General Motors Super Cruise Tops Tesla Autopilot in "Consumer Reports" Testing

A General Motors (NYSE: GM) vehicle with the company's Super Cruise technology is the top driver assistance system on the market, according to Consumer Reports, with Tesla's (NASDAQ: TSLA) ballyhooed Autopilot finishing "a distant second." Consumer Reports engineers compared the systems based on features including adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance. The group ranked Super Cruise as the best option, in part because it deploys a small camera facing the driver's eyes to assess whether the driver is paying attention, an important factor as consumers become more comfortable with self-driving features and could pay less attention to the road.
