Mature Drivers has recognised Blind Spot Warning systems with the highest ranking in its list of 10 new vehicle features.

According to the Top Technologies for Mature Drivers, this technology will make mature drivers feel safe when they drive.

Jodi Olshevski, gerontologist and executive director of The Hartford Center for Mature Market Excellence, said, 'As part of our recent research focus on mature drivers and technology, we wanted to understand what new features mature drivers themselves want in their vehicles. The research suggests that mature drivers value technology that assists with changing lanes and parking. This is encouraging, and consistent with our previous research in which mature drivers identified turning their head to see blind spots as a challenging aspect of driving. It also supports our understanding of changes in flexibility and range of motion that can occur as we age.'
