The Best New-Car Features Of 2013

September 3, 2013
Some of the best ideas need no explanation, and many are relatively simple—things that make you ask, why didn't anyone come up with this before?

That’s probably what you’re going to beam after first encountering a couple of our best features for 2013—Nissan’s Easy-Fill Tire Alert in the Altima, and Honda’s LaneWatch in the Accord.

How do you parse out the best from the rest of the options list? The best features are simply the ones that make your motoring easier, safer, and more convenient, without detracting from the experience when you really want to enjoy driving.

If in doubt, try it out. Take the car out for a test drive and put this feature to the test; beyond the novelty of the first demo or two, it should feel useful, perhaps even lifesaving.

In choosing some of the best features of the year, we’ve avoided pointing only to the most expensive, exclusive features, instead looking at items (and ideas) we soon might see expanding to the market at large.

Click through our choices in the following pages, weighing them in light of your own shopping priorities, and use these as a starting point. And be sure to let us know what you think are the year’s standout features in your comments below!
