New Nissan Skyline Launches With ProPilot 2.0 Driver Assistance

Nissan has unveiled the updated Skyline sedan for the Japanese market and, with it, its latest ProPILOT 2.0 driver assistance technology.

The Japanese car manufacturer says ProPILOT 2.0 is the “world’s first driver assistance system to combine navigated highway driving with hands-off single-lane driving capabilities.” The system has been designed for on-ramp to off-ramp highway driving which works in conjunction with the vehicle’s navigation system.

To use these functions, all the driver has to do is set their destination in the navigation system and select a pre-defined route. When the car enters a highway, drivers will be prompted to activate the semi-autonomous driving system.

Nissan is so confident in the system that it says it allows for hands-off driving while the car is cruising in a given lane but drivers will need to manually change lanes. The system also monitors the driver’s attention and if the driver fails to respond to an alert, the system turns on the vehicle’s hazard lights and brings the car to a slow stop.

Alongside the inclusion of ProPILOT 2.0, the new Skyline benefits from some small styling modifications, including the company’s signature V-Motion grille. The rear also stands out from the pre-facelift Nissan thanks to the inclusion of circular graphics in the taillights designed to mimic the look of those Skyline models you may be more familiar with.

Customers can purchase a new Skyline in one of four grades: GT, GT Type P, GT Type SP, and 400R. The latter of these takes its name from the iconic R33 GT-R Nismo 400R and like other variants, is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. It is the most powerful model in the range and pumps out 400 HP at 6400 rpm and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) of torque, instead of The other three grades’ 300 HP.
