  • Buick Terraza

    The 2006 Buick Terraza minivan can store music, movies and games on its 40GB hard drive. With its "Phat Noise" system, all three mediums can be played at the same time. Wireless headphones let back-seat passengers playing games drown out front-seat music.

    The Terraza also has a new feature for drivers who have trouble parking. The rear bumper has sensors (below left) that signal the driver (below right) how close to park.

  • Toyota dB

    Toyota coyly calls this model a "car-shaped music player." The Toyota dB, a compact hatchback, is geared toward customers who want to completely immerse themselves in sound.

    A subwoofer is located in the center console, and eight additional speakers surround the interior of the car. The dB also includes 11 flashing lights located on the speakers, cupholders and door trim. This sound blaster is currently only available in Japan.
