For the driver assist to work on an evolve+ do you need to be in cruise control? Will the car center it’s self and other features with out cruise control on?
You have to keep your hands on the wheel. I'm not sure what you mean by "broke down" in this context... If you just want to use old-style cruise control without the smarts, instead of pressing the button to turn it on, hold the button down for a few seconds when turning it on and it will turn on as old style cruise control without the sensors. This is also good in bad winter weather where snow/slush/ice accumulate on the front of the car and block the sensors.Is it sort of Auto pilot driving ? While advanced tech is great, what do we do if it’s malfunctioning or we broke down?
Despite Elon Musk's claims to the contrary there is no such thing right now for regular automobiles as "autopilot" driving or "full self-driving". Even the best systems right now can only handle certain situations and still require your attention on the driving. It doesn't matter whether its ProPilot, FSD, SuperCruise, or what but they are all driving ASSISTS - they don't take the place of the squishy bit of flesh in the driver's seat. Yes, the best systems allow you to take your hands off the wheel depending on the situation but you always have to still be paying attention to intervene properly because even fully functional systems can make mistakes - just look at all the times Teslas have driven into stationary fire trucks and police cars. Yes, the systems made a mistake and didn't recognize the danger but so did the driver because he assumed too much.Is it sort of Auto pilot driving ?

ProPilot is included as standard in all Ariyas regardless of price, you just get the more advanced 2.0 version in the higher models so you're not really paying extra for it. If you're driving mostly in congested city areas I can see why cruise control has limited appeal but here in the wide-open southwest where it's miles and miles of straight highway driving to go from one city to the next cruise control and advanced driver assists are a huge help.@GSX-R35 @atreis
TBH, I never use cruise control, haven't tried and not wanting to. I like to be in control of my speeding, go with the flow, and impulse racing sometimes
So, having such tech in a car may be fun driving at some point, but I won't use it and I don't like to pay for things I don't use, considering I'm keeping the car for 5+ years. My current car is 2015 Forester, not a bad one, nanny beeping me for "lane departure" and brakes for me when I didn't do as it wanted.. I'd like a new one soon.
Tech is good, but whoever uses it doesn't apply common sense, then that's another story..
I still don't understand of those ppl driving Tesla into cop's cars, trucks,... They must be under influence somehow, otherwise, death wish???
