The next generation of automotive services are making the most of mobility like never before. This is most notable in a number of on-demand services that are on the rise, including ones that allow drivers to order valets, mechanics, deliveries, test drives and rideshare services, which also appeal to non-drivers as well.

Just as many of these services use a smartphone to enhance what can be offered, several new vehicles are being designed with intelligent in-car systems that allow users to pay for food, fuel and even make restaurant bookings in advance.

In order to make the the use of cars even more convenient, they're being further enhanced with mobile technology, not just for navigation, but also for maintenance and assistance with other aspects of daily life.
