Manufacturers such as BMW, Porsche, GM, Honda, Audi, Ford and Toyota produce cars with a dazzling array of performance, features and options including safe and comfortable cabin, high-performance lowpolluting engine, computer-controlled ignition, -transmission and -lighting, engine diagnostics, communications and entertainment, navigation, safety and emergency reporting.
