THE 2019 CTS-V SAFETY FEATURES

SET YOUR SPACE

Available Adaptive Cruise Control–Advanced employs both radar and cameras to maintain a set selected distance between you and the detected vehicle ahead while you steer.

 

TRULY FORWARD THINKING

Available Forward Collision Alert monitors traffic ahead, alerting you if a potential frontend collision is imminent, while the available Following Distance Indicator shows the following time to the detected vehicle ahead (in seconds) in the Driver Information Center (DIC).

 

WINDSHIELD WIPERS AND BRAKES WORK TOGETHER

Available Rainsense Wipers automatically engage when rain is detected, adjusting their speed to the rain’s intensity. Whenever wipers are activated, Auto-Dry brakes automatically position the brake pads closer to the rotors to sweep away moisture and improve performance.

 

STRONG ENOUGH TO CRUMPLE

The ultra-high-strength steel safety cage features strategically placed crumple zones that help absorb and manage crash energy. The safety cage is also equipped with 10 standard airbags,1 including knee airbags for the driver and front passenger and side-impact airbags for front and rear outboard passengers.

 

FIRMLY REASSURING

During emergency braking or sudden maneuvers, available Automatic Seat Belt Tightening activates. When conditions revert to normal, the seat belts ease automatically.

 

TRAVEL THE STRAIGHT AND SMART

Using a camera sensor to monitor lane boundaries, available Lane Keep Assist can gently turn the steering wheel if the system anticipates the vehicle is leaving the lane unintentionally or without using your turn signal. Working in conjunction with the available Safety Alert Seat, available Lane Departure Warning shows a visual alert in the cluster and sends a warning pulse through the seat cushion when your vehicle crosses the detected lane marking.

 

AN ATTENTION-GRABBER

Available Lane Change Alert surveys the area well beyond the side blind zone and illuminates the side-mirror warning icon to alert you if a moving vehicle is rapidly approaching. Available Side Blind Zone Alert monitors your blind zones, so if a moving vehicle is in the adjacent lane, it also illuminates the side-mirror icon. In both features, if you’ve activated your turn signal, the icon on the side mirror flashes to alert you. Safety or driver-assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for more important feature limitations and information.

 

GRABS YOUR ATTENTION. SUBTLY.

Cadillac’s available patented Safety Alert Seat sends a discreet pulse to the left, right or both sides of the driver’s seat, indicating the direction of the threat — left, right, front or rear.

 

BE ALERTED EVEN IN REVERSE

When backing out of a parking space, available Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns of oncoming traffic to either side of your vehicle and provides an audible warning or a pulse to the Safety Alert Seat.

 

GAIN PRECIOUS TIME

Up to certain speeds, available Forward and Reverse Automatic Braking can sense imminent forward and reverse collisions and automatically engage the brakes, helping to reduce crash impacts.
