There are some crucial car features to look for when buying a car, such as engine strength, fuel economy, safety features, price etc. However, there are times when those “less important” features make a difference and help you decide which vehicle to choose. Here are some that can make your next ride a bit more interesting.
HIGH TECH SAFETY FEATURESNew-car technology creates a safer, and, let’s be honest, cooler driving experience. Even though it is still considered to be a luxury, it is becoming more and more present in cars nowadays. Wireless smartphone connectivity allows you to use your phone hands-free, making your driving experience safer and more pleasant. There are some interesting collision avoidance technologies such as blind-spot monitoring system where your vehicle uses sensors to check if there are any cars within your blind spot or behind you, and lane departure warning which alerts the driver when leaving the travelling lane. Automotive night vision systems are incorporated into front cameras to increase seeing distance and perception, while cruise control lets you relax by setting your car to a specific speed, making it one of the favourite driver aids.
COMFORT AND PLEASUREFeatures that create a more pleasurable and enjoyable driving experience also make a difference when choosing a car. These may include:
- heated (leather?) seats to make time you spend in your car more comfortable
- a sunroof/moonroof to enjoy those clear skies or
- automatic climate control to avoid constantly adjusting the temperature.
