Cars are getting more advanced with each passing year. There are cars on the market that practically drive for you outfitted with cameras eyeing each angle, approaching vehicles, lanes and obstacles in your path. Car manufacturers, in an effort to woo consumers, keep adding cool stuff to their cars. The sky’s the limit really when it comes to cool features in new cars. Cars.com showcases many of these features in its vehicle reviews and model information. Here are a few bells and whistles that are among the coolest on the market.
Infotainment displays in the front dash are becoming a common feature in vehicles. Most, these days, are touch screen and jump from audio controls to navigation, and other vehicle control modules. Some Infotainment systems are so advanced they provide weather information as you drive, offer status updates on your vehicle health in real time and provide access to your favorite iPhone apps for seamless use.
No more dreading cold mornings with new vehicles that heat practically everything. You can completely minimize your exposure to the cold with a remote start package that you can use from within your warm house to get your car started. Once inside the vehicle, many cars made these days feature heated steering wheels, heated front and side windows, heated seats and other comfort features to keep you warm and toasty on a cold winter morning. Many of those seats are now air conditioned too for equal comfort in the hot, humid months of summer. Some models even offer the option of massage chairs to take the comfort level up another few notches.
With people’s dependence on their mobile devices and access to the Internet, it’s no surprise that many cars now come with the ability to be roaming WiFi hotspots. The systems work with a little help from major phone providers like Verizon and AT&T. You can turn the car hotspot on and off depending on when you need it. The development is sure to help keep you connected and accessible wherever you are.
