The car is equipped with driving assist systems to help provide protection and increased performance.

  1. Antilock Brake System or ABS – this system helps prevent the wheels from locking up when you press on the brakes or when you drive on a slippery or wet surface and apply the brakes.

  2. Brake assist – this system kicks in when you press down on the brake pedal with a need to stop quickly. It provides more braking force.

  3. Vehicle stability control or VSC – this system helps to reduce skidding when the driver swerves or turns on a wet or slippery surface.

  4. Traction control or TRAC – Assists with maintaining power while preventing the wheels from spinning when starting or accelerating on slippery surfaces.

  5. Electric power steering or EPS – an electric motor is used to reduce the effort needed to make turns

  6. Blind spot monitor or BSM – you can view a small mirror to see in your blind spot before switching lanes and reduce the chance of an accident.
