The CTS can be packed to the gills with modern driver aid technology. For example, Automatic Parking Assistant uses sonar sensors and the electronic power steering to automatically guide the sedan into a parallel parking spot, while the driver remains in control of the acceleration and braking. Front and Rear Automatic Braking use radar and sonar to sense obstructions at low speeds and automatically apply the brakes, which can keep you from backing over your spouse. Additionally, the rest of the safety tech gang is available as well, including collision alert, lane departure warning, adaptive headlamps, cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring, rear camera, and adaptive cruise, to name a few.
The Safety Alert Seat seems like the most fun safety feature, vibrating the seat to notify the driver of an obstruction in the sedan's blind spot. It buzzes the left cheek for the left blind spot and the right cheek for the right.
