What is the Lexus blind spot monitor?

I’ve always wanted to own a Lexus and I finally have enough cash for a down payment. But before I buy, I want to make sure the car is safe enough for my family. What is the blind spot monitor on Lexus vehicles?

Whether you go with the roomy
Lexus GX 460
or one of the company’s other models, you’ll always get the Lexus Safety System+. This comes with the Lexus blind spot monitor, which is a system of radars that detects and warns you of any vehicles currently in or approaching your blind spot.
With this and a host of other advanced safety features, it should come as no surprise that almost every Lexus model gets a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A few models also get Top Safety Pick ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, further solidifying the brand as one of the safest on the road.
If you decide to buy a Lexus, don’t turn a blind eye to car insurance prices. Since you need car insurance to legally drive, you should shop around on the
app to get the best rate possible.
