Ethan Smail hi mate I just called to tell you that you’re a dick and I don’t really like you okay bye bye and there you have it keyless entry and start keyless entry and star is another modern technology that I really love it’s as simple as putting the key in your pocket you walk up to your car your car knows that you’re its owner so it will unlock for you thank you very much you get in don’t have to faff with a key close the door start our up and off your drive blind spot detection blind spot detection is also a really useful modern technology especially in bigger cars like this kodiak or super expensive cars you obviously have mirrors but mirrors only show you so much of the road if you’re trying to go into the left lane or if you want to pull out into the faster lane and you can’t see a car in your blind spot and there is a car in your blind spot then there will be a little orange or amber lights in the wing mirror itself that will illuminate and tell you hold on buddy there’s something in your blind spots are be careful blind spot detection also means that I don’t need to look over my shoulder quite so much keeping my vision forward in the direction of travel for longer adaptive cruise control radar-guided cruise control is awesome especially on motorway journeys because you don’t need to have your foot on the accelerator or even the brake the way it works is that a radar on the front of the car measures a distance between it and the car in front and then you as a driver can choose how close you want to get to that car for the trade-off with having radar-guided cruise control is that it does make a car look pretty ugly trip computer now the range in the trip computer for me is one of the biggest things that I always have on show in any modern car you can’t always trust these analog dials here so I always like to have a firm digital reading to know how far I can actually go on a tank of fuel and then the average consumption I always liked as well especially in car like this we’ve got a 1.4 liter yes a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine and a Kodiak in a car as big as this the average consumption has been 32 point 1 mpg which isn’t too bad because the cars only done about 500 miles because it’s brand-new fuel economy is going to go up and I look forward to that day I hope you enjoyed that click here to see our last video and here to check out our Black Friday sale where you can get up to 60% of all items
