Nissan is making it easier for its European customers to get their hands on its latest technologies with the launch of the Nissan Vision range. The special models feature the company’s Around View Monitor system and other safety technologies – without having to pony up for other high-priced features.
The Nissan Vision range includes the Qashqai, Juke and X-Trail crossovers, as well as the Pulsar hatchback (not pictured). So specified, they come with the AVM system that incorporates four cameras on the outside of the vehicle to display a virtual overhead view of its surroundings on the NissanConnect dashboard screen.
“AVM is part of Nissan’s desire to remove the stress and difficulty from modern-day driving by giving drivers the confidence to manage manoeuvres more easily,” the automaker stated. “It is also an integral part of Nissan’s journey towards ProPilot, the brand’s autonomous driving technology which will debut in Europe on the Qashqai crossover in 2017.”
Also standard on the Vision models are lane departure warning, moving object detection, emergency forward braking, blind spot warning, high beam assist, and traffic sign recognition systems. These are features you might expect to find on luxury automobiles, but the N-Vision models are based on Nissan’s mass-market vehicles in their mid-level N-Connecta trim that otherwise come with roof rails, upholstery part in leather, part Alcantara, but not the full options packages with which these safety systems are often bundled.
