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.
