Among your choices are the Ford Fusion, Toyota Avalon, Prius and Prius v, and the Volvo S60, all of which are available with adaptive cruise control and collision warning systems that apply the brakes when sensors detect an impending collision.


This is not a comprehensive list, but we doubt there are many others that offer both those features and cost less than $40,000. In some of the examples mentioned above, adaptive cruise control and precollision warning systems are optional and available only on higher-priced versions, so the bottom line might top $40,000.
