This year’s crop of new cars are packed with high-tech systems such as Acura’s cordless charging tray for phones and a 7-inch screen to monitor all vehicle systems. Lexus offers a smartphone app that transforms your phone into the ultimate remote control to unlock, lock or start the car; parents of teenagers will like the ability to set maximum speed and mile limits. Hyundai’s Ultra Heads-Up (HUD) technology allows you to monitor speed, GPS directions and even blind spots. Mercedes-Benz’s Collision Avoidance System lets you know if you come too close to another car by vibrating the steering wheel to get your attention.
