Door Sill Protectors

E-Latch

An e-latch system replaces the conventional door latch/unlatch mechanism with an electronic control that opens and closes door s smoothly with no wasted movements, like a sliding shoji paper door. To open a door when getting in, simply press the switch on the inside of the door handle while pulling the handle towards you in the usual way. When getting out, the door opens in a single action b y pressing a switch while holding the pull handle.

SEA (Safe Exit Assist)

SEA uses the BSM (Blind Spot Monitor System) to detect vehicles (including bicycles) approaching from the rear when exiting the vehicle. If SEA determines a collision with an opened door or exiting occupants is a possibility, an indicator in the door mirror lights up to alert occupants. In addition, if an occupant tries to open a door, the e-latch system cancels door unlatch operation. Occupants are alerted by flashing indicators in the door mirror, the multi-information display, and a buzzer.

Emergency Steering Assist

If the Emergency Steering Assist system detects a collision with a vehicle, motorcycle, pedestrian or bicyclist ahead is likely, there is sufficient space for the vehicle to be steered within its lane and the driver has begun an evasive steering maneuver, it assists steering to help enhance vehicle stability and prevent lane departure. In addition, even if the driver doesn’t move the steering wheel, an optional active steering function supports collision avoidance by steering the vehicle within its lane while gently braking.

Electronically Controlled Full-time AWD

Electronically controlled full-time AWD has been adopted in turbo models to optimize the front/rear drive torque distribution in keeping with the driving conditions, allowing the driver to confidently control the vehicle as intended. The system provides exhilarating yet refined control from normal to aggressive driving, allowing control using the accelerator for smooth vehicle behavior from corner entry to exit, enabling turns faithful to steering operation, and providing strong transmission of traction on various road surfaces. In addition, the AWD system’s front/rear torque distribution is shown in the center display, contributing to intuitive understanding of operating status and peace of mind.

Safety

SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) Airbag System

The front seats are equipped with SRS airbags that deploy in response to impact force from the front of the vehicle. An SRS knee airbag for the driver’s seat cushions impact force and disperses it throughout the body by arresting movement of the lower limbs. SRS side airbags and SRS curtain shield airbags protect occupants in a side collision.
