Safety

Six standard airbags include side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows. Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, traction control and an electronic stability system are also standard. Two high-tech options Ч a Blind Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Alert Ч aim to warn drivers when a car is in their blind spot, as well as alert them of cross traffic when backing out of a parking spot.
