Home / News / Five Cars for Tech Lovers

 

Tech continues to be a market driver in many industries these days. For many a consumer a new television, phone, camera, and car simply must contain the most recent tech. For the cars new tech includes rear-view cameras, electric motors, internet connectivity, and hands-free controls.

If you are a tech lover looking for a new car, these five cars deserve your attention.

  • The Volvo V60 is headed to America (it’s already available in Europe) with some safety technology that is, well, suitable for a Volvo. The V60 can stop itself when it sees danger ahead.
  • The Ford Mustang‘s new technology is something that folks of my generation can really get being. Its manual transmission help feature vibrates the shift knob when the optimal time to shift has arrived. Only when cars start flying will this tech be topped.
  • Traditionally, luxury sedan and fuel efficiency have not gone hand in hand. But, the Mercedes S Class is changing that. Its plug-in hybrid S Class will hit the showroom floors next year and be rated somewhere around 50 miles per gallon combined.
  • The Honda Civic Tourer comes with a technological advancement that is unrecognizable at first glance, a Rear Adaptive Damper System. The RADS improves the handling of this fun little car by being adjustable. Sadly though, it will only be offered in Europe next year.
  • The fifth techie car on the list is the Chevy Volt. General Motors and TimberRock have teamed up to incorporate solar panels into its smart grid technology. The thought is that this will help drivers by making it easier for them to charge their vehicles during peak hours, when energy supplies are often more limited.
