Advances in car technology continue to be brought to the market at a blistering pace.
In an era when all cars are pretty good and all cars are pretty safe, these 10 cars, SUVs and pickups stand out as the best of 2018. They advance the state of the art in technology as well as driving refinement and driving pleasure. Life is too short to drive boring cars. That’s why there’s a special place in our hearts for the likes of Audi, BMW, and Lexus for those whom He has honored with affluence.
There’s no hard cap on price but we looked askance at vehicles costing more than $100,000 or roughly 2.5-3X the average transaction price of a new car this year, around $36,000.
If your new car is equipped with adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, or a lane-keeping system, it is locking onto a path toward full autonomy. It’s just not as far down that path as some have suggested we’d be by now. This year, though, an important milestone comes in the form of a BMW 3-Series car that can take all the guesswork out of tricky reverse maneuvers. But now, eyes front for this year’s Top tech cars.
The latest version of Audi’s flagship comes with a wide variety of top level technology, with the highlight being the soon-to-be-introduced autonomous technology for easier driving in motorway traffic. The Audi AI Traffic Jam Pilot could help revolutionise driving in congested traffic, as the car takes over all of the driving functions at speeds up to 37mph and uses a fleet of sensors and guidance systems to ensure you stay on the straight and narrow. It also comes with the latest dual-touchscreen cockpit design that works alongside the Virtual Cockpit display that fits in the instrument binnacle. Safe to say the A8 is leading Audi forward as one of the techiest cars out there.
As the brand’s first all-electric car, the I-Pace needed to knock it out of the park for Jaguar – and in many aspects, it has done just that. It comes with almost 400bhp from its electric setup. It also comes with lots of great tech inside, with four displays in the cockpit alone. Pair that with autonomous tech and the I-Pace could lead the way as an electric SUV, with the battery able to be fully-charged in 45 minutes thanks to fast charging capabilities.
As supercars go, the McLaren 720S is right up there as one of the world’s best and as the latest in the British brand’s Super Series, it is the most advanced. Coming with the Proactive Chassis Control system that allows you to customise the drive and chassis set-up, as well as an awesome rear wing, high-end brakes and the most aerodynamically-efficient body in the McLaren line-up. The driver screen also folds out of the dashboard and works in tandem with the central touchscreen for an involved and advanced driving experience.
As usual, an S-Class is involved in the most advanced cars discussion, and the newly-introduced Maybach version is very suitable here. Coming with a lot of the latest tech Mercedes has to offer, the V12-powered S650 comes with the dual-screen Widescreen Cockpit to offer one of the clearest infotainment systems on the market and Road Surface Scan, which scans the road ahead to set up the suspension properly for the smoothest ride possible. Mercedes also includes Intelligent Drive features, such as Active Proximity Control and Active Steer Assist, as well as Ultra Range LED lights and a touch-sensitive steering wheel to control the infotainment system.
If you’re after a high-end SUV, then there are few challengers to the Range Rover. It has always been the last word in comfort, but the 2018 version could be one of the last in terms of tech. Coming with the Touch Pro Duo central infotainment touchscreens, massage seats in the front and rear, and a plug-in hybrid version, the latest Range Rover really is advanced. With a Wi-Fi hotspot, multimedia screens, a gesture-controlled sunblind, purified climate control system and laser LED headlights, there is little competition to the £80,000+ SUV.
Tesla Model X
The American manufacturer has crammed so much into the all-electric SUV, it’s difficult to know where to begin. But we’ll stick to the main features. A 17-inch central touchscreen, active safety technologies and one of the safest bodies ever built, the Model X is right up there in terms of tech. But the stand-out feature is the AutoPilot system, which is the basis for autonomous driving. In AutoPilot, the car can steer, drive and maintain the distance to vehicles in front – making driving a doddle. It also comes with remote-controlled Falcon doors and it can also be park via your mobile phone – so what’s not to like?
