These Car Models Are The Most Looked Forward To
2015 figures to be a good year for auto enthusiasts and those who are looking to purchase a new vehicle. That's because many of the vehicles that car companies started designing during the Great Recession are now becoming a reality and will be ready to be sold to the public for the first time. This is especially true for those looking for vehicles that have new and innovative car designs.
- Porsche Macan
The list price for this car is $50,895. Since the Porsche Cayenne has proven to be quite popular, it's only natural that Porsche would decide to take advantage of it, which they are doing by releasing the Porsche Macan.
As a compact SUV, don't let that fool you, as this model excels in a big way when it comes to the performance that you would expect from a brand such as Porsche. There will be a variety of models available, including a base model that features a V6 engine with 340 horsepower and all-wheel drive. It will have the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mpg in only 5.2 seconds.
It doesn't stop there, though. There's an even more powerful version that will be available, which is a 400 power turbocharged V6 engine.
Porsche is also planning on including other extra add-ons, such as adaptive air suspension and skid plates.
- BMW i8
The list price for this vehicle is actually quite high for the base model, which starts at $135,700. However, since it is a plug-in hybrid, the first one ever made by BMW, you can expect generous tax credits should you choose to purchase it.
Its performance is outstanding for a hybrid, as it can reach as high as 150 mph and has door designs that allow for them to open upwards.
Containing a 357 horsepower gas / electric power plant, a highly advanced carbon-fiber chassis, and featuring all-wheel drive, it's sure to impress.
- Jeep Renegade
Though its list price hasn't been listed yet, most expect it to actually be lower than $20,000.
The car itself is an interesting fusion of technologies from the Jeep and Fiat brands, no doubt a result of Fiat's new focus on innovation. In fact, the Jeep Renegade, which can be considered a subcompact crossover SUV, will have a unique combination of off-road qualities with a chassis that's similar to the one from the small Fiat 500L.
The base model of the Jeep Renegade will feature front-wheel drive and a 160-horsepower, four cylinder engine. For those who are looking for more ruggedness, there's the option of having four-wheel drive and an 184-horsepower engine.
- Ford Mustang
The base model will cost $24,425. Celebrating its 50 year anniversary, it's receiving a major design overhaul, perhaps a result of its introduction into the European market for the first time ever as well.
In the United States, the base model will have a V6, 300-horsepower engine, with the option of also selecting a model with either a 310-horsepower, four cylinder engine or a V8, 435-horsepower engine.
Expect fancy features such as a six speaker stereo and limited-slip rear differential to be included as well.
- Alfa Romeo 4C
The Alfa Romeo has not been available to any significant degree in the United States for over 20 years. Now, with a base price of $55,195, that's about to change, leading to it being designated as the most anticipated car model of 2015. That's because of Fiat's new ownership of Chrysler and greater push into the U.S. market.
You can expect it to have a carbon-fiber body and a 240-horsepower, four-cylinder engine that's turbocharged. What makes it unique is that the engine will be in the middle of the car, rather than in the front. Of course, being an Alfa Romeo, you will also have the option of choosing tires suitable for racing, as well as upgraded suspensions and brakes.
Featuring exquisite design, it also handles like a dream.
It's an exciting time to be a car enthusiast!
