If that happens, the system tightens up the seatbelts, increases brake sensitivity and applies maximum braking force.
A rearview camera and rain-sensing wipers are standard. I'm really digging meeting people. Both cars have high-level reliability ratings, deliver comfortable rides, and are fit for off-roading.
