Top 5 Best High-Tech Cars For 2017

By  |  0 Comments

Just a few years ago, rear cameras and integrated GPS navigators were only available in the most advanced, cutting-edge vehicles. Today, we take these features for granted along with built-in touchscreen displays, automated cruise control, plenty of USB jacks, and voice-controlled interface systems like Apple CarPlay and Google Auto. Most 2017 cars can park themselves, while some can even steer themselves on the highway using active lane keeping technology.

Nowadays, the most advanced cars can run on electricity, warn you about traffic jams, help you find a parking space, and a whole lot more. If you’re in the market for an innovative, state-of-the-art vehicle, take a look at the five most high-tech models of 2017.

#1 – Tesla Model S (P100D)

The latest Tesla goes from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds, shattering the stereotype of low-performance electric cars. On top of that, the 2017 Model S offers the most advanced autonomous driving features in the industry.

With a brand new intuitive Autopilot System, its machine-learning software enables you to use Tesla’s semi-autonomous driving mode at up to 45 mph. The system uses 12 ultrasonic sensors and eight cameras in addition to a forward-facing radar, maximizing safety and precision. If you go over the 45 mph limit with your hands off the wheel, the vehicle warns you and slows down automatically.

#2 – BMW 5 Series

First and foremost, the new 5 Series boasts the most high-tech user interface in its class. The onboard touchscreen computer features gesture recognition, Apple CarPlay support, and BMW’s patented ParkNow system. With ParkNow, you can take advantage of predictive street parking information and even reserve a garage parking spot remotely.

The key fob acts as a remote control. You can park without being in the driver seat or use Alexa to control the car via voice commands from the comfort of your home. On top of all that, there’s a 360-degree camera that activates remotely and connects to your smartphone.

#3 – Chevrolette Volt

In addition to a wide range of advanced safety features and a user-friendly touchscreen interface, the second-generation Chevrolet Volt offers a totally unique hybrid system.

It functions as an electric vehicle for up to 53 miles and only uses gas when the power runs out. That gives you all the advantages of an EV without the constant need to charge up. And, at just $35k, the Volt is also the most affordable car on our list. So, it may not get you a large car title loan, but it’ll get you from point A to point B no matter how far your destination is.

#4 – Rolls-Royce Wraith

As far as luxury vehicles go, the Wraith is as high-tech as they come. The biggest highlight is Rolls-Royce’s next-generation satellite-guided transmission. It used live topographic data to automatically shift the transmission, maximizing smoothness and efficiency. Plus, when the outside temperature changes to 35F, it alerts you that there might be ice on the road ahead.

#5 – Siera 1500 Denali

The Siera 1500 Denali is the world’s first smart pickup truck. Its safety features include collision sensors and automated high-beams. And the tech-friendly interface features an intuitive touchscreen and a large charging mat. To top it off, there’s also a built-in Bose noise cancellation system for maximum comfort.
