With the high level of customizations and modifications being done by people all around me, I thought of compiling a list of features that one would like. Here are some features that I would like - 1- A proper bottle holder - Yes, not in the door pocket, not around the gear shift, probably on the dash, but a proper bottle holder with clasps that does what it states, Holds a Bottle. - Should be easily accessible while driving, accommodate all sizes and preferably have a blower around it cooling the bottle. 2- Longer Seat Belts - Face it, the average weight in nearly every country is going up. And people tend to get stuck with short seat belts. For safety's sake, make them longer. 3- Windows with Built in Blinds - Especially after the recent SC ruling. Something like this - Manufacturers can install these for about 4-5000 Rs more. Save us the hassle of ripping open the linings on our brand new cars. Add this and charge 10,000 Rs. Oh and while we are at it, expandable sun visors would be a boon. And Sun Blinds for the front windscreen, that can be simply pulled up from the dash and hooked onto the ceiling. Useful when parking in the Sun. 4 - At least 2xUSB ports - For charging our portable devices. The lighter socket is too bulky and so is the convertor that has to plug into it. 5 - Do away with the Lighter Socket - Its a hangover of the 80s with Ash-trays and lighting points. Not needed! 5 - Better still, have a 110V/220V - 100W power point - This one is a must. For charging laptops, Cameras, Camcorders, and probably a small chiller, a power point would be a blessing in a car. Especially with the number of gadgets/gizmos one carries. 6 - Wi-Fi - Which is present in bigger machines, but I would love it if My car had a Tata Photon/Airtel/Sometel Wi-Fi Network, that I could simply log on to when I sit in my car. Saves battery life on my phone, and provides much faster speed. Won't bore the other occupants while traveling as well, they'll all be busy doing Facebook or WhatsApp. High end cars do offer this, but about time one Manufacturer takes all this, puts it into a small car, and launches it as the ultimate youth wagon or something. 7 - GPS Tracker - Ability to track, monitor, immobilize and lock/unlock the vehicle remotely. This will increase vehicle security Multi-fold. There are 3rd Party devices, but why cut your wiring, when this can be made a regular feature. 8 - Compulsory Mileage indicator - So that we are made aware of our running, and might just eeke out that much distance out of each liter of fuel. 9 - Horn De-activation in special zones - Hospitals, Traffic Intersections, places of worship etc. A zone can be marked out by the authorities, using a special signal that the vehicle responds to. This disables the horn for that zone. At best use your headlights. We as Indians really really need this feature. 10 - Notification of Emergency Vehicles - Same principle, but installed on Ambulances and Fire Trucks. A light illuminates on the Dash when they are close, so that you know you have to give way, way in advance. These are some of the ideas I could think of. They can charge maybe 70,000-90,000 over a regular model and provide these features. These gadgets are cheap, Installing them is a PITA when done the aftermarket way. And most won't mind such features also. If only some manufacturer would listen and do a case study on this! What feature would you like in your next car?
