The race to the future is on and car manufacturers aren’t far behind! They keep surprising us with new technology whether it’s safety or entertainment features or tech that is just cool. It’s become an era where even flying cars are just around the bend! Let’s hope that they keep going at this pace so we can just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Interested in learning what they have in store for us in the near future? Discover more below.

Autonomous Vehicles: We have all wished for a Batmobile at some point, right! Wouldn’t it be cool to have a car that drives itself? The good news is it’s no longer a faraway possibility. By 2020, we will have cars that can be fully autonomous under certain circumstances, for example, driving through rural interstates and under favorable weather conditions. Prepare to say hello to the next generation of cruise control, folks!

Override Systems: Now your cars will have the final say, not you! Coming soon are driver override systems that will have the ability to override a driver’s commands in certain conditions. Imagine being in a situation where you need to apply the brakes but floor the gas pedal instead. No worries, your car will simply disregard your command and apply the brakes for you.

Active Window Displays: Head-Up Display (HUD) technology is improving by leaps and bounds. Gone are the days when we had dim green digits projected on windshields. The year 2020 will see the arrival of active glass capable of displaying vibrant images. We will certainly like a windshield that highlights the next turn as the car approaches it. What do you say? If you like this idea, you will love these Augmented Reality Dashboards.

HoloActive Touch: BMW wowed car lovers at the recent CES with their amazing HoloActive Touch system. What does it do, you ask? Well, get this. It’s a touch-sensitive display that appears to float in midair! It displays information about navigation, music and more, responding to finger gestures with tactile feedback.

Vehicle Tracking: Who wouldn’t like to have lower insurance costs on their car? By 2020, all you have to do to get lower insurance rates will be to let your insurance company track your driving habits. Apparently the less you drive, the lower your costs. Makes sense, but let’s hope they keep this system a voluntary choice. Can’t wait to get lower insurance rates? Fear not.
