Available advanced safety technologies – including radar, cameras and ultrasonic sensors – help protect occupants before, during and after a collision. The safety features bolster driver vision and awareness of road hazards, and can even assist to help the driver avert potential crashes.
Among the most sophisticated of the features is front and rear automatic braking, which automatically applies the brakes in potential collision situations to help reduce damage or help avoid a collision with vehicles directly in front or behind.
Many of the advanced safety features are bundled in the Driver Awareness and Driver Assist Packages. The Driver Awareness package is standard with Luxury, Premium Luxury, as well as V-Sport. It includes:
- Safety Alert Seat
- Side Blind Zone Alert
- Lane Change Alert
- Lane Keep Assist
- Lane Departure Warning
- Forward Collision Alert
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- IntelliBeam high-beam control
- Rainsense wipers
The Driver Assist package is available on Premium Luxury and included on V-Sport Premium Luxury and includes all of the Driver Awareness package content, plus:
- Full-speed-range adaptive cruise control
- Automatic safety belt tightening
- Front and rear automatic braking
The advanced technologies complement the Cadillac CTS’s other safety features, including 10 standard air bags, safety belt pretensioners and load limiters, Rear Vision Camera, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with full-function traction control and four-wheel disc brakes with four-channel ABS, patented Duralife FNC-treated brake rotors and auto-dry brake functionality.
The Cadillac CTS Sedan offers Automatic Parking Assist, which enables the car to park itself in parallel and perpendicular spaces. It uses ultrasonic sensors to locate a suitable space and maneuver the car into the space, with the driver only required to select the gear and apply the accelerator and brake pedals. Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist is standard.
