GM Super Cruise beats Tesla Autopilot again in latest hands-free test

Autopilot is 'a distant second' but ahead of Ford's Co-Pilot 360, says Consumer Reports. In the latest test, conducted this summer on a track and on public roads, the Cadillac scored 69 points out of a possible 100, while the Tesla scored 57. A Lincoln Corsair equipped with Ford's Co-Pilot 360 system, finished third with 52.

ouch... hopefully will get better in the mach e
I agree with the CR assessment. Super Cruise is very good, easily superior to Tesla. Mach-e should have enough of a sensor package to be at least as good as Super Cruise. It's not there yet, but it should be something that can OTA. Of course, GM will not stand still, though. The bar will keep rising.

"The critical difference in the Super Cruise system is a driver-facing infrared camera to make sure he or she is paying attention to the road and is ready to take over manual control when necessary, said Kelly Funkhouser, head of connected and automated vehicle testing at Consumer Reports."

We'll get that next year in an OTA. I suspect Ford will jump ahead in the rankings in 2021.

Just had a brief stop in at another tour location. I didn't see any settings for Blind Spot Assist. 🥺

It would be a good candidate for an OTA addition since all the sensors are there.

So, what exactly is "Blind Spot Information System" then?

BLIS is the indicator light in the side view mirrors and beeping when a car is in your blind spot.

Assist is when it will steer you back to the center of your lane if there's a car in your blind spot.

Yeah, nice article.

I don't know if we get Blind Spot Assist. It's not on the tech specs or vehicle landing page, so I'll assume no.
Yes here it is

Don't forget the Mach-E has Co-Pilot 360 2.0
