From the integrated tank cap without removing the cap to the once-in-a-lifetime tank cap Difficult Skoda’s famous inside windshield parking ticket holder was invented: clever little things help a lot. Some details can often be found – we’d like the following seven:
1. Mercedes red light camera
Mercedes has in Row It was first launched and is now installed in all new models: in the times when there is often a 360-degree front camera, assistance and navigation system that knows all the traffic lights, an unknown engineer came up with a brilliant idea. Why is the foreground image not automatically zoomed out and displayed at red light? Since then, standing in front of the red light, you no longer have to turn your head to see red and green.
2. Kia turn signal camera
Hyundai-Kia has also made smart auxiliary use of the cameras already available and comes after the start in Kia Sorento And soon after Hyundai Tucson On more and more mass models: flashing (and partial blind spot warning) activates an external mirror cam image on the corresponding page in the instrument cluster. So you can see the bikes and scooters as well as the curbs.

3. Skoda Search Saver
You can fill in the entire list with Skoda “Simply Smart” details: the ice scraper in the fuel filler cap, the charging plug that can be opened if desired, the screen in the door – and, and, and. What we love about the new Fabia: There are often pen and card holders, but you usually have to look for them first. Here you can find them exactly where you want them – front in the middle.
4. Ford rim guards
At some point, almost every car has unsightly snags on the door edges: the bumper strips are often at the wrong height. And who wants ugly sticky edge protectors from hardware store accessories? One of the cool Ford focus He invented protection that was later partially used elsewhere: when the door is opened, a hidden visor is folded around the edge. This way it looks good with the door closed and still provides a crisp edge.
5. Opel eye saver
LED light matrix It’s cool and much better than a simple automatic main beam off: the high beam always turns on at night – and the system “cuts” the others off the light cone without dazzling them. BUT: On the highway, this doesn’t work for all truck drivers in oncoming traffic. They sit high in the high beam because the sensor “looks down” on the truck’s lights due to the fender. Opel noticed the system and turned it off on the left side on the new Corsa from 105 km / h.
6. Skoda Dream Wiper
Skoda again? Yes, because the idea is good. Hatchbacks get wet in the rain. rear wiper? Then it dries very quickly in a mist spray, usually often even in the interval. So manually turning it on and off over and over again – that’s boring. Except for Skoda, for example in Karoq (picture). If the front wipers work, the back wipers don’t wipe often, but just do it from time to time. This is enough to get a clear view.

7. Peugeot wish keys
frequently We hope the buttons are back, because touch screens have cumbersome menus with transitions and can never be freely configured. in the new 308 from Peugeot But it fits perfectly: a small additional screen offers five freely customizable, beautifully large virtual touch keys. No matter what functions you are currently using, you can always find important functions instantly on the big screen (which can also be freely configured). Please imitate! On the side: The volume knob is also a blessing here, as it is often replaced by the dimmer buttons today.
