Kia Soul (SK3) 2020-2020 Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) system (Camera type) / Brake operation

  • In an urgent situation, the braking system enters into the ready status for prompt reaction to assist the driver in depressing the brake pedal.
  • FCA provides additional braking power for optimum braking performance, when the driver depresses the brake pedal during FCA operation.
  • The braking control is automatically deactivated, when the driver sharply depresses the accelerator pedal, or when the driver abruptly operates the steering wheel.
  • The braking control is automatically canceled, when risk factors disappear.

CAUTION

The driver should always pay great caution to vehicle operation, even though there is no warning message or warning alarm.

WARNING

The FCA cannot avoid all collisions. The FCA might not completely stop the vehicle before collision, due to ambient, weather and road conditions. The driver has the responsibility to drive safely and control the vehicle.

WARNING

The FCA operates in accordance with the risk levels, such as the distance from the vehicle in front, the speed of the vehicle in front, and the driver's vehicle operation. For the system to activate, do not attempt risky driving.
