There’s no denying that 2014 was a very good year for the car industry. Consumer confidence is up, the economy is making a rebound, and auto manufacturers are investing in a variety of new, exciting technologies.
We are excited to see the auto industry continue to boom in 2015, led by several exciting trends.
According to forbes.com, here are some of the 2015 car trends you should be on the lookout for:
More Subcompact SUVs Forbes expects that we’ll see a variety of additional options targeted at a younger demographic that’s looking for a little adventure. These small SUVs offer a ton of potential, with the off-roading capability of their larger counterparts in a compact, nimble size ideal for city streets. The popularity of Honda’s own HR-V will be a big influence on this new wave
Pickups. Do pickups ever get old? In America, we can count on the pickup truck to be a popular choice year after year. Competition within the pickup segment is at a peak, and the Honda Ridgeline continues to be a strong choice with its roomy cabin, durable bed, innovative truck compartment, and two-way tailgate.
In-Car Technology. After style and fuel economy, in-car technology is one of the most important factors for car shoppers. The HondaLink infotainment system allows users to easily and seamlessly connect their Honda vehicle with their smartphone, tablet, or laptop, keeping drivers connected on the go.
Green Technology. Efficient, environmentally-friendly technology will never go out of style. Many different auto manufacturers are investing in new powertrain technologies and experimenting with alternative fuel sources that could put our dependency on gasoline behind us. Honda is prepared to show its new FCV fuel-cell concept at NAIAS this month. In addition, Honda is a leader in the hybrid and plug-in hybrid segments with the Honda Accord, Insight, CR-Z, and Civic hybrids.
