Available adaptive cruise control functions just like traditional cruise control — but with one important difference. When the sensors detect traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support can alert you if it senses a possible collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and provide full responsiveness when you apply the brakes.

If sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
