With car technology improving every year, 2018 releases are expected to have some note-worthy features.
If you’re considering purchasing a 2018 car, consider what new features might appeal to you before you start shopping.
If you live in a city where parking is limited, you probably struggle to run errands with minimal frustration. However, many 2018 releases are coming equipped with parking technology to make parking easier. Although current models often have cameras that assist with parking, 2018 BMW models are offering a bit more. BMW models are working with “Parkmobile,” a smartphone application that will help drivers locate open parking spots based on the car’s GPS location.
If you spend a lot of time in your car, you probably spend a lot of time listening to your music. Many people dislike how digital music sounds after being downloaded onto a smartphone and played through a car speaker. Many manufacturers have tried to improve the sound and quality of music when driving, and two 2018 models have found a solution. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT and the Kia Stinger are now using the “Clari-Fi System” which coverts digital audio to a high-quality, clear digital sound.
If you have recently taken a family vacation, you probably appreciate the convenience of streaming a DVD to keep children occupied. Many cars now come with Wi-Fi hot spots that allow passengers to connect to the internet on tablets and phones. However, the 2018 Lincoln Navigator has technology that will allow passengers to stream live TV. Using a dual-screen rear entertainment system, the car can use a Slingbox streaming device to access live television while driving.
If you love a car that makes a bit of noise but you don’t love disturbing your neighbors when you start it up at odd hours, a 2018 Ford Mustang might be your next car. Many high-performance cars make noise which is what people love about them. However, the noise can be frustrating if you’re driving late at night in a quiet neighborhood. Ford has created a “Quiet Mode” which will help muffle sounds only when the driver sees fit.
