Driver Attention Warning (DAW) provides notification to the driver when signs of driver inattentiveness are detected and recommends a rest if needed.

 

Forward Attention Warning (FAW) draws the driver’s attention with acoustic warning sounds and pop-up notifications if reckless or fatigued driving is detected by a interior camera.

 

In addition, the GV70 also features Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) to ensure optimal safety.
