- Front Assist: warns you if the vehicle in front suddenly slows down. If the driver doesn’t react, the car applies the brakes and can even stop the car if necessary;
- High Beam Assist: ensures that oncoming traffic is not overwhelmed by the driver’s headlights and automatically flips between the two settings on busy roads;
- Lane Assist: uses the car’s video camera to analyze the road markings. It detects if the driver is straying out of the lane and steers the car back on track;
- Adaptive Cruise Control: measures the distance, direction and speed of the vehicles in front, using a radar. The technology controls the accelerator and ensures that the driver is driving at a safe distance from the front vehicle;
- Electric Stability Control: reacts faster than the driver in emergency situations. It monitors the steering, wheels, brakes and the accelerator, applying the brakes to individual wheels if it detects instability;
- Tiredness Recognition System: monitors the driver’s steering wheel movements. If it detects signs of sleepiness, it sends an alert suggesting the driver takes a break;
- Automatic Post-Collision Braking System: automatically and immediately slows down the vehicle until it comes to a complete stop, preventing or, at least, minimizing further collisions.
