Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist is designed to help detect and monitor approaching vehicles in the driver’s blind spot area and warn the driver of a possible collision with a warning message and audible warning.

In addition, if there is a risk of collision when changing lanes or driving forward out of a parking space, the system will help avoid a collision by applying the brake.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist helps detect and inform the driver that a vehicle is in the blind spot.

CAUTION

The detecting range may vary depending on the speed of your vehicle. However, even if there is a vehicle in the blind spot area, the system may not warn you when you pass by at high speeds.

Blind-Spot Collision Assist helps detect and informs the driver that a vehicle is approaching at high speed from the blind spot area.

CAUTION

Warning timing may vary depending on the speed of the vehicle approaching at high speed.

When changing lanes by detecting the lane ahead, if the system judges that there is a collision risk with an approaching vehicle in the blind spot, the system will help avoid a collision by applying the brake.

When you are driving forward out of a parking space, if the system judges that there is a collision risk with an approaching vehicle in the blind spot, the system will help avoid a collision by applying the brake.
