Unveiling the Finest Car Gadgets and Accessories

The automotive industry never rests on its laurels. Consumers want too much, competition is too serious, and there is just too much fun to be had for car manufacturers to sit back instead of creating new and used interesting car additives.

CarHub keeps an eye on what's new and exciting when it comes to car accessories. Because you're busy and keeping up with cars is probably more of a hobby than a job for you (it's both for us), we've compiled a short list of some exciting new car products on the way.

50 Must-Have Innovative Car Gadgets

Find out how these cutting-edge car gadgets can turn even the most boring drives into exciting adventures.

1. Ditch-The-Cord Charging Pads

Charge pads for your car are likely to be a new idea that comes out soon. Though it sounds a little bit outlandish, it's the same as the cell phone charging pad built into many new or used cars today, just bigger. The idea is the same: just put the battery on the charging pad and let it charge; no cables are required.

2. A New Kind of Sunroof

The solar roof continues the long-overdue green revolution in the car sector. Though charging stations and electric cars are a start in the right direction, they still need to use our overloaded electrical grid. So, why not take use of one of the earth's most valuable natural resources? Seems obvious, doesn't it? The reasoning is so good that it's amazing that it took this long. That is correct; we are talking about solar-powered car roofs.


3. No Keys, No Worries

As Bluetooth technology has become common in vehicles, starting your car with your cell phone or wristwatch is no longer so farfetched. It isn't so absurd that Apple included the capability directly in its newest iOS. Once your phone has been designated as your car's digital key, you may remove the fob and keys altogether.

4. HAL For Your Home (and Car)

General Motors and Cadillac have previously cooperated with Amazon to enable consumers to control Amazon Alexa from their vehicles. Your car becomes the conduit for your requests, and Alexa joins you for the journey. Want to switch on the lights before you get home? You can.

5. Real-Time Road Warnings

GPS features will continue to influence how we drive in the future, with real-time information transmitted regarding road conditions. For example, hitting a hazardous patch of black ice will become a thing of the past as GPS automatic sensors send new streams of information capable of telling you what the road ahead contains.


6. GPS Vehicle Tracker & Diagnostics Tool

This high-tech car gadget stands out from other GPS trackers on the market because it is integrated into the Vivint Car Guard, which means it can turn on the lights when the car arrives home, activate outdoor security cameras and record video if somebody disturbs the car while it is in your driveway, and automatically open/close the garage door.

7. 4K Dash Camera

Feeling secure is always critical to your driving experience, so a dashcam is one of the greatest car gadgets to purchase. In addition to recording entertaining videos of you and your friends on a road trip, they may be crucial in the case of an accident, providing proof to law police and insurance companies.


8. A Set of Drop Stop Gap Fillers

This set of drops stop gap fillers will keep your phone from falling into the space between your seat and the console. Plus, you'll never have to give up a french fry (or a bunch) to the gap again.

9. Car Air Purifier

Philips GoPure Compact removes smells and purifies the air inside your car. This high-end automotive air purifier is sleek, modern, and easy to install. It employs a three-layer filtering system to remove up to 99% of dangerous germs, gasses, smoke, and odors from the cabin. It also has an integrated air-particle sensor that displays current air quality.

10. Head-up Display

This head-up display, which uses 3D reflection technology, provides immediate access to critical trip data such as fuel usage, battery voltage, and oil temperature, as well as a series of alerts for things like exceeding the speed limit and engine faults.


11. Travel Mug

It's an improved version of the Carter Move Mug with Slide-lock lid. It fits perfectly in any car's cup holder and has a lid that moves open with the flick of a thumb. Because its walls are double vacuum-sealed, it keeps your drink cold for six hours.

12. Roof Box

A unique roof box is one of those cool car gadgets that can't be missed. The Yakima GrandTour 16 has 16 cubic feet of space, which is enough for all of your family's stuff on the next big road trip, even snowboards and skis up to 185 cm long.

13. Wireless Air Vent Charging Mount

This stylish magnetic car mount from iOttie is made to work with MagSafe-compatible iPhones and cases. It's easy to put your phone in and take it out with one hand, and it has a built-in ventilation system to keep air flowing and heat away. It's small, but it can charge quickly wirelessly up to 7.5W.

14. Smart Tire Safety Monitor

Nonda's newest in-car gadget, ZUS, allows you to monitor tire pressure in real time using your cell phone. With its innovative AccuTemp Algorithm, the smart tire safety monitor identifies slow leaks before they become a problem. It also has an anti-theft locking mechanism and a built-in USB connection for charging other gadgets.


15. 3-in-1 Car Battery Jump Starter

This 1000-amp device has a durable, compact form and unique safety technology that guarantees spark-proof connections and reverse polarity protection. It is compatible with gasoline engines up to 6-liters and diesel engines up to 3-liters, boats, lawnmowers, and other applications.


16. Sunglasses Visor Clip

If your car does not come with a built-in sun visor sunglass holder, it might be worthwhile to get one yourself. This Dualshine Car Visor Sunglasses Holder, wrapped in leather and equipped with a built-in sponge, performs an outstanding job of keeping your sunglasses/eye-glasses scratch-free, accessible, and securely kept on the road.


17. Car Mini Fridge & Warmer

This mini-fridge, which holds six 12 oz. cans, is small enough to sit on top of the armrest in your backseat but strong enough to keep your snacks and drinks cold (or warm) to your destination while attached to the cigarette lighter.

29. Portable Car Desk/Tray Combo
