Since I'm getting a bit older, I'm thinking of getting a car with some driver aids - lane departure, emergency braking, etc. what car maker offers the best suite of such electronics?

Maybe a used Tesla? You can get a new Mercedes for that price.

If a little cheaper is ok then a Subaru is supposed to be very good.

Yeah, talk about budget otherwise we can talk about Tesla or a Mercedes S450.

That Mercedes has Active Distance Assist Distronic, Active Steering Assist, Active Emergency Stop Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, Active Speed Limit Assist, and Route-Based Speed Adaptation where the car anticipates speed reduction based on map data such as bends, junctions, roundabouts, toll booths, and exit ramps.

Other features include Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic function, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Car-to-X communication, and Pre-Safe Plus. The new S-Class also gets trick safety features that first debuted on the E-Class like Pre-Safe Impulse Side, which can inflate the seat bolsters when an imminent side impact is detected to move the occupant up to 2.75 inches away from the crash zone; and Pre-Safe Sound, which omits an interference signal that can help prevent hearing loss in the event of a crash.

Oh there's also the 2017 E300, should be more in the 60-70k range, drive pilot with the Premium 3 package comes with all kinds of tech like Distance Pilot Distronic, Steering Pilot, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Brake Assist, Surround View System among numerous other things. The 2018's are out so maybe you can get a good deal.

Do the Volvo XC60 or XC90 float your boat? They're some of the safest cars you can get. When approaching an obstacle they will brake and, if it's safe to do so, steer around it.

The XC90's small overlap crash test performance is jawdropping.

Volvo has always been known for their safety, so that would be my answer smile

The used Tesla idea might also work, or even a new Model 3

A lot of automakers are including these features as options, but due to the infantcy of the technology, the effectiveness of these aids can vary significantly. Pay close attention to reviewers and do lots of test drives to see what works well for you.

Forward collision with braking and blind spot detection are the only two that really add any value, imo.

Just do like the past generations and buy the biggest sedan you can find.

The rest will work itself out
