The Cadillac Smart System Safety Suite

Counteraction, prevention, and support are the pillars of the Cadillac Smart System Safety Suite. This suite is a collection of driver assist, alerts, and monitoring features that comes standard on every single Cadillac XT5. Among convenience perks such as Rear Park Assist and an HD Rear Vision Camera, the Smart System Safety Suite comes with much more. 

Driving Assist

The Front Pedestrian Braking feature alerts the driver if it senses a pedestrian or obstacle in front of the moving vehicle, can reinforce the driver’s hard braking, or even apply the brakes automatically should the driver not respond fast enough.

The Automatic Emergency Braking feature works similarly to prevent front-end collisions with the vehicles ahead of you up to speeds of 80km/h

Driving Alerts

The Forward Collision Alert feature works in tandem with Automatic Emergency Braking to warn the driver with audio cues if it detects the possibility of a front-end collision. It also offers a tailgating alert function that will alert the driver if it detects a dangerously small distance between vehicles.

The Safety Alert Seat is a directional warning system that will vibrate one or both front seats to indicate the physical direction of a potential crash and increasing driver response time.

The Rear Seat Reminder feature prompts the driver to check the rear seat before exiting the vehicle if the rear doors have been opened/closed. Sometimes the most precious things are those that ride in the back. We all get distracted from time to time. Enjoy some extra peace of mind with this assistance feature.

Driving Monitoring

The Teen Driver feature is a great resource for teaching new drivers. This tool allows you to switch off select driver assistance features and activate certain safety features in order to instill good driving habits in your new driver and optimize learner safety. The Teen Driver feature also provides feedback on your new driver’s progress with in-vehicle report cards.

Finally, the Vehicle Diagnostics feature will provide regular reports on your vehicle’s overall health and changing needs.
