Whether you love to stay connected, crave convenience or simply enjoy bells and whistles on your vehicle, there are several options to satisfy your inner tech geek. If you are in the market for a vehicle, consider these technology-savvy options:
Nissan’s Versa Note
Want high-end technology, but also an affordable car? With a base price of $19,300, the Note has an AroundView monitor that allows a series of cameras to rest on the outside of this subcompact car. This is particularly helpful for tight parking spaces. With a dashboard-mounted screen, you have the ability to anticipate and correct within seconds. Advanced technology provides several other bonuses, including making this a fuel-efficient, smooth driving and spacious compact car.
Honda Fit EX-L
Do you somehow manage to get lost even when you are following the directions your smartphone’s GPS is giving you? The Honda Fit EX-L has state-of-the-art navigation with built-in voice recognition to make it convenient for you to be solely in control. There’s also a small camera mounted on the passenger side to avoid any blind spot issues.
Toyota’s flagship hybrid vehicle offers fuel efficiency and advanced technology features. If you are a techy, you will love the adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane assist and a entertainment system. If you love to be green, then the solar roof will appeal to your environmental side. Try out the top-of-the-line features for yourself and test drive a Prius.
Looking for a car with 4G LTE connectivity? The Audi A3 has it. Want to access Google Earth or Google Street View? You are able to access and zoom into these destinations with Google from a small touchpad that also allows you to write down names and addresses. For on-the-road entertainment, the Audi A3 infotainment system offers drivers all of the standard music options plus Internet radio stations.
