Standard Safety Features
Enjoy a heightened sense of confidence during your daily commute with the Dodge Hornet’s standard safety features. Equipped on all 2023 Hornet models, this suite of advanced safety features assist the driver in ensuring a safe and comfortable driving experience for all. These features include:
- Forward Collision Warning with Full Stop:
Using a front mounted radar, this feature detects obstacles ahead of the vehicle and alerts the driver with audible and visual warnings. It can also engage the vehicle’s brakes, bringing it to a full stop if it detects an imminent collision.
- Automatic Emergency Braking:
Using the same front mounted radar, this feature automatically engages the brakes during an emergency situation.
- Blind Spot Monitoring:
Using rear mounted radar sensors, this feature detects if there’s a vehicle in your blindspots and alerts the driver using audible and visual signals.
- Adaptive Cruise Control:
Using both the front mounted radar and camera systems, this feature allows you to select a speed and desired follow distance from the vehicle ahead. It then automatically modulates the vehicle’s acceleration and braking to maintain your desired distance.
- Lane Keep Assist:
Using front mounted cameras, this feature reads the lane roads ahead and gently vibrates the steering wheel if you begin to veer off the centre of the lane.
Available Tech Pak
The available Tech Pak is a suite of active safety systems that can be factory ordered for your 2023 Dodge Hornet. By opting for this available package, you’re able to take advantage of advanced safety features such as Intelligent Speed Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, and Drowsy Driver Protection. To assist with difficult parking maneuvers, the Park-Sense® Front and Rear Park Assist System and 360-degree camera are there to make parking a breeze.
Traffic Sign Recognition
For drivers with a lead foot, you’ll love the available Traffic Sign Recognition feature on the Dodge Hornet. With the help of forward-facing cameras on the vehicle, along with intelligent navigation software, this advanced technology identifies the current speed limit on the road you’re currently driving on and warns you if you’re exceeding it.
Intelligent Speed Assist
Similar to the adaptive cruise control feature, the available Intelligent Speed Assist helps drivers maintain a set speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. Radar sensors scan the road ahead for traffic sign markers and accordingly adjust the vehicle's speed and follow distance.
Drowsy Driver Detection
A feature meant to detect the driving behaviors of a tired driver, the available Drowsy Driver Detection system uses audible and visual alerts to prompt drivers into taking a break from the road. After prolonged periods of driving time, or if steering behaviour signals driver fatigue, the system encourages drivers to consider getting off the road for their safety and the safety of other motorists.
Parallel & Perpendicular Park Assist
Park like a pro with the Hornet’s available Parallel & Perpendicular Park Assist. This system enables drivers to park in tight and challenging parking spaces thanks to the Hornet’s multi-angle rear-view camera.
Experience semi-autonomous driving with the Hornet’s available Highway Assist feature. This system offers drivers the ability to achieve Level 2 autonomy when driving on highways and main roads.
