Our tastes change over the years in many aspects of life, and cars are certainly no exception. You may want to find a car that’s more comfortable to drive , has technical features that are really useful and is a joy to drive. Seems a tall order, right? We’ve found 10 of our favourite cars that fit the bill.

Useful Features to Consider

Today’s cars come packed with lots of clever technology and smart driver assistance systems that can make driving easier and safer for everyone (not just older drivers). Look for a car that’s equipped with:

  • Autonomous emergency braking (AEB)
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • A lane departure warning system and corrective steering
  • Parking cameras and/or sensors – some cars can even self-park as well
  • Blind-spot warning (BSW)
  • Forward collision warning (FCW)
  • Rear cross-traffic warning

Of course, it’s not all about the safety tech. There are also some basic yet useful things you might want to consider, particularly if you have limited mobility. You may want a car that offers:

  • An easy drive
  • Simple and easy to reach controls
  • Easy access
  • Intuitive use
  • Lots of space and comfort
  • Great visibility
  • A higher ride height for a commanding view of the road
  • Excellent headlamps
  • Wider door openings
  • A practical boot with no lip
