With the UK government aiming to have self driving cars on the roads by 2022, here’s a look at 10 of the most promising contenders.
The Audi A8 is a luxury sedan and the first car to have Level 3 autonomy in Europe. It has a top speed of 130 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 5.4 seconds, which makes it quick enough for most people to enjoy driving it most of the time.
The interior is spacious with lots of room for passengers, especially in the back seat where there’s plenty of legroom as well as storage space under each front seat that can hold items up to 22 inches long by 10 inches wide. The trunk is also large enough to fit luggage if you need to take more than one bag with you on your trip
In terms of safety features, this car comes with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) like adaptive cruise control (ACC), lane keep assist system (LKAS), front collision warning system (FCWS) and rear cross traffic alert system (RCTA).
The Tesla Model S is a five-door luxury liftback car. It was introduced to the public in 2012 as a pure electric sedan with a range of up to 500 miles (800 km). The base model starts at $71,000 (£58,200) and can be configured with several options including:
The Volvo XC90 is a plug-in hybrid car with self-driving capabilities. It has a range of 400 km and a fuel consumption of 3,2l/100km. It has four separate drive modes, which are:
You’re probably wondering what the Mercedes-Benz E-class has to do with self driving cars. Well, it turns out that a lot of driverless vehicles are actually pretty similar to what we already have on the road. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is an example of this; it’s not exactly a self driving car, but it does have some autonomous capabilities.
It’s also one of the best cars in its class and has been for years—and I think it deserves to be named one of the top ten self driving cars in Britain.
The Jaguar XF is a luxury saloon car. It’s available both in diesel and petrol variants, and features a 0-60 mph time of 5.4 seconds. The car is available in 2 wheel drive, 4 wheel drive and all wheel drive configurations.
Like the Kona and Hyundai Kona Electric, the Nissan Leaf is a fully electric vehicle. As such, it’s been engineered to provide the kind of performance you’d expect from an EV and not just a regular family hatchback.
The exterior of the Leaf features some striking styling details that help it stand out from its competitors. The LED headlights are positioned on top of slim LED daytime running lights, giving them an aerodynamic appearance in profile view as well as front-on views. The rear end is also distinctive – there’s no conventional bootlid here, instead it has two lines at either side which meet at the top before flowing down over each wheel arch and into a chrome trim strip towards its lower edge (a design feature shared with other Nissans).
The Tesla Model 3 is a car that you will love to drive. It has a long range, and because of the dual motors, it can get up to speed fast. It also features autopilot, which allows you to do things like auto-parking and lane changes by simply setting a location on your navigation system. You can even parallel park in tight spaces with ease!

Peugeot is one of the world’s leading car manufacturers, and their latest self-driving models are being tested in more than a dozen countries. The French company has been developing autonomous cars since 2015, and they plan to bring them to market by 2022.
The Peugeot 508 uses five cameras, six radars and two laser scanners to scan the road ahead. It then uses this information to determine its position on the road as well as obstacles around it—all without any human help!
Toyota Corolla Hatchback (new): The Toyota Corolla is the most popular car in the UK, and for good reason. It’s a hybrid, with a petrol engine; it has a range of over 500 miles; and its top speed is 137 mph. It’s also got a price tag of £19K.

You may be asking yourself, “Which car is the best?” That depends on what you are looking for in a self driving car. Some people want something that can get them from point A to B with minimal interaction while others have more specific needs such as acceleration or fuel efficiency. I hope this list has helped you decide which vehicle suits your needs most closely so you can purchase accordingly.
