Top Safety Tech for a Low Price

Once exclusive to the industry’s most expensive vehicles, driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control (ACC) have trickled down to the point of standard issuance on some of the most affordable cars for sale. In a market where safety is often a central selling point, manufacturers must boost the availability of the best safety features to maintain a competitive edge. As such, buyers on a budget now have a rich selection of affordable cars to choose from that either come standard with or offer ACC as an option.

Adaptive cruise control builds on the basic cruise control technology that has been around for decades, by using sensors and modern computing to modulate your car’s speed while accounting for the speed of the car ahead of you. While you still set a speed as normal, your car can slow down and speed up to maintain distance between you and that car. Some systems can even slow your car to a stop and get you moving again – a feature that’s highly appealing to drivers who spend a lot of time in bumper-to-bumper traffic on congested highways.

To highlight the spread of this innovative tech, we’ve compiled a list of 23 cars and suvs that cost less than $25,000 when equipped with adaptive cruise control. We’ll spell out which trim or options package you need to choose to equip your new car with this feature, and how much you’ll need to pay.
