2015 Buick Models Getting A Standard Rearview Camera
2015 Buick Enclave will come equipped with a standard rearview camera. The same will count for every 2015 Buick model. With this step the company shows how important is the safety and technology. As a matter of fact, in 2013 the University of Michigan's Transportation Research Institute conducted a study which found that vehicles with rear backup cameras have a significantly reduced rate of backing crashes. Circa ninety-seven percent of the backing crashes in this study have involved striking another vehicle.
An added rearview camera increases the confidence of the driver. And although they do not come as a standard on all new models, Buick thinks that these cameras must be made a must-have feature.
What is more, in terms of safety, all 2015 Buick models, including Verano, LaCrosse, Enclave, Encore (fitted with AWD) and the Regal have a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety in the New Car Assessment Program run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Other technologies which are available and come to help prevent a collision, are the active safety technologies such as Forward Collision Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
At last, the OnStar Automatic Crash Response Technology is fitted as a standard on each vehicle for six months. When a collision happens, a specially trained Emergency Advisor is connected to the vehicle the moment a crash is detected. If the driver requests help, or can't answer, emergency responders are sent to the precise GPS location.
