    PRE-SAFE system: This one here uses the time prior to an impending collision or accident. The PRE-SAFE Sound makes a noise that triggers a natural protective reflex that protects the inner ear by damping the collision noise.

    Blind Spot Assist: As soon as the turn indicator is activated the Blind Spot Assist comes into action. The system offers both visual and audio warnings in case it detects a side collision with vehicles in the blind spot. The system event remains alert after the trip, it will warn if the door is open at the wrong time.

    Lane Tracking Package: This one combines the benefits of two assistance systems - Blind Spot Assist and Active Keeping Assist. While the former keeps a track of the parallel traffic and the latter keeps a watchful eye on any unintentional lane change. Let us discuss the two assists in detail. The Blind Spot Assist includes a collision warning function while driving and an exit warning function after the journey. The Active Lane Keeping Assist, on the other hand, comes with a course-correcting function, warning function (via steering vibration), and Warning & operational readiness (from Standard to Sensitive).

    Multibeam LED: The adaptive Multibeam LED headlights come with individually controlled LEDs to react to the given traffic scenario. The partial main beam does not dazzle other users on the road. Adding up to the lighting efficiency is ULTRA RANGE High Beam, cornering light, and active light function.
