You don’t want to miss out on snagging some of these accessories, especially on Black Friday!

Sadly, our crystal ball is offline at the moment. We can’t predict just how much some of these items will be discounted come Black Friday, but we can show you the coolest accessories of 2020 so you know what to look for once the percentages start popping up. If you’re shopping for a loved one or for yourself, these upgrades are more than worth the hype.

    1. Hands-Free: The future is truly now with this Iron Man-style hands-free phone mount, HUDWAY Cast. Once you clip your phone into the mount, your map and phone notifications are projected onto a clear screen in a “heads up display” that not only looks really cool but keeps both your hands on the wheel and your eyes always forward. Plus, this little thing is the first of its kind so if you or anyone you know likes to be first, this is the “it” item for 2020. https://hudway.co/drive
    2. Remote Start: Yes, it’s getting colder and no one is going to blame you for wanting to add a bit of a “magic touch” into your life. There is so much satisfaction when starting your vehicle from the comfort of your home, knowing you’ll be warm as soon as you’re ready. Not all cars come with this remote start option as a standard feature but Compustar has you covered with their add-on kit to make sure you feel just a bit like Harry Potter. https://www.compustar.com
    3. Air Purifier: Masks are just a thing these days and the lingering worry of clean air is on many of our minds. The Philips GoPure Compact 200 air purifier is the easiest way to ensure that 99% of harmful bacteria, gases, smoke, and odors within your vehicle are dealt with and removed by a three-layer filtration system. The GoPure Compact also has a sensor that can show you the current air quality so you can always keep tabs on what you and your passengers are breathing. https://www.usa.philips.com/c-p/GPC20GPX1/gopure-compact-automotive-clean-air-system
    4. Car Vacuum: If you’re like us, you love how satisfying vacuum commercials are. Fortunately, the Dyson V7 Car & Boat handheld vacuum holds up against those super-zoom camera views of dirt and cereal for you to enjoy in your own vehicle. Get rid of whatever is crushed into the fabric of your floor mats once and for all with this powerful yet compact vacuum. https://www.dyson.com/vacuum-cleaners/handhelds/dyson-v7-handheld/dyson-v7-car-boat
    5. Alexa for the Car: Memes aside, Amazon’s Alexa is pretty helpful for a myriad of situations. Add Alexa into your car with the Roav VIVA by Anker. It’s an Alexa-enabled car charger that sits in your cigarette lighter and has over 25,000 intelligent voice functions. Heading home in the dark? You can connect the Roav VIVA to the smart devices in your home, allowing you to pull into the driveway to a cheerily lit front door. Keep an eye on both the VIVA and the VIVA Pro for a great Black Friday deal from Amazon.https://goroav.com/pages/viva
    6. Coffee Maker: It’s 2020 and there is no reason why we can’t have our coffee whenever and wherever we want it, which includes our cars. This is the ultimate gadget for coffee lovers who have to tackle a long drive in the morning and it fits snugly in any cup holder. The Handpress Auto coffee maker plugs right into the cigarette lighter and brews up the perfect cup of Joe in 2 minutes using either grounds or ESE pods. Peppermint mocha, anyone? https://www.handpresso.com/en/handpresso-auto-13.html
    7. Lumbar Support: Pain from sitting for long periods of time (traffic, anyone?) wreaks all sorts of havoc on the lower spine, from professional truckers to the average commuter. It doesn’t matter if your car’s seats are brand new or pushing 12 years old, sometimes we all need a little help. The Everlasting Lumbar Support Pillow is routinely considered to be one of the best options for supporting your back while driving. It boasts rigid memory foam, a washable cover, and durability for long-term use. With the easily adjustable straps, this lumbar pillow from Everlasting is the perfect companion for car rides of any length of time. Your back, and your chiropractor, will thank you. https://www.everlastingcomfort.net/products/back-cushion-lumbar-support-pillow

Whether you’re keeping an eye out for items to cross off your holiday gift list this year or you’re looking to bump up your own vehicle to the next level, any one of these gadgets will elevate a ride in a blend of technology and style. Happy shopping!
