Automotive technologies are just as important in this day and age as horsepower or fuel economy figures, and this new list highlights the most usable new features on the market.

We live in an age where every product is smart, connected and interactive, and today’s vehicles are no exception. With that in mind, gathered ten of the hottest new advances in auto technology to keep potential buyers up to date. The article, The Top 10 Coolest Automobile Technology Advances, lists a wide variety of intriguing new vehicle advancements that could become must-have features on every car in the future.

In the information age, it’s more important than ever to have the latest and greatest tech, and that attitude has quickly crept its way into cars of all shapes and sizes. And it’s not just techies that yearn for these novelty options, nor are they simply flashy or gimmicky add-ons. The technology goodies available in vehicles today appeal to customers across all demographics and price ranges, and are just as functional as they are fashionable.

The industry has come a long way since the first rearview camera and Bluetooth capability, so the article highlights technologies that have just recently come to market or are currently under development for production. Some are available now and others will be lucky to see an assembly line by the end of the decade, but one thing is for sure: each of these technologies has the potential to one day be standard equipment on every car in America.

“Automotive technologies are just as important in this day and age as horsepower or fuel economy figures, and this new list highlights the most usable new features on the market,” said Founder and CEO Doug Hamlin. “Buyers will find all kinds of new technologies, from the production-ready to the futuristic, that could be in American garages for the foreseeable future. The list also names the automakers that are developing these features, and can click directly over to the's New Cars buying guide to research and request a quote from these brands.”

The list features luxury brands that are well-known for introducing new technologies as well as budget-minded companies that are finding ways to combine connectivity with value.

Some of the listed technologies are updated or revised versions of already existing features. For instance, Honda has cleverly integrated a camera that projects onto the side-view mirrors to eliminate blind spots. Chrysler has honed its intelligent SmartBeam headlamps, Kia now offers water-resistant windshields and Acura takes an impressive shot at rear-wheel steering.

Other tech features on the list, however, are innovative industry firsts. The new Drive-E series of engines from Volvo promise small-displacement four-cylinder engines that pump out 300 horsepower and class-leading fuel economy. General Motors is set to introduce powerful 4G connectivity, and Ford envisions an entire intelligent network of smart vehicles. Just wait until you see what Audi has in store that could change parking forever.

“It won’t be long before new vehicles in all price ranges are packed with innovative technology, and will keep readers on top of these advances as they continue to come to market,” said Hamlin.
