At least with QtCreator 4.0 beta most issues are resolved for me.
What exactly do you mean by "smart"?

Nothing stunning there. Mostly the same as Ctrl-K (you see more options the 
poping up). Some are Ctrl-Tab, Ctrl-Shift-I, Ctrl-Shift-T.

Is there something like Alt-Left for CLion?

I like QtCreator because it doesn't come with a bloated UI (in constrast to 
Visual Studio).
The UI is very lightweight. Close to a simple editor. But as soon as you know 
some shortcuts, it gets extremely powerful.
Maybe you should have a look at https://www.kdab.com/qtcreator

And again - which technology or trends do you think QtCreator is _eons_
