It’s no longer enough for new cars to look the coolest and drive the fastest. Now, car companies are competing to have the most innovative features in their new models. 2015 brings a whole new wave of technologically advanced vehicles with crazy new features; take a look at some of the best and most innovative.
2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
While trucks are usually known for towing capacity and engine power, the coolest feature on this pickup is that passengers can connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot that is built into the truck. Using OnStar’s 4G LTE, passengers can connect their mobile devices and laptops to the Internet with download speeds up to 12Mbps.
2015 Audi A3
Like the Silverado, the A3 comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot. But in addition to staying connected, Audi focused on bringing people together. If someone sends you a photo, you can navigate directly to the geolocation of where that person sent the photo. Just upload the photo to the MyAudi site, the car will read the photo’s geotag and you’ll be on your way.
2015 Kia Sedona SXL
When you hear the word ‘minivan’ you think of ‘moms.’ Well moms, whether you’re carrying kids or groceries, opening the trunk just got easier. The minivan senses when you’re approaching the liftgate and opens automatically if you have your key fob in your pocket.
2015 Ford Mustang
Ford’s iconic muscle car has directed its attention to one word: safety. The 2015 model has a safety system called Sync 911 Assist that notifies the authorities if you are in an accident with a recorded message about the nature of the crash. It also reports whether the airbags deployed, if the seat belts were fastened and the speed of the car at the time of the crash.
