Nissan Will Expand ProPilot Assist to Rogue Sport Crossover
One of the Nissan’s top-selling models in Europe, the Nissan Rogue Sport crossover SUV, will get ProPilot Assist, Nissan semi-autonomous driver-assist system, in late 2018. Starting this year, the tech will be expanded to 20 models in different markets by the end of 2022, including both pure-electric cars and hybrids. Currently, the tech option is only available on such Nissan and Infiniti models as the 2019 Infiniti QX50, the all-electric 2018 Nissan Leaf, and the Nissan Rogue. After that, the next model to get this driving technology will likely be the refreshed 2019 Altima midsize sedan.
Being basically a modified version of adaptive cruise control system with steering assist, ProPilot Assist can help drivers to stay centered and on-course through highway curves; in other words, it helps drivers accelerate, brake, and navigate traffic within a single lane on the highway. The Rogue Sport crossover utilizes a radar system along with a camera to keep distance from the vehicles ahead. The ProPilot driving technology detects if a driver has taken hands off of the steering wheel, and sets off an alarm in 10 secs. And it’s so easy-to-use great feature that remains active in stop-and-go traffic situations.
