Mercedes-Benz E-Class

This popular luxury coupe and sedan was redesigned for 2017, and with that came an array of driverless features. Most impressive and unique in the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class is Drive Pilot. Essentially, the system combines lane-keep assist with adaptive cruise control. It will automatically maintain a safe following distance with the car in front of you, plus steer through gentle bends in the road.


You also enjoy an active lane-change feature. Just flip on the turn signal, and the car will move into the corresponding lane, if no other cars are in it. You don’t have to do anything more, making lane changes incredibly easy.

Nissan Leaf

Not only is the Nissan Leaf a surprisingly affordable electric car, the 2018 model adds quite a few driverless systems. The big one is ProPILOT Assist, a single-lane driver assistance system. Turn it on, and the car will automatically keep a safe distance from the car in front.

This tech also keeps the car centered in its lane, as well as apply the brakes if traffic suddenly slows or stops. Nissan has been experimenting extensively with fully autonomous cars, and it likes to push out the latest advancements through the Leaf, one of the cheapest best self driving cars.

Cadillac CT6

When you think of cutting-edge tech, Cadillac might not be the first brand to jump in your mind. That could change, thanks to the new Super Cruise system in the Cadillac CT6. Cadillac recently demonstrated the tech with a coast-to-coast drive, showing how a caravan of cars works together.


The key to Super Cruise is that cameras and radar sensors combine with data from a Lidar-mapped database. One of the biggest struggles for autonomous cars is accurately pinpointing the vehicle’s location at any given moment. This eliminates that challenge. In addition, a camera mounted to the top of the steering wheel monitors if you as the driver are paying attention. The system also controls vehicle speed and steering angle.

Of course, the CT6 can come with many other autonomous systems, making it competitive in the full size luxury sedan market.
