No blind spots for Vauxhall’s new Combo, with surround vision system
Vauxhall has announced the brand-new Surround Rear Vision camera system for the Combo Cargo.
It improves visibility to the rear and in the passenger-side blind spot, helping drivers to safely turn and manoeuvre the van.
The powerful system improves safety for the driver, passengers and other road users.
The system is the “perfect partner” in dense urban traffic, providing all-round visibility.
The technology is particularly useful in preventing potential accidents with cyclists and pedestrians when turning left.
By default, it also provides a new security feature, by combining two cameras that provide a range of views to the rear and to the side.
The first camera is mounted above the rear doors, overlooking the area behind the vehicle.
When reversing and parking, its display is shown on a dedicated five-inch screen.
The driver can also switch between a close and a wider rear view.
The wider rear view can also be shown when driving forwards, displaying a distance of 4-30m behind the Combo Cargo.
The second camera is under the passenger-side mirror of the Combo Cargo and shows the passenger view towards the rear.
By switching to the display via the touchscreen, the driver can see whether cyclists or pedestrians are in what would normally be the blind spot.
This allows the driver to safely turn left or the side of the vehicle is clear, preventing a potential accident.
This new feature is part of the Parking Pack.
It also consists of front and rear parking distance sensors, power-folding door mirrors, front fog lights and ultrasonic side sensors.
The parking pack, including the Surround Rear Vision camera, is from £6,66.67 +VAT.
