bags for the driver and front-seat passenger, two air bags at the sides, and two curtain airbags running the length of the cabin.
Hill-start Assist Control (HAC)
It can be nerve-racking to pull away from a standing start when you’re on a steep upward incline. HAC stops you from rolling backwards.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
In the event of sudden braking or turning, ESC activates to regulate engine torque and distribute braking force independently, slowing you down safely with maximum control.
