The standard Rear Vision Camera helps to provide clarity and peace of mind while maneuvering and parking your Canyon — even in the tightest of spots. It provides a view behind the vehicle, which is displayed in the radio screen.


This new feature is activated when a second-row door is opened and closed during or just before a trip. When Canyon is turned off, five audible chimes and a message in the driver information center remind you to check the second-row.
