As you might have guessed, safety is the primary priority for most auto-shoppers. Blindspot warning systems, rearview cameras, and automatic emergency braking are three of the most desirable technologies customers seek out on a new model.

Convenient details

Modern consumers also value convenient functions like keyless entry and a 360-degree camera. The first feature makes life a whole lot easier when you’re trying to access the vehicle when your arms are full. The second tool gives you a surround-view of the auto’s environment, which can help you to park the vehicle more accurately and safely.

Infotainment options

Though connectivity used to be an optional add-on, it’s becoming an expectation for modern drivers. Fast USB charging and USB charging-docks in the backseat zone are two attractive amenities shoppers prioritize. They also value entertainment platforms like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which help keep passengers engaged with games and playlists on long drives.

Usable design

As popular as touch-screen designs are, it turns out that consumers still appreciate more tactile designs. Infotainment systems that incorporate old-school buttons and knobs let you adjust climate and audio settings for the cabin while keeping your eyes on the road ahead.

As 2019 plays out, it will be intriguing to see if these consumer priorities shift. Stay tuned for more news in the days ahead as we continue to monitor these trends.
