The new Nissan Qashqai - advanced driver assistance system ProPILOT
The new Qashqai is equipped with the next generation of the assistance system ProPILOT. It is called "ProPILOT with Navi-Link" and offers even more driver support - in more situations than before. The system reduces fatigue and stress on the driver and is also intuitive to use. ProPILOT with Navi-Link can accelerate and decelerate the vehicle to a set speed within a lane on motorways. In heavy stop-and-go traffic, the vehicle is braked to a standstill if necessary. If the Qashqai stands still for less than three seconds and the vehicles in front start moving, it automatically starts moving again. The steering system and camera continuously record the vehicle's position and keep it within the lane. The preset speed is maintained, but also a safe distance from the vehicle in front. In the new Nissan Qashqai, the system is now able to adapt the speed to additional external circumstances, such as a temporary speed limit that is determined using traffic sign recognition and data from the navigation system. In such a case, the system will automatically decelerate the Qashqai and accelerate it back to the previous speed as soon as the limitation is lifted
