New 300S: 3 Safety Features For On-The-Road Protection

The New 300S: 3 Safety Features That Protect You And Your Passengers

When it comes to driving the new 300S, performance and comfort usually receive most of the attention. Although both are important, they're merely two sides of a complex, multifaceted design. Your safety is just as important as what you'll find under the bonnet or in the passenger compartment. 

Being on the road comes with considerable risk. Even if you're a safe driver, other motorists' decisions can expose you and your passengers to harm. A single collision can set the stage for serious, lasting injuries, or worse. 

That’s the reason the 300S has been filled with advanced safety features. The following 3 features are designed to offer superior protection for you and your family.

Blind Spot Monitoring System To Prevent Collisions

Because our eyes face forward, we don't enjoy the benefits of a panoramic view. We suffer from blind spots in our visual field. 
Those blind spots seldom present a problem when we're walking or standing in place. But driving is a different story. Being unable to see autos on the left and right sides of our vehicles can have tragic results. That's the reason cars have side-view and rear-view mirrors: the mirrors improve our ability to observe the areas that are in our natural blind spots. They prevent us from moving into those areas when they're occupied.

The new 300S is outfitted with a blind spot monitoring system that continuously keeps tabs on the space surrounding your vehicle. The system alerts you in the event you move your auto toward a space occupied by another motorist.

Adaptive Cruise Control To Minimise Human Error 

If you've ever embarked on a road trip, you've experienced firsthand the mind-numbing nature of driving long stretches. The monotony can lull you into a trance, making you less alert. More than one driver has collided with the car in front of him due to a lapse of attention.

Adaptive cruise control uses radar technology to monitor the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. If you get too close, the system eases up on the throttle to slow your vehicle. Doing so minimises the likelihood of a collision.

Reactive Headrests To Lower The Risk Of Whiplash

One of the most common injuries that result from rear-end collisions is whiplash. Upon impact, the occupant's head snaps backward. The motion exerts sudden force on the neck, extending the cervical vertebrae. Although the head's path is eventually stopped by the car's head restraint, whiplash can result, causing neck pain and stiffness for weeks.

Reactive headrests mitigate that problem by immediately shifting upward and forward during a rear-end collision. They reduce the distance travelled by the occupant's head and lessen the likelihood of whiplash.

The new 300S by Chrysler is equipped with all 3 of the above safety features. You can enjoy the vehicle's impressive power and torque with peace of mind that its advanced technology will help protect you and your passengers from harm.
