Side Blind Zone Alert

When changing lanes, nobody likes surprises, and the Side Blind Zone Alert1 system on your CTS Coupe helps you avoid them at critical moments. In this high-tech application, radar sweeps both sides of your vehicle, beginning at the outboard mirrors and extending about 16' back and a lane's width on either side. When a vehicle begins to overtake you from behind (or begins to merge into your lane) and enters the radar coverage, an amber light in the outboard mirror alerts you of the potential hazard's presence before you change lanes. It confirms your over-the-shoulder check, especially when you prepare to pass, and helps you move with greater awareness and confidence.

1 Before making a lane change, always check the SBZA display, check the side and inside rear mirrors, look over your shoulder for vehicles and hazards, and start the turn signal.
