You might think that your car’s keyless lock system or Apple carPlay feature is pretty impressive, but in just three short years, the tech that the average car features could leave your motor looking…well a little behind the times to say the least. Just take a look at the tech that you can expect to see in the average new car in 2020 if you don’t believe me…
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you can’t have failed to have heard of driverless vehicles. Uber, Google and many other companies are working on perfecting the tech that will allow us to be driven by our cars, rather than having to drive them by ourselves, well, many in the industry predict that the first fully autonomous cars will be available on the market by 2020. They’re sure to have a hefty price tag though!
Driver Override Capabilities
If you click here for full features of one of the most popular new cars of today – the Subaru WRX – you’ll notice that it already features some pretty cool tech like rear view reverse cameras, which improve safety, but in the future, you can expect new models to feature something even better – driver override systems which don’t just help you to drive safer and more effectively, but which are actually capable of taking over key decisions to make sure you’re driving is as safe as possible!
You might be reading this post now with a Fitbit or Apple Watch on your arm, tracking your vital statistics and monitoring your health, so it perhaps shouldn’t be all that surprising that companies like Ford are already working on creating health monitoring systems that will be built into the cars of 2020 and beyond. These include things like sensors built into seat belts, and which will be able to measure your body and even monitor your heart rate, taking wearable tech to a whole new level!
Head-Up Display Technology
Head-up display technology or active window displays as they are perhaps more commonly referred to are windshields which feature a transparent display which means that you can monitor your GPS system, check your cell phone and operate other tech without ever having to take your eyes off the road even for a second. If they can be tested and proved to be safe for use, they will be a major leap forward in in-car tech.
No, I’m, not yanking your chain, there really is a good chance that come 2020, If you have a whole lot of money to burn, you may be able to get your hands on your very own flying car! A company in Slovakia is currently developing a vehicle called that could seamlessly take you from the road into the air and back!

If all this tech does become available as predicted, 2020 really will be a great time for us petrolheads to be alive!
