The touchscreen displays the DRIVE ASSIST screen. The drive assist icon illuminates to confirm selection.

The DRIVE ASSIST screen displays the area directly ahead of the vehicle that may not be visible to the driver.

The touchscreen camera view displays three images: one from the front camera and one from each door mirror camera.

Touch the clear sight icon to view the CLEAR SIGHT GROUND VIEW screen. The icon illuminates to confirm selection. Follow the on-screen instructions. Alternatively, touch the clear sight icon from the CAMERAS menu screen. See SURROUND CAMERA SYSTEM.


The clear sight ground view only activates at vehicle speeds less than 10 mph (16 km/h).

The CLEAR SIGHT GROUND VIEW screen displays a view of the terrain ahead of the front bumper and under the hood. The touchscreen view is generated using recordings from the vehicle’s front camera. Hence, the touchscreen also displays text to confirm the images are not live. Recorded images of the vehicle’s front wheels and the hood area are overlaid on the camera images.

The drive assist feature may not operate correctly in certain conditions, for example:

The drive assist feature disables if Reverse (R) is engaged. The touchscreen displays a rear-view camera image.

The drive assist feature is suspended if the vehicle’s speed exceeds 19 mph (30 km/h). In this event, the touchscreen displays a warning message. Normal operation resumes when the vehicle’s speed is less than 19 mph (30 km/h).
