Must-have car features you shouldn’t overlook

The market holds such an extensive range of vehicles that choosing the perfect car seems like an extremely difficult task.
Besides aesthetics - the interior and exterior design being the first thing that catches the eye - you will need to consider functionality and practically as well. Just as cars vary in price, they also vary in range o features offered, but while some features can be beneficial but not exactly necessary, others remain essential. If you want to know about the must-have features you should not skip when you are buying a car, the following information will help you out in this department:


Forward collision warning

Because safety should come first when you are on the road, features that revolve around this detail are of great importance. With a forward collision warning system incorporated, will decrease the likelihood of facing an impact on the road, which is certainly something that any driver should focus on. From cameras to sensor and lasers, such as system uses various effective means of warning to signal you in case of a potential impact. Edmund says the 2018 Kia Niro, for example, excels in this department.

Automatic emergency braking

Revolving around safety as well, an AEB system will sense potential collisions, giving you the chance to react on time. If you are unable to do so, the deckle will break automatically for you, which contributes to how protected you are on the road, and lowers the worries of drivers who usually panic during impacts and tend to not have reaction instincts. This is a feature that any new generation car should hold, and definitely one you should look for in the car you buy.

Smartphone compatibility

Because you are living in the digital area, the car you decide on should also come with a few tech features included. Although the majority of vehicles of today do provide a Bluetooth connectivity system, sometimes, this might not be compatible with all types of smartphones. Make sure to link your phone to the car and check out its function. This will allow you to benefit from hands free phone calls during driving as well as streamed internet source audio, which will make your drives more convenient.

Comfortable seats

Comfort has always been and will always be something you need to pay attention to when making this type of purchase. Regardless of how much time you usually send driving, you still need to feel comfortable during your rides. So regardless of price range, or the brand you might be interested in, take the vehicle for at least a 15 to 20 minutes test drive to asses the car’s seats.

Even if you might think you know a few things about cars, before making such a big purchase, researching the topic thoroughly is recommended. Because you can easily get lost between the virtually endless list of features new generation cars have to offer, knowing about the essentials is recommended. The features above mentioned remain he most important ones to look for, if you want to drive a vehicle that is characterized by excellent ride quality, safety and comfort.
