The all-new Sorento '4' features a large twin-section sliding panoramic sunroof which fills the cabin with light for maximum appeal and brightness. One-touch motor driven roll blinds with a sliding safety function block the sun to provide shade whenever required.
Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA)
Advanced detection of vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians ahead. Evaluating both camera and radar data from your vehicle, the Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA)8 system analyses information about other cars, pedestrians or cyclists crossing the road, to avoid a potential collision. FCA also functions to prevent collisions with vehicles when making a right turn at an junction. If it estimates a potential collision, a warning signal appears on your instrument cluster and maximum braking power is applied.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC) with Stop & Go
Effortless cruising by maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle directly ahead. SCC maintains the speed specified by you, the driver, and computes the relative position and speed of the vehicle directly ahead using its front view camera and front radar to ensure a safe distance between the two vehicles. The system controls acceleration and deceleration to make sure your Sorento stops when the other vehicle ahead stops. When the vehicle ahead starts moving again, your Sorento will automatically start moving as well.
Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM)
Shows vehicles concealed from driver’s view during lane changes. Designed to improve visibility for blind spots, BVM uses side cameras so that when you indicate left or indicate right, your instrument cluster shows the view of the road in your blind spot. Indicate left and it will show you the rear view down your left-hand side; indicate right and it shows the right-side view. Available on grade '4' only.
Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA)
Easily adjust your speed according to the speed limit. When you choose to use ISLA, the system uses a camera to read speed limit signs along the road, and displays them beside the speedometer and on the navigation screen. You can then decide to set your speed to the road speed limit or override it.
