Low Speed Braking Control

Continued

Driving

Low Speed Braking Control

The Low Speed Braking Control system has three functions: Low Speed Brake, 
Collision Mitigation Throttle Control, and Rear Collision Mitigation Throttle Control.
Using sonar sensors located on the front and rear bumpers, the vehicle detects if 
there danger of collision with a wall or other obstacle when the accelerator is 
depressed with too much force, and the system assists in avoiding collisions and 
reducing damage from impact by limiting power system output.

1

Low Speed Braking Control

When trapped in a railway crossing, the system may 
detect the crossing gate as an obstacle and activate. 
If this happens, Low Speed Brake will automatically 
cancel after a certain amount of time after stopping, 
so continue to move forward. If Collision Mitigation 
Throttle Control is activated, continue to calmly 
depress the accelerator or depress the accelerator 
once again, then push aside the crossing gate.

If the system is activated by curbs/parking curbs or 
level differences on the road and you are unable to 
park or clear them, turn the system off.

3

WARNING

It is not possible for the Low Speed Braking 
Control system to avoid collisions or reduce 
damage from collisions in all situations 
where the accelerator has been depressed 
accidentally or with too much force.
Over reliance on this system may result in a 
collision and serious injury or death.
It is your responsibility to always check your 
shift position, pedal location and 
surroundings, and safely operate the 
vehicle.

Low Speed Brake function

The Low Speed Brake function provides a visual and audible alert when the vehicle 
is moving between approximately 2 and 10 km/h (1 and 6 mph) and there is the 
possibility of a collision with a wall or other obstacle, as well as providing assistance 
with braking.

How the System Works

For directions on the proper handling of the sonar 
sensors, please refer to the following page.

 P. 497

In order to prevent the system from activating when 
not needed, always turn it off during vehicle 
maintenance, when loading on ships, trucks, and so 
on, or when using a chassis dynamometer or free 
rollers for inspection.

Do not make any modifications to the suspension. 
The system may not operate correctly.

Always use the size and type of tyres recommended, 
make, and amount of wear. If these differ, the system 
may not operate correctly.

Collision Mitigation Throttle Control and Rear Collision Mitigation Throttle 
Control

When the vehicle is stopped or moving at less than 10 km/h (6 mph) and there is an 
obstacle such as a wall near the front of or back of the vehicle, if the accelerator is 
depressed more than necessary, the system will inform you with a visual and audible 
alert. At the same time, the system will prevent sudden forward or backwards 
movement by limiting the output of the power system, then Low Speed Brake will 
activate.

Collision Mitigation Throttle Control and Rear Collision Mitigation Throttle Control 
will not activate in the following situations.

Throttle Control.

When the accelerator is no longer depressed.

When the accelerator is depressed for approximately four seconds.

When the brake pedal is depressed.

When the steering wheel is turned and a collision avoided.

Conditions for Low Speed Brake function cancellation.

A certain amount of time has passed since activation.

The system may not operate correctly in the following conditions:

Examples of obstacles the sonar sensor cannot detect

Obstacles that do not reflect sound waves well, such as people, snow, cloth, 
sponges, etc.

Thin obstacles such as fences, bicycles, sign posts, etc.

Short or small obstacles.

Obstacles immediately in front of the bumper.

Moving objects or obstacles that suddenly enter the road.

Obstacles that are not perpendicular to the ground, such as a wall.

Conditions for Cancellation

Low Speed Braking Control System Conditions and Limitations

Conditions for Cancellation

After Low Speed Brake and Collision Mitigation 
Throttle Control have activated once, they will not 
activate again for the same obstacle.
They can be activated again after driving for some 
time after the last activation.

Low Speed Brake and (Rear) Collision Mitigation 
Throttle Control activate separately when moving 
forward and reversing. (For example, if it activates 
when moving forward, it can be activated again 
immediately if reversing.)
However, if Low Speed Brake has been activated, in 
order to activate Collision Mitigation Throttle Control 
again, it is necessary to drive for a certain amount of 
time.

Driving

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Helps to maintain a constant vehicle speed and a set following-interval behind a 
vehicle detected ahead of yours and, if the detected vehicle comes to a stop, can 
decelerate and stop your vehicle, without you having to keep your foot on the brake 
or the accelerator.
When ACC with Low Speed Follow slows your vehicle by applying the brakes, your 
vehicle’s brake lights will illuminate.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Important Reminder

As with any system, there are limits to ACC with Low 
Speed Follow. Use the brake pedal whenever 
necessary, and always keep a safe interval between 
your vehicle and other vehicles.

For directions on the proper handling of the radar 
sensor, refer to the following page.

WARNING

Improper use of ACC with Low Speed 
Follow can lead to a crash.

Use ACC with Low Speed Follow only when 
driving on motorways and in good weather 
conditions.

3

WARNING

ACC with Low Speed Follow has limited 
braking capability and may not stop your 
vehicle in time to avoid a collision with a 
vehicle that quickly stops in front of you.

Always be prepared to apply the brake 
pedal if the conditions require.

a

The camera is located behind the rearview mirror.

b

Do not use ACC with Low Speed Follow under the 
following conditions:

On roads with heavy traffic or while driving in 
continuous stop and go traffic.

On roads with steep downhill sections, as the set 
vehicle speed can be exceeded by coasting. In such 
cases, ACC with Low Speed Follow will not apply 
the brakes to maintain the set speed.

On roads with toll collection facilities or other 
objects between lanes of traffic, or in parking 
areas, or facilities with drive through access.
