I test drove Tesla but was wondering which car has the best driver assist tech you can buy today?

    Audi prestige model is pretty good too. But I agree that nothing can beat Tesla in terms of tech features.

    Tesla model 3
    Tesla model s
    Tesla model x

    These are the top 3 (in any order based on your need and budget)

    Cadillac. Unfortunately super cruise is only in one relatively undesirable model, and the top trim level at that. It is superior if more limited than autopilot, but much safer as well.

      Safer how?

      It only works on limited access freeways that have been HD mapped. Uses a driver monitoring camera to determine the drivers attention state as opposed to periodic capacitive touch which can be more easily thwarted. There is a defeat device specifically for this, and having to periodically touch the wheel is annoying anyway.

      Not to mention autopilot will literally run you through a stop sign or red light in some edge cases.

      To Tesla’s credit, autopilot will consistently improve but as it currently stands it is definitely worse. Even the lane tracking/centering is, but admittedly the method by which they are performing it is much more difficult and will be more useful in the future most likely

      How’s AP worse? Lane centering tracking works well even in merging lanes. Not that great when there is exit etc though.

      “There is a defeat device specifically for this, and having to periodically touch the wheel is annoying anyway.”

      You’re talking about people misusing the system. Do you think Cruise is safer assuming both are used properly?

      “Not to mention autopilot will literally run you through a stop sign or red light in some edge cases.”

      That makes no sense. AutoPilot is for divided highways, it doesn’t do anything with red lights or stop signs and isn’t meant to be used on roads that have those.

      Yes I would say it is still safer if both are used properly. And you are absolutely correct, I was essentially calling out situations that require the user to be an idiot, but unfortunately that is reality for a large subset of drivers.

      My point being you still CAN use AP on roads that aren’t divided highways—SC won’t allow this

    Tends to hug the left edge if lanes aren’t clearly defined. Super Cruise uses the HD map instead of tracking the lines

      I’ve not experienced it but will pay more attention ...

      I think AP will be improved more quickly and is also available on all Tesla’s. SC is great, but again it’s only on one model which is expensive, and Cadillac does not have a great reputation even though their recent vehicles aren’t bad

      You’re saying Cruise tends to hug the left edge?

      One of the main complaints I’ve heard about AutoPilot is that it fixes itself in the center of the lane, and many people don’t do that when they drive, so they would prefer that it stay to the outside edge. I think staying centered makes sense as the general policy, though.
