July 28, 2016

There are so many tech and convenience options today, it's hard to keep up with them.

This week, Forbes compiled a list of the top 10 coolest new features on 2017 models. They include everything from highly-adjustable seats, to 7-camera guidance cameras. Check out the full list below.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and RydeShopper to quickly see the best deals being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
