Faster, safer and much more functional – we’re talking about the it cars of 2013. Car brands are addressing our demands for cars that don’t only look good but also promise to perform. Without further ado, here are 10 cars we believe will have your hearts racing and your hands dipping right into your pool of savings.
10. Jeep Liberty
If you’ve long lusted for a car that’s rugged enough to go off-road yet friendly enough for the highways, you’ll be glad to know that Jeep has just the thing for you. The Jeep Liberty will be able to go at up to seventy miles per hour on the highway plus it comes with an all-wheel drive, just in case you need to take the rougher roads – literally.
Yet to be released, but the current Liberty approximates $24,290.
9. Hyundai Veloster Turbo
It’s sleekness and head-turning design aside, the Veloster Turbo is also all about performance. We won’t be surprised if the 201 horse power beauty gets loads of double takes both on and off the road.
Stickered at $26,520.
8. Chevy Sonic RS
It may be small but it’s definitely not one to be overlooked. Boasting a 2.0 liter engine, which will come in handy when you need a little more speed, and a 138 hp engine, it’s true what they say about how good things tend to come in small packages.
A starting price of $20,995 and $22,280 for those who prefer the six-speed auto version.
7. Dodge Dart R/T
Powered by a 184-hp and 2.4 liter engine, the Dart R/T is the epitome of all things fast and furious. With a fully independent suspension, you can guarantee that your journey will be as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
Will start at a base price of $16,790.
6. Dodge Ram 1500
Well maybe the Ram 1500 is more a truck than a car but with a design so sleek and so modern, we couldn’t bear to leave it out of the list. Aesthetics aside, the Ram 1500 and its famous aerodynamics aims to reduce drag by up to five percent. Did we mention that it has an eight speed transmission as well?
A starting price of $23,585, inclusive of the $995 destination charge.
