Alert, Assist, & Adapt
“Driving” forward still, the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio has also added some more available safety features with notable new technology for fortifying your drive no matter where you find yourself. These alert and assist features are built to work in tandem with your own driving skills and are not meant to be a substitute. Nothing can replace a calm, careful, and attentive human approach to the road.
- Driver Attention Alert
- Active Blind Spot Assist
- Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
- Intelligent Speed Assist & Traffic-Sign Recognition
- Highway & Traffic Jam Assist
Driver Attention Alert
A sophisticated method for keeping you alert and attentive at the wheel. When the system detects changes in your driving pattern that suggest the onset of fatigue, it will alert you with sound and visual cues and advise you to take a break.
Active Blind Spot Assist
The ultimate spotting buddy, this feature will present a visual indication whenever another vehicle enters your blind spot. Never get caught “blind-sided” by a sudden close call again when changing lanes and navigating highways.
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
When in reverse gear, this system keeps an eye on the right and left rear zone of your vehicle to prevent backing collisions. This feature will warn you with visual or audio cues if another vehicle or obstacle enters the zone, prompting you to apply the brakes.
Intelligent Speed Assist & Traffic-Sign Recognition
This smart feature is great for long distance trips or when driving through new regions where the road signage may not look exactly like what you are used to. After a long day, it’s easy to forget yourself and start opening up the engine a little too much on the highway. Maybe you missed the speed limit sign when getting onto an unfamiliar roadway or even entering a new province. The Intelligent Speed Assist and Traffic-Sign Recognition feature is perfect for getting you back on track. Adjust the settings as needed and let this system remind you (with a visual cue) when you have exceeded the set speed limit or missed some essential instructions on-the-go.
Highway & Traffic Jam Assist
Much like the Adaptive Cruise Control, this semi-autonomous system utilizes sensors all over your vehicle to assess the flow of traffic, but for slower, heavier highway driving. The Traffic Jam assist will brake and adjust your vehicle’s speed to match the other vehicles ahead of you. Just keep your hands on the wheel and sit back while your Stelvio does the rest!
