Cars to Look Forward To In 2014
With 2013 gone, it’s time we get excited and start looking forward to all of the innovation and excellence that we can expect from the coming year. You’ll be seeing everything from advancements in driver assisting technology to crazy automotive painting styles. 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting one, with a plethora of great vehicles and concepts hitting the highways and car lots. It can be confusing, wading through all of the information and lists and browsing through manufacturers websites to see what’s new. So to help you out, we’ve compiled a list of what cars you should look forward to in 2014 so you don’t need car sales training just to know what’s out there.
One of the most exciting and promising car is the new offering from Volkswagen, the new Golf 7. Winning awards for car of the year not only in Japan and Europe, but as the world car of the year as well, it’s no wonder why everyone is buzzing about the new golf. Succeeding the Golf MK6, the 7 is loaded with new features. A roomier cabin, a ton of new safety systems like a multi-collision braking system, adaptive cruise control and driver fatigue detection, Volkswagen is pulling out all the stops for this incarnation of their world famous compact.
The new Corvette Stingray seems to be on everyone’s radar as well, thanks to its innovative new switchable exhaust system. Able to switch from a roaring hog of an exhaust when you’re cruising down the highway, to a cute purring kitten when you switch into residential driving, you get the best of both worlds with this muscle car with its whopping 452 horsepower. That’s sure to excite your auto mechanic.
The new Ford Transit gets a complete overhaul, too. Not only is this Ford offering sporting much better looks than its predecessors, but it’s making great strides in increasing the lavish comfort of the cabin, and pointing car users to the choice of either short-wheelbase Custom or full-sized Cargo models. The basic engine is a 2.2-litre turbodiesel, and Ford is even going as far as to add a camera for use while reversing, providing the utmost in visibility.
Hyundai has shocked a few people in the industry by introducing a vehicle intended to break its usual business model, centered around competitive pricing. The Hyundai Genesis is an extremely upscale new offering, clocking in at an MSRP of $60,000. Intended to make up for the poor showing of its recent attempts at luxury vehicles, the Genesis is an extremely lavish coupe with a V6 engine.
If the buzz on these vehicles is any indication, 2014 is going to be a year of innovation, exceptional design and inspiration.
