  • Graphic illustrates the first paragraph of text. Red car automatically corrects itself back into the lane as it wanders out.

Lane keeping assistance helps you correct the course of your vehicle. The system uses a forward-looking camera iso symbol for lame keeping assistancethat detects lane markings in front of the vehicle. It applies a brief corrective action (steering or braking) or it can provide additional steering force and make a warning sound if your vehicle starts to drift outside the lane without using a turn signal.
