2014 Infiniti Q50 - The Safest on the Road
2014 Infiniti Q50 has proved itself to have one of the most advanced standard fit collision avoidance systems. Together with its recently announced 5 star Euro NCAP rating the Infiniti Q50 is easily one of the safest cars on the road.
By using a highly specified radar system along with several cameras located around the vehicle to constantly monitor the vehicles surrounding area, many systems are able to combine together and reduce the risk of an accident ever taking place. Forward Emergency Braking is only one of many other features included in the optional Safety Pack:
- Reversing (Back-up Collision Intervention). Detects moving vehicles and objects behind the car when reverse gear is selected, warning the driver with visual and audible alerts. If necessary the system can autonomously engage the brakes to avoid a collision.
- Drifting out of lane (Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention). Industry-first system senses unintended lane drift and assists the driver in guiding the vehicle back to the centre of its lane.
- Moving into the path of another vehicle (Blind Spot Intervention and Blind Spot Warning). World-first technology aids the driver in avoiding vehicles concealed in the blind-spot area during lane-change manoeuvres.
- Motorway hold-ups (Predictive Forward Collision Warning). Another world-first for Infiniti, PFCW warns the driver of hazards which lie beyond the driver's field of view – seeing past not just the car in front but two cars ahead.
- Low-speed manoeuvring in busy areas (Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection). Infiniti's world-first real-time camera system provides a virtual 360 degree view of the environment around the car, with visual and audible warnings of hazards.
As well as the availability of the most advanced safety systems, every Infiniti Q50 includes safety-oriented features such as:
- Seat belt reminder system for all seats
- Speed limiter
- Active pop-up bonnet for pedestrian safety
- Electronic Stability Control with Active Trace Control
- LED fog lights front and rear
