Automakers are waking up to the wellness trend, adding more and more features to prioritize your physical and emotional well-being.
Automakers are fast realizing that for many people, their vehicles are more than just a means to get from point A to point B. Instead, many regard their automobile as their sanctuary, a place of refuge from the chaos of the world—and sometimes the one place where you can just be by yourself during the day. Realizing this, automakers have applied a new emphasis on your physical and mental well-being, whether you’re a driver or passenger. From massaging seats to advanced climate-control systems that can neutralize viruses, there are a host of exciting new features that will elevate your wellness from the moment you step into your vehicle. Here are a few to keep your eye out for.
Mercedes-Benz GLS Air-Balance Package
Total wellness extends to your olfactory senses too. Mercedes-Benz’s new flagship seven-passenger SUV, the GLS, features the optional Air-Balance Package, which promotes well-being through a fragrance generator that emits a Forest Mood scent throughout the cabin.
There’s also an ionizer in the side air duct and an extra filtration system for improved interior air quality.
Genesis G90 Mood Curator
The new Genesis G90 features a system called the Mood Curator, which enables integrated control of features like the ambient lighting, sound system, fragrance system, massaging seats and electric curtains to lift the occupants’ moods. The car offers four different mood modes, including Delight, Vitality Care and Comfort, each of which can be customized for a high level of personalization.
Range Rover Filtration System
The totally redesigned 2022 Range Rover puts a considerable emphasis on your physical well-being with the debut of a pioneering new Cabin Air Purification Pro3 system. Using advanced PM2.5 filtration and nanoe X technology for pathogen removal and allergen reduction, the advanced air-treatment system can even reduce viruses and bacteria including the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Volvo XC90 City Safety
Sometimes the unpredictable can happen, and even the best drivers can be caught off guard. Volvo’s XC90 lowers your stress levels while driving thanks to its City Safety system with pedestrian and cyclist detection. The system acts as a second set of eyes for the driver, alerting you if it detects a potential collision or even applying the brakes in certain situations, ensuring your safety and the well-being of those around you.
Jeep Grand Cherokee L Interior Rear Monitoring Camera
One’s wellness is often interconnected with those we love and care for. The new Jeep Grand Cherokee L brings you peace of mind by allowing you to keep tabs on rear passengers with an available rear-seat monitoring camera. The system projects a high-definition image on the front display so you can always keep tabs on the little ones you love.
Lincoln Aviator Massaging Seats
Lincoln’s midsize luxury crossover takes seating comfort to a totally new level with its perfect position massaging seats. With 30 total positions and five different massages, your physical wellness was top of mind for Lincoln when it designed the Aviator’s innovative stress-relieving seats.
