The safety features of a car are just as important as how it performs and how it looks. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio does well in all three areas, but today, Alfa Romeo of Glenbrook would like to provide some key information on this SUV’s safety technology.

When you are in the market for a new car, safety should never be compromised. Alfa Romeo is a manufacturer that delivers high-quality vehicles that emphasize safety. Let’s look at three safety features you’ll love in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV.

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus

This available safety feature makes quick stops in heavy traffic less stressful and could help eliminate fender benders. The rear-end collision is the most common type of car crash according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), accounting for about 35% of crashes every year.

The forward collision warning system uses radar technology to identify if traffic is slowing. In addition to radar, the system also uses cameras to understand how close the car ahead is. Should it determine a collision is imminent, it triggers a visual and audio alert to the driver and pre-fills the brake system for instant response. If brakes aren’t engaged, the braking system is applied and may even bring the vehicle to a complete stop.

Blind Spot Monitoring

You can also choose to outfit your Alfa Romeo Stelvio vehicle with blind spot monitoring. The system uses two sensors to let drivers know when cars are approaching either blind spot. If a car is in your blind spot, you’ll receive a warning in the corresponding mirror, so you don’t make a move to change lanes. It’s like having an extra set of eyes on every drive.

Lane-Departure Warning

Complete your safety package with available lane-departure warning. It’s included in the Driver Assistance Dynamic Plus. If your vehicle begins to deviate from its lane, you’ll receive a warning to correct your driving. It does not engage if the turn signal is on.
