The year 2020 is just 4 years away. Many novels and old media clippings have predicted that in 2020, we'll have flying cars and floating homes. The hit show "Back to the Future" even predicted hover boards and we've already made that a reality. So let's see what the future has in store for cars!
1. Retractable steering wheels
Make room with the retractable steering wheel. Mercedes unveiled this genius idea with their F 015 concept car. With this, we can free space up for us to get out easier. Plus, it just looks way cooler.
2. Interactive screen displays
Trying to entertain passengers while you're stuck in traffic? The interactive screen display concept will help alleviate backseat boredom and keep your kids entertained for hours on end. Time to say goodbye to bulky DVD head units and tablet holders.
Who even needs drivers anymore, the convenience of a car is to get from point A to point B. Mercedes-Benz's F 015 concept car rids the hassle of actually driving. Look mum, no hands! - or feet, or looking at the road.

4. Flying cars
Travelling far distances is already made seamless with planes replacing ships and now cars. The AeroMobil 3.0 tucks its wings while driving and reveals its wings when taking off on the runway. Needless to say we're going to need an aircraft license for this one.
5. Amphibious cars
Buckle up, we're in for a splash! Amphibious cars are now in the works, with a test model - the WaterCar Panther released over 3 years ago, we can expect our future cars to tackle various terrains like sand, ice and even water!
Ever gotten into a parking spot too tight to squeeze out of? Don't hop off the sunroof just yet, because self-parking cars are already here! Mercedes-Benz's new 2017 E-class car will be able to park itself and all you need is a phone and the app. More brands are already picking up on this idea so just sit back and let your car do all the work for you.
