The MDX can be equipped with a blind spot information system (BSI) that assists you when making lane changes.
- If the system detects a vehicle in an adjacent lane in the MDX’s “alert zone” (approximately from the rear half of the MDX to half a car-length back), an indicator will appear on that side’s windshield pillar.
- The pillar light will flash if the driver activates the turn signal in the direction where a vehicle has been detected.
- The blind spot indicators only light up when the MDX is traveling above 20 MPH, so they won’t come on when you’re parking, at stop lights, or in stop-and-go traffic.
- The system also includes a maximum speed difference threshold, so the alert will not activate as you drive past parked cars.
