Safety Features on our Cars

We take safety seriously, equipping our cars with the latest active safety technology to prevent accidents, while also building our cars to be as protective as possible if a collision does happen. Discover some of the key safety innovations available on our cars.

Constructed for safety

Built to be better

Our cars are constructed to meet the strictest safety standards and across our range, you'll find exceptional build quality and dedication to creating safer cars.

Active Stability and Traction Control

Safer in all weather conditions

Sensors throughout the car respond to any unstable movement by automatically controlling brakes and engine to stabilise the car.  If the sensors detect wheel slip when starting on slick surfaces, such as a snow-covered road, the Traction Control function automatically brakes the slipping wheel and governs engine output to enable a smoother start.

RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body

Designed to protect you

Our cars are built using our advanced Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body. It strategically places reinforcements at critical points to help route and absorb energy in the event of a high impact collision. So you and your passengers are kept safe when you need it most.

ABS with EBD

Quicker, safer stopping

Active braking enables manoeuvring around obstacles even in emergency situations. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) applies additional force to the rear brakes, producing quicker stopping times, even when carrying passengers and heavy loads.

Avoiding Accidents

Giving you extra eyes and ears

These features are there to provide you with vital information right when you need it, enhancing your ability to react to hazards and in some cases even reacting for you. 

Forward Collision Mitigation system (FCM)

Safer in the event of a collision

With a combination of cameras and laser radar, the FCM System will judge your distance and speed in comparison to the vehicle ahead. If the system detects a danger of collision, it sounds a warning and automatically slows your vehicle down.

Awareness of other drivers

No more blind spots

Radar detects whether there are vehicles in your hard to see blind spots. If you're about to change lanes and the system detects that something is there, a light will blink in the door mirror on the side nearest to the hazard and a buzzer will sound.

Lane Departure Warning

If you drift, the car will tell you

An smart camera checks for road markings in realtime, beeps and displays a warning on the dash to let you know if your vehicle has drifted from its lane and you're not using your indicators. 

 

Automatic High Beam

The car switches the beam for you

To make driving at night easier, the high beam automatically switches to low beam whenever oncoming vehicles are detected. Once the oncoming vehicle has passed, it switches back. You'll never need to take your hands off the steering wheel to switch them manually again.

Easier Manoeuvring

Park like a boss

These features make things like hill starts and tight spaces easier by enhancing your awareness of your surroundings with advanced camera and sensor technology.

360 degree view

A bird's eye view of every space

Cameras position around the car create a seamless image that's gives you a topdown view as you reverse. You'll wonder how you ever coped without it.

Hill start assist

No more rolling backward

If you're starting on a steep slope, Hill Start Assist makes it really easy by keeping the brake on for up to two seconds, until you press the accelerator. So you never need to worry about rolling back again.
