Whether you are going from point A to point B, from Vegas to L.A. or from work to home, a few simple car options can make your trip less routine and more awesome.
3 Car Options That Make Travelling More Fun
Certain upgrades deal with performance and power like special editions or sixcylinder engines over the standard four. Others are more cosmetic like lowprofile tires or a sunroof.
I love music when I’m driving. So for me, the auxiliary option, or better yet iPod jack is something I look for when car shopping and even in a roadtrip rental. Even with an MP3 compatible CD player, you are limited to 100+ songs. Having the jacks gives you access to every song in your playlist (or MP3/iPod player). It saves fiddling with CDs and the frustration of having a disc skip.
Steering wheel mounted controls
Steering wheel mounted controls also add to the enjoyment level of a car. To have total control of your music, cruise control and phone just add an extra level of fun to the car, especially over a long period.
Some people aren’t a fan of electronic shifting but I love it. I love driving a real standard as well but the electronic shifting, where you don’t have to worry about a clutch, gives you the best of both worlds.
On a long roadtrip, I want everything to be perfect. For me, a perfect roadtrip includes great company, great music and great car. And the great car includes everything I just listed. Be sure to check out this post about car dashboard lights.
