2020 has been a bad year for the automobile sector. However, there has been a great development in automobile technology. Many exciting tech and gadgets used in automobiles have been developed this year.
Every year, the Indian television NDTV conducts ‘C&B’ awards. Which, the Tech Gadget Viewer’s Choice Award is one of the main categories. The C&B Tech Gadget Award is given to the best new technology used in cars and bikes that have been made public throughout the year.
This year too, cars and bikes are nominated for the title of Tech Gadget. The technology of bikes and cars is as follows.
1. Hyundai Creta’s in-built Air Purifier
Air pollution is increasing everywhere day by day, because of which the air quality is degrading. As the vehicle always runs on the road, the passenger traveling in it can’t be free from the pollution. Keeping this in mind, Hyundai India has done an excellent job. For the first time, they have installed an in-built air purifier in the new generation Creta. With the help of it, the passengers can take purified air and be away from pollution.
2. Kia Sonet sound system with Moodlight and 10.25-inch display
Last year, the car audio system developed a lot. The compact SUV Kia Sonet has used the premium sound system, Bose. The American sound company Bose is known for its excellent quality. The mood light is used in the car cabin. Because of this, the ambiance of the car is perfect. The large 10.25-inch screen used in the dashboard makes it one of the easiest compact SUVs to run functions.
3. MG EZS’s iSmart Virtual Assistant
Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Assistant are great in the digital assistant field. Now, Morris Garages has used iSmart Virtual Assistant in its EZS. It can give an excellent experience in the smart features of the car. Not just dialing a phone number and running the music system will understand the main Asian accents and control various features correctly.
4. Nissan Magnite Digital Instrument Cluster
The recently launched Nissan’s first compact SUV, Nissan Magnite, has many attractive features. Out of which, the digital instrument cluster is the main attraction.

It also has an advanced trip computer to analyze how the car is driven. To have such a feature in a car of such affordable price is a great matter of pleasure for the customers.
5. Royal Enfield Meteor Tripper App
The smart connected feature is now being used on bikes and scooters as well. Royal Enfield, which has been making classic bikes, could not remain untouched.
