Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) System

Driving

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) System

VSA helps to stabilise the vehicle during cornering if the vehicle turns more or less 
than what was intended. It also assists in maintaining traction on slippery surfaces. 
It does so by regulating motor output and selectively applying the brakes.

When VSA activates, you may notice that the 
motor does not respond to the accelerator. 
You may also notice some noise from the 
hydraulic system. You will also see the 
indicator blink.

VSA Operation

1

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) System

The VSA may not function properly if tyre type and 
size are mixed. Make sure to use the same size and 
type of tyre, and the air pressures as specified.

When the VSA system indicator comes on and stays 
on while driving, there may be a problem with the 
system. While this may not interfere with normal 
driving, have your vehicle checked by a dealer 
immediately.

VSA cannot enhance stability in all driving situations 
and does not control the entire braking system. You 
still need to drive and corner at speeds appropriate 
for the conditions and always leave a sufficient 
margin of safety.

The main function of the VSA system is generally 
known as Electronic Stability Control (ESC). The 
system also includes a traction control function.

VSA is turned on every time you turn the 
power system on, even if you turned it off the 
last time you drove the vehicle.

VSA On and Off

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) System

In certain unusual conditions when your vehicle gets 
stuck in shallow mud or fresh snow, it may be easier 
to free it with the VSA temporarily switched off.

When the VSA system is off, the traction control 
function becomes less effective. This allows for the 
wheels to spin more freely at low speed. You should 
only attempt to free your vehicle with the VSA off if 
you are not able to free it when the VSA is on.

Immediately after freeing your vehicle, be sure to 
switch VSA on again. We do not recommend driving 
your vehicle with the VSA system switched off.

You may hear a motor sound coming from under the 
bonnet while system checks are being performed 
immediately after turn the power system on or while 
driving. This is normal.

Deflation Warning System

Driving

Deflation Warning System

Instead of directly measuring the pressure in each tyre, the deflation warning system 
on this vehicle monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational 
characteristics of each wheel and tyre while you are driving to determine if one or 
more tyres are significantly under-inflated.

This will cause the low tyre pressure/deflation 
warning system indicator to come on and a 
message to appear on the driver information 
interface.

1

Deflation Warning System

The system does not monitor the tyres when driving 
at low speed.

Conditions such as low ambient temperature and 
altitude change directly affect tyre pressure and can 
trigger the low tyre pressure/deflation warning 
system indicator to come on.

Tyre pressure checked and inflated in:

Warm weather can become under-inflated in 
colder weather.

Cold weather can become over-inflated in warmer 
weather.

The Low Tyre Pressure/Deflation Warning System 
indicator will not come on as a result of over inflation.

The deflation warning system may not function 
properly if tyre type and size are mixed. 
Make sure to use the same size and type of tyre.

2

Checking and Maintaining Tyres

 P. 609

The low tyre pressure/deflation warning system 
indicator may come on with a delay or may not come 
on at all when:

You rapidly accelerate, decelerate, or turn the 
steering wheel.

You drive on snowy or slippery roads.

Tyre chains are used.

Deflation Warning System Calibration

1

Deflation Warning System

The low tyre pressure/deflation warning system 
indicator may come on under the following 
conditions:

Tyre chains are used.

1

Deflation Warning System Calibration

The calibration process requires approximately 
30 minutes of cumulative driving at speeds between 
40-100 km/h (25 - 62 mph).
During this period, if the power system is turned on 
and the vehicle is not moved within 45 seconds, you 
may notice the low tyre pressure indicator comes on 
briefly. This is normal and indicates that the 
calibration process is not yet complete.

If the tyre chains are installed, remove them before 
calibration the deflation warning system.

If the low tyre pressure/deflation warning system 
indicator comes on even when the properly inflated 
specified regular tyres are installed, have your vehicle 
checked by a dealer.

We recommend that the tyres be replaced with the 
same brand, model, and size as the originals. Ask a 
dealer for details.

Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)

Can assist you when there is a possibility of your vehicle colliding with a vehicle, 
pedestrian on foot or riding a bicycle (moving bicycle) detected in front of yours. The 
CMBS is designed to alert you when a potential collision is determined, as well as 
assist in reducing speed, avoiding collisions, and reducing collision severity.

Important Safety Reminder

The CMBS is designed to reduce the severity of an 
unavoidable collision. It does not prevent collision nor 
stop the vehicle automatically. It is still your 
responsibility to operate the brake pedal and steering 
wheel appropriately according to the driving 
conditions.

The CMBS may not activate or may not detect a 
vehicle in front of your vehicle under certain 
conditions:

How the system works

The system starts monitoring the roadway ahead when your vehicle speed is about 
5 km/h (3 mph) and there is a vehicle, pedestrian or moving bicycle in front of you.

1

Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)

When the CMBS activates, it may automatically apply 
the brake. It will be cancelled when your vehicle stops 
or a potential collision is not determined.

u

Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)

432

Driving

The CMBS activates when:

The speed difference between your vehicle and a vehicle, pedestrian or moving 
bicycle detected in front of you becomes about 5 km/h (3 mph) and over with a 
chance of a collision.

Your vehicle speed is about 100 km/h (62mph) or less and the system determines 
there is a chance of a collision with:

-

An oncoming or stationary vehicle detected in front of you.

-

A pedestrian or moving bicycle detected in front of you.

Your vehicle speed is above 100 km/h (62 mph), and the system determines there 
is a chance of a collision with a vehicle detected in front of you travelling in your 
same direction.

The CMBS will be canceled when your vehicle stops or a potential collision is not 
determined.

When the system activates

The system provides visual and audible alerts 
of a possible collision, and stops if the collision 
is avoided.

u

Take appropriate action to prevent a 
collision (apply the brakes, change lanes, 
etc.)

At system’s earliest collision alert stage, you 
can change the distance (
