Here at City Subaru, we are your local Subaru dealership; Perth drivers often ask us for advice about a variety of car related matters. Whether youíre shopping for a new or used Subaru car, there are always features that you would like to have. This is not the focus of this particular article; instead we are going to look at four things that we believe you need in your next car.
1. Apple CarPlay
Obviously, there is a caveat here that you are a person that owns and uses an Apple device. When you have Apple CarPlay support, you can keep your hands firmly on the steering wheel and still have a ton of functionality. A CarPlay supported car will allow you to use your infotainment display as a virtual version of the Siri assistant. This will give you access to features, such as messaging, phone calls, podcasts and music playback. The iPhone will be far easier to use whilst driving once connected via a USB port and navigation will be a breeze.
2. Heated Seats
A car with heated front and/or rear seats used to be a feature that you would only find in a premium or luxury car. Now, heated seats are far more common, and this will make driving in cold weather far more pleasurable. The best heated seats will heat up quickly and then back the heat off to avoid the occupant from feeling uncomfortably hot.
3. Autonomous Emergency Brakes
Autonomous Emergency Brakes (AEB) are a fantastic safety technology that can really make your journey safer. An AEB system will use a series of sensors to give full time attention that a human simply cannot have. The system can make a decision if it feels that a collision is likely and apply braking as required. This is particularly useful to avoid an accident entirely, or in extreme cases, it may mitigate the impact. This equipment is fast becoming a standard feature on a wide variety of vehicle types. This feature may be available on older cars for used car buyers, and itís worth getting if you can find it.
4. Digital Radio
Radio as an in car entertainment option has come along in leaps and bounds in recent years. Digital radio (DAB+) is super clear, and over 1.42m vehicles sold in Australia have had this technology fitted as standard. There are loads of stations available covering a wide variety of different tastes and this is a perfect way to enjoy your commute.
