GM's rear camera mirror will give you a wider view than a traditional mirror and it won't be obstructed by bulky objects or heads on the second row. This technology will also feature in Chevrolet's upcoming Bolt EV.
I'd like to know how the new MX-5 RF's motorized retractable fastback affects the Miata's headroom. I also want to know how quiet it is at highway speeds and, most importantly, how the weight affects the tossable Miata's driving character. My Roadshow colleagues and I can't wait to get this hotly debated machine on the road.
Is it weird that I'm so excited about the next generation of seat technology from Lincoln? Maybe, but the automaker's new 30-way power adjustable seats offer an unprecedented degree of customization to cater to any passenger's unique behind.
Today's hottest tech cars can already park themselves with you behind the wheel. Tomorrow's cars will act as their own valets, parking themselves after dropping off the driver at their doorstep. At least, that's the promise of BMW's "remote valet parking assistant".
The remote valet assistant -- and similar features coming soon from Tesla and VW -- will allow your BMW to guide itself into a garage or parking space and then return to meet the driver later at the touch of a button or app.
This feature will guide the car along a marked highway -- staying between the lane lines and maintaining a safe following distance if a car is ahead of it -- all without the driver's intervention. This is similar to Tesla's Autopilot technology.
