Last year, Cadillac debuted an innovative rearview mirror that had the rest of the industry scrambling. The Cadillac Rear Camera Mirror, which debuted on the brand’s CT6 sedan and XT5 crossover, streams video from a high-definition camera to the rearview mirror, displaying the image across the mirror itself, rather than on a dashboard display. This technology is so ground-breaking, that it was named the “Best of What’s New” by Popular Science last year.
There are still some people that hesitate to use this technology, though. If you’re wondering if you should add this rearview camera to your next Cadillac, here are a few Cadillac Rearview Mirror benefits that are sure to make your decision easy.
Expands rearward vision. The streaming video mirror is able to expand your rearward field of vision by an estimated 300%. It’s as if you place four standard rearview mirrors next to each other. This expanded rearward vision will help you feel safer out on the road.
Stays clean no matter the driving conditions. Even if it’s raining, the camera will stay clear. It has a water-shedding hydrophobic coating to keep it clear to provide you pristine visibility no matter what.
Reduces glare. Using a regular rearview mirror makes you susceptible to the glare of other vehicles’ headlights. The camera’s feed reduces glare, allowing a crisp image in low-light situations without hurting your eyes.
