The last decade has seen high-tech features become ever more important to car buyers who replace their cars more frequently than ever thanks to the pace of change. Equipment that was once available only in luxury models has filtered down to superminis and city cars – features such as Auto Emergency Braking, satellite navigation, heated seats and even heated steering wheels.
However, what’s set to come will be even more impressive, with car makers shoehorning ever more technology into their cars. This technology will make our vehicles safer, cleaner and more luxurious than ever before, but instead of buying cars we’re set to rent them instead.
Within the next decade in-car internet will become the norm, allowing you to communicate with your appliances at home while cars will also talk to each other, leading to fewer crashes. All of this tech will coincide with cars being able to take on more of the driving, with self-parking cars becoming standard issue.
