Warning and control

Lane Following Assist

If the vehicle ahead and/or both lane markings are detected and your vehicle speed is below 110 mph (180 km/h), the green indicator light will illuminate on the cluster, and the system will help center the vehicle in the lane by assisting the steering wheel.


When the steering wheel is not assisted, the green indicator light will blink and change to white.

Hands-off warning

If the driver takes their hands off the steering wheel for several seconds, the ‘Place hands on the steering wheel’ (or ‘Keep hands on the steering wheel’) warning message will appear and an audible warning will sound in stages.

First stage : Warning message

Second stage : Warning message (red steering wheel) and audible warning

If the driver still does not have their hands on the steering wheel after the hands-off warning, the ‘Lane Following Assist (LFA) canceled’ (or ‘LFA (Lane Following Assist) cancelled’) warning message will appear and Lane Following Assist will be automatically canceled.


  • Lane Following Assist does not operate at all times. It is the responsibility of the driver to safely steer the vehicle and to maintain the vehicle in its lane.
  • The hands–off warning message may appear late depending on road conditions. Always have your hands on the steering wheel while driving.
  • If the steering wheel is held very lightly the hands–off warning message may appear because the system may not recognize that the driver has their hands on the steering wheel.
  • If you attach objects to the steering wheel, the hands-off warning may not work properly.


  • You may change settings from the instrument cluster (User Settings) or infotainment system (Vehicle Settings), whichever option that is provided with your vehicle. For more details, see "User Settings" section in chapter 4, or "Vehicle Settings" section in supplied Infotainment Manual.
  • When both lane markings are detected, the lane lines on the cluster will change from grey to white.
  • If lane markings are not detected, steering wheel control by Lane Following Assist can be limited depending on whether a vehicle is in front or the driving conditions of the vehicle.
  • Even though the steering is assisted by Lane Following Assist, the driver may control the steering wheel.
  • The steering wheel may feel heavier or lighter when the steering wheel is assisted by Lane Following Assist than when it is not.
