One of the greatest dangers when driving is the all too common instance of a driver taking their eyes off of the road. Whether it is to check the GPS, change the radio station, or read a text, taking your eyes off of the road even for a second could lead to disaster. For this reason the CTS features an available Heads Up display that projects anything from navigation, to radio settings, to the car’s travelling speed subtly but noticeably onto the windshield so that you never have to take your eyes off the road. Although this feature seems more stylish than anything, nothing could be more useful to keeping you and your passengers safe than keeping the driver alert and focused on the road at all times. The Heads Up display combined with the CTS’s voice recognition capabilities means that you will never have to look at your phone, GPS, or radio while driving again.
- Automatic braking
Drivers are unpredictable. For this reason auto accidents happen every day. It is an unfortunate reality, but luckily the Cadillac CTS is equipped to reduce the chances of collision, and when collisions are unavoidable, it has the tools to minimize their severity. The car’s automatic braking system is equipped with front and rear sensors that detect objects in its path, and in turn activate the brakes to slow the car before impact, or even avoid collision altogether. This technological advancement has revolutionized driver safety standards and is a must have for car owners with precious cargo.
- Automatic seat belt
The CTS offers automatic seat belt tightening for the front two seats that can sense when the driver is abruptly stopping or turning. This nifty little feature can sense the presence of an emergency and tightens the belt to the driver and passenger to keep them safe in the case of a collision. This feature works hand in hand with the car’s 10 standard airbags to keep the driver safe and at a constant peace of mind while on the road.
- Adaptive cruise control
The engineers at Cadillac equipped the CTS with an adaptive cruise control that allows you to choose a set distance that you want to maintain between you and the car ahead of you. This feature will apply the brakes if it senses that you are getting too close to the car ahead of you, and will maintain a speed of your choice in the case of a clear road. This feature is perfect for long drives, and even works in stop-and-go traffic. Although this tool is extremely useful in many ways, it is still essential that the driver maintains attention to the road while driving at all times, even if it is made easier by the car’s features.
Each of these features is specially designed to make your driving experience safer for you, your passengers, and the other drivers on the road. The technological advancements present in the CTS are what make it one of the safest luxury sedans on the market.
