Parking Support Brake function (static objects)*
*: If equipped
If the sensors detect a static object, such as a wall, in the traveling
direction of the vehicle and the system determines that a collision
may occur due to the vehicle suddenly moving forward due to an
accidental accelerator pedal operation, the vehicle moving the unin-
tended direction due to the wrong shift lever being selected, or
while parking or traveling at low speeds, the system will operate to
lessen the impact with the detected static object and reduce the
resulting damage.
Examples of function operation
This function will operate in situations such as the following if an object is
detected in the traveling direction of the vehicle.

depressed, or is depressed late
