The best cars for Infotainment, connectivity and electrics

Driver Power asked UK new car buyers what they thought of their cars' connectivity and tech, here are the top 10 highest rated

  • Covering: Audio and entertainment system, smartphone connectivity, built-in satellite navigation, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, user-friendliness of the controls, visibility and sensitivity of the touchscreen displays
  • Winner: Skoda Karoq
  • Score: 92.01%

The Infotainment category covers a very wide range of criteria, including audio quality, smartphone connectivity, sat-nav, heating and air-conditioning, the user-friendliness of the controls, and touchscreen sensitivity and visibility.

The category-winning Karoq did well in all of these sub-categories, but its biggest successes were for its heating and air-conditioning system, its user-friendliness, plus how easy its screen is to see.

The second-placed Kia Sportage also did well, especially when it comes to the user-friendliness of its controls and the sensitivity of its touchscreens. Another Kia – the current-generation Ceed – earned a podium place in the Infotainment category. This car gained good marks in the sat-nav sub-category and was rated especially highly for its smartphone connectivity. Your favourite sat-nav was the one found in the Volvo XC40, though, while the Hyundai Ioniq was the car that you found it easiest to achieve a stable smartphone connection with.

“The Bolero audio system in the Karoq uses an eight-speaker set-up and offers superb sound quality. Apple CarPlay works seamlessly with it, allowing me to easily connect my iPhone.”
