Each year, vehicle design is advancing in every way, including in safety features. Car accidents are still one of the leading causes of death in the world, so car manufacturers are constantly working towards creating vehicles that are safer and easier to drive than the year before it. If you are looking for a new car, safety features should definitely be on your list of must-haves, particularly those that are new or innovative. If you’re curious about the new safety features that will be gracing the 2021 vehicle makes, here are some of the top safety options.
360 Degree Vision
360-degree vision is a feature that will increase your visibility of the roads around you as a driver. This is achieved through the use of multiple cameras on all sides of your vehicle. It can help with not only backing up and parallel parking but also can illuminate cars in your blind spots.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive cruise control is a new cruise control improvement that allows your car to adapt and shift to the speed around you on the highway rather than adhering to one specific feed, allowing you to seamlessly travel with the speed of traffic.
Lane Departure Sensor
This feature has been around for just a few years: an alert that sounds when you drift out of your lane. This feature will wake you up and keep you safe on long haul drives where you may be more likely to doze off.
While this may not be a vehicle feature, the rise of facial recognition to unlock mobile devices can help in vehicle safety. Although it’s never safe to look at your phone when driving, being able to unlock a phone without typing in a code can help when making calls or checking directions.
In some cars, especially the cars where the driver is seated higher up, like trucks and SUVs, it is difficult to see the pedestrians that walk in front of you. The pedestrian alert feature on newer vehicles senses people walking around your car and will alert you to this fact. Some cares may even be able to sense a pedestrian in the dark, which can make your drive safer.
