Will technology impact your next car purchase? [Video]

Posted on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 3:54:17 PM

Cars are getting far more technologically advanced as the days pass, with many manufacturers competing in a race to create the safest, most comfortable and entertaining vehicles in the marketplace. New technologies continue to have a greater impact on consumer purchasing decisions, and this is likely to intensify in the next 12 months. 

The Washington Post recently projected electric cars to move even further into the mainstream in 2017, while autonomous features are likely to spread far and wide across the roads of the nation. Interestingly, the news provider also predicted that big data - or advanced iterations of analytics software - is poised to become more common in cars, and this will enable a better user-experience for car owners while they are on the road. An example the publication offered was a virtual assistant that could take commands and control functions in the vehicle. 

If you are looking to purchase a vehicle this year, consider speaking to your local bank about the breadth of automotive financing programs available today. With record access to credit and competitive rates, now is a great time to invest in a new car.
