We’d all like to have a warning before something bad happens to us. That is certainly true in our personal lives and in our careers. It is equally true when we get behind the wheels of our cars. They say "forewarned is forearmed," and when you are driving, that can be the difference between life and death.
The good news is that these days our cars can be equipped with technology that will warn us of imminent danger — things like a potential collision with another vehicle or object that is in front of us. Collisions like that are very common, so carmakers have begun to offer what are typically called forward-collision warnings on a wide variety of their vehicles, including some of the most inexpensive available in the United States. On many vehicles, the forward-collision warning is not standard equipment but is available as part of an up-level trim level and/or optional package. Here are the least expensive cars that have a forward-collision warning.
