Only just noticed that my Berlingo has auto windscreen wipers, auto headlights and the trip computers all equipped. Along with the air con and modutop i'm amazed that a car of this type and age has all of these toys on it! Smile

You'll be blown away by the latest edition.

Lane guidance - steers you back into the centre between two lanes

City braking - for that odd time some idiot walks out behind a parked car, automatically brakes for you.

Autolights and wipers - full beam lights come on auto on dark roads and turn off when it senses oncoming traffic

Auto speed limit - dead handy through road works, otherwise its not set to auto

Adaptive cruise control on the auto models - keeps a 2 second gap between you and the car in front regardless of speed - not so great when Audi/BMW drivers feel the need to be in your safe braking distance!

Christ knows what other things are available on the car version!
Previous Berlingo: 2015 1.6 L1850 90ps In Artic Steel inc Look Pack and Lighting Pack.

Current Berlingo: K9 2018 Driver M 100ps in Platinum Grey with Safety Pack

The old WV Caddy we had at the office(replaced with a new last fall) also had auto lights.

We made d*mn certain it was never ever set to 'auto'.
The car is uniformed, so if you drove through an undersea tunnel without rear lights, it tended to cause angry comments in the 'dial in' section of the local newspapers.
('Driving lights' usually dipped beam, is mandatory here also during the day, but rear lights are only required during night driving. And tunnels... so you won't notice if it goes from 'daylight' to 'night' mode when you're inside the car)

The Auto lights on the new one aren't really any better.

All of which can make drivers lazy and inattentive. 99.999% of the time they will work and keep you safe, but on that 0.001% of the time that they don't, the driver is then caught unaware, and the resulting crash is much more severe. I would rather have 50 minor bumps caused by human error than the one almighty smash that systems like these cause. The lane guidance one in-particular scares the willies out of me.. there is no way I want the car to be able to steer for me! Again, 99.999999% of the time, no problem, but the 0.000001% of time when the electronics go wrong and it decides to wallop the car over to full lock at motorway speeds? No thanks.
