Five Vehicle Safety Feature Must-Haves

buying a new lexusYou are the type of person that researches big purchased. When buying a new car, one of the first things you look at are the safety features included in the various models. Before you get dazzled by a shiny brochure or fast-talking salesperson, you should know that not every new safety feature has been tested, nor has every new feature proven to be worth the money.

The following five features, on the other hand, have been shown to be helpful and worth the money. Keep your eyes peeled for one or more of them on any car you are considering adding to your fleet.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Cruise control is nothing new, but the newer systems have great safety features. Adaptive cruise control uses cameras and forward-looking sensors. The system will automatically slow your car down to adapt to traffic and provide you with a safe distance between your car and the one ahead of you. When it is safe to do so, your car will automatically resume the preset speed.

Forward Collision Avoidance System

Using the same sensors that are utilized for adaptive cruise control, the collision avoidance system will alert you with an auditory or visual signal when you are getting too close to the vehicle in front of you.

Autonomous Braking

A car that hits its own brakes? If you fail to respond to the warning your car gives you, it will brake automatically. This feature, combined with the forward collision avoidance system, is one to look for.

Adaptive Headlights

Imagine headlights that allow you to see more clearly as you round a curve. That is exactly what these do, and the Highway Loss Data Institute found them to be incredibly useful. Adaptive headlights have contributed to property damage liability claims dropping by close to 10%.

Sideview Assist

Do you forget to look in your blind spots? If turning your head to look over your shoulder is a habit you have yet to form, sideview assist is for you. Sensors at the sides of your car will alert you with a visual or auditory clue when there is something next to you that you may be unable to see.

There are dozens of other safety features on today’s market, but these are the ones to be on the lookout for. While nothing is guaranteed to keep you safe, these will go a long way toward ensuring your commute goes smoothly.
