New Car Features in Select Makes

There is plenty of new car technology already being featured in today’s recent models—we’ve talked about some of these features on 2013 models and even smartphone sync technology. However, there are plenty of cool car features equipped in specific makes that haven’t quite reached mainstream status yet.

A line of Nissan vehicles including the Altima, Lead, Pathfinder, Quest, and Sentra (along with Infiniti’s JX) make tire inflation easy. Their guided tire inflation system notifies the driver when the tires hit just the right amount of pressure. How? As the tire reaches proper pressure the car’s horn will indicate when to stop. Nifty.

Among the newer safety features available, Mercedes-Benz’ Attention Assist system as well as Ford’s inflatable safety belts stand out. The latter is exactly what it sounds like—these belts inflate up to 5 times the width compared to a conventional belt. The extra width helps spread the force of an impact and is said to greatly benefit the elderly and young (those who average belts might not fit well). The Attention Assist from Mercedes actually notes driving behavior, providing both an audible and visual warning if it concludes your driving behavior is off.

What are some car features you would like to see in the future?
