Walk off back a small number of years and each new – fangled car shouted about mpg and parsimonious. This year, fuel competence is tranquil significant, but fashion is back for the new – fangled cars sporting 2013 and 2014 model years. Sportiness is intriguing middle phase once more, and a ferocious antagonism is about to occur between $20,000 and $30,000—so if you can’t manage to pay for the next $100,000 brute fear not. Here are some of the cars we’re coming up for over the subsequently year or so.
2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo
At this moment, the Veloster lacks the recital cred to backside up its murderer looks. But that will revolutionize once this 201-hp version hits the streets. The 45 percent make better in horsepower has a large amount folks captivating a second stare at the Veloster, and on tenterhooks this Turbo is an indication that Hyundai is in receipt of as serious about presentation as it has been about superiority and design over the very last a small number of years.
2013 Dodge Dart R/T
The majority of the new – fangled front-wheel-drive Dart models go on trade this summer, and we akin to what we’ve determined so far. But the best ever of the variety, the R/T, holds off for a plunge begin.
Similar to its not as much of well-developed brethren, the R/T rides on a Fiat armature rented from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, with a completely sovereign deferral. We look forward to that suspension to be a little minor and stiffer in the R/T.
2013 SRT Viper
With a 640-hp V-10 and a corpse made of magnesium, aluminum, and carbon fiber, we’re expecting magnitude from Chrysler’s supercar. And at 100 magnificent, it’d better be enormous—there’s by now a Corvette ZR1 in this price collection that can consume Ferraris, and the C7 will only up the gamble. Good thing there’s a convinced new Mustang that’s far-off cheaper and should be mighty extraordinary too. And even if the Viper is more rapidly than the Ford or Chevy in a directly line, it must perk up its managing over the gregarious model.
2013 Ram 1500
There is an advantage to the entertainment of become equal Chrysler is in performance in so many segments: It gives the business an occasion to attempt courageous remakes that leap-frog the present benchmarks. We believe the automaker chose shrewdly by doing this to its flagship Dodge pickup.
The Ram was due for a facelift, but to a certain extent than generous it a on the surface makeover, Chrysler went for a lot of smart updates that Ford and GM will be chasing for their own answers. Start with aerodynamics, where Chrysler has distorted the front wheel openings and given the truck’s lattice active shutters said to reduce haul by 3 to 5 percent. It added an eight-speed mechanical communications too, joined in electric power steering, and brought in start/stop know – how to salt away gas in traffic.
2013 Chevy Sonic RS
The RS is a sportier Sonic with a reasonably priced sticky label. Yeah, we desire Chevy would fill up its 2.0-liter Ecotec under the cover of the Sonic, but with the exception of that, we’ll get the Sonic RS with a 1.4-liter turbocharged four borrowed from the Chevy Cruze and first – class for 138 hp.
Still, this car gets more than just a gentle external makeover. The six-speed blue-collar has more rapidly ratios and the suspension has been stiffened. The stock Sonic is by now one of the tautest-handling cars in the “B” segment.
