Backup Camera

Parks vehicle without driver being physically inside the vehicle. Automatically controls acceleration, braking, steering, and shifting.

Emergency Intervention

r

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

Detects potential collisions while in forward motion, provides forward collision warning, and automatically applies the brakes to avoid or lessen the severity of impact. Some systems include pedestrian or other object detection.

/

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY STEERING

Detects potential collision and automatically controls steering to avoid or lessen the severity of impact. Some systems include pedestrian or other object detection.

q

REAR AUTOMATIC BRAKING

Detects potential collision while traveling in reverse and automatically applies the brakes to avoid or lessen the severity of impact. Some systems include pedestrian or other object detection

Collision Intervention

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

Detects potential collisions while in forward motion, provides forward collision warning, and automatically applies the brakes to avoid or lessen the severity of impact. Some systems include pedestrian or other object detection.

Rear Cross Traffic Warning

Comfort & Style Features

Ventilated Seats

Ventilated seats are one of our favorite modern luxury car features. They work like heated seats, bringing climate control to the seat itself. The result is that most drivers and passengers won’t need to use so much air conditioning since they instead can rely on ventilated seats to stay cool.

Remote Start

These systems allow you to start the car by using the key fob. That gives the car time to warm up, meaning you never have to sit inside a cold car on a winter day.

Massaging Seats

This feature includes air bladders that inflate and deflate as you drive down the road. Most high-end cars use up to 10 such bladders, which provide the kneading feeling you get from an actual massage.

Executive Rear Seats

Executive rear seats come with a full-length center console, which boasts audio and climate controls. The seats are typically adjustable, as well. They usually can be reclined, like airplane seats.

?

Active Suspension

Active suspension systems use sensors to determine the severity of a bump in the road. Then they adjust the wheel’s travel to minimize the bump’s impact on passengers, which leads to a vastly improved ride. Active suspension systems also reduce body roll to provide a more stable ride around corners.
