Kelley Blue Book Identifies Best Auto Tech for 2018

The report includes many features most consumers are likely unaware of.

Jan. 8, 2018—Kelley Blue Book recently released its list of the 10 Best Automotive Technologies of 2018, pointing out some of the most innovative in-vehicle features that figure to become industry staples.

Some of the features mentioned in the article largely include updates to vehicle features that have already been in existence, such as: connected mobile apps, teen-driver report cards, adaptive cruise, LED headlights, and the utilization of USB ports.

A few elements mentioned, however, include features most consumers aren’t likely aware of. For example, rear cross-traffic alerts will provide drivers with not only a rear camera view when backing up, but, thanks to sensors on the rear of the vehicle, also boast the ability to beep and thus warn a driver of approaching vehicles, pedestrians, or shopping carts.

Kelley Blue Book also brought 360-degree vehicle cameras to consumers’ attention, noting that the evolving camera technology will utilize cameras on every side of a vehicle, to aid drivers with issues such as parallel parking, or parking at a shopping center.
