These New Cars Are Quiet as a Library

Serenity is a wonderful thing. If a whisper-quiet ride is one of your top car-buying criteria, there’s good news – you’re no longer limited to luxury sedans, though that’s still where you’ll find the quietest of the quiet. However, new technologies are silencing the cabins in vehicles of all types.

Whether it’s the noise from the engine, road, or wind that you’re trying to quiet, carmakers have new ways of making their cabins library-like.

Acoustic glass and advanced sound-deadening materials can prevent the noise from making it inside the car at all.
