Now, though, keyless entry and push-button start have become a common standard feature or inexpensive option, even on some affordable car models. Something that seemed excessive, unusual, or totally unnecessary when it first came out now just seems normal.

So what’s next? Automakers are rolling out the latest convenience and safety features, designed to make our lives easier and our travels less dangerous, even though some of this new technology sounds a little quirky. Some of these innovations are available exclusively with certain brands or models, while others can be found on the features menu of a variety of vehicles. Take a look at some of the most interesting new car features to hit the market, and find out how and where to get them.
