Some accessories for your car improve the quality of your journey, others can help you out if you get stuck in a tight spot. With the days drawing shorter and the temperatures dropping lower, there’s never been a better time to consider both. Here’s a rundown of our favourite autumn accessories for your car to keep your journeys both enjoyable and safe.
1. Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Perhaps it’s among the less glamorous items on this list, but this contraption to help you gauge the pressure of your tyres can be invaluable in autumn. That’s because reductions in temperature can have a significant impact upon tyre pressure, thus affecting your grip on the road and your control over the vehicle.
3. Wireless phone charger
This handy little gizmo might seem like car tech from the future – but the future is already here, baby. Forget about bothersome wires getting in the way of the gearstick with this ingenious contraption that can clip onto your air vents and provide both power and a safe sticking place for your phone while on the move.
We know what you’re thinking – surely there must be some mistake? Sunglasses are just for summer, right? Wrong! While there may be less sunshine during autumn and winter, the fact that the sun tends to hang lower in the sky means that it can generate more glare for those behind the wheel… which is why sunglasses are still important.
4. Jump starter
This nifty device really comes into its own as the nights draw in. Colder temperatures can increase the likelihood of your engine needing a little encouragement to get going, which is exactly what this gadget offers.
