The new Soul packs plenty of safety technology into its appealing design. Its safety systems help keep collision forces under control in ways that protect people, while maximizing the driver’s ability to avoid trouble.
Using radar technology, BCW monitors your sides and rear and warns you if it detects a vehicle approaching into your blind spot from behind or adjacent lanes of travel. The system issues visual alerts on the side mirror and an audible alert.
As you reverse out into a traffic lane, RCCW (manual transmission-equipped models only) scans the area using radar, and warns you with an audible alert signal if it senses a vehicle approaching. On automatic transmission – equipped models, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) also uses ESC to brake, help avoid a collision or reduce damage.
To help you park safely and confidently, PDW-F uses ultrasonic sensors mounted on the front bumpers and uses visual alerts on the side mirrors as well as audible alerts to warn you of any vehicles or obstacles ahead that may be getting too close.
Dynamic parking guidance adjusts its guide lines as you turn in reverse for precise parking, and now features a top view option on the center screen.
HAC prevents the vehicle from rolling backward when you are at a standstill on an upward incline by gently applying the brakes for up to two extra seconds while you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator.
To help protect occupants and potentially reduce injuries in the event of a collision, the Soul offers driver and front passenger airbags, two front side airbags, and available side-curtain airbags running the length of the interior on each side of the vehicle.
ESC ensures optimal braking performance and directional control by automatically delivering the right amount of braking force to each wheel based on individual wheel speed, steering angle and skidding.
