A good car is not just a luxury these days, it’s a necessary part of life. With so many brand new car designs, you tend to become overwhelmed by the sheer numbers and the hype alone. What kind of features and options are most important to you? The following are some of the latest car features you should look into before you purchase a new car:
Cruise control (adaptive). Choose a vehicle that makes use of radar in detecting other vehicles ahead. If the car senses danger or an obstacle, it automatically applies the brakes. This is very useful when there is low road visibility. Take note that laser-based car systems can be confused by rain or snow.
Steering column (adjustable). Modern cars have adjustable steering columns. They allow drivers (especially the tall or short ones) to find the ideal position when they are behind the steering wheel. This feature can have a memory feature. The scope capability enables the driver to make adjustments (up and down, front and back).
Climate control (automatic). This is very useful in extreme environments. The automatic climate control reduces noise, fogging of windows, and stress in intense heat. This feature has variable temperature settings. It may also provide separate adjuster for the A/C in the second and third rows of the car. Be prepared to pay a hefty amount for this feature.
Locking system (central). The central locking system locks the car doors automatically even when its transmission is in gear. It also unlocks the car automatically when the transmission is in park. You can use a key-fob transmitter in unlocking and locking the car from outside the vehicle. If you feel threatened, you can lock your car quickly. Be prepared to set aside funds for maintenance or replacements.
The right car for you is out there. Do your homework and you’ll end up with exactly the model and price that you want.
