2023 CT5-V Blackwing Key Safety Features

The CT5-V Blackwing comes with a decent number of safety features as standard, whether you opt for the manual or automatic. It has traction, stability and chassis management, eight airbags including dual front knee airbags, powerful Brembo brakes with ABS, and a surround-view camera system including the obligatory rearview camera. Driver-assistance features include forward collision warning with automatic braking up to 50 mph, front and rear park assist, lane-keep assist with lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic assist. The automatic gearbox allows for more autonomy, which means that adaptive cruise control, enhanced automatic emergency braking, and reverse automatic braking are added by default. Automatic parking assistance is an option that's limited to the automatic model.
