When the millimetre-wave radar and monocular camera detect a collision with a vehicle ahead is likely, it alerts the driver using a buzzer and on the multi-information display, and activates pre-crash brake assist when the driver depresses the brake pedal. If the driver cannot depress the brake pedal, then it activates the pre-crash brakes to help avoid a collision or mitigate the impact force.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Control alerts the driver with a sensory alert using a buzzer and on the multi-information display if the system judges the vehicle is about to cross the lane markings without using the turn signals, and assists steering to avoid lane departure. In addition, Vehicle Sway Warning monitors steering operation and the vehicle’s position within a lane to detect vehicle sway due to driver in attention or drowsiness, and alerts the driver by a buzzer and on the multi-information display.
When the quasi-millimeter-wave radars in the rear bumper detect vehicles in adjacent lanes that aren’t visible in the door mirrors, the system activates an LED warning indicator in the relevant door mirror the moment a vehicle enters this blind spot.
To assist safe reversing, RCTA uses quasi-millimeter-wave radars in the rear bumper to detect approaching vehicles in difficult-to-see areas behind the vehicle. When an approaching vehicle is detected, RCTA alerts the driver using a buzzer and an LED indicator in the relevant door mirror.
If an abnormal shift change from R to D, D to R, N to R, P to D, or P to R range is detected while accelerating, a warning is displayed in the multi-information display and power output is reduced to limit acceleration, helping to avoid a collision.
The GS F features dual-stage SRS airbags (Front seats), SRS knee airbags (Front seats), SRS side airbags (Front and outboard rear seats), and SRS curtain shield airbags (Front and rear door windows).
AL-TPWS contributes to tire life and fuel efficiency by displaying the pressure of each tire in the multi-information display. When low tire pressure is detected, the display shows the air pressure value of the affected tire in amber, together with an in-meter warning lamp.
A high rigidity body structure provides the foundation for the heart-pounding exhilaration and approachable fun of “F” sports driving. Its outstanding rigidity is the product of innovative production technologies including laser screw welding, laser welding and body adhesives. The addition of front and rear body braces with extra brace coupling points on the front, together with extensive spot welding, further contributes to the highly responsive and stable handling, as well as the refined ride comfort.
For dynamic high-performance “F” sports driving that feels right at home running a series of corners on the race track, the GS F is equipped with double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. In addition to the use of exclusive components, each component was optimized for rigidity and layout. They were then honed under demanding conditions on race tracks around the world to ensure excellent steering response for exhilarating driving fun, together with outstanding ride comfort.
Brake cooling ducts integrated in the spindle grille are sandwiched by an engine oil cooler on the left and transmission oil cooler on the right. Together with the large radiator grille, they help to simultaneously achieve excellent cooling performance and aerodynamic efficiency.
