  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): Detects when a potential frontal collision is imminent and automatically applies the brakes.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Adjusts the steering to keep the vehicle in its lane should it drift past the lane markings without the turn signal activated.
