It’s the best kind of backseat driver. Using a forward-facing camera mounted above the inside rearview mirror, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)59 works proactively to keep the TLX centered in a detected lane.
- If the LKAS system has been engaged and you start to drift away from the middle of the lane, it will gently apply steering torque and help guide the car back to the center of the lane.
- Though the system initiates a slight tug, the driver can easily hold course, as the system will not take control of the wheel.
- The system will not steer the car indefinitely. If it senses no steering input from the driver for a certain period of time, the system presents a message instructing the driver to begin steering again.
- If you steer the TLX out of a detected lane without signaling your intention, the Lane Departure Warning system will give you an audio alert and a message on the Multi-Information Display (MID).
