Innovation has been a thick and fast procedure within the automotive industry since the likes of the three-point seat and airbag, aiming to promote safer and greener motoring. The automotive industry is Europe’s largest investor in research and development, propelling the industry forward and aiming to deliver more sustainable motoring for centuries to come, spending $20 billion a year in the hope of doing so.
The coming decade highlights the greater refinement of MPV (multi-purpose vehicles), cars that not only boast the latest in driver safety but also the greatest flexibility, covering a wider range of weather conditions.
Innovation For The Latest Generation
- New HID headlamps with daytime running features allow your car to be seen day or night and are also good for twilight transition periods where it’s still light enough for a driver to see. This, of course, potentially results in the driver forgetting to turn on their headlights and making themselves more susceptible to other drivers not seeing them. Further to this, these adaptive HID headlamps swivel in response to the driver’s steering to better illuminate winding roads in the dark. In extremely poor weather conditions, washers on the headlamps help to clear any built-up material that may be interfering with the headlamp’s effectiveness.
- Tyre pressure monitoring system to help the driver more accurately identify when their tyres are too low, which can be seen in the new Grand Cherokee for sale.
- Latest in eco diesel technology, delivering cleaner diesel emissions, resulting in less CO2 pollution overall. Greater refinements also allow for the engine to generate greater mileage per tank of fuel, assisted further with new 8-speed transmissions, boasting a 45% improved crawl rate.
- A new Selec-Terrain traction control system giving you five modes to select, tackling any condition, including snow and sand.
- Blind spot monitoring, using dual-radar sensors to monitor driver blind spots, illuminating with a noise in the corresponding car mirror to let the driver know a car is too close.
- Latest in storage innovation. Improved storage systems allow for seats to fold directly into the floor with headrests which recline into the seat itself, resulting in greater car storage space. Of course, this also works in reverse. When the seats are in an upright position, in-floor bins allow for the accommodation of luggage.
