Nissan Rogue Sport, Qashqai And 2019 Altima To Get ProPilot Driver Assist Tech

More than 120,000 Nissan cars equipped with ProPilot are currently being driven in various global markets, and the Japanese automaker is expanding the availability of the system.

In a recent announcement, Nissan said that the driver assist system will be offered on the Rogue Sport in the United States, and the Qashqai in Canada, starting from late 2018. It will also be adopted by the 2019 Altima sedan.

Moreover, the tech suite will be expanded to 20 models and 20 markets by the end of fiscal year 2022, the company says, as part of the ‘Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022’ midterm plan.

“ProPilot is an iconic technology for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s vision of how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society. Its acceptance by consumers has been beyond expectations, and we’re pleased to expand its availability to more popular models such as Altima, X-Trail and Rogue Sport”, commented the brand’s chief planning officer, Philippe Klein.

Originally introduced in the Japan-only Serena minivan back in 2016, the ProPilot technology was eventually extended to other vehicles such as the European market Qashqai, the Japanese market X-Trail and the US market Rogue, as well as the second-gen Leaf.

Initially described as an enhanced version of the intelligent cruise control rather than a semi-autonomous driving feature, the technology is now being referred to as “a hands-on driver-assist system”. It works by combining the intelligent cruise control with steering assist and allows drivers to navigate through stop-and-go traffic, keep the vehicle in the lane, and maintain a set speed and distance to the car ahead, and can be activated by pushing a button located on the steering wheel.
