Significant strides are being made in research towards security and privacy concerns associated with connected cars. Being a relatively novel research domain, it is crucial to examine the state of the art to formulate future research strategies. The objective of the paper is to aggregate the research progress made in identifying security and privacy concerns in connected cars, and the concomitant solutions. Using systematic mapping study, we reviewed the state of the art to address the research objective. Results indicate that in the last couple of years, there has been an exponential increase in investigation into this research topic. Compromised vehicular communication has received more attention than any other concern, and the popularity has only increased in recent years. A secure system design and infrastructure is the most common solution for all the identified concerns in this paper, but securing communication is the most popular one. Real-world applicability of the devised solutions is debatable, as most researchers have preferred simulations to empirical evaluation. Overall, insecure system design or infrastructure warrants more attention from solution point of view. In this context, the principles of Prevention by Design and Privacy by Design can be among the most effective strategies.
