This don't just help the driver to park his vehicle properly, it also helps to prevent any collision while parking.
4. Evasive steering technology.
According to Ford, “If the distance to the vehicle ahead of you isn’t too short and a collision can’t be avoided by braking alone, Evasive Steering Assist can help you maneuver around the vehicle by providing additional steering support when the effort you’re applying is not sufficient.”
5. Launch Gears
This feature is commonly found in Toyota. It improves belt efficiency and increase car ratio speed by 15% without performance deterioration. This launch gear is always active whenever a car is travelling up to a speed of 25miles per hour. Above that, the gear would switch to the belt-and-pulley system.
6. Head up display
This feature helps car owners to be more focused while driving. Instead of looking down to see crucial information while driving such as fuel levels, navigation speed etc. This sophisticated feature helps drivers to change their display using steering wheel buttons. This helps to keep drivers more focused on the road. More focus and less distraction leads to road safety.
