The available Lane Change Assist (LCA) goes further, by warning you of vehicles that the system detects coming from behind.

RCCW

As you back up, radar sensors in the rear bumper scan for passing cars and motorcycles. If the available Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) system detects objects in your path, a warning sound and light appears on the left or right outside mirror.

LDW

Standard Lane Departure Warning (LDW) can monitor your position and give an audible alert if your Forte drifts outside of detected lane markers. The available Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) may intervene by applying corrective steering if it senses you drifting to another lane.
