The LC features dual-stage SRS airbags (Front seats), SRS knee airbags (Front seats), SRS side airbags (Front seats) and SRS curtain shield airbags (Front and rear seats).
The innovative PUH helps to provide pedestrian protection in the event of a frontal collision, and at the same time enables a sporty design with a low hood line. When sensors mounted in the front bumper determine that the vehicle has collided with a pedestrian, the hood instantly pops up on four fulcrum points to create a space to help absorb the impact force.
To assist safe reversing, RCTA uses quasi-millimeter-wave radars in the rear bumper to detect approaching vehicles in difficult-to-see areas behind the vehicle. When an approaching vehicle is detected, RCTA alerts the driver using a buzzer and an LED indicator in the relevant door mirror.
When the quasi-millimeter-wave radars in the rear bumper detect vehicles in adjacent lanes that aren’t visible in the door mirrors, the system activates an LED warning indicator in the relevant door mirror the moment a vehicle enters this blind spot.
In addition to maintaining a constant speed, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses the radar and camera sensors to detect a vehicle driving ahead and maintain an appropriate distance between vehicles at all speeds.
LKA(Lane Keeping Assist) alerts the driver with a buzzer and on the multi-information display if the system judges the vehicle is about to cross the lane markings without using the turn signals, and assists steering to help avoid lane departure. AHB (Automatic High Beam System)helps safe driving at night by instantly switching from high to low beam when the lights of an oncoming vehicle, or the tail lights of a vehicle in front, are detected.
When the radar and camera sensors detect a collision with a vehicle ahead is likely, it alerts the driver and activates pre-crash brake assist when the driver depresses the brake pedal. If it determines a collision is difficult to avoid, then the pre-crash brakes and pre-crash seatbelts also operate.
When the millimetre-wave radar and monocular camera detect a collision with a vehicle ahead is likely, it alerts the driver using a buzzer and on the multi-information display, and activates pre-crash brake assist when the driver depresses the brake pedal. If the driver cannot depress the brake pedal, then it activates the pre-crash brakes to help avoid a collision or mitigate the impact force.
In addition to maintaining a constant speed, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses the millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera to detect a vehicle driving ahead and maintain an appropriate distance between vehicles at speeds over 40km/h.
