Nissan Rouge Sport Getting ProPilot Assist



Nissanís ProPilot Assist technology was designed specifically as a hands-on driver assist system to help alleviate stop-and-go highway driving stress. Next in line to receive the semi-autonomous driving system is the U.S. spec Rogue Sport and the Qashqai in Canada.

First appearing in the Nissan Serena minivan, it combines Steering Assist and Intelligent Cruise Control to help regulate acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving. Essentially navigating stop-and-go traffic while keeping a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The system was then offered to Leaf EV and Rogue crossover customers. Now itís the Sportís turn to received the update.

Earlier this year, AutoBlog had a chance to test out ProPilot from Detroit to Chicago in a 2018 Nissan Rogue. ďOverall, ProPilot Assist really is a boon for long-haul drives. It all comes down to how it takes care of the minute corrections and adjustments that have to be made on highways.Ē

By no means is the system perfect because human intervention is needed in certain circumstances. Sometimes the vehicle will get a little too close to the markingís edge or the system doesnít adjust enough to safely take a turn. But for straights, drivers will start feeling relaxed enough to the point where the steering wheel no longer registers your hands.

Nissan has some ambitious plans for this system which I can imagine getting far better in a next generation model that could very well top the timeline they have outlined here:

Is the system going to come standard or will it cost an arm and a leg as an additional option? AS nice as the auto cruise control is for stop and go traffic, I wouldn't want to pay too much for it.
