Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA).
Uses radar and camera data to automatically activate the brakes when it detects dangerous and sudden braking by the car ahead or movement of pedestrians on the road.
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA).
A steering assist function that utilises the front mounted camera to detect lane markings and monitor the vehicle’s position in the lane. Should the vehicle move out of the lane without indicating, an audible and visual warning will sound along with steering intervention to keep the vehicle in the centre of the lane.
Driver Attention Warning (DAW).
Designed with the driver’s safety in mind, the Kona Electric monitors lane positioning while also analysing steering corrections and patterns to detect signs of fatigue. A visual alert will display in the virtual cluster to advise the driver to take a break.
Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW).
When driving at a speed of above 30km/h the BCW function will alert the driver to vehicles that enter the blind spot, including lane changes. If the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a flashing visual warning is provided and an audible alert will sound.
High Beam Assist (HBA).
Exclusive to the Highlander variant, High Beam Assist recognises oncoming cars at night and will automatically dim your lights to keep both cars safe.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW).
Reversing out of carparks just became easier. When in reverse, rear sensors are activated to monitor approaching traffic existing parking spots. When a vehicle approaches a blind-spot, an audible warning will sound along with a visual in the dash cluster.
