5 semi-autonomous cars took a road test and barely passed


Don’t start planning for your self-driving commute anytime soon. Human drivers are still very necessary, as a recent road test for five cars’ driver-assistance features showed.

The vehicles were the 2017 BMW 5-series with “Driving Assistant Plus,” the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class with “Drive Pilot,” the 2018 Tesla Model 3 and 2016 Model S with “Autopilot” (software versions 8.1 and 7.1, respectively), and the 2018 Volvo S90 with “Pilot Assist.” They were put through their paces as part of an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, road test.
