With all the advancements in technology, it only makes sense that our cars are also getting smarter. These new innovations make cars more than just vehicles to get from point A to point B. They have become mobile offices and mini escapes for some people. Here are some of the top technology features:
• Bluetooth – with all the cell phone and hands-free laws in effect, having Bluetooth is becoming a must. This allows you to make and answer calls while driving, without having to use your phone or become distracted. Bluetooth isn’t just for calls. If your phone is paired properly to your car, you can stream music without having to use an AUX or USB cord.
• Navigation System – this feature is starting to become standard in new cars, SUVs and trucks. Having an onboard navigation system keeps you off your phone while driving. Navigation also gives you traffic updates, alternate routes and arrival times.
• Voice Command – this keeps your eyes on the road and the distractions to a minimum. With voice command, you can easily change a song or the radio station, make a call, write down a note, or enter your destination into the onboard navigation system.

Safety features on a new car should be considered carefully. With all the modern technology comes new and improved safety features. While some safety features you can pass up, here are some key features to look at:
• Keyless entry – this allows you to unlock your car door in an instant if your key fob is on you or in your purse or bag. This means you no longer have to fumble or search for your car keys while standing at your driver door. Once inside your car, the engine starts with the press of a button.
• Forward Collision Warning – this system alerts you visually or with audible signals of a potential crash and gives you time to react accordingly. While driving we may not be aware of everything that is happening around us. With FCW, your car is aware of the surrounding conditions and can alert you if needed.
• Back up camera – having a backup camera is like having eyes in the back of your head. It allows you to see everything that is behind or to the side of your car. This helps to reduce the risk of reversing into something you might not have seen. It is also a great tool for parking – whether you are backing into a parking space or are parallel parking. Having a backup camera can help give you peace of mind.

StyleFor some car buyers, the style of your car can mean more than any safety or technology feature. Here are some top interior and exterior styles that consumers are loving:
• LED lights – make a bold statement to any car. LED headlights are more efficient and they provide better lighting over the standard yellow tone headlight.
• Black top roofs – also called two-tone black roofs are one of the newer trends that have popped up. These roofs provide a seamless look, creates a unique profile, and adds a premium touch.
• Ventilated seats – maintains your comfort as the driver or passenger. Having the ability to cool your seat on a scorching summer day or to turn the seat heater on in the winter can make all the difference in your commute.
