Nissan introduced the redesigned Skyline sedan designed for the Japanese market. The main new advanced driver assistance system ProPilot 2.0, which allows you to take your hands off the wheel.
During the facelift the Nissan Skyline has received a standard set of external update: slightly corrected optics and new corporate grille V-Motion. But the main thing is hiding in electronic “stuffing” of the sedan. The latest ProPilot system 2.0 was announced in may 2019. According to representatives of Nissan, the world’s first driver assistance system which allows you to remove your hands from the steering wheel while driving on the highway in the same lane.
The driver need only to set the navigation destination and choose one of the proposed routes. When the car get on the highway, the system will offer to activate a semi-Autonomous control mode. The Nissan is so confident in their system that officially allowed not to keep hands on the wheel while the car is moving on the highway in the lane.
But for lane change will require the intervention of the driver. In addition, ProPilot 2.0 doesn’t work in tunnels where there is no possibility to receive a GPS signal, on highways with two-way traffic, on winding roads, in the areas of toll collection and merging lanes.
ProPilot system 2.0 with interior camera monitors the driver and control his attention. If the driver ceases to monitor the situation, the electronics issues a warning. If the driver does not respond to the signal, the system includes the emergency signal and gradually slows the vehicle to a complete stop.
Buyers will be offered four versions of the Skyline sedan: GT, Type GT P, GT Type SP and 400R. The last one is the most powerful. Like the other three modifications, it is equipped with a 3.0-liter Biturbo “six”, but here it produces 400 BHP (475 Nm) instead of the standard 300 HP.
