Rearview camera standard on all 2015 Buick models

14 May 2014

Every 2015 Buick model will come standard with a rearview camera. In the fall of 2013 the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) conducted a study which found that vehicles with rear backup cameras have a significantly reduced rate of backing crashes based on its analysis of crash data. 97% of the backing crashes in this study involved striking another vehicle, which corresponds with US crash data analyses.

Rear backup cameras have become like power windows and air conditioning. While they’re not standard on every car, yet, it’s rare to operate a new vehicle without them. The increased confidence these cameras provide make them a must-have feature.

—Karl Brauer, senior analyst for Kelley Blue Book

To help prevent a collision, each of Buick’s 2015 models are also available with active safety technologies such as Forward Collision Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Every Buick also comes with OnStar Automatic Crash Response, standard for six months. In a collision, a specially trained Emergency Advisor is connected to the vehicle the moment a crash is detected. If the driver requests help, or can’t answer, emergency responders are sent to the precise GPS location.

The 2015 Buick lineup—including Verano, LaCrosse, Enclave, Encore with all-wheel drive, and Regal (without optional rear seat-mounted side-impact air bags)— has a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety in the New Car Assessment Program run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
