Automobile technologies have advanced to what used to be something only seen in the movies. Some cars are so technologically advanced that they can drive themselves, but most tech savvy vehicles on the road still need humans to drive them.
If you’re looking for an affordable, technologically advanced vehicle to keep you safe on the roads, you’ll find plenty to choose from in this lineup. Here are a few of the most affordable, high tech vehicles that are hot on the market this year.
The hybrid 2018 Nissan Leaf features an upgraded and redesigned electric powertrain, and Nissan won’t sell you short on excellence.
