The Hottest Auto Trends for the 2019 Model Year
It seems like the 2018 models just came out, but the 2019 model year is right around the corner. Automakers around the world are delivering creative and luxurious innovations like never before. The new model year has so many exciting things in store for you, so here's a little preview of what to expect from your favorite manufacturers.
Increased Focus on Crossovers
More and more Americans are choosing to up-size their vehicles to accommodate their growing families. However, rather than going with minivans as many families did in the past, modern customers are looking for something that is better-suited to an active lifestyle. In response to this changing demand, automakers are coming out with more crossover vehicles than ever before, like Acura's redesigned RDX and Subaru's brand new three-row Ascent SUV. Whether you are a 9-to-5 commuter or a weekend warrior, you can find something that tickles your fancy in 2019's newest offerings.
Even More Hybrid Vehicles
Hybrid vehicles are no longer just for the super-rich. The latest incarnations are surprisingly affordable and look just like their gas- and diesel-powered counterparts. Lexus, for example, just introduced its new subcompact UX hybrid SUV, and the popular Honda Insight now comes in a sedan structure. In addition, Tesla is no longer the only major player in the electric car game; Jaguar and Porsche are now offering electric cars: the I-Pace and Mission E, respectively. Whether you choose hybrid or electric, you'll save money at the pump and do your part to preserve our precious environment for future generations of drivers.
Innovative New Safety Features
Automotive safety technology continues to advance, and this trend isn't going away anytime soon. More and more manufacturers are entering into the self-driving car space, although this technology isn't quite road-ready just yet. Until we can all just sit back and relax while our cars take us where we need to go, we can take solace in the plethora of safety features offered in the latest models. Adaptive cruise control, lane assist, parking assist and more are becoming standard for new models. As technology progresses even further, we can expect even greater things to come in the future.
