When you ask the average automotive journalist what tech the average car will have in 10-15 years, he'll tell you to look at the Mercedes S-Class. Apparently, in 2028 the average car will have:

  • The cabin will feature two 12.3" touchscreens for the driver and passenger.
  • 300 LEDs in the cabin mean the cabin can be lit in seven colors and dimmed in four separate zones.
  • It's the first car with no traditional light bulbs.
  • Front-mounted cameras scan the road ahead so that the computer controlled suspension knows what's coming.
  • The S550 will be powered by a 4.7L twin-turbo V8 that makes 449 horsepower and 516 ft-lbs of torque.
  • There will be five different seating arrangements, including reclining rear seats or a business console in the back.
  • Four zone climate control.
  • Media controls can be accessed from any seat.
  • Intelligent headlights shine hi-beams all the time, except at other cars.
  • Heated and cooled front and rear seats, steering wheel, and arm rests.
  • Stop & Go Pilot keeps you in your lane and travelling at a safe speed in traffic.
  • 24-speaker sound system.

Nothing much, just all of that madness.
