WHIPLASH INJURY LESSENING* FRONT SEATBACKS

In the event of a rear-end collision, the Whiplash Injury Lessening front seatbacks are designed to push backward to deflect and absorb energy from a rear-end collision.

RAIN-SENSING INTERMITTENT WINDSHIELD WIPERS

RAIN-SENSING WIPERS

Rain-sensing wipers detect moisture on the glass, then automatically turn on the wipers and continuously adjust their speed. Not only is timing of the wipers automatically adjusted according to rain volume and vehicle speed, but operation can also be fine-tuned to the driver’s preferences. The wiper de-icer saves drivers from exiting the vehicle to free frozen wipers. Using heating elements at the base of the windshield and near the driver’s A-pillar, the de-icer helps keep the wipers free of ice and snow.
