Think back five years.
The year was 2012. It wasn’t that long ago, but in terms of advancements in the auto industry, it was an eternity. After doing a quick Google search for “car trends 2012,” I found a quaint little article from January of that year in the USA Today with the headline “Five auto trends that will shake up 2012.”
The article mentioned things like stop/start engine technology, multiple air bags, smaller gas-powered engines, and simple infotainment controls.
Earth-shattering stuff, right?
Compare that list to what to expect for 2017 and you’d think we jumped ahead 20 years, not just five. Here’s where we are now.
