Auto 101: New car tech

Radar cruise control, automatic high beams, lane departure alerts

SAN ANTONIO – In this Auto 101 update, we'll show you some of the latest smart technology in new vehicles. 

"There's a lot of new technologies that have come out in the last few years in regards to safety, multimedia and other premium or connected services as well that have enhanced the driver experience for that owner," said Justin Boone, new car sales manager at North Park Toyota of San Antonio. 

New vehicle safety technology:

  • Pre-collision and pedestrian detection
  • Radar cruise control
  • Lane departure alerts
  • Automatic high beams
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Bird's eye view camera​​

Even with all the safety features in modern vehicles, you still need to maintain control over their vehicle and never take your eyes off the road and try not to be distracted.

"As technology evolves they will make more of these features that are options right now more standard," Boone said.
