What Features Are Included with Nissan Safety Shield 360?
As we previously mentioned, Nissan Safety Shield 360 is a state-of-the-art suite of technology systems designed to alert the driver to possibly dangerous situations on the road and step in as backup when necessary. Let’s take a closer look at what each driver-assist feature does:
Automatic Emergency Braking With Pedestrian Detection
This system provides audio and visual alerts when it detects an imminent forward crash with another vehicle or pedestrian, and even applies the brakes if the driver’s response is not sufficient to avoid or mitigate collisions
Lane Departure Warning
This advanced technology helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to. The system recognizes lane markers and it warns the driver when it detects the car is unintentionally drifting out of the lanes.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
When backing out of a parking spot, this system alerts the driver with an audible warning if it detects an approaching vehicle from the left or the right side. Rear Cross Traffic Alert is active once the vehicle is shifted into reverse.
High Beam Assist
Designed to reduce night-driving burden, this technology automatically switches the headlights from high beam to low beam when it senses oncoming traffic.
Blind Spot Warning
The Blind Spot Warning system alerts the driver with a chime when it detects a vehicle approaching the blind spot area to avoid a collision and help change lanes with more confidence.
Rear Automatic Braking
This system helps the driver detect stationary objects when backing up and, if necessary, engages the brakes to help avoid a rear collision or lessen the severity of the impact.
