The BLIS1 function is designed to help provide assistance in heavy traffic with several lanes moving in the same direction by helping the driver to detect the presence of vehicles in the "blind spot" area behind and to the side of the vehicle.

BLIS is a driver support system designed to alert the driver of:
  • vehicles in your "blind spot"
  • vehicles approaching rapidly in adjacent lanes.

BLIS overview
  1. P5-Icon red circle 1Blind spot zone
  2. P5-Icon red circle 2Rapidly approaching vehicle zone
The system is designed to react to:
  • vehicles passing your vehicle
  • vehicles that are rapidly approaching your vehicle from behind.

When BLIS detects a vehicle in zone 1 or a rapidly approaching vehicle in zone 2, an indicator light will illuminate in the relevant rearview mirror and glow steadily. If the driver then uses the turn signal on the side in which the warning has been given, the indicator light will become brighter and begin flashing.

BLIS is active when your vehicle is traveling at a speed over 10 km/h (6 mph).

If a passing vehicle's speed is more than 15 km/h (9 mph) faster than your vehicle, BLIS will not react.


The light illuminates on the side of the vehicle where the system has detected the vehicle. If the vehicle is passed on both sides simultaneously, both lights come on.

  • The driver is advised to read all sections in the Owner's Manual about this function to learn of its limitations, which the driver must be aware of before using the function.
  • Driver support functions are not a substitute for the driver's attention and judgment.
