Vauxhall has unveiled its new Surround Rear Vision camera system for the Combo Cargo designed to help prevent potential accidents with cyclists and pedestrians when turning left.
The security feature combines 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, and when reversing and parking, its display is shown on a dedicated five-inch screen.
Drivers 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 four to over 30 metres behind the vehicle.
The second camera is located under the passenger-side mirror of the van and shows the passenger view towards the rear. By switching to the display via the touchscreen, the driver can see if cyclists/pedestrians are in what would normally be the blind spot.
This new feature is part of Vauxhall’s Parking Pack that 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 available from £666.67 +VAT.
