The Coolest Car Tech While We Wait for Flying Cars

During the mid-20th century, there was plenty of speculation that we’d all have flying cars by now, so it’s understandable if you’re disappointed by our lack of progress in that area. But there is a lot of incredibly cool technology available in cars right now that engineers in 1950 could hardly have dreamed of. We’re taking steps toward fully autonomous vehicles, we’re driving electric supercars, we’re talking to our cars – and they respond. 

You don’t have to pay six-figure prices for the features that will eventually enable self-driving cars, advanced car safety features, and other forward-thinking tech. Many of the most amazing features can be found in reasonably affordable models, though it does usually require adding a package or upgrading the trim level. The following slides highlight mainstream cars with great new tech features, and on each slide, we’ve included the lowest price for the vehicle equipped with the technology described. As you read, keep in mind that the scores you see here might not exactly match the scores in our reviews. That’s because our reviews are updated whenever new information becomes available.
