Dominick, New York

Too many to list here, though we found several SUVs besides the Edge that offer blind spot monitoring systems, which detect vehicles to the sides and rear and give flashing and/or audible warnings.

Among the SUVs are the Ford Explorer, Acura MDX, Infiniti EX35 and the Volvo XC60, XC70 and XC90. Blind spot monitors also are available on the Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan and Honda Odyssey minivans. Luxury sedans, such as the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Volvo S60 offer them as well, and they can even be found on non-luxury sedans, such as the Mazda6.

In most cases the systems are optional equipment, and in many cases they may be available only on specific models. You could use the Cars.com Vehicle Recommender to create a shopping list of vehicles that fulfill other requirements — such as number of seats, price range, fuel economy and specific convenience features — and investigate models that have blind spot monitors available.

Unfortunately, blind spot warning systems are not one of the search features in the Vehicle Recommender, but it can certainly help you find candidates that meet your other needs.
