Vauxhall has incorporated the latest automated driver assistance systems with the All-new Astra. In addition to the multifunction camera in the windscreen, the technology comprises four body cameras (one at the front, one at the rear and one on each side), five radar sensors (one at the front and one at each corner), as well as ultrasonic sensors front and rear.
Cameras and sensors are integrated with e-horizon connectivity in Intelli-Drive, which extends the range of the cameras and the radar. This enables the system to adapt the speed in curves, make speed recommendations and perform semi-autonomous lane changes. Hands-off detection on the steering wheel ensures the driver remains engaged at all times. The system also keeps the car in the centre of its lane.
The long list of automated driver assistance systems also includes adaptive cruise control, which increases or decreases speed to follow the vehicle ahead and can brake to a standstill if necessary. With the automatic transmission, driving resumes automatically thanks to “Stop & Go”.
Ultimate models of the All-new Astra feature Vauxhall’s IntelliLux LED® Pixel Light technology, which consists of 168 LED elements in the front lights. The main beam automatically adjusts to oncoming traffic in milliseconds, with the range and direction of the light changing according to the driving situation.
The offer of class-leading assistance systems also includes the Intelli-HUD head-up display standard across all models, the first for Vauxhall, which helps drivers better maintain eyes on the road.
