1. Dead Pedal
A dead pedal is a useful tool for both automatic and manual transmission vehicles. This is a feature you didn’t know you had until you tried it. Most of the time, especially in an automatic transmission, there is no preset position to stay on the left foot. It will be challenging to keep your foot on the footwell in the same spot without the dead pedal.
2. Rear Seat Headrests
As a driver you may not be able to figure it out, but the rear seat headrest is one of the top comfort features that need to be standardized in modern cars. These rear seat headrests not only provide much-needed comfort to the neck of the rear occupants, but also protect it.
3. Steering Mounted Controls
Let’s say you distract yourself from the steering wheel and lean towards the center to make sure you keep your eye on the road and have to work hard to increase or decrease the volume. The steering mounted controls help a lot in doing so and are quite comfortable too.
4. Day/Night Internal Rear View Mirror
The most irritating and dangerous thing to do while driving at night is the headlights of oncoming vehicles and the vehicles behind us. A day/night internal rear view mirror dims the glare of oncoming vehicles. It can be helpful if the exterior rearview mirror has this feature.
5. Power Windows
Let’s say you just buy a new car in 2022 and you have to move the lever on the door to raise the window. You will sometimes feel embarrassed because of not having this feature. Power windows are more than a necessity in this era of cars, with even more advanced and great technical features.
6. Central Door Locking
You don’t want to lock the door with your key, as with manual windows. To save you from this hassle, there is a simple and comfortable yet important feature called central locking system. It is not only comfortable but also safe.
7. Power Steering with Tilt and Telescopic Adjust
Power steering feature has become common in every car, but tilt and telescopic adjust seems to be another comfort feature that needs to be standardized. Driving with comfort is a very important thing. Tilt adjustments are standard in some cars, but telescopic adjustments are also available in cars above Rs 10 lakh.
8. Automatic Climate Control
There are also some cars that get 3-zone or 4-zone climate control, which sets different temperatures and maintains it for different people in the same car. Automatic climate control can be made standard for the segment of Rs 7 lakh.
Navigation is one of the very important things to reach your destination and it is not always that you will know the route whether it is in the city or other places. At present people use their phones and use them for navigation. But sometimes the attention gets distracted when looking at the phone.
10. USB and Bluetooth systems
Whatever the size and power of your car, you can’t spend much time without music in it. The base models of the cars also don’t have a single-din music system and surprisingly don’t even have speakers. But companies should provide USB and Bluetooth systems in the base model as well.
