BHPian shamanth recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Took a 100 + 100 km night drive a couple of days back on Bangalore-Hassan Road with my new Seltos with ADAS. It was a rainy day but ADAS performed to perfection.
Enabled Adaptive cruise control, smooth take-off and smooth braking, unlike the VW T-Cross and Audi Q3 which I had driven in Europe, where it used to take off suddenly, sometimes even burning the rubber.
Enabled Lane Assist, did feel awkward when the steering started turning as corners, but quickly got adjusted and started to feel confident seeing how neatly it drives in the centre of the lane. It does warn to keep a hand on steering even if you lift one hand.
Braking distance I had kept it as 2 cars as I was driving below 100 km/h, 2 cars are comfortable braking distance for India I guess, if you keep 4 cars, it breaks too early and the possibility of someone rear-ending can happen.
Have disabled the forward collision and side take-off feature of ADAS, as we in India drive so closely it will press the emergency brake and could result in undesired consequences.
Reverse collision assists I have enabled, which is very useful, especially when taking reverse in blind spots. Have helped me once when a silent fast-moving EV scooter passed and emergency braking kicked in, though was not visible in 360-degree cameras, I guess radar picked it up.
Overall very satisfied with the ADAS in Seltos, I can confidently start using it on highways and expressways. And the road I drove has 100% lane marked, so it helped I guess.
