At CarMark Hawaii we buy used cars for cash in Honolulu, so we’re always interested in the latest automotive news and trends. There are several new trends in luxury cars in regards to comfort, safety and convenience according to Edmunds, including a few we’re sharing below.
Not all of us can afford Mercedes, Lexus. Audi or BMW’s, but it’s fun to dream! The important thing to keep in mind is that it’s likely some of these features will be available in more affordable vehicles in the years to come.
Whether you want to relax while driving or invigorate, it seems Mercedes has this handled with its Energizing Comfort system, a combination of massage, heating or cooling, lighting, audio and even lending fragrance to the air!
Anyone who can afford a Lexus LS sedan and has a couple thousand extra dollars to spend can enjoy an audiophile-level Mark Levinson surround-sound system with 23 powerful speakers. In the market for a Porsche Panamera? You can upgrade to Burmester audio for around $7,500 or a little more.
When it comes to safety, Lexus and Mercedes vehicles can swerve to avoid pedestrians or objects that could result in an accident automatically with steering avoidance. They also offer emergency stop assistance, which means the system is capable of bringing the vehicle to a stop if the driver has become unresponsive. In this case, the system will bring the vehicle to a stop in the lane it is in, then alert emergency services and activate hazard lights.
Mercedes offers on more trending technology that alerts those in the vehicle when a collision is about to occur. With Pre-Safe Sound, a specific sound is emitted that reportedly triggers a natural reflex in the ear canals that shuts out noises that frequently occur during a crash such as airbag deployment and impact noise.
As in nearly every other aspect of life, technology rules and makes our lives easier, safer, and more convenient. If you can’t afford a Mercedes, Lexus, Porsche, or other high-dollar vehicle, not to worry. Many of these features will become available in the cars and trucks most of us drive in the coming years.
