Let modern technology take the effort, stress and a whole lot of uncertainties out of driving. Then discover how much more relaxed and fulfilling driving can be.
AFL+ is permanently fed all speed and steering angle data by the vehicle electronics and sensors. Based on this data, AFL+ controls the profile of the bi-xenon headlights, ensuring you benefit from optimal lighting at all times and under all conditions.
One of the many advanced AFL+ functions is High Beam Assist, which automatically switches the headlights between high and dipped beam. It is controlled via a special camera mounted behind the windscreen. This recognises preceding or approaching traffic and whether or not the vehicle is in the town or the countryside.
The front camera system in the new Vauxhall Cascada has four functions, all designed to make safety that much more positive and driving much more relaxed.
How many times have you missed a road sign? Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) helps ensure that you don’t miss any hazard or speed warnings. In addition to detecting speed limit signs, the new system also detects signs related to temporary speed limits (such as those imposed due to hazardous weather conditions, for example) and displays them right in front of you.
The front camera system also monitors the lane marking lines for Lane Departure Warning (LDW). This is instantly activated when the car crosses a line without signalling, instantly alerting you with audible and optical warnings.
The Following Distance Indication (FDI) measures the distance to the car ahead, letting you know via the central display if this distance shortens by a potentially hazardous degree.
Forward Collision Alert (FCA) gives visual and audible warnings when a collision is likely. You can set it to different distances, making the system particularly useful in poor light or bad weather conditions.
The rear-view camera gives you a clear view of 130 degrees around the back. It is mounted high, to enable you to better judge distances. Selecting reverse gear activates the camera and the image is displayed on the colour display.
Advanced Park Assist quickly takes any hit-and-miss element out of parking. It simply calculates the steering moves you need to make and indicates them on the central display. And, as you don’t have to let go of the steering wheel, you are always in control.
When changing lanes timing is critical. To protect against unseen issues the Side Blind Spot Alert system uses sensors to cover the likely blind spots. When indicating to pull out or change lane an LED light illuminates in the appropriate exterior mirror. If the system detects a vehicle in the blind spot, the LED light flashes and a chime sounds as a warning.
