The “New F7” might not be the most creative name for BYD’s latest sedan, but the Chinese car rolls out with an impressive laundry list of technology features not normally found on budget-friendly family haulers. The New F7 is BYD’s new take on the original F7, which itself was an impressive car. It sported a dual-clutch transmission, a smart key system that provided car location details, a voice-controlled sound system, and a decent in-dash infotainment system.

Now the New F7 (literal in its nomenclature, for now) is packed with adaptive xenon headlights, a heads-up display, a 10.2-inch LCD touchscreen in the dash, a 12.1-inch LCD screen for the gauge cluster, 12 airbags, a 500 GB removable in-dash hard drive, a panoramic-view camera system, a smart-key embedded in a wrist watch, and a literal remote controller for parking from a distance.

For several years now, BYD has been trying to break into the North American market and it seems the automaker is closer than ever. Whether that will happen within the next few model years has yet to be determined, but with technology-laden cars like the New F7, it might be easier than ever.
