What you need to know

In this Report, Mintel explores car usage frequency for different occasions among different types of car owners. What’s more, Mintel investigates consumers’ attitudes towards the in-car functions they currently have, such as their usage and satisfaction towards them, and the in-car functions they want in the future for their next car.

In addition, we look at consumers’ preference for mobile-connected system like CarPlay or CarLife versus built-in infotainment systems and how this makes more in-car functions necessary.
