Modern Cars have become more than a way to transport us, since we are spending more and more time in our cars. The customer of today are looking for things other than just good fuel economy or performance. Today, it’s all about the latest features & vehicle technologies. The new technological revolution has changed the way cars are looked. New technology is now a primary factor in the vehicle purchase decision. Sometime,the car buyers have some idea about the technology features they want in a new car, but they’re not clear if it is worthwhile to spend the extra cost for the top variant with all the features and technology
To help the new-car buyers,we list out 10 must have features & technology that consumers should consider getting including safety, comfort and entertainment options while buying a modern Hatchback Car, SUV, MUV or a Sedan in 2021.
1. Touch Screen Infotainment System with Android Auto & Apple Carplay
Nearly every car sold in India has this feature plus even the sub 5 lakh entry level hatchback like Renault Kwid has this feature in India. This is something all expect and since our smart phones are touch, the same is happening with cars. However the more premium cars are getting massive 10inch plus touch screens which makes using them easier while some premium cars get haptic feedback. Also smart phone connectivity goes beyond Bluetooth since wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is also an important factor for buying any new car.
2. Connected Car Technology
Probably the biggest difference in cars coming in this year from last year as connected tech has changed in-car communication. Hyundai first brought in this technology in India with its Venue SUV for cars in 10 lakh price segment and now many other cars in the 10 lakh and above price bracket have it. Connected car technology brings in an embedded sim in the car and you can connect with it via an app. Then you can control various functions like remote lock/unlock/Geo-fencing, start/stop plus giving you information and real time data. There is more safety with emergency services.
3. Wireless Mobile Phone Charging
Another convenience feature which many cars are having and it was again Hyundai which first started the trend of giving even its small cars this feature. It helps because you do not need to travel with a cable to charge your phone.
4. Reverse Parking Camera
A rear view camera is essential to help you park in tight spots and even Renault Kwid has this feature and of course all other cars above it.
5. Multi function Steering Wheel
A steering wheel is no longer just about steering the car as it is also about accessing controls on it so that you do not have to reach out to the centre console.
6. Key less Entry and Push Button Start/Stop
Almost all cars have this feature and this is helpful plus convenient since you do not have to physically insert the key to start or get in the car.
7. LED lights
Lights have also changed with increase in technology and LED lighting is safer plus more effective. Most cars in premium space have it and even hatchbacks have it in their top variant.
8. Alloy Wheels
Alloy wheels are no longer a luxury and except for the base variants, all variants have alloy wheels. Alloy wheels look good and also enhance the performance. They are an important part of a car's appeal.
9. Leather seats
While our conditions demand leatherette seats the premium cars these days offer proper leather seats for that extra comfort and that is desirable.
Once the sunroof was part of the feature list for expensive cars but now cars costing under Rs 10 lakh are having this new feature while midsize SUVs like the Creta are having a proper panoramic sunroof too.
