This year, the spotlight is on the sports cars, but other characteristics such as fuel efficiency and safety are also taken into account. For 2013-2014, sportiness is taking center stage once more, and a fierce competition is about to happen as today cars are better than anytime, as technology as evolved and a lot of advances were done in areas such as quality, power, safety and efficiency. Here is a list of cars that we are waiting for during this year. A few of them have been released while others will be coming out until the end of the year.
1. 2014 Porsche Macan
The Porsche Macan released date is in mid 2013 and the price is expected to reach around $40,000s. Production of the new Macan is expected to begin in late 2013 at a plant in Germany, and the car will be on the streets in early 2014. Until now, there is nothing certain regarding the engine and the horsepower. While the five-door model is the subject of the spy shots, the Macan is still about 12 months from delivery, meaning many of the characteristics could change. We are really anxious to see the configuration and the pricing, as Porsche is expecting the Macan to be its top-seller.
2. 2014 Jaguar F-Type Roadster
The release date is expected to be the summer of 2013, while the price will range from $50,000 to $60,000. The Jaguar first new sports car in 50 years might have been worth the wait. The F-type debuts first as a roadster, but a coupe will soon follow. Featuring V-6 and V-8 power engines supercharged, and the six is available in two strengths. It is expected that this Jaguar model will compete with Porsche Boxster as well as with the Audi TT-RS.
As the Audi A3 family is growing, the 2014 Audi A3 will be based on the VW Golf. This car is expected to be released in mid-2013 and to be priced for $30,000 and up. The inside is pretty amazing and has lots of gadgets such as Audi Connect internet connectivity setup that allows operation of up to eight devices and powers Google Earth navigation, Facebook and Twitter. Moreover, a 5.8- or 7.0-inch central monitor that is touch sensitive rises from the dashboard.
4. 2013 Chevy Sonic RS
The Chevy Sonic RS will most probably be released in late 2012 for around $22,000, thus this sportier Sonic with an have an affordable price. The letter R from the name RS is not an acronym for Racing Spec. The letter comes from rally, as it is a rally sport car and you should expect a 138 bhp from the turbocharged Ecotec 1.4-liter found in the Sonic line. This model is a promising choice in this ever-growing subcompact class.
5. 2013 Subaru WRX
The Subaru WRX will be released this year for around $28,000. One can say that this car has it all: it is a high-performance car, it is practical, and big enough for families. Moreover, the performance oriented interior fuels the nature of every serious driver: to be in control and in the same time in full support. From the height adjustable driver’s seat, to the single piece design of the backseats, both driver and passengers sit comfortable.
6. Chevy Corvette C7
This car will be released in Fall 2013 for no less than $50,000 or even more. There are a few spy photos and even less is known about this model. Some speculate about a split rear window, a turbocharged V-6, or a mid engine design. Apparently, it will debut with a 5.5-liter V-8 that still uses pushrods. However, thanks to direct injection and higher compression, it’s reasonable to expect the new Corvette to put out 440 hp, so it could match or best the outgoing 6.0-liter.
7. 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA
This model will be released later on this year and a guess is that it will be priced as high as $45,000. The company’s first compact four-door luxury sedan is a scaled-down imitation of the prettiest Mercedes on sale today, the CLS, and that’s its biggest ace. Among its standard safety features, the 2014 CLA carries a new Collision Prevention Assist function; using radar, it can alert the driver of upcoming obstacles when it’s traveling at more than 4 mph.
8. 2013 SRT Viper
The customer orders are now open for this jewelry . With SRT’s production facility only have the ability to produce 14 cars per day, as it is a handmade car with a really laborious process. This high-performance coupe will be quite an exclusive supercar, an amazing car both inside and out. The car feature a two-mode Bilstein DampTronic system, a carbon fiber x-brace, lighter wheels, stickier Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires and carbon fiber front and rear spoilers.
9. Dodge Dart R/T
The Dodge Dart R/T was released in October 2012 and it is price at around $23,290.The car has 184-hp 2.4-liter four under the hood. The R/T is going to face stiff competition from slightly pricier models, including the Ford Focus ST, the expected Fiesta ST, and the Subaru BRZ. Even if these sporty cars are sold for around $25,000, slightly above the Dart R/T, their performance might make to reconsider the Dodge.
10. Hyundai Veloster Turbo
The Hyundai Veloster Turbo was released in the summer of 2012 and it is characterizes by 2 words: killer looks. This model is loved by keen drivers, thanks to the aggressive design and the dynamic performances. The car has a 201 horsepower in addition to a 35-mpg highway rating and a bevy of standard features and it is powered by a turbocharged version of the entry-level Veloster’s 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder.We hope that the Hyundai Veloster Turbo it’s a sign of better-performing Hyundais to come.
