Rear Parking Assist System-Sonar sensors located in the front and rear bumper warn you of obstacles when maneuvering into tight spaces.
Surround View Monitor-This system offers a near all-around view in several viewing modes displayed on the navigation monitor. Displaying real-time images from four cameras, the Surround View Monitor provides a virtual bird’s eye view.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert-Sensors hidden in the corners of the rear bumper scan for passing vehicles as you back up. If the system detects a potential hazard, a warning sound and light appear on the outside rearview mirror closest to the other vehicle.
Smart Cruise Control-This system maintains a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
Forward Collision Warning System-Sedona’s Forward Collision Warning System employs front-mounted radar to detect a potential collision with the vehicle in front. It will also provide the driver an audible warning and visual signals on the meter display.
Lane Departure Warning System-The camera-based system monitors the position of your vehicle within its lane and helps warn you if it deviates or is about to from the lane.
Autonomous Emergency Braking-The system will apply the brakes to help prevent or lessen the effects of a frontal collision.
