Buick Enclave Safety Features for New Britain Connecticut SUV Shoppers
The Buick Enclave has more than one thing going for itself. The attractive exterior design is enticing enough to turn heads and get your attention. Once inside the car delights on all levels, from the spacious third row that's comfortable even for adult passengers, to the fantastic infotainment system, the contemporary overall look and feel, and the quality of materials.
Some of the Enclave’s best features, though, are hidden from view. Things like the tried-and-true 3.6-liter V6 engine all trim levels tap. Capable of producing a whopping 310 horsepower, the V6 feels phenomenal on this mid-sized luxury SUV where weight is relatively light and the 90speed automatic transmission highly responsive.
Another important aspect of the Enclave is how safe it is to drive. Unnoticeable at first glance, the car is packed with the latest technology in terms of safety - the modern active safety systems that not only alert you of perceived dangers but can also autonomously react to decrease the severity of the impact.
Different features come standard with different trim levels and they’re also available as optional features you can ask for specifically to be equipped on any Enclave model. Our sales team here at ... in ... can give you all the details on which trim comes with which safety system and how much would a specific feature cost if you want it on a trim that doesn’t include it as standard. Just pay us a visit and we’d be happy to present all options and help you choose the perfect configuration for your needs.
Let’s take a look at which options are available and what are they capable of.
1. Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert – the car’s sensors will monitor your blind spots while you drive. When you’re about to change lanes, a graphic alert placed on your side mirrors will alert you whether a car is driving in or rapidly approaching your blind zone so you know not to steer in its path.
2. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – while driving in Reverse, at low speeds, your infotainment display will send alerts if the system registers oncoming traffic from either the right or the left of your car. It's meant to protect you from causing an accident when you back away out of a tight parking spot or an alley that obstructs your visibility.
3. Forward Collision Alert. Sending an alert when a forward collision is imminent, the system works in two ways. It increases your awareness, thus shortening your response rate, and it also lets you know if you’re following the vehicle in front of you too closely. A great feature for novice drivers that can’t yet measure distances properly.
4. Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning – If the car’s sensors detect a lane change but the turn signal is not on and you’re not steering the wheel in that direction, it will send an alert and gently turn the wheel for you to correct the trajectory so that you keep your current lane.
5. Front Pedestrian Braking – This system will send an alert when a front collision with a pedestrian is imminent. It works at speeds of below 50 mph and it can either enhance driver hard braking or autonomously hit the brakes hard for you if you haven't already. The aim is to significantly reduce the severity of the impact or avoid it completely.
On top of the systems above, there're also the HD Surround Vision and the OnStar Safety and Security capability that when activated will automatically send notifications to emergency personnel in the event of a crash.
