"I really like the blind-spot warning system on the Q7," claims Kiino. "When another car is positioned in either the right or left blind spot, a light on the inner part of the respective sideview-mirror housing lights up, warning you there's a car sitting there." And if you don't notice the light and attempt to change lanes? "Miss the amber illumination and then try to squeeze in front of that Freightliner to your side, and the light will flash at you three times, alerting you that perhaps you should stay in your lane." While the system helps prevent playing blind-spot bumper cars, it also minimizes excessive head-turning: "Now when I go to change lanes in the Q, I first look to see if the light is on; if not, I know it's likely clear, making an unsafe turn-my-head-to-look-out-the-rear-side-window maneuver unnecessary."
