Ford Transit B - aftermarket lane assist?

I have fallen in love with the new Coachman Crossfit on the Ford Transit diesel. My husband wants to get a Mercedes class B instead due to the safety features of collision avoidance and lane assist. I am wondering if we could find aftermarket products that would do the same on the Ford Transit. Thoughts?

I'm sure this unit will work on the Ford Transit. Collision Avoidance System | Lane Departure Warning | Safe Drive Systems

It gives many features you ask about. I'm not sure exactly what the MB Sprinter has, some MB models close windows and tighten seat belts, adjust headrests just before a collision. My Subaru applies the brakes, too when closing on an object in front.

So your husband like's the Nanny features? I don't know but I'm old school I guess. I have the features mentioned and I could care less. I don't text and drive so wondering is not an issue for me. My coach came with those "safety" features. But if I had to pay extra for them I definitely would not have checked the option box. I have a 2013 MB E-350, if I open my door while backing up to see behind me the car pops out of gear. Apparently it thinks I'm drunk and I'm going to fall out and run over myself (Darwin at work. I miss simple non-intrusive electronics.

I like the layout, the large bed in back, the quality of the cabinets and the short length. Also like that it comes with solar as standard. Only thing I don't like is the dark colors as we live in az and am concerned about it cooling off in summer. Only comes in dark blue and dark grey. Oh and like the price, lower than the Mercedes.

I'm kind of with you on this . If I want to switch lanes , I look in the mirrors . If nothings there , I go . I don't need a light or chime to tell me if there's something there
