By Staff Writer February 27, 2019 490

The car shopping experts at Edmunds recently announced the winners of this year’s Edmunds Tech Driven Awards. The second phase of the 2019 Tech Driven Awards specifically honor the automakers that have done the best job at integrating state-of-the-art technology into vehicles currently available for sale.

“While it’s exciting to envision how the automotive industry might look in a decade, what’s really impressive is the pace at which automakers are incorporating next-generation technologies into current vehicles,” said Alistair Weaver, editor-in-chief at Edmunds. “Our Tech Driven Awards are designed to give shoppers an inside look at the coolest automotive innovations they can buy now.”

The winners are:
• Most Innovative New In-Car Feature - Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) The MBUX system sports intuitive natural language voice control, augmented reality heads-up navigation, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

• Most Innovative New Engineering Technology Feature - GMC MultiPro Tailgate With multiple configurations, the MultiPro Tailgate offers more flexibility than standard tailgates, providing enhanced utility for a variety of uses, from loading heavy cargo to tailgating at the big game.

• Most Innovative New Safety or Driving Aid - Subaru DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System DriverFocus uses an in-car camera to detect if the driver becomes distracted or drowsy, and can even slow the vehicle to a stop after repeated ignored warnings.

The winners were announced in January at CES 2019.
