City Safety™ monitors traffic ahead of you using a laser sensor mounted in the upper section of the windshield. If a collision is imminent, City Safety™ will automatically apply the brakes, which may feel like hard braking.

If the difference in speed between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead is more than approximately 9 mph (15 km/h), City Safety™ alone cannot prevent a collision from taking place.

The driver must apply the brakes to help avoid a collision or reduce its effect.

When the function activates and applies the brakes, a message will appear in the information display to indicate that the system is/has been active.

NOTE
• When City Safety™ applies the brakes, the brake lights will illuminate.
• In cases where City Safety™ has stopped the vehicle, the system will then release the brakes. The driver must apply the brakes to keep the vehicle at a standstill.
