Want to know how much room you have left when you back into a parking spot? As you reverse, audible beeps alert you to the distance
to obstacles behind you. (Optional on EX)

Assist Control (HAC)

We know what it's like when you have to pull away from a standing

HAC stops you from rolling backwards.

Stop Signal (ESS)

ESS detects emergency brake application and
immediately activates the brake lights, flashing them
to warn other drivers.


Pretensioners on the front seatbelts limit the body’s movement,
while load limiters reduce the pressure against your body
to protect you from the seatbelt itself.

Lowe stiffeners
for pedestrian safety

The frontal structures are specially designed to reduce potential leg and head injuries to pedestrians. A bumper lower stiffener is an important modification that can help protect the lower legs of pedestrians.
