The Sport grade comes standard with city AEB which can recognise pedestrians, detect a potential collision at up to 85km/h, and reduce speed by 40km/h in an emergency. There's also adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning and an alert which will sound if you're about to open your door on a cyclist or car.
