Nissan aims to protect drivers and pedestrians

Nissan has unveiled a rather interesting looking small car called the Note. All the cars new, Nissan is taking the time to talk more about the technology inside the car than the vehicle itself. The Note will be the first Nissan to use the company's new Safety Shield technology and Around You Monitor.

The system uses four cameras located on each side of the vehicle and an LCD display on the dash to show a view of what's going on all around the car. The idea is that having the screen will help drivers avoid pedestrians and other automobiles.

The Note also has a number of other technologies that make up Safety Shield including blind spot warning, lane departure warning, and moving object detection. All this technology helps drivers beware of other vehicles even if they can't see them physically. There's no indication of when the No will launch or if it will be coming to the United States.

Watch Sebastian Vettel Tackle the Eau Rouge Corner with Infiniti’s Eau Rouge Concept

Aug 21 2014 3:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Pretty much everything about Infiniti’s fully functional Q50 Eau Rouge concept car is worthy of exclamation points. It looks amazing! It has the Nissan GT-R’s twin-turbocharged V-6! Infiniti is probably going to build it! Yet for all the superlatives, the “Eau Rouge” appellation might remain a mystery to some. To clear the air—possibly in advance of a green light for production—Infiniti has released a video to help explain the significance of the moniker. The video thus is set at Spa-Fra ...

Filed under: Minivan/Van, Work, Nissan, Quick Spins "You're a long way from home!" When I signed up to drive a pre-production version of the Nissan NV200 Taxi, I expected to have a higher-than-normal level of interaction with the public at large. However, while I was hoping for unsuspecting Ann Arborites to perhaps hail me down, or maybe even get a hop-in when stopped at an intersection, I didn't really think I'd be hass ...

Lincoln Navigator facelift only has to last until 2016 replacement

Aug 21 2014 10:39am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: SUV, Lincoln, Luxury The Navigator is not only Lincoln's longest-serving nameplate - dating back to 1998 when the final Town Car was introduced - but it's also the oldest model still in the brand's portfolio. The current Navigator arrived on the market in 2007, and underwent a refresh just a few months ago for the 2015 model year. The updates were subtle, but if you're waiting for an all-new model, it's just a couple of years down the r ...
