In the SPORT, SPORT PLUS or RACE drive programs, all the driver has to do is press the brake pedal forcefully with their left foot and simultaneously fully depress the accelerator pedal with their right foot. Also, the steering wheel of the car is a speed-sensitive steering. The system is so cool, you would want to take it to a racetrack immediately.
In terms of safety, it gets an active brake assist, proximity warning,
collision warning, situation-dependent braking assistance and autonomous braking
function. Other safety features include 7 airbags, Multibeam Intelligent Light System
with cornering function and Adaptive High Beam with automatic switching between high and low beam. It gives you a racer feel with proper safety measures. It should be fun to drive.
