Have you seen the latest Nissan Skyline that's recently launched in Japan with GT-R Styling cues and ProPilot 2.0 driver assist? See how you can distinguish it with the GT-R version!
Many of you Naijauto readers, as well as many other auto enthusiasts, would agree that the current version of the Infiniti Q50 popularly known as the Nissan Skyline in Japan, does not really evoke images of a 2020 Nissan GT-R in one’s mind. True or false?
Nissan seems to have noticed this and has now decided to change all of that with its latest version of the Skyline that it just released.
The newly launched Nissan Skyline with true ProPilot 2.0 is so tempting, isn’t it?
If you look closely at this new Skyline model, you will notice the changes made to the rear and front of the new model. The front-end of the newly launched Skyline seems to have undergone a complete overhaul as its fascia now looks very similar to the one on the Nissan GT-R. One might argue that the proportion differs but not when it comes to shaping. Nissan also claims that it will bring back the 4-circle taillights that usually comes with the older Skyline models.

Can you spot the similarities between the 2020 Nissan GT-R and this new Nissan Skyline?
One of the most notable features that Nissan showcased with this new Skyline model is its 2nd generation ProPilot Assist dubbed “ProPilot 2.0”. It gets really exciting as this feature now finally comes with a true “hands-off highway driving” capabilities when a driver is cruising on a single lane road. This ProPilot 2.0 uses an advanced driver monitoring system to continuously check and confirm if a driver’s attention is still on the road in real-time.
The ProPilot 2.0 can decide when to automatically drive pass a slower moving car
For this new ProPilot 2.0 feature to work successfully, a driver will need to manually use the vehicle’s navigation system to set a preferred destination. Once that is done, the vehicle will then use different sensors together with the navigation system to judge by itself, the right times it should drive pass any slower-moving car. Once it makes this decision, it will alert the driver via visual and audio guidance to place his/her hands on the vehicle’s wheel, after which the driver can confirm this pass with a single switch.

Flipping this switch by the driver makes the car to automatically manage its own movement by itself for as long as it can still detect the driver’s hands on the vehicle wheel. Nissan claims that if at any point, a driver isn’t responding to the ProPilot 2.0’s alert, the new Nissan Skyline will by itself put on the flashers and slow down till it halts.
