  • Brake control will end after the vehicle is stopped by emergency braking for approximately 2 seconds.
  • During emergency braking, braking control by the function will automatically cancel when the driver excessively depresses the brake pedal.

WARNING

Take the following precautions when using Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist:

  • For your safety, set the Settings after parking the vehicle at a safe location.
  • If any other function's warning message is displayed or audible warning is generated, Rear Cross-Traffic Safety function's warning message may not be displayed and audible warning may not be generated.
  • You may not hear the warning sound of Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist if the surroundings are noisy.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist may not operate if the driver applies the brake pedal to avoid collision.
  • During Rear Cross-Traffic Safety Function Operation, the vehicle may stop suddenly injuring passengers and shifting loose objects. Always have the seat belt on and keep loose objects secured.
  • Even if there is a problem with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, the vehicle's basic braking performance will operate normally.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist does not operate in all situations or cannot avoid all collisions.
  • When Rear Cross-Traffic Collision- Avoidance Assist is operating, braking control by the function will automatically cancel when the driver excessively depresses the accelerator pedal.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist may warn the driver late or may not warn the driver depending on the road and driving conditions.
  • The driver should hold the responsibility to control the vehicle. Do not solely depend on Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist. Rather, maintain a safe braking distance, and if necessary, depress the brake pedal to reduce driving speed or to stop the vehicle.
  • Never deliberately operate Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist on people, animal, objects, etc.

    It may cause serious injury or death.

CAUTION

The brake control may not operate properly depending on the status of ESC (Electronic Stability Control).

There will only be a warning when:

  • The ESC (Electronic Stability Control) warning light is on
  • ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is engaged in a different function

NOTICE

If braking is assisted by Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, the driver must immediately depress the brake pedal and check vehicle surroundings.

  • Brake control will end when the driver depresses the brake pedal with sufficient power.
  • After shifting the gear to R (Reverse), braking control will operate once for left and right vehicle approach.
