7 Extra Car Features That You Can Afford

When you think of extra features, you probably think of luxury vehicles that come with all the bells and whistles you could ever want – and a price tag to match. But did you know that more extra or luxury features are becoming available in affordable cars every day? You don’t have to break the bank just to get a rearview camera or USB capabilities these days.

Entertainment And Navigation Systems

These systems aren’t anything particularly new, since navigational systems have existed in cars since the late nineties. Their level of advancement, however, is something to be impressed by. These days, luxury-end navigation and entertainment systems in cars are starting to make their way down to more moderately priced vehicles. These systems allow you to do things like direct yourself around traffic, have your texts read, select from various entertainment sources like podcasts, and make reservations at nearby restaurants. Many even have hard drive storage, DVD readers, and extensive systems that make your car a moving computer.

Automatic Parallel Parking

Among the most highly rated safety features you didn’t know you needed is automatic parallel parking. Parallel parking has been a nuisance or source of embarrassment for drivers for as long as driving has been around, but the days of having to give up prime parking real estate because of poor parallel parking skills are over. This feature uses automation and a system of sensors in order to detect the position of other cars around you and the curb. It will guide your vehicle perfectly into a parallel park without any effort on your part. You can enjoy all the benefits of a front row spot without any of the potential mishaps, like parking too far from the curb, sticking out at a bad angle, or – worst of all – hitting the cars around you.

Rearview Cameras

On many luxury cars, there are cameras that show all of the spots that drivers have difficulty seeing on their own. This includes behind the vehicle, of course. These days, an affordable car with a rearview camera is entirely within your grasp. Many vehicles have this as a safety feature, allowing you to view the area behind your car clearly and without obstruction.

In-Car Wi-Fi

This is a great option for people who drive others around, or who work from their car. In-car Wi-Fi is exactly what it sounds like; it turns your entire vehicle into a router that allows for you to connect to the internet on the go. Say goodbye to the days of having to crash into the nearest coffee shop or restaurant to pull out your laptop and finish your reports; you can now do them from the comfort of your own vehicle in any parking lot. You can easily keep passengers occupied during long drives this way, too.

Pre-Collision Brakes

This is a feature that is still taking its time to come down from the higher-end luxury brands, but its arrival is well worth the wait. Pre-collision brakes work to keep you from hitting vehicles in front of you. For example, if your eyes are taken from the road or if a car before you stops suddenly, the pre-collision brakes will kick in and keep you from ramming into them. In non-luxury vehicles, this feature usually works at lower speeds, but it is still a good tool to have at your disposal.

Adaptive Cruise Control

This feature involves a radar system in the car that allows for automatic control of brakes and throttle. The radar will scan the road in front of you while you drive and react automatically to any threat. It’s a great option for people who live in areas that have a lot of deer or other animals that dart into the road suddenly.

Blind Spot Monitors

A car’s blind spot is one of the most dangerous things about it, both to the driver of the car and to other vehicles or pedestrians around it. Now you can circumvent these problems at a fraction of the cost of a luxury vehicle with blind spot monitors. These are functionally similar to rearview cameras in that they allow you to have a camera view of your blind spots. This way, you can check to make sure all areas really are clear before you take those turns.
