How much convenience can these four features add? Adaptive cruise control solves that problem you have when a vehicle ahead just can’t seem to keep a constant speed. Rather than having to follow suit, which can be stressful, the system does it for you. Collision mitigation braking is likewise always sensing obstacles ahead, but in this case it’s purpose is to alert you if you’re coming on to an object ahead too quickly and automatically brake to help avoid an accident or at least reduce damage if one is inevitable.

We all have a tendency to get distracted from time to time, which is why the lane keeping assist system is there to help keep you on your path. If the forward-facing camera detects your vehicle is drifting into the other lane, it will gently nudge you back in place. Keep in mind this is not an autonomous driving feature and you do have to keep your hands on the wheel.
