Default Re: What features do you wish your car had?

Getting a Dzire Zxi+ in a couple of weeks. There are four features from the Baleno which I wish the Dzire had in addition to it's relatively long list of features:

1) The UV cut window glasses. It would have been a real boon in the sweltering Chennai heat.
2) The electro chromatic rear view mirrors. Not a feature that would be sorely missed, but a nice to have feature nevertheless.
3) The coloured multi information display in between the dials. Again, not a feature that would be sorely missed, but a nice to have feature nevertheless.
4) The CVT gearbox instead of the AMT. This again would have been nice to have, but considering the cost implications, I guess I can understand why this was skipped.

In addition to this I wish the Dzire also had a good center arm rest (not the me too arm rest from the Baleno). Of course I can keep on asking for a lot more features, but those would make the request sound impractical and like a fantasy.

Honda Jazz 2010 model.

I fitted a Blaupunkt HU with Video, USB, bluetooth and navigation as my original HU had none of this. I also have a rear camera and rear parking sensors which I feel are must have.But I still miss Android Auto.

Apart from that, list of features I miss and should be present in my next car -
Seat height adjustment
Thumb contours for steering wheel
Auto climate control
Rear AC vents
Dual charging/USB ports
boot light
map lights
cornering lights
projectors or LED headlights
Tinted glass factory-fitted
Speed-sensing auto door lock/unlock

Also, good to have
TPMS
Start stop button
Sunroof
Auto fold mirrors
Telescoping steering
curtain airbags
auto dimming IVRM
auto dimming OVRM
auto wipers
auto headlights

A feature that I would like to have is inbuilt Fuel log. This is very hard to maintain externally if the car is used by many drivers. The inbuilt fuel log should have an option to enter Fuel cost and location too. The fuel consumption could be calculated based on this and I am sure this would be much more accurate and trustworthy than what the system calculates these days. And ultimately help us in finding out the actual cost per km driven rather than kmpl.

Love everything about the car. It is an awesome package.
One thing I wish the car had would be a Tyre Pressure Monitor (TPM) display.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Alpha CVT. Though I don't have much of complaints with the car as I was fully aware of what I am buying. There are some wish list.

1. Hope the Car came in 1.0 Booster Jet with 6-Speed DCT like the European spec.
2. Rear Disc Brakes.
3. Better Interior Quality & more solid Exterior.
4. Usable Center Arm Rest both in front & rear seats.
5. Cruise Control.
6. 6 Airbags rather than 2.
7. Better rear seat cushioning and side bolstering in the front seats(I have removed the seats for putting new seat covers, Maruti has used Thermocol for the first layer and then a layer of Cushion over the top. Terrible cost cutting idea).
8. Better OEM Music system with factory fitted sub-woofer.
9. This is a wish to Apple Carplay-Wish Google maps can be used in Apple Carplay.
