You might think self-driving cars are decades away, or even mere science fiction. But many self-driving features are already so prevalent that you can find them on many of America’s least expensive cars.
Today, we’ve rounded up 10 affordable cars with self-driving features for 2021. No, they won’t drive themselves — but all of them have advanced driver-assistance technologies that can shoulder some of the burden and provide superior convenience and safety. All of these 10 cars are available with adaptive cruise control, which maintains a minimum distance from the car in front of you as it slows down and speeds back up; automatic emergency braking, which can autonomously slam the brakes to avoid or mitigate a collision; blind-spot monitoring, which looks over your shoulder to help prevent you from changing lanes into another vehicle; and a lane-departure warning that lets you know if you stray over the line. All but one of these cars also includes lane-keeping assistance, which automatically steers the car back into its lane if you stray over the edge. And all of them cost $25,000 or less. Let’s go over these cars and which features they offer.
