Nissan has released its Vision range in Europe, made up of models that feature the company’s Around View Monitor (AVM) system and other safety technologies.
The Nissan Vision range includes the Qashqai, Juke and X-Trail crossovers, as well as the Pulsar hatchback. These come with the AVM system that incorporates four cameras on the outside of the vehicle to display a virtual overhead view of its surroundings on the NissanConnect dashboard screen.
Lane departure warning, moving object detection, emergency forward braking, blind spot warning, high beam assist, and traffic sign recognition systems also all come standard on the Vision models. These are features you might expect to find on luxury automobiles, but the N-Vision models are based on Nissan’s mass-market vehicles in their mid-level N-Connecta trim that otherwise come with roof rails, upholstery part in leather, part Alcantara, but not the full options packages with which these safety systems are often bundled.
Commenting on the virtual overhead view, Nissan stated, “AVM is part of Nissan’s desire to remove the stress and difficulty from modern-day driving by giving drivers the confidence to manage manoeuvres more easily.”
