The latest recalls cover seven vehicles, including the Chevrolet Malibu from 1997 to 2005 and the Pontiac Grand Prix from 2004 to 2008. The recalls also cover a newer model, the 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS. GM said the recalls are for “unintended ignition key rotation.” (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)

DETROIT, Mich. (—Cadillac will debut high-resolution video streaming in the rearview mirror, to expand visibility for drivers. It will be available next year on the CT6 flagship sedan.

General Motors Co. said the streaming mirror improves field of vision about four times that of a traditional rearview mirror. The technology — under development since 2011 and believed to be a first in an automaker application — will remove obstructions in a driver’s field of vision, including rear seat passengers, headrests, the roof and rear pillars.

“The closest comparison to this kind of rear vision would be driving a convertible with the top down,” Travis Hester, Cadillac CT6 executive chief engineer, said in a statement.
