Today, every new car in the U.S. comes with a backup camera. It’s a federal requirement, and for good reason: These handy displays show what’s behind your car while you’re in reverse, helping you maneuver safely and efficiently, and with much less risk you’ll collide with something that you can’t otherwise see from the driver’s seat.
But some new cars go a step further, offering 360-degree cameras. This technology, which also goes by the term “surround-view monitor” or other similar names, includes a standard backup camera at the rear of the car — but also similar ones at the front and both sides. Drivers can typically choose among these cameras’ views or a bird’s-eye look at the car and all its surroundings, including obstacles, curbs, and pavement striping. If you frequently need to squeeze your car into spaces where it just barely fits, or you’re just not the world’s most comfortable parker, you’ll love having this feature. Here are 10 new cars with 360-degree cameras.
