9) BMW Smart Bumper

We challenge you to try and crash this self-parking BMW i3. It is practically impossible as it uses lasers to detect any incoming hazards, auto-braking when it detects the driver is about to bump into something. At speeds below 15km/h the i3 is unscratchable making car park scrapes a thing of the past.

7) Audi Tablet

Audi have only gone and launched their very own self-designed tablet. The 10.2-inch Android tablet is wrapped in aluminium, giving it a weighty and premium feel. The device is fully integrated into the Audi Q7 with every little thing being so well thought out for handling tech in a car. For example, the high resolution display is designed to reduce micro vibrations and a screen you can view even in direct sunlight.

6) BMW OLED rear lights

The rear lights on the majority of cars leave a hell of a lot to be desired: they're large, eat power and the reflectors are visible from all angles. The extra thin, flexible, design led, organic LED rear lights use a fraction of the power of ordinary lights. These super-efficient OLED tail lights will be available on all BMW's within 18 months.

2) Harman ISZ

Smarter cars mean different multimedia devices. One downside to this is the extra 'noise' this creates in the car environment.  The Harman ISZ brings order to the car with individual sound zones: therefore noise is cancelled around each occupant and their media. This means a distraction free zone with no need for headphones again.
