Keeping You Out Of Harm’s Way

Keeping you out of harm’s way

An innovation to help keep you out of harm’s way is the mis-acceleration prevention system. While manoeuvring forwards or backwards, should the driver accidentally stamp on the gas pedal instead of the brake a device senses if there’s something in the way and instantly disables the throttle. VRX only.



Whichever angle an impact is encountered, there’s an airbag to counter its effects. Driver and passenger-side SRS airbags, side and curtain SRS airbags, and a driver-side SRS knee airbag all come standard and protect occupants throughout the vehicle.
