Lane Following Assist

Lane Following Assist

If the vehicle ahead and/or both lane markings are detected and your vehicle speed is below 110 mph (180 km/h), Lane Following Assist will help center the vehicle in the lane by assisting the steering wheel. The green ( ) indicator light will appear on the cluster.

CAUTION

When the steering wheel is not assisted, the white () indicator light will blink and change to grey.

Hands-off warning

Hands-off warning

A: Keep hands on steering wheel

If the driver takes their hands off the steering wheel for several seconds, the warning message will appear and an audible warning will sound in stages.

  • First stage: Warning message
  • Second stage: Warning message (red steering wheel) and audible warning

Hands-off warning

A: Lane Following Assist deactivated

If the driver still does not have their hands on the steering wheel after the hands-off warning, the warning message will appear and Lane Following Assist will be automatically canceled.

WARNING

  • The steering wheel may not be assisted if the steering wheel is held very tight or the steering wheel is steered over a certain degree.
  • Lane Following Assist does not operate at all times. It is the responsibility of the driver to safely steer the vehicle and to maintain the vehicle in its lane.
  • The hands-off warning message may appear late depending on road conditions.

    Always have your hands on the steering wheel while driving.

  • If the steering wheel is held very lightly the hands-off warning message may appear because Lane Following Assist may not detect that the driver has their hands on the steering wheel.
  • If you attach objects to the steering wheel, the hands-off warning may not work properly.

NOTICE

  • For more details on setting Lane Following Assist in the infotainment system, refer to Navigation Quick Reference Guide.
  • When both lane markings are detected, the lane lines on the cluster will change f r om grey to white.

  • Even though the steering is assisted by Lane Following Assist, the driver may control the steering wheel.
  • The steering wheel may feel heavier or lighter when the steering wheel is assisted by Lane Following Assist than when it is not.
