PRACTICALITY AND SAFETY
XE accommodates a range of features, helping you to reach each destination safely.

STANDARD DRIVER ASSISTANCE FEATURES
CRUISE CONTROL AND SPEED LIMITER
Cruise Control enables you to maintain a constant speed without continued use of the accelerator pedal. Using Speed Limiter, you can set a maximum vehicle speed.
DRIVER CONDITION MONITOR
By monitoring steering inputs, brake and throttle 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.
LANE KEEP ASSIST
Detects when the vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of its lane and applies a corrective torque to the steering wheel, encouraging you to gently guide your vehicle back.
The Rear Camera provides improved visibility when reversing. To assist with parking, static lines representing XE and its projected path appear on the Touchscreen.
MATRIX LED HEADLIGHTS
Aiming to keep all road users safe, optional Matrix LED headlights automatically adjust the shape of the beam to help avoid dazzling oncoming vehicles. Partnered with Animated Directional Indicators, they allow other road users to recognise your intended direction of travel sooner.
DRIVER ASSISTANCE PACKS
Each pack offers a range of features to help keep you safe and informed. Park Pack is standard on SE. Park Pack and Drive Pack are standard on HSE*.
Parallel and perpendicular parking are made even easier with Park Assist1, steering 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 manoeuvres.
360° PARKING AID
Gives complete confidence when manoeuvring in tight spaces. Optional 360° Parking Aid includes sensors that can be either manually activated or automatically triggered when Reverse is selected. When manoeuvring, visual graphics and audio feedback indicate your proximity to obstacles.
REAR TRAFFIC MONITOR
Useful when reversing out of a parking bay, Rear Traffic Monitor1 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, even with an obstructed view.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
Keeps a safe distance from the vehicle in front even when it slows. Should it stop completely, you will come to a smooth halt behind it. In stop-start traffic, Adaptive Cruise Control2 will automatically resume following the car in front.
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 react, High-speed Emergency Braking2 will deploy the car brakes to help reduce the severity of any possible impact.
BLIND SPOT ASSIST
Blind Spot Assist2 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 wing mirror and corrective torque applied to the steering wheel encourages you to guide away from the approaching vehicle.
