Original Towing Mirrors:
Very large top mirror 1:1 ratio. This large, flat mirror provides a narrower field of view, reflecting true distance for reversing. It provides an exact reflection of what’s happening behind you.
Smaller bottom mirror. This slightly curved mirror makes objects appear closer than they are. The convex mirror reduces the objects that it reflects, allowing the driver to have a much wider field view and diminishing blind spots. This mirror provides a better understanding of what’s happening around the vehicle.
What Are Clear View Towing Mirrors?
Vehicles nowadays include an advanced level of technology which is often incorporated into their side mirrors. These features can include Outside Air Temperature (OAT) Sensors, GPS, AM-FM, Blindspot Monitoring Systems and 360-degree Cameras.
Clearview Accessories has been manufacturing Towing Mirrors since 2009 and has experienced the rapid advancement of technology first-hand.
Customers don’t want to compromise on their vehicle’s features when they install towing mirrors, and it’s for this reason that we’ve remained at the forefront of emerging mirror technologies.
Clear View have long-standing relationships with the vehicle manufacturers and work closely with them to develop OE Authorised Towing Mirrors. This becomes more important as technology advances and unapproved mirrors can result in fault codes and loss of functionality, such as driver assist functions.
Clearview Mirrors are substantially larger than your standard side mirror. In standard driving position, Clearview Mirrors have a wider outwards reach of approximately 100mm; a total surface area much bigger than the standard models.
When you’re ready to tow, Clearview Mirrors slide out an additional 100mm! An additional extension that allows for around a total 200mm of extension over standard side mirrors.
