4. Adaptive Cruise Control

While we love to drive, sometimes it can get a bit tedious, especially when it comes to commuting in heavy traffic. That said, we’re thankful for adaptive cruise control, that matches the speed of the car ahead of you, meaning you only have to worry about steering and singing along to the stereo. These systems relieve the stresses associated with driving home during rush hour. For that, we’re grateful.

Make no mistake though, not all adaptive cruise control systems are created equal. Vehicles that skew to the higher end of luxury offer technology that can stop the car with traffic and start it back up again when the car ahead begins to move, giving the driver even less to think about.
