With all the sour news going on, it’s nice to know that there are some beams of light here and there. Although the auto industry is putting a pause on things to help stop the spread of COVID-19, automobile reviewers and publications don’t have to slow down in the digital age. Recently, the well-known name Kelley Blue Book finished putting together some lists, their usual “Best of” for each car segment, and that includes family cars. It doesn’t seem like anyone can get enough of the large SUV from Kia Motors, the 2020 Kia Telluride, recently winning the Automobile All-Stars award, the “Triple Crown” of Automobile Awards, and the 2020 MAMA Family Vehicle of the Year (held by the Midwest Automotive Media Association). Doesn’t take a genius to guess that Kelley Blue Book also put the 2020 Kia Telluride on their list of the “12 Best Family Cars”.

A 3-row SUV with a lot of possibilities, the Kia Telluride is the new vehicle for active families who are always on-the-go and in need of the extra space. Kelley Blue Book was sure to focus on the number one reason the Kia Telluride makes for a great family car – safety. Along with amazing car warranties, Kia Motors is all about keeping passengers safe, and their latest vehicles come with an assortment of safety features and more advanced safety options. Standard in all 2020 Kia Telluride models is the Kia’s Drive Wise package, an assortment of safety systems to help keep rides in the SUV incident-free.

Mitsubishi Uses Augmented Reality to Help Explain Vehicle Tech

Miami Lakes Automall Mitsubishi Augmented Reality App

With consumer and automotive technology on the up swing, automakers are starting to get more involved in the digital age to connect with their consumer base. In 2016, when the Kia Niro was still on the production line, Kia advertised their hybrid crossover with a Facebook Messenger bot, the Niro Bot, to answer questions about the vehicle. In early 2018, soon after the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL debuted, Jeep also released their “New Jeep Adventure App”, a virtual reality app that allowed consumers to configure, take pictures of, and virtually sit inside their own Jeep Wrangler JL. Now, Mitsubishi Motors is doing something similar to continue to raise sales for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV by implementing augmented reality in dealerships, starting with Canada.

Canada is part of the North American market, although they may get various versions due to different federal regulations and what not. Why Mitsubishi is taking this technology to our neighbors of the north first is anyone’s guess, but it’s still a neat feature that can travel down to us in the next year or so. The augmented reality Mitsubishi dealerships will be using is actually an app developed for Mitsubishi North York, Ont.-based St. Joseph Communications.

The app is used to help sales people explain to customers the technology of the 2018 Outlander plug-in hybrid electric utility vehicle. All a salesperson needs to do is point the tablet towards a part of the plug-in that’s visible, say, the front tire. Once the app registers and locks into place, the app then allows the viewer to do a virtual walk around to see the vehicle from different positions via hyper-accurate tracking and registration coding techniques with tracking markers.

Future Technologies in the Auto Industry

Miami Lakes Automall Future Technology Auto Industry

Time to do a little review and look towards the future. With the way things are going in the auto industry, we’re steadily taking steps towards bigger and better vehicles. New technology springs up from Mitsubishi every now and then, their Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is heading towards dealerships, and with the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi Alliance, there are plenty of high hopes of what’s to come with their Alliance Venture concerning Robotaxis and future hybrids. With all that in mind, what other technologies are going to shape the auto industry in the coming years? Let’s see.

Autonomous Self-Driving Vehicles

This one is obvious. It’s the first step towards showing the world autonomous self-driving vehicles can work if done right. We can’t say much for self-driving vehicles like those run by Uber, but the Chevrolet Bolt EV has had a wonderful track record when it comes to its autonomous fleet, and many other brands are trying their own take on self-driving vehicles, Mitsubishi Motors included. If you didn’t see their two concepts at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, take a look.
