Interested in finding out about some of the cool technology that is featured in cars of today? So are we.
Cars. Every guy I know loves to talk about them. Some guys talk about things like torque and horsepower while other look at body kits and rims. Still others evaluate the mpg or the boot space. What fascinates me is the technology found in cars today. We have come a long way from the days of stick shift and manual windows. Electronics have become an integral part of every car now.
I still remember the first time I saw the digital speedometer in my brother’s 1998 Mazda that made me feel like Knight Rider. While we’re still years away from a car that will amuse us with corky conversations, it still fascinates me how far we have come. Things like navigation and bluetooth are pretty much becoming a standard option in the upper-class car segment and its just a matter of time before they trickle down to mainstream.
On that note, I would like to announce our new section- car technology. Like myself, there are plenty of people that want to know more about the technology featured in a car before opening up their cheque books. Things like keyless ignition and rear-view cameras have become as important as important as engine power and boot space.
We have already received our first car- the Volkwagon CC which is a tour-de-force as far as technology is concerned. Look out for our first full-featured article on some of the amazing things this car is capable of before the next newsletter reaches your inbox. Other than cars themselves, this section will also look at some of the after-market products in the upcoming months.
Its a new area for us and as always, it would be a great help if you, our readers, can help us by letting us know what and where to look for. I’m sure that it will be a fascinating ride.
