The 2015 BMW i8 is so sporty and technologically advanced that it’s priced well over $100,000. It features a plug-in hybrid system that gets you 22 miles on electric power, and the lightweight carbon fibre body makes it a car that will not be held down. If you’re looking for a sleek looking new car that’s eco-friendly yet gives you a sports car like driving experience, this is it.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 is priced near $100,000, and for good reason. This luxury vehicle provides loads of interior space and an incredibly smooth ride. A large LCD dashboard and LED lights make it look high-tech, but the real standout feature is the new Steering Assist feature, which makes driving easier, particularly in heavy traffic. This is about as close as you can get to a self-driving car in 2015.
Infiniti Q50S Hybrid
The 2014 Infiniti Q50S Hybrid is a lot more affordable than the models above, coming in under $50,000. But what really distinguishes this car from the rest of the tech-savvy vehicles on the market in 2015 is its corner braking and drive-by-wire steering, which both provide incredible handling and lane control. The interface inside the cabin is just as advanced, and you can even use apps within it. Plus, the hybrid technology means you’ll get an average of 30 mpg per ride.
Tesla Model S
The 2014 Tesla Model S is an electric car that’s designed for the 21st century. Providing drivers with the highest range of all the electric cars currently available, this sports car also reaches 60 mph in a mere 4.2 seconds, so it’s ideal for those who want power, looks, and technology. Drivers also enjoy balanced handling, particularly in turns, as well as loads of grip so you never feel like you can’t control the car. Plus, it’s a lot more affordable compared to other high-end technologically advanced options, coming in at around $70,000.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Those seeking a reliable SUV that boasts plenty of technology will enjoy the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, with a friendly price under $30,000. Drivers love the advanced touchscreen interface, built-in navigation and app store, and air suspension, which provides a very comfortable ride. Plus 4-wheel-drive means you can confidently take this truck off-road and through snow.
