Driving assist systems

To help enhance driving safety and performance, the following systems operate automatically in response to various driving situations. Be aware, however, that these systems are supplementary and should not be relied upon too heavily when operating the vehicle.

ABS (Anti-lock Brake System)

Helps to prevent wheel lock when the brakes are applied suddenly, or if the brakes are applied while driving on a slippery road surface

Multi Terrain ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) (vehicles with a Multi-terrain Select system)

Helps to prevent wheel lock when the brakes are applied suddenly, or if the brakes are applied while driving on a slippery road surface, or in off- road conditions (such as rough roads, sand and mud)

The Multi Terrain ABS operates in synchronization with the Multi-terrain Select

Brake assist

Generates an increased level of braking force after the brake pedal is depressed when the system detects a panic stop situation

VSC (Vehicle Stability Control)

Helps the driver to control skidding when swerving suddenly or turning on slippery road surfaces

TRAC (Traction Control) for H4 mode

Helps to maintain drive power and prevent the drive wheels from spinning when starting the vehicle or accelerating on slippery roads

Active TRAC (Traction Control) for L4 mode

Helps to maintain drive power and prevent the 4 wheels from spinning when starting the vehicle or accelerating on slippery roads, or in off-road conditions

Hill-start assist control

Helps to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward when starting on an incline or slippery slope

KDSS (Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System)

KDSS helps to enhance ride comfort and handling response by using a hydraulic control system to control the suspension stabilizer bars in response to road surface and driving conditions during cornering or off- road driving

PCS (Pre-Collision System) (if equipped)

The function only works in vehicles with Multi-terrain Select when Multi- terrain Select is switched on
