From Collision-Avoiding Hatchbacks to Connected Luxury Cars

 - Sep 25, 2016
From collision-avoiding hatchbacks to app-connected luxury cars, the September 2016 auto trends reveal an intense focus on improving the driver experience.

While car manufacturers are always looking to make cars safer to drive, new technology is allowing them to make vehicles even safer than ever before. For instance, 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback comes with collision avoidance technology to help prevent accidents on the road. Similarly, the new Mercedes Metris Worker is equipped with lane assist, blind spot warning and reversing cameras so that drivers can more easily maneuver the van.

On the other hand, the September 2016 auto trends reveal that technology is also improving the driver experience in other ways. Whether it is making it more convenient to unlock a vehicle or incorporating new entertainment features, high-tech upgrades such as app connectivity and 360-degree cameras are quickly changing the in-car experience.
