Manhattan, NY – Thanks to technology, cars keep getting more convenient, especially on the inside!

We visited the 113th Annual New York Auto Show at the Javits Center to check out the latest trends for in-car features.

“It’s exciting, everything is going so hi-tech,” said Mark Schienberg, the President of the New York Auto Show.

Schienberg demonstrated the CUE system by Cadillac.  It is a 3D navigational system.  All you have to do is touch the screen and it allows you to zoom in on the area where you’re going.

Forget about knobs and even buttons, the new Cadillac is all touch all the time.  Even turning the radio on is touch screen-activated and so is the volume!

Over at Acura, Chris Naughton with Acura demonstrated the MDX’s newest display screen that shows real time weather along a programmed route or near your destination.  It will highlight weather concerns along the way, like a flash flood for example, and offer detours to your route.

Honda came up with a workable vacuum inside the hatch of the Odyssey minivan that has a hose that reaches all the way up to the front of the vehicle.

Audi also rolled out a cool new feature, turning one of its cars into a roving WIFI hotspot that accommodates up to eight devices.

The Auto Show opened Friday, March 29th and runs through April 7th and tickets are $15 for adults.
