WARNING

  • The detecting range of the front corner radar or rear corner radar is determined by a standard road width, therefore, on a narrow road, Blind- Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist may detect other vehicles two lanes over and warn you. In contrast, on a wide road, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist may not be able to detect a vehicle driving in the next lane and may not warn you.
  • When the hazard warning flasher is on, the collision warning by the turn signal will not operate.

NOTICE

  • If the driver's seat is on the left side, the collision warning may occur when you turn left. If the driver's seat is on the right side, the collision warning may occur when you turn right.

    Maintain a proper distance with the vehicles in the lane.

  • Images or colors may be displayed differently depends on the instrument cluster specifications or theme.
