According to the Owners Manual, it does apply the brakes, both as a warning and additional braking if the driver applies any braking.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) With Mitigation
The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system with
mitigation provides the driver with audible warnings,
visual warnings (within the EVIC), and may apply a
to warn the driver when it detects a potential
frontal collision. The warnings and limited braking
intended to provide the driver with enough time to react,
avoid or mitigate the potential collision.
FCW monitors the information from the forward looking
sensor as well as the Electronic Brake Controller (EBC), to
calculate a probable forward collision. When the system
determines that a forward collision is probable, an audible
and visual warning message will be displayed
within the EVIC along with a brake jerk warning. When
the system senses the driver applying the brakes to avoid
a probable collision, additional braking force will be
provided to the vehicle.
If there were some sort of problem with the controller applying the warning braking, it wouldn't be impossible for that to be too much warning.
The warning jerk is intended to be noticeable to the driver... where the driver would be presumed to be less than attentive or the warning would not be needed.
