    Rear Collision Warning 

    This advanced driver assistance system is designed to enhance awareness and response in the event of a potential collision from the rear. With the help of advanced sensors and monitoring technology, the Rear Collision Warning system provides timely alerts to the driver, notifying them of approaching vehicles or obstacles from behind.

    Intelligent Cruise Control 

    Lane Departure Warning, Lane Departure Prevention, and Lane Centering Assist

    The Lane Departure Warning alerts the driver upon detecting an unintentional lane departure. If the driver does not respond to that alert, the Lane Departure Prevention comes into action to prevent unintended lane drift. The Lane Centering Assist assists in keeping the car centred within the lane for enhanced stability during driving.

    Lane Departure Warning

    Traffic Sign Information

    With the help of advanced camera technology, the Traffic Sign Information system interprets road signs such as speed limits, stop signs, and other important information, and displays it in the metre combination.

    Lane Change Assist

    Rear Cross Traffic Alert

    At the time of reversing out from a parking space, this system comes into play. It acts as an extra set of eyes and detects approaching traffic from the side with the help of sensors and alerts the driver.

    Rear Cross Traffic Alert

    Intelligent High Beam Control

    This feature automatically adjusts the car's headlights according to the surrounding traffic. It optimises visibility at night by switching between low and high beams and provides maximum illumination without causing glare to other drivers.

    Intelligent High Beam Control

    Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

    The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System keeps drivers informed about the condition of the car's tyres. It continuously keeps a check on tyre pressure and alerts the driver if any tyre is under-inflated, which not only provides optimal safety but also enhances fuel efficiency and extends the life of the tyres.

    Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

    Apart from the above-mentioned systems, the Proton S70 also comes with other standard safety bits such as an anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control, electronic brake force distribution, auto brake hold, brake assist, hill hold assist, door opening warning, and parking sensors.
