Technology in new cars- Why this might be the best time to trade-in and upgrade

Advancements in technology have revolutionized the automobile industry in recent years. New cars are now equipped with advanced features that make them safer, more efficient, more comfortable and more convenient to drive and live with. In this post, we will explore the latest technology that has transformed the driving experience and made new cars more appealing than ever, and as a result, why now might be a good time to trade in your current car or truck for an upgrade.

Infotainment Systems

Touch Screen Displays

Simply tap, swipe or pinch to navigate through your apps and settings. When done right, touch screens can reduce the amount of physical buttons and create a more intuitive experience for the driver.

Voice-Activated Controls

Voice-activated controls are a game-changer when it comes to keeping your hands on the steering wheel, and your eyes on the road. Whether it's playing music or making a phone call, there's no more fumbling with buttons or menus. Just speak and let the car do the rest.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Want to stay connected while on the road? Apple CarPlay or Android Auto help your phone sync with your car's infotainment system. You can use your favourite apps hands-free, play music or even get directions using your phone.

Wi-Fi Hotspots

Want to stay connected on the go? May cars now offer Wi-Fi hotspots! You can connect multiple devices while on the road, perfect for long road trips.

Driver Assistance

Self-Parking

Thanks to the latest advancements in car technology, drivers can now enjoy a hassle-free parking experience. With the help of self-parking features, vehicles can easily detect and navigate to an available parking spot, allowing the driver to relax and let the car take over the parking process.

Traffic Jam Assist

Traffic Jam Assist is a driver-assistance feature that makes bumper-to-bumper traffic less stressful. It uses sensors and cameras to keep the car centered in its lane and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles. This can make long commutes more bearable, allowing you to arrive at your destination feeling calm and refreshed.

Rearview Cameras

Rearview cameras are now standard in just about every new car. They provide drivers with a clear view of what's behind them, making it easier to park and back up safely. It's hard to imagine going back to the days of turning around and guessing how much space you have left.

Heads-Up Displays

What was once a feature on high end luxury cars, Heads-Up Displays are becoming increasingly popular in many new cars. This feature projects important information like speed and navigation onto the windshield, allowing drivers to keep their eyes on the road while staying informed.

Why trade in your old car?

If you're ready to modernize your car, the best way to do so is to trade in your current vehicle when buying another. When you trade in your current vehicle, its value is deducted from the purchase price of your next vehicle. This means that you save the tax on the trade-in value! Let's say you're upgrading to a luxury SUV that costs $40,000, and the value of the vehicle you're trading in is $20,000. In this scenario, you're only paying sales tax on the remaining $20,000, which means you're saving thousands in sales tax!

Conclusion

The integration of technology in new cars over the past few years has transformed the driving experience. Safety features, infotainment systems, and driver assistance have all made newer cars more appealing and easier to operate. That's why there's never been a better time to trade in your older vehicle and drive away in a newer model with all these goodies.
