    New Car Innovations

    Weighing your options in

    a world of technology

    By Anna Taylor

    For the Longmont Times-Call

    When shopping for a new car there are

    many attributes you may take into account:

    price, color, engine size and so on. But with

    numerous options out there it can be hard

    to wade through the technological jargon

    and figure out what new features are impor-

    tant for your lifestyle. Here is a breakdown

    of some of the newest car innovations that

    may just help you find your perfect ride.

    Fuel Friendly, Earth Friendly

    With the price of gas skyrocketing and

    more attention on the wellbeing of the

    world, one of the biggest features of a car

    that is important to many new buyers is fuel

    consumption.

    Of course with the price of gas and oil

    the Nissan Leaf, which is an electric vehicle,

    has gotten a lot of attention, as well as the

    smaller, more compact cars which get up-

    wards of 34 miles per gallon, says Bob Tay-

    lor of Valley Nissan in Longmont. Theres

    also a PEZD vehicle from Subaru which is a

    partial zero emissions vehicle which is a

    very environmental vehicle.

    While electric and low emissions cars are

    the best bet for making your commute more

    green, other options, such as hybrid vehi-

    cles, also incorporate cutting edge technolo-

    gy to get the most out of your fuel tank.

    The new Sonata Hybrid uses a parallel

    hybrid system which is different because it

    can run entirely either on the electric motor

    or the gas engine, explains Justin Smith, a

    sales representative at Longs Peak Hyundai

    in Longmont. It can run up to 74 miles per

    hour on just the electric engine.

    This is vastly different from hybrids of the

    past, which were known for getting great

    mileage around town but only average on

    the highways.

    Not ready to spring for a hybrid or elec-

    tric? Check to see if the vehicle youre look-

    ing into is a fuel flex vehicle, which can run

    on regular gasoline or E85 (a mixture of up

    to 85 percent ethanol). You can look up the

    VIN of the vehicle online or sometimes

    these vehicles have labels that indicate fuel

    flex capabilities.

    Safety First

    While some buyers may be interested in

    finding the best mpg for their buck, others

    may be more interested in finding the safest

    ride on the market.

    One of the big things that happened after

    the Toyota recalls is that the Nissans now

    feature a smart pedal which disengages the

    vehicle if any issue occurs, Taylor explains.

    This new technology monitors your vehi-

    cle to dodge any unwanted accidents due to

    malfunctions or mechanism failures a

    comfort to know when shuffling family

    members around town or carpooling with

    coworkers.

    Every one of our vehicles comes with a

    standard safety package that includes six

    airbags, traction control and stability con-

    trol, Smith says. And many of our vehicles

    are IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway

    Safety) top safety picks.

    to prevent hitting other cars and alerts that

    show icy or slippery conditions are some of

    the features that are being incorporated into

    the newer car models.

    Tech Savvy Tools

    Another huge factor for many car buyers

    today are the accessories that keep them

    jamming to their playlists, connected to

    their social circle and getting directions to

    their destinations at the touch of a button.

    One thing that is very popular with

    some of the younger consumers is the new

    electronics in the radio such as Bluetooth,

    MP3 hookups and navigation systems,

    Taylor says.

    Many of the newer vehicles have com-

    pletely wireless systems that download your

    contacts and playlists directly to the car and

    some are even completely controlled by the

    drivers voice.

    Most of our vehicles now come with a

    Bluetooth system, Smith says. Also, buy-

    ers dont need to buy a navigation system

    because it comes standard in many of our

    vehicles.

    Some of these systems, such as Mobis,

    come with a 40 gigabyte hard-drive which is

    much faster, more accurate and have 50 mil-

    lion points of interest that make finding

    your destination easy.

    With the numerous vehicle choices, and

    hundreds of new innovations to make your

    drive more enjoyable, the most important

    thing is looking at what your biggest priori-

    ties are for buying a new car. As Smith says,

    All buyers have different motives.

    So weather you want the highest gas

    mileage or the top-of-the-line gadgets, there

    are plenty of options in the new car line-up

    that can satisfy any new car buyers needs.
