Advanced safety features based on 'control and alert' strategy

Cadillac XTS / Overview / Advanced safety features based on 'control and alert' strategy

The Cadillac XTS' technology fundamentally supports a suite of advanced safety features, based on a "control and alert" strategy that extends the vision around the vehicle. It helps drivers identify potential crash situations and even intervenes when a crash threat appears more imminent, employing layers of visual, audible and tactile (vibration) alerts, depending on the alert feature.

The alerts are designed to identify obstacles with sufficient warning to give the driver time to react and make changes - including the Safety Alert Seat feature, which vibrates either the left or right side of the driver's seat cushion, depending on the location of the impending concern. The intervening features, including Automatic Collision Preparation, take over if the threat appears more immediate or the driver does not react to previous alerts.

Two levels of control-and-alert protection are offered in the Cadillac XTS' Enhanced Safety Strategy (ESS) packages.

ESS I includes:

Lane Departure Warning
Forward Collision Alert
Safety Alert Seat
Side Blind Zone Alert
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Reflected LED display.

ESS II includes all ESS I content plus:

Head-up display (in color)
Front and Rear Automatic Brake
Adaptive Cruise Control
Automatic Collision Preparation

Cadillac XTS also features OnStar as standard. OnStar service also includes myCadillac and OnStar myLink mobile apps, whichoffer vehicle information and OnStar services via the customer's smartphone.
