In a series of tests to determine which car manufacturer has the best Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), a Chinese automotive publication gave the Tesla Model 3 top marks.
A total of eleven different cars were tested by 42HOW, including a Model 3 equipped with HW3.0 and Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) software.
Tested across 8 categories, the Model scored a total of 283 points out of a possible 332 points, well ahead of the BMW X5 in second place with 208 points.
In achieving first place, the Model 3 scored the highest in 6 of the 8 categories. For automatic parking Tesla placed 7th with 18 out of a possible 25 points. For driving on a congested road the Model 3 placed 4th with 44 out of a possible 62 points.
While placing fourth for driving on a congested road is a little surprising, placing 7th for automatic parking is not. If you were to ask any Tesla owner with the Autopark feature, almost every one (including myself) would say the feature needs improving.
The results of these tests are a little different than those given by Consumer Reports last month. In their test, the publication said Tesla was a “distant second” to General Motors’ Super Cruise technology. The main reason cited was due to GM’s driver-facing infrared camera that monitors driver attention.
