The manual reads, "The Smart Cruise Control System allows you to program the vehicle to maintain constant speed and distance detecting the vehicle ahead without depressing the accelerator/ brake pedal." What it doesn't say is that if the forward collision warning sensor is triggered while smart cruise control is on, then NO automatic braking will occur. The non-hybrid model of the same model year has automatic emergency braking, but the hybrid only has non-emergency braking. In emergencies, it just beeps.
