Surprise Easter Egg Features in Popular Cars: Part 1
Modern automobile usually has very useful features that can make driving and navigating so much easier. But since it is Easter Monday, let us guide you through some surprising Easter egg features in cars you might know or not.
Easter egg is a term used for bonus features that carmakers add into their cars that are not usually obvious. To find these Easter eggs, you must look even deeper into your car’s functionalities.
The term Easter egg is not only used in secret car features but also in video games and movies. Easter egg features are commonly found in Tesla cars. But many other automakers also have these in their cars.
Easter eggs may vary to something fun, something useful, or something sentimental (to the carmaker).
Whatever kind of Easter egg it is, we are glad to share with you this list of surprise car features. We should warn you that not all of the cars on the list are available in the U.S., and you may experience an urge to buy a vehicle just for that Easter egg. Read on to know more:
Look for the Shark
This Easter egg feature is basically aesthetic. But what’s more interesting is the story behind it.
The designers made a dare with his colleagues to insert a hidden shark in the Vauxhall Corsa’s design. The hidden feature can be seen in models from 2006 to 2014.
The Hyundai Veloster is one of the first to have an infotainment system. It has an interactive game called “Blue Max.”
The game catches the driver’s riding habits and turns it into data used in the game. This will help the driver see how well he drives and conserves fuel.
One of the most interesting Easter eggs in the Jeep Renegade is the hidden spider. The realistic spider image is placed near the fuel fill.
Old Willy in the Grand Cherokee
As a tribute to one of its old models, the Jeep Grand Cherokee showcases an engraving of the Old Willys’ front grille in the center of its headlights.
The Z in the Z4
BMW Z4’s exterior design holds the hidden Easter egg feature. This is the shape that you can see on its side profile which forms a Z, as in Z4.
The Welcome Logo
Hyundai Genesis’ Easter egg feature is something so impressive. It is a bar higher than the Easter eggs we have already mentioned.
When you walk near the Genesis, the side mirrors rotate and project the Hyundai logo right in front of your feet. It is a unique way to welcome drivers into the vehicle.
The Jeep Gladiator is an impressive vehicle because of its capabilities and features. Aside from the fact that it is a rugged and stylish Jeep, the Gladiator sports a sentimental Easter egg feature.
At the bed of the Gladiator, you will see a number “419” beside a heart. The number stands for the area code of Toledo, Ohio.
Jeep Gladiators and Wranglers are assembled in Toledo Assembly Complex. What a great way to pay homage to where you came from!
Ice Scraper in the Skoda
The Skoda Octavia possesses a really functional Easter egg feature. It has a hidden ice scraper in the small door that covers the fuel cap.
It is just a tiny scraper that is so handy for scraping ice from windows. This Easter egg should be in every vehicle because it can be very useful in the winter.
Lighting Up the Logo
Though the Dodge Viper does not need another special feature to sell, it is nice to see one in it. The Viper’s Easter egg feature is pretty badass.
Whenever the Viper brakes, the snake logo at the trunk lights up red. This can serve as a warning to other drivers to not get too close, right?
Special Foot Pedals
The longer you drive, the more it becomes second nature to use the foot pedals properly. But it is still great to have a visible reminder of what the foot pedal does.
The Renault Twingo RS has clever foot pedals with play, pause, and stop symbols (like the ones you see in the home video remote). It is a funny and clever way to remind drivers how to use the pedals.
