Peace of mind.

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)*

    If the unexpected does happen, your Picanto will look out for you. Using radar and camera data, your vehicle will sense the potential for a collision and initiate Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) to avoid or reduce the effects of a collision.

  • Rear view camera with dynamic parking guidelines*

    Make parking a breeze with the rear view camera integrated with dynamic parking guidelines, standard across the range, ensuring you can conquer any tricky parking spots.

    When at a standstill on an incline, HAC prevents you from rolling backwards. It gently applies the brakes when you lift your foot from the brake pedal, giving you time to switch your foot to the accelerator.

    Electronic Stability Control & Traction Control System aids optimal braking performance and directional control by delivering the right amount of braking force to each wheel, based on evaluation of engine torque and driving conditions.

  • Cruise control with speed limiter*
