Looking Ahead: The Best New Car Features for 2013?

The editors of Edmunds’ InsideLine surveyed tech-related features for 2013 vehicles — and picked their top nine.

As noted in the piece, some of the innovations shown may only be in a few models, but you can expect them to be offered in more cars over time, e.g. park assist.

Automatic seat temperature control isn’t exactly a heart-grabber but other items like the tablet-style center stack control interface, as found in the Tesla Model S, will have your salivary glands working.

In the “about time” category, you have the foot-operated, touchless liftgate which the Ford Escape shows prominently in its TV ads. But our favorites have to be the back-up collision intervention system and passenger-side mirror-mounted blind-spot camera.

Of course, this article falls a little short when it comes to mentioning the connected car and features like those offered by the Viper SmartStart. But, keep in mind, this article is mainly excluding aftermarket mods, etc.
