Say hello to technology that can look out for you. Whether you’re changing lanes, backing up, or trying to avoid traffic, the 2019 Forte gives you so many clever ways to stay one step ahead, all right at your fingertips.
Standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance (FCA) works independently of drivers and can apply the brakes in certain situations to help prevent frontal collisions. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is designed to sense certain road hazards ahead and then give audible and visual alerts.
Distance is good sometimes. Now maintaining a predetermined distance between you and the vehicle ahead is easier, thanks to available Smart Cruise Control (SCC), an innovative system that is designed to use radar to detect vehicles in front of you under certain conditions and slow down or accelerate your Forte as needed.
Standard for Forte EX, Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW) system can help increase your awareness, alerting you with an indicator light on the outside mirrors if it detects vehicles in your Forte’s blind spot. The available Lane Change Assist (LCA) goes further, by warning you of vehicles that the system detects coming from behind.
As you back up, radar sensors in the rear bumper scan for passing cars and motorcycles. If the available Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) system detects objects in your path, a warning sound and light appears on the left or right outside mirror.
Standard Lane Departure Warning (LDW) can monitor your position and give an audible alert if your Forte drifts outside of detected lane markers. The available Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) may intervene by applying corrective steering if it senses you drifting to another lane.
Tight space? No problem. The available Parking Distance Warning-Reverse (PDW-R) uses a sonar sensor system to detect obstacles you might have missed behind your Forte. If one is detected, the system provides an audible warning.
