Ten must-have technologies for new cars, according to 24/7 Wall Street.
A list of the high-tech features that new car buyers say they must have in new vehicle includes four that could be categorized as infotainment features and two that are clearly safety features. While some of the features are not as new as we might think, considering that the average car these days is more than ten years old, there are plenty of drivers for whom the high-tech features are in fact brand new.
The editors at Kelley Blue Book have compiled a list of 10 “must-have” features from a survey of consumers conducted in the fourth quarter of 2013. The most desired feature, by 43% of those surveyed, was availability of USB/auxiliary ports. That’s hardly cutting edge technology, but it is basic, allowing drivers and passengers at least to charge their mobile devices while they are riding. It is also standard equipment on most compact and larger cars.
