Assistive driving power suppression

When the vehicle is stopped or moving at less than 6 mph (10 km/h) and there is an 
obstacle such as a wall detected near the front of or back of the vehicle, if the 
accelerator pedal 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 engine, then assistive braking 
will activate when you get closer to the obstacle.

Assistive driving power suppression will not activate in the following situations.
When moving forward:
When on a steep slope or the shift position is in

When reversing:
When on a steep slope or the shift position is in a position other than

If the only rear sensors are turned off using the parking sensor system, the assistive 
driving power suppression will not work when reversing.

Using sonar sensors located on the front and rear bumpers, and the front grille, this 
system can detect if there is danger of a potential collision with a wall or other 
obstacle during normal driving. The system then assists in avoiding collisions and 
reducing damage from impact through assistive braking.

If the Low Speed Braking Control activates in a 
situation where you do not want automatic brake 
application (such as when the vehicle is between two 
railroad crossing gates), simply press the brake pedal 
to deactivate the system and then continue to drive 
as intended.

WARNING

The Low Speed Braking Control System 
cannot avoid all collisions and may not 
reduce damage in each situation where the 
accelerator is mistakenly or aggressively 
pressed. Overreliance on the system may 
result in a collision with serious injury or 
death. Always check your surroundings, 
your shift position, and your pedal use. 
Driver remains responsible for safely

Road Departure Mitigation System

Important Safety Reminder

Like all assistance systems, the Road Departure 
Mitigation system has limitations.
Overreliance on the Road Departure Mitigation 
system may result in a collision. It is always your 
responsibility to keep the vehicle within your driving 
lane.

The Road Departure Mitigation system alerts you 
when the system detects that you are approaching 
the outer edge of the pavement (into grass or gravel 
border), an oncoming vehicle, or drifting into another 
lane without using a turn signal.
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not detect 
all lane markings or every instance of lane drift.
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not 
detect that you are approaching the outer edge of 
the pavement (bordered by grass or gravel) or an 
oncoming vehicle.
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not be 
able to assist you depending on weather, speed or 
road conditions.

The Road Departure Mitigation system is not activated 
for about 15 seconds after the engine starts.

Driving

When driving at about 25 mph (40 km/h) or above: 

Take your foot off the 

pedal and press the 

RES/+

/

SET/−

 switch up or down when you reach the desired 

speed. The moment you release the switch, the set speed is fixed, and ACC with Low 
Speed Follow begins.

When you use ACC with Low Speed Follow, Straight Driving Assist (a feature of the 
Electric Power Steering system) is activated.
By enabling the steering system to automatically compensate for natural steering pull, 
Straight Driving Assist makes it easier for you to keep your vehicle in a straight line.

When driving slower than about 25 mph (40 km/h): 

If the vehicle is moving 

and the brake pedal is not depressed, pressing the switch fixes the set speed to 
about 25 mph (40 km/h) regardless of current vehicle speed. If your vehicle is 
stationary, you can set the vehicle speed even with the brake pedal depressed.

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

On roads with frequent lane-change or continuous 
stop and go traffic. ACC with Low Speed Follow 
cannot keep an appropriate distance between your 
vehicle and vehicle ahead of you.

On roads with sharp turns.

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

On roads with bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.), 
ACC with Low Speed Follow may not detect the 
distance between your vehicle and the vehicle 
ahead of you properly.

On roads with slippery or icy surfaces. The wheels 
may spin out and your vehicle may lose the control 
on the condition.

On roads with steep uphill or steep downhill slopes.

On roads with undulating slopes.

There is a vehicle ahead

ACC with Low Speed Follow monitors if a vehicle ahead of you enters the ACC with 
Low Speed Follow range. If a vehicle is detected doing so, the ACC with Low Speed 
Follow system maintains or decelerates your vehicle’s set speed in order to keep the 
vehicle’s set following-interval from the vehicle ahead.

Follow may start accelerating your vehicle under the 
following circumstances:

The vehicle ahead of you is going at almost the 
same speed as, or faster than, your vehicle.

A vehicle that cuts in front of you is going faster 
than your vehicle, gradually increasing the interval 
between the vehicles.

You can also set the system to beep when a vehicle in 
front of you comes in and goes out of the ACC with

Driving

There is no vehicle ahead

Your vehicle maintains the set speed without 
having to keep your foot on the brake or 
accelerator pedal.
If there previously was a vehicle detected 
ahead that kept your vehicle from traveling at 
the set speed, ACC with Low Speed Follow 
accelerates your vehicle to the set speed, and 
then maintains it.

While driving down steep hills, ACC with Low 
Speed Follow brakes to inhibit excessive 
acceleration for maintaining the set speed.
However, the vehicle speed may become 
faster than the set speed.

When you depress the accelerator pedal

You can temporarily increase the vehicle speed. In this case, there is no audible or 
visual alert even if a vehicle is in the ACC with Low Speed Follow range.
ACC with Low Speed Follow stays on unless you cancel it. Once you release the 
accelerator pedal, the system resumes the set speed.
There are times when the vehicle speed will decrease when the accelerator pedal is 
lightly applied.

When in Operation

ACC with Low Speed Follow may temporarily 
control the interval between your vehicle and the 
vehicle in adjacent lane or surroundings of your 
vehicle depending on the road conditions (e.g., 
curves) or vehicle conditions (e.g., operating the 
steering wheel or the vehicle location in the lane).

When the vehicle ahead of you moves away, such 
as when entering an interchange or rest area, ACC 
with Low Speed Follow may continue to maintain 
the set following-interval for a short time.

A vehicle icon with line contour 
appears on the gauge.
