Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)
Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)BCA uses rear corner radar sensors to monitor your blind spots, and alerts you if it detects a vehicle encroaching into those areas. Going beyond earlier BCW systems, when a vehicle approaches the blind spot while the Cadenza is veering into the approaching car’s lane, BCA actively applies brake pressure to the outside front wheel to help keep the Cadenza in its lane.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)This system monitors the areas to the right and left when the vehicle reverses out of a parking space and alerts the driver of any approaching traffic on either side using the rear corner radar. It takes over braking when needed to prevent potential accidents. It takes over braking when needed to prevent potential accidents.
High Beam Assist (HBA)
High Beam Assist (HBA)Make nocturnal driving even less stressful with High Beam Assist. The system recognizes oncoming vehicles at night, switching headlights between high and low beam automatically.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)SCC uses a radar sensor at the front of the vehicle to monitor the distance between your Cadenza and the vehicle ahead. To maintain a predetermined safe distance, it will apply the brakes, and even stop the car, until the vehicle ahead proceeds.
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)When the vehicle strays from its lane, the system sets off a visual and sound alarm and automatically steers the vehicle to prevent it from moving out of its lane.

cues, to help you maneuver safely in almost any driving and parking situation.

Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM)

Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM)Using the around-view cameras to monitor the
sides and rear of the vehicle, the BVM employs
visual alerts when it detects vehicles in the blind spot
for easier and safer lane changes. When the turn
signal is engaged, BVM shows a live feed of your
blind spots of the indicated lane on the instrument
gauge cluster display.

Safe Exit Assist (SEA)

Safe Exit Assist (SEA)Using a pair of rear corner radar, SEA detects
cars approaching from the rear and cautions
passengers who may intend to exit the vehicle.
