Mitsubishi Advanced Safety Features Explained
Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM)
With models equipped with FCM, they will alert of vehicles detected and approaching. If action isn't taken promptly, the system will kick in to apply the brakes to mitigate the impact or eliminate the collision.
Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)
With LDP-equipped models, the system monitors the lane markings, and an audible warning will play if the vehicle veers towards the markings. If the necessary action isn't performed, the system will apply selective braking to bring the vehicle back into its driving lane.
Rear Automatic Emergency Braking (Rear AEB)
The Rear AEB utilizes sonar sensors in the rear bumper to scan for objects or vehicles, and if something is too close, the system will audibly warn the driver and attempt to stop the vehicle to prevent damage.
Active Blind Spot Assist (ABSA)
After the initial audible warning to the driver, the ABSA kicks in to apply the brakes bringing the vehicle away from harm's way.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
With ACC, you can set the desired driving speed, and the vehicle will maintain the specified speed. Also, the system can accelerate and slow down the vehicle to keep up with traffic, making highway driving effortless.
Auto LED High Beams (AHB)
Using the AHB during night driving will improve safety and convenience. This feature will automatically turn on the high beams when needed and turn them off when a vehicle is approaching.
Driver Attention Alert (DAA)
If the driver shows signs of lack of attention or drowsiness, a warning will alert the driver to pay more attention or pull over to rest.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
If your vehicle drifts out of its lane without signalling, the LDW will audibly alert and display a warning onto the multifunction display, indicating that a dangerous situation is happening.
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA)
With RCTA equipped, your vehicle will warn you of vehicles approaching from either side, giving you blinks on the side mirrors, a buzzer alert, and a warning message on the information screen of the multi-information display.
Blind Spot Warning (BSW)
When driving and a vehicle enters the blind spot, the BSW light will light up at the side mirror where the vehicle is approaching from, indicating that a vehicle is present in that blind spot area. If the turn signal is turned on while a vehicle is in the blind spot, it will illuminate the warning light and produce three beeps to indicate that a lane change is unsafe.
Multi-View Camera System (MVCS)
The MVCS is a 360-degree camera that shows what is around your vehicle.
Lane Keep Assist (LKA)
Using the forward-facing camera to detect the driving lane, the LKA will determine the vehicle's position and provide steering assistance to keep the vehicle driving in the centre of the lane.
Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)
Using the TSR feature is an excellent way to avoid speeding through areas where the speed limit changes promptly, as this system will scan signs to keep you up-to-date on the current driving speed.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
The TPMS is a great feature to have, as you will always have a convenient way of checking the pressure of your tires, eliminating the risk of having a flat tire on the side of the road or a tire blowout.
