When looking to buy a car, you need to make sure the car is secure, and if budget is a constraint, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on safety. is an online platform to buy premium cars at affordable prices at online used car auctions.

  1. Daytime Running Lights

    Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are separate lights or the low beam headlights on your vehicle, which are on during the day for better visibility during the day when the visibility is low. A sensor detects the ambient lighting and automatically turns on the DRL for added on-road safety. DRL are the most useful during the dawn to dusk hours when the main headlights are off.

  2. Rearview Camera

    Comprising a number of sensors, a camera at the back of the car, and a display on the dashboard, a rearview camera is one of the key safety features to look when buying a car. The camera allows you to get a clear visual on what’s behind the vehicle and help you avoid bumping into small objects, children, or pets. A reversing camera also offers a more ergonomic way to reverse your vehicle without having to turn back or to your side.

The pretensioner system uses sensors to detect a sudden deceleration of the vehicle and sends an explosive charge to engage a concealed piston. The piston quickly retracts the belt fabric to push the front-seated passengers firmly into their seats to receive maximum protection benefit of the front airbags.
