Newest Car Features of 2015
Among the most awaited things regarding 2015 vehicles are its features. These features will enable the driving experience to be much more pleasant and also increase vehicle manufacturer sales numbers. For instance…
…a wireless hotspot similar to the ones used at home or work is an updated feature in all new 2015 General Motors vehicles. All passengers can connect to OnStar’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, with speeds as fast as 12 Mbps, faster than in previous model years.
The Mercedes S550 features the ultimate in safety, with its Driver Assistance Package. This package has PRE-SAFE brake which will apply the brakes in the case of an accident, plus detect pedestrians in the path of the car. In addition its Distronic Plus will act as an extra set of eyes, assisting the steering by detecting the distance between vehicles. BAS Plus assists with the cross traffic in front of the car; Blind Spot Assist speaks for itself.
While pop up or heads up displays are becoming a common feature, the Mazda 3 takes this one step further: A plastic shield rises from the dashboard, showing current speed, the cruise control setting and any safety warnings related to the vehicle’s positioning. All in bright, inviting colors, stowing neatly under the dashboard once the car is turned off.
A really cool feature is that of the 2015 Kia Sedona SX-L. When the driver has the key fob in his or her pocket, the rear lift gate will detect when the driver is approaching it and open automatically. This is known as Smart Power Liftgate, and promises to be revolutionary for Kia.
The 2015 Ford Mustang has a safety feature which could truly save lives: Sync 911. When the driver is involved in a fender bender or a worse accident, it will notify the authorities with a recording of the crash, sort of a vehicular black box. Information such as whether the airbags were deployed or the seatbelts used will be also relayed.
A car that parks itself? How cool is that? Exclusive only to Mercedes-Benz, the S550 will actually park itself. According to http://techcenter.mercedes-benz.com/en/active_parking/detail.html: “Active Parking Assist finds appropriate parking spaces and manoeuvres the vehicle into located spaces automatically and with great precision. The driver is required to only operate the accelerator and brake pedals.”
One luxury feature making its way into mainstream vehicles is the 2015 Chrysler 200’s transmission shift knob. Instead of a floor or dashboard mounted lever, a large round dashboard knob will shift gears automatically. This is a luxurious touch which will undoubtedly be copied by many other manufacturers in the future.
These are the exciting and most awaited car features of the 2015 vehicle model year, with many more technological advancements to come.
