Browsing new models and previews over the weekend I realized that vehicles have become very good. When you go buy a new car these days your head may want to combust after scouring the options list attached the car you want, but realize that if you take your time it’s easy to find exactly what you want, and even a little extra, without spending a whole lot extra. Take a look at what you have to look forward to right here and now.
Oh yeah; want to experience any of the stuff listed below? Shop, buy, and enjoy at CarWoo!
It’s almost embarrassing to be seen in something that doesn’t have a backup camera or at least rear sensors these days. And while these things can be replaced by competence, we’ve also got hybrids that warn pedestrians when they’re approaching (because they’re so quiet), blind spot monitors, lane departure warning & adaptive cruise control systems, and even night vision & pedestrian detection features that provide an extra layer of protection against the elements. Don’t forget about improvements in structural integrity, either. It’s always good to be able to walk away from an accident, but preventing one in the first place is pretty nice, too.
Improved Fuel Economy
More efficient gasoline engines are giving us some great returns, and more and more US based makes are taking advantage of hybrid and diesel technology. Better aerodynamics, grille shutters, and lighter parts also add to the equation, and more and more models are being fitted with this once future technology. So the next time prices escalate, take some solace in the fact that manufacturers are doing their part to help keep your wallets intact.
Better Equipped Base Models
Take a look at some of the cheapest models available in any brand’s lineup, and you realize that there are some pretty sweet features being offered. I thank Hyundai for helping to get the ball rolling here. Economic values like the Chevy Sonic and new Dodge Dart are not only offering great tech options, but also delivering quality, comfort, and aesthetic style all for under $20,000. You don’t have to pay for luxury to get the toys that you want anymore, and that’s a great thing.
Just about everyone offers some sort of infotainment interface that lets you handle everything from roadside assistance services to that terrible music playlist all your friends hate, all in one place. Sure, you can easily get by without the use of voice activation and touchscreens, but what would be the fun in that?
This one may not be as sexy as 3D navigation or WiFi, but it’s arguably more important than anything you’re going to be playing with on the dash. Brands have realized that while people enjoy things like foot operated tailgates and sunglass holders, the best new features are simple things that are actually useful. Bigger, more comfortable seats and more cargo room are being seen in smaller packages that don’t drive like refrigerators. Just take a look at how the crossover segment has blown up in the past couple years. By combining smooth, car-like performance with SUV type space, shoppers are getting something they actually like- practicality. And happiness.
Another feature shoppers can enjoy? Being able to buy the vehicle they want from their living room. Thanks CarWoo!
