The all-new Opel Grandland X will make its premiere at the 67th International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt (September 14-24, 2017) and be at dealerships shortly thereafter.
The Grandland X has a first-class portfolio of ultra-modern assistance features. Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking and pedestrian detection, Advanced Park Assist and the 360° Camera – all standard with Innovation trim – are just some highlights. Systems such as Automatic Cruise Control with stop function, which maintains the selected speed and distance to the vehicle ahead and brakes or accelerates the Grandland X when required, increase safety even further.
There is another highlight – a very caring assistance system called Driver Drowsiness Alert.
In Germany, a study of motorways showed that drivers who fell asleep were responsible for one in four of fatal car accidents (according to the ADAC). Systems that are designed to recognise the signs of fatigue and advise the driver to take a break are commonly found in premium-class automobiles. Opel is now bringing such safety benefits to a wider audience with the new Grandland X, the exciting new compact sports utility vehicle.
Driver Drowsiness Alert on the Grandland X triggers a warning if the trajectory of the vehicle suggests driver fatigue or inattention, issuing a message in the driver information cluster and an acoustic signal. After three warnings at the first level, the system issues a second alert with a different message in the driver instrument cluster and a louder acoustic signal. The system is reset by driving at speeds below 65km/h for 15 consecutive minutes.
In addition to Driver Drowsiness Alert, the Opel Grandland X also offers other first-class assistance and safety systems. For instance, the vehicle also delivers optimum night-time visibility without dazzling others, thanks to the optional AFL LED headlamps which produce a bright white light that effectively turns night into day and automatically adapt to the driving situation.
Further peace of mind for Grandland X drivers is available from Opel OnStar. In addition to offering services such as Stolen Vehicle Assistance or a Wi-Fi Hotspot for outstanding connectivity, the personal connectivity and service assistant can help tired drivers find a carpark or book a hotel room. If an emergency should occur, the “guardian angel” automatically responds to crashes, connecting vehicle occupants to a helpful advisor, not a machine.
