Buying A New Ride? Make Sure You Check Out These Modern Features

The experience of shopping for a new car is one of those important endeavors that can be both exciting and intimidating, especially when you feel the pressure of wanting to get the most for your money. However, as long as you have a good idea of the latest features you know you want in a new ride, every trip to a car dealership is made simple because you can just hand over your list. Here is a quick look at some of the more modern features you may want to add to your necessary list of features you know you must have with your new vehicle investment.

Smartphone-Operated Keyless Entry - Picture this: You inadvertently lock your keys in your car and have no spare on hand. But all you have to do to resolve this situation is whip out your smartphone and use the keyless entry app to unlock the doors of your car. Smartphone-operated keyless entry is one of the latest ways automakers are making the smartphone useful for drivers and could definitely be beneficial. These car models actually offer downloadable apps that can give you about the same control over your vehicle that you would get from a wireless key fob. 

Automated Parking Assistance - If you are one of those drivers that will plan your shopping experiences and driving stops around how you will be required to park, this is one feature you will not want to live without. Vehicles that offer automated parking assistance actually have complex sensors all the way around the exterior of the vehicle that make it possible for the car to practically park itself in tight situations. This can be an amazing feature to have if parallel parking is not your thing or you get nervous in tight bay parking slots where there is not a lot of room to maneuver. 

Easy-Read Navigation Screens - GPS is not always included in modern vehicles, but lately, more and more cars are rolling off the lot with GPS navigation systems built right in. This can be incredibly useful, but also makes way for the GPS system to be integrated in ways that an add-on navigation system would never allow. For example, some vehicle models help you keep your eyes on the road by implementing a digitized GPS navigation screen that pops up on the lower part of the windshield or even displays on a screen right on the instrument panel.
