“Hydrophobic” windows, other than having a cool name, are actually coated glass that stops rain, dirt, and other debris from touching the car windows. Kia started using this tech on its 2015 and 2016 models.

Honda Odyssey includes a built-in vacuum with a hose for people who are interested in keeping everything clean 24/7. This is for all you clumsy people who constantly drop things and spill whatever it is you’re drinking in your cars.

6. To drive or to get a massage?
Being able to warm or cool car seats in cars like the 2015 Kia Sedona is great.
