It’s impressive how technologically advanced today’s cars are! However, sometimes the number of available features is overwhelming. McGrath is here to help break down and explain some of the best safety technologies.
Blind-Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
It is always safer to have a second set of eyes help you while driving, especially because we can’t always see if or when a car is behind (or is quickly approaching behind) us. The Blind-Spot Monitor will warn drivers who are wanting to switch lanes if there is a vehicle in their blind spot. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert is useful when reversing out of a parking spot in a parking lot or onto a busy street where you have little to no rear visibility.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise — unlike standard Cruise Control — will slow down the car when it is too close to another vehicle. This is a helpful feature when you are on a long road trip!
Automatic Emergency Braking
The Automatic Emergency Braking helps drivers avoid collisions, whether it be in traffic or when driving through deer-crossing areas.
Keyless Entry / Ignition and Remote Start
Tired of searching your pockets and purse for your keys while standing outside of your car in the rain or snow? Keyless Entry is a convenient feature that turns on the lights and unfolds the side mirrors when you stand near the vehicle with the keys, and the doors quickly unlock once you grab the door handle. The remote start gives you the option to enter a warmed up vehicle in the cold months so it can save you time and not sit in the cold.
HID / LED Headlights
HID and LED headlights provide superior lighting over traditional headlights. Plus, many advanced headlights come with adaptive systems that turn with the road and light up curves and turns better.
Instead of trying to use your smartphone for directions, using a vehicle’s navigation system allows drivers to easily and safely locate gas stations, plan food stops and find local attractions.
With 4G LTE, 4G or 3G internet, your passengers can use multiple devices, like laptops and tablets, to entertain themselves on long road trips.
Make sure that all of your devices are charged with the handy USB Ports. Try to find a vehicle that has available USB Ports in the front and in the rear so all passengers are happy.
With Bluetooth, drivers can talk on the phone while obeying all laws and making sure their focus is directed towards the road.
