Sports cars have a reputation for their ability to meet people’s need for speed. However, those who are just looking from the sidelines can’t help but wonder, what kind of features would be required to ensure the safety of the driver and passenger everytime they get on this thrilling ride. Here are some of the safety features of the 2018 Lexus LC 500 to allay those concerns.
Luxury Care for Luxury Coupe
You can expect a car manufacturer like Lexus who designs fantastic sports cars to invest in their safety tech and features as much as they would on their power engines and car styling. That expectation is certainly met with the LC 50.
Lexus takes safety very seriously, that’s why they’ve come up with four technologies that work together in a cohesive suite to make sure you get to where you’re supposed to go safe and sound. Backup cameras, brake systems, driver-assist features like intuitive parking, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, and pre-collision system with pedestrian detection are among the safety capabilities of the vehicle.
Heads Up Display
This is meant to minimize any distractions that might pull the driver’s attention off the road. The Heads Up Display is projected in full color right on the dashboard in front of the driver. Other important information relating to safety, navigation, and performance can be viewed from it, allowing the driver to make necessary adjustments.
Imagine suddenly wanting to adjust the car temperature, but instead of turning knobs or pushing buttons you simply say out loud, “the car feels hot and stuffy,” and then it suddenly gets cooler. Sounds very nifty, yes? Well, it’s not just some fancy add-on inside your Lexus, but it’s meant to help keep you safer on the road. Instead of fidgeting with knobs and buttons, you can keep your hand on the wheel and eyes on the road, and stay in control of the drive. It’s Bluetooth-compatible as well, so you can link it up to your smartphone, as well as to the infotainment system to control navigation, audio, and phone calls.
Much like the Heads Up display and the voice command, the Siri feature integrated in the Lexus 500 is supposed to help keep the driver’s focus on the road. Siri can fill you in on your text messages, emails, and other tasks straight from your iPhone. No need to steal a glance on your phone while you’re driving.
You can therefore say that the 2018 Lexus LC 500 is one safe car!
