Jeff's Top 20 essential features in a car...

In this blog entry, I'm covering in my opinion, top 12   20 essential features in a car... 

1) Automatic gearbox / Clutchless Manual / paddle shift (useful especially for driving in KL and Penang)

2) 60:40 split fold rear seats.  Useful for LONG Items/Moving. 

3) Lockable glovebox.  As seen in my Telstar.  My other car, Civic FD2 don't have this feature.

4) Alarm + Immobiliser + Auto central lock (brake = LOCK, Ignition off = Unlock)

5) Security tint film.  4 mil and above. (Can be installed outside).

6) Cruise control.

7) Climate control (Automatic air cond)

8) Reverse sensor

9) Trip computer.  Eg. distance to empty tank, average fuel consumption, outside temperature, travelling time.

10) Audio controlled steering wheel.

11) MP3/WMA/CD player with USB + Aux + Ipod compatible.  And AT  LEAST 6 speakers.

12) Electric Adjustable front driver seat with AT LEAST 2 memory.

13) Electric Sunroof / Panoramic roof.  For brighter cabin.

14)  Variable intermittent wiper with Rain sensor.

15) ABS+EBD+BA+Traction Control.  OR Electronic stability control.

16) AT LEAST 2 Airbags (driver and passanger)

17) ISOFIX Child seat mount

18) Fuel economy (AT LEAST 10km/L)

19) HID headlights + "Follow me home" (headlight on for 30 secs) + Front foglights.

20) Side impact bars.  This features is found in 95% of today's cars.  But in Malaysia, certain National cars does NOT have this features.  This is ESSENTIAL for "Side impact protection".


They are:

1) BMW X5 3.0 Diesel.
2) Peugeot 5008
3) Audi Q7 3.0 Diesel
4) Porsche Cayenne Diesel 
5) Peugeot 3008
6) Peugeot 308 Turbo
7) New Kia Sorento
8) New Hyundai Sonata YF High spec.
