For many people, a car (or truck) is almost like a part of the family. People name their cars, give them housing (garages), and even talk to their favorite vehicles. Updating a car with a new model isn’t always easy to do, but the following new cars might make you think twice about keeping that beloved old beater in the garage.
1. 2014 BMW M4
As successor to the M3, there are high expectations for the new BMW M4. The vehicle promises to feel just as at home on the track as it does on the open road with its 420 horsepower and a twin-turbocharged engine.
2. 2014 Cadillac ELR
Although the Chevy Volt has gotten a positive reception, many drivers have been waiting for a luxury version of the electric wonder mobile, and the Cadillac ELR just might be the vehicle for which electric aficionados have been waiting. Don’t you want to look like a gangsta at Montreal events you go to?
3. 2014 Subaru WRX
Subaru vehicles are legendary for inspiring the love and adoration of drivers. Many drivers never buy anything else after they drive a Subaru. With the introduction of the sleek new Subaru WRX, vehicles like the Ford Focus ST and the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO will have some tough competition.
4. 2014 Ford Fiesta ST
A look at an old Ford Fiesta from the first years of the model often inspire comments like, “look at that roller skate,” but the new Ford Fiesta ST won’t be the brunt of anyone’s jokes. The fun 5-door hatchback is a small, zippy car that promises a wild, fun drive for any buyer.
5. 2014 Maserati Ghibli
This “entry level” luxury sedan seeks to take on competitors like the Mercedes-Benz E-class and the Audi A6, and it might be the best way to get a Maserati without sacrificing a first-born child to pay for it. The top model offers a beefy 404 horsepower and a turbocharged V-6. Montreal math tutors will agree, this car is not cheap.
6. 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
A vehicle with a storied history and ardent fans all over the world, the newest Chevrolet Camaro gives drivers the opportunity to get a V8 with 426 horsepower under the hood. Chevrolet also offers a version with a lower cost attached to please budget-conscious drivers who still want to be seen in a powerful sports car.
