Automatic Emergency Braking
This tech is designed to help you avoid a collision or at least minimize the impact by activating the brakes automatically.
Forward Collision Alert
This system monitors the vehicle in front of you, and warns you when you’re about to hit that vehicle. Three colored indicators, running from green to amber to red, will warn you of the danger.
Following Distance Indicator
This tech will remind you to not tailgate by monitoring your distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
Lane Keep Assist offers automatic steering support if it senses you leaving your lane and is complemented by the alerts from the Lane Departure Warning system.
Forward Automatic Braking
When your car is in the Forward/Drive gear, and the system senses an imminent frontal collision, it will activate the brakes automatically to help mitigate or avoid the accident.
In the presence of darkness and with the absence of traffic, this system will automatically switch on the Equinox’s high-beam headlamps.
