I had these features on a Mazda 6 and my Kia Stinger GT. Worked about the same as those 2, so I am used to them.

Nice... I've a CX-5 as a rental right now, and it works pretty well.

The basic blind spot monitoring on a 2018 Macan I drove was essentially worthless.

Since I'm not interested in the autonomy features of the 2020, the 2019 might be the way to go...

2018 Stelvio's blind spot monitoring and cross path work great. Don't have collision warning. Only thing I noticed is the blind spot warning light turns off as soon as you clear the car and not by much. Our Durango stays on for almost 2 car lengths. I am assume AR feels you will accelerate into the lane change. 😀 Also, the Stelvio's system is silent. Light is the warning. Flashing light when you turn on directional signal. Most other systems will have a audio warning when you put on the signal. This may have been updated in 2019.

I'm just going to quote OhioF1 because that's exactly what I was going to type.

You can turn on the rather loud beeping for the blind spot warning in the Settings -> Safety menu. I think the factory default is silent though.

The cross-path warning has saved me a few times and I'm always surprised at how well it works. Collision warning also works pretty well but I haven't had the auto braking kick in.

I 've had the Auto brake slam on and then it let off once the oncoming car got out of my lane... worked very quick both on a off. Startling. You need to be wearing seat belts, lets leave it at that.

My May 2018 build with v85 has the triangle and 5 warning beeps and the emergency braking does work
