(Option/accessory.)

Cross Traffic Alert(CTA) is a supplementary driver support system to BLIS1 that is intended to help the driver detect vehicles crossing behind the vehicle while backing up.

The auto-brake subfunction can help the driver stop the car if there is a risk of collision with an unobserved vehicle.

Examples of areas in which Cross Traffic Alert can help the driver detect obstacles while backing up.

The function is primarily designed to detect vehicles, but in certain cases can also detect pedestrians or smaller objects such as bicycles.

The function is only active when the vehicle is moving backward or reverse gear is engaged.

If the function detects that something is approaching your vehicle from the side:

  • an audible signal will sound from either the left or right speaker, depending on which side of your vehicle the object is approaching from.
  • an icon will illuminate in the Park Assist System graphic on the screen.
  • an icon will appear in the Park Assist Camera's Top view.

If the driver does not pay attention to the warning from the function and a collision is unavoidable, the auto brake function will intervene to stop the vehicle and a text will be shown on the instrument panel to explain why the vehicle was braked.
