Top Advanced Technology and Feature Priorities and Preferences in Passenger Vehicles

Rapid advancement of technologies and their declining costs provide new opportunities to meet the increasingly stringent emission and safety standards of vehicles and significantly enhance the driving experience. Several technology alternatives and pathways are available for meeting desired functional and performance goals, some of which come with cost and/or other tradeoffs.
