Top 85 Auto Trends in March

From High-Tech Luxury Sedans to Off-Road Camping Vehicles

— March 24, 2018 — Autos
Driving has revolutionized the structure of society the world over, and the March 2018 auto trends show that that revolution is continuing to spin. Automotive brands are increasingly looking to align themselves with the technology industry, giving consumers vehicles that are increasingly impressive markers of the future of transportation.

One of the developments that has wowed consumers most is the new features on the BMW M760Li xDrive, a new vehicle from the German automaker that has recently been revealed on the auto show circuit. The newest model of the company's luxury line of sedans includes things like gesture control and Level 3 autonomous driving functionality.

Technological developments also abound as far as efficiency and environmental friendliness are concerned, with even some of the fastest supercars in the world running on electricity rather than gas.
