I’ve moved to an area where my commute isn’t so long, but there’s still a lot of stop & go traffic, so I’ve become interested in adaptive cruise control with stop & go abilities.
|I’M A’ FIRIN’ MAH LAZER!|
Stop & go means the adaptive cruise sensors (radar, laser, or cameras) are able to bring the car to a complete stop and resume from a standstill. (As opposed to quit working around 25 mph.) This is a fairly high-end feature normally associated with luxury cars. A couple makes are bringing this second generation adaptive cruise technology down in price, and I wanted to see what the price range is, so here you go:
|Car||Edmunds True Market Value* with Stop & Go Adaptive Cruise and Auto Trans|
|Subaru Legacy Limited||$28,229|
|BMW 328i Sedan||$38,637|
* Only the lowest cost car of each make is listed. No SUVs or crossovers. No non-US cars.
The Subaru Legacy wins on price, and there are quite a few reviews of the Eyesight camera based system it uses at the Subaru Outback forums.
The 2014 Chevy Impala LTZ also has Stop & Go for about $41K. Also, the 2014 Kia Cadenza is coming with Stop & Go for around $40K. (Thanks to Emil for the tip!)
