Fortunately, many car designers are now paying increasing attention to features that offer convenience and comfort in addition to being aesthetically pleasing to the user. Due to this shift in trend we are witnessing cars that are not only super-efficient engines of transportation but in fact delight and amaze us. Here are some of the most amazing features that are highly sought after by people looking to purchase a car.
Thankfully people have not been carried away by their desire for a fun and pleasurable driving experience. Safety still ranks among the topmost priorities of car owners and they expect safety features to be included in their cars. Wheel lock systems are a particularly useful feature that reduce the chances of a car being stolen or simply driven off. Many cars are now equipped with parking sensors installed in the rear as well as the front to assist with safe parking. To avoid injury when the car makes a sudden stop or hits a particularly steep bump on the road, head restraints are provided in the front and rear seats. Advanced braking systems and seat belts are also something that car owners are paying careful attention to in their latest models.
The concept of ergonomics is related to safety. Ergonomic features are of particular interest to those who spend a large part of their day driving their cars out on the road. Remaining in the same position and having the body in contact with the same surface for hours on end can result in muscular strain. Ergonomic features are demanded by such car owners as they serve to reduce the strain and make the driving experience more comfortable. Seats that provide support for the lumbar region, torso and thigh are becoming very common in recent car models. Similarly, high-end cars are equipped with a computerized system that allows the driver to set up personalized settings for ergonomic comfort.
Performance features have not suffered any neglect over the growing interest in safety and design features. Customers are still concerned about receiving the best value for their dollar and they do not shy away from demanding greater fuel efficiency. This is one important reason why transmission systems have become increasingly efficient in fuel consumption. One can witness no dearth of cars in international trade shows that compete with each other on the basis of how efficient they are in saving fuel for their owners.
Smart cars seemed to be a thing of the future but by the way autos updates are developing recently, the future might as well be here. Cars that offer GPRS have already become routine while we may soon be seeing driver less cars zipping past us on the road. Other smart features that cars may come to embody relate to the Web of Things which would enable the car to serve as a mobile office and even home appliances may be controlled right from within the car simply by logging into the smart car system.
