Top-rated, least expensive cars 🚗 with ADAS
Automobile safety has always been a top priority, and over time, a number of cutting-edge passive and
active technologies have advanced significantly. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS for short,
are such state-of-the-art technologies that use a variety of sensors and cameras to help prevent accidents, lessen casualties, and keep drivers aware of potential hazards. Because of this, the majority of automakers worldwide have begun incorporating ADAS into their cars, particularly mass-market models, to increase the accessibility of this active safety feature for a larger group of buyers.
