Adaptive cruise control is one of the most useful of all the electronic driver aids you can get for your car. If your regular schedule puts you in a lot of slow-moving traffic on a freeway or expressway, you will appreciate the labor-saving adaptive cruise control offers.
Through computer wizardry, it enables you as the driver to set a maximum speed for your car, which will then automatically slow down to maintain a set interval between it and the vehicle ahead. More advanced adaptive cruise control systems will bring your car to a complete stop when traffic warrants, but even a less sophisticated adaptive cruise control that requires the driver to bring the car to a complete stop can result in much less driver’s fatigue. Once the province of luxury cars, these systems are now readily available on many low-priced vehicles. Here are the least expensive cars with adaptive cruise control.
