Technology is advancing at an alarmingly rapid pace. And this is truer than anywhere else in the world of car manufacturing. There are technologies that are already with us, and we can also read about all the future advances that are coming our way. Over the past year, we’ve heard more and more about the boundary-pushing companies that are trying to develop self-driving cars. If this eventually becomes a reality, the way we drive will be changed forever.
Let’s not get carried away with the technology currently in the pipeline though. There are a lot of great and innovative technologies making waves in the motoring industry right now. So, let’s have a look at what the most technologically advanced cars available in 2015 are.
The Mustang improves every year. Unlike a lot of car manufacturers, Ford doesn’t release an upgrade on a car unless it truly is a worthwhile upgrade on the last model. And the same was proven to be true with the 2015 Mustang. It was clear upon release that technology was where Ford was focusing.
The new Mustang comes equipped with the advanced MyFord Touch infotainment systems. This shows you all your stats and performance information on a stylish display, and you can even share all that data if you want. You can also control all your entertainment and connect up your devices.
The Mercedes-Benz S600 combines top technology that makes driving more fun with the very best safety technology you’ll find in a car nowadays. It shouldn’t be any surprise to us though, Mercedes-Benz has always liked to develop new technologies and be a step ahead of the rest of the industry.
The collision prevention system is a great bit of technology. It will be alerted if there is a collision imminent and prevent it from happening. This is a great safety policy to have and could end up saving a lot of money on repairs for people. The fun stuff is great too. It has a head-up display that projects all your stats and figured directly onto the windscreen.
Lexus NX 300h
In trying to break into the compact SUV market, Lexus have developed the NX 300h. And it’s clear that the manufacturer is relying on technological advances to set them apart from the crowd. The hybrid engine (that’s what the ‘h’ in the name stands for) technology means that you won’t feel or hear a thing when you put the car into gear and accelerate.
The touchpad dashboard system is easy to use. And the bird’s eye view parking system as well as the blind spot assist will definitely be useful for drivers. You can pick them up for a good prices from places like Inchcape Lexus too. Unlike a lot of the cars on this list, it isn’t a ridiculously expensive car!
Jeep Grand Cherokee
If off-roading is your thing, the most technologically advances SUV on the market is the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It can handle all kinds of environments. But no matter what environment you’re driving in, you’ll be doing it in comfort and luxury aided by the Cherokee’s vast array of tech and gadgets.
The Cherokee’s dashboard is like a tech geek’s idea of heaven. You have all the driving settings to play with depending on where you’re driving. And then you can have fun with the touch-screen interface. You can download an array of apps and tailor it to suit your precise needs. It also has a voice recognition system for when you need two hands on the wheel.
Tesla Model S
It’s the best electric car on the market right now, and it’s one of the most expensive too. It’s one of the few cars really pushing the electric car market forward right now. While a lot of people are questioning the future of electric cars, Tesla and staying true and making sure the electric car has a future.
As well as all the new environmentally friendly technology Tesla are harnessing, there is also now a great driver-assistance system in the latest Model S update. It has automated parking, lane-keeping assist and audaciously named autopilot hardware. It can send out radars and combine them with information gained from sensors and cameras to make sure you avoid disasters.
The i8 is BMW’s attempt to put out a concept car that combines high performance with low emissions. One of the most fascinating things about the car is its lightweight design. BMW engineers used the latest technology to make the lightest carbon fiber body possible.
The interiors are incredibly stylish, and the technology on the dashboard is as good as you’d expect from BMW. But the real technological advances that the i8 has to show off come in the form of the engineering. Although, the fact that the speed is projected in front of you so only the driver can see it is pretty cool!
