If you start to drift out of your lane, an audible beeping sound and indicator light on the instrument panel will alert you so that you can take corrective action.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) automatically adjusts vehicle speed to help maintain a preset following distance between you and the vehicle directly in front of you.
