My window sticker says "Active Driving Assistant included". Is this similar to "Lane Keep Assist" with the steering wheel vibration if you are stepping out of your lane?

I'm not getting any warning when backing out on a busy parking lot. Do I need to have ACC in order to get intersection warning?

Also, does the car come with approach control warning (anti-collision) standard so it will stop or slow down the car for you if you are not paying attention and about to rear end the car in front?

We don't have enough information to fully answer your question. No model/model option last 7 digits of your VIN to run a VIN decode to find out any of the aforementioned. Post the last 7 digits of your VIN and we can help you better. :)

Here's a link to the TIS website that give a functional description of the driver assistant system and the various options that are possible. At this moment...only you can answer some of the questions because again...we have no idea how your G32 is optioned:

Your decoded VIN indicates that you have S5ASa which means you should have the options/features below. Didn't want to short change you in case you had the "PLUS" pkg which would include active cruise control (ACC) etc.: :)

S5ASa: Driving Assistant

A range of camera-based driver assistance systems that enhance safety and reduce the risk of potential collisions, at both high and low speeds. Systems included in this option are:
  • Lane Departure Warning for detecting lane markings at speeds above approximately 45 mph. If the car deviates from the lane of travel without the use of indicators, the steering wheel vibrates as an alert. If the indicators are used to signal, the system recognises this as an intentional lane change and the steering wheel will not vibrate.
  • Forward Collision Warning operates at speeds above 10 mph and monitors vehicles ahead and warns the driver by an optical and acoustic alert if their approach could escalate into a rear-end collision. At higher speeds over 30 mph an urgent warning also activates brake preconditioning for maximum force.
  • City Collision Mitigation proactively engages braking automatically for rapid reaction to potential vehicle collisions in driving situations up to 35 mph.
  • Preventive Pedestrian Protection proactively engages braking automatically for rapid reaction to potential collisions with humans and cyclists in urban driving situations up to 35 mph. The identification of pedestrians and cyclists is only active in daylight.
  • Attentiveness Assistant includes audible warning in cabin and visual warning on iDrive when the system detects that the driver is losing concentration based on driving and travel conditions.
The systems within Driving Assistant are not a substitute for the judgement of the driver. The driver should remain in control of the vehicle at all times and these systems are an aid but should not be solely relied upon.​

My car does not have ACC. Does it mean it's not equipped with intersection warning (getting T-boned)? I don't recall hearing the audible alert ever when pulling out or backing up into cross traffic.

That is correct. Based on the G32 ordering have the options you mention in the your quote would need option code S5ATA...which would include "Active Cruise Control Premium with Stop&Go function" and the "Active Driving Assistant Plus pkg. So I would highly recommend doing a "visual" look when pulling or backing out into traffic and not rely on a tech nanny to warn you of impending danger. :)

The S5ATA option pkg includes in addition to the contents of the Active Driving Assistant option S5ASA (which was listed above in post #4):
  • Active Cruise Control w/Stop & Go
  • Active Lane Keeping Assistant w/side collision avoidance
  • Traffic Jam Assistant
  • Evasion Aid
  • Cross-traffic alert front (anti-T-bone option)
