PRACTICALITY AND SAFETY
The XE accommodates a range of features that help you reach each destination safely.
PRACTICAL CARGO SPACE
With the standard split-folding seats, readily fold the second row and pack all your belongings. Even if your hands are full, the trunk is conveniently accessible with optional Powered Gesture Trunk Lid, allowing you to open and close the trunk lid with ease.
STANDARD DRIVER ASSISTANCE FEATURES
Helps to prevent collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians using camera, radar and ultrasonic sensors. If a potential front collision is detected, the system gives audible and visual warnings. If no action is taken*, the system applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact.
*Please note that if any action is taken, even minimal steering, the Emergency Braking system will assume the driver resumed control of the vehicle and the system will automatically disengage.
CRUISE CONTROL AND SPEED LIMITER
Cruise control is standard in the XE, as is Speed Limiter, which lets you set a maximum vehicle speed.4
DRIVER CONDITION MONITOR
By monitoring steering inputs and brake and accelerator pedal activity, Driver Condition Monitor detects if you’re starting to feel drowsy and gives you an early warning when you need to take a break.4
LANE KEEP ASSIST
Detects when the vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of its lane and applies a corrective torque to the steering wheel to gently guide your vehicle back.4
The Rear Camera provides improved visibility when reversing. To assist with parking, static lines representing your XE and its projected path appear on the touchscreen.4
DRIVER ASSISTANCE PACKS
Each optional pack offers a range of features to help keep you safe and informed.
Parallel and perpendicular parking are made easier with optional Park Assist, which steers your vehicle into and out of a suitable space. After selecting either Drive or Reverse, you only have to control the vehicle’s speed. Graphics and notifications will guide you through the maneuvers.4
360° PARKING AID
Gives complete confidence when maneuvering in tight spaces. The optional 360° Parking Aid includes sensors that can be either manually activated or automatically triggered when Reverse is selected. When maneuvering, graphics and audio feedback indicate your proximity to obstacles.4
REAR TRAFFIC MONITOR
Useful when reversing out of a parking spot, optional Rear Traffic Monitor warns you of hazards approaching from either side of your vehicle. It will alert you with both audio and visual warnings so you know what’s behind you, even with an obstructed view.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
The optional Adaptive Cruise Control keeps the XE a set distance from the car in front of you, even when it slows. Should the vehicle in front of you stop completely, the system is designed to help bring your vehicle to a smooth halt behind it. In stop-start traffic, Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically resume following the car in front.4
HIGH-SPEED EMERGENCY BRAKING
Detects when a potential frontal collision with another vehicle may occur and displays an alert, warning you to brake. In the event you do not react11, optional High-speed Emergency Braking will deploy the car brakes to help reduce the severity of any possible impact.4
BLIND SPOT ASSIST
Optional Blind Spot Assist can help you prevent collisions. If your vehicle detects another car in your blind spot when you begin to change lanes, a small warning light illuminates in the corresponding side mirror and corrective torque applied to the steering wheel guides you away from the approaching vehicle.5
