Three Essential Lexus Safety Features
As one of the industry’s leading automakers when it comes to cutting-edge technologies, Lexus is also on the forefront of advanced safety features. While features like efficient powertrains, innovative infotainment systems, and creature comforts may get all the attention, an impressive set of safety features should be vital in your car-buying decision. Here are three can’t-miss safety features that you’ll find on the majority of new Lexus cars sold at Woodfield Lexus.
10-Airbag System: Unlike older vehicles that would only have two front airbags, new Lexus cars are equipped with 10 airbags throughout the cabin. The front passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult or child, or is vacant. The front passenger airbag features two chambers, which create an indentation in the center impact area that helps to provide occupant protection in the event of a collision.
Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert: Found in vehicles like the 2019 Lexus RX, the Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps you change lanes with confidence. The system detects and warns you about any vehicles that are positioned in your car’s blind spot. Meanwhile, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help you when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side.
Vehicle Stability Control: This system can detect sideslip of the wheels when you’re cornering and will help control by using modulation of engine power and selective application of individual brakes. It also works in tandem with the Anti-lock Braking System and Traction Control to help improve driver control under all conditions.
