Driver Assistance Systems

Consumers who opt for the 3.6L VR6 4Motion Executive model benefit from the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) and Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist). ACC uses forward facing radar to maintain a set speed while helping maintain a set distance to the vehicle in front. The driver sets the speed and the desired spacing via buttons on the multifunction steering wheel and can use the accelerator, brake pedal or steering wheel to cancel or override the ACC function.

With the Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking system, the driver is warned in critical front-end collision situations, both acoustically and visually by a warning symbol in the instrument cluster, and, if necessary, Autonomous Emergency Braking is activated to slow the vehicle if the driver fails to brake. Lane Departure Warning actively helps countersteer to keep the vehicle in the lane above 40 mph, if there is an indication that the vehicle is unintentionally straying from its lane.
