What are the safety features of this 8 seater minivan?

A forward collision avoidance system for cars, pedestrians, cyclists, and intersections – The system can detect other road users on more acute angles, such as at intersections, and assists the driver in safely navigating, as well as applying the brakes in the event of a collision.

Collision avoidance assist for rear cross traffic – Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist alerts you and applies the brakes, if necessary, when reversing out of a parking space or driveway.

Dynamic Guidelines with Around View Monitor – In addition to a birds-eye view with zooming capabilities, the Around View Monitor can also display images from the front, the rear and sides of the vehicle.

Assist with lane keeping and lane following – Detects the vehicle’s current lane of travel, notifying the driver of any drifts outside of it and providing steering controls to guide the vehicle back into its lane of travel. As part of this system, Lane Follow Assist steers the vehicle automatically whenever it detects it is unintentionally drifting away from the lane.

Collision avoidance assist for blind spots – With Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, sensors monitor vehicles in or approaching your blind spots. The Carnival features a new differential braking system that applies the brakes when it detects an imminent collision with a vehicle in its blind spot, along with audio and visual alerts.

Brake with multi-collision capability – By automatically applying the brakes after an initial collision, Multi-Collision Braking reduces the risk of secondary collisions.

Alert for rear occupants – Using ultrasonic sensors, the Rear Occupant Alert system detects passengers in the second and third row seats, alerting the driver before exiting.

Exit assistance for safe exits – When the system detects a hazard behind the vehicle, such as a cyclist or another vehicle, Safe Exit Assist prevents the rear doors from opening.

A total of seven airbags – Among Carnival’s standard features are a dual-front & side airbag system, dual side-curtain airbags in all three rows, and a driver’s knee airbag.
