Looking to upgrade your motor in the new year? If so, then it’s time to look ahead to what will be big in the motoring world in 2018. Each year there are new trends that hit the car industry, and most of these dictate which cars will be big news.
Lots of experts have already spent the past few months looking at what things have been in fashion in 2017 and they have been using their insight into the industry to try and figure out the big players of 2018.
So, want to buy one of the best cars that 2018 will have to offer? Here are some ideas for the cars that are going to take the motoring industry by storm next year.
Porsche 911 GT3
Want a car that will turn all your neighbors’ heads? Then the Porsche 911 GT3 is for you! Porsche have made some significant upgrades to this, the latest model in their 911 series. But there still seems to be something lacking from this car while you’re driving it, especially when you inch into those impressive top speeds. It might not have great drivability, but there is no doubt that it looks super cool! And it’s its look and chicness that has pushed this motor into most of the best cars of 2018 lists!
Unfortunately, this snazzy car won’t be out to buy until the winter of 2018, but at least you now have plenty of time to save up for it! When they were designing this fine vehicle, Audi took some inspiration from the classic Volkswagen Polo and the Seat Ibiza – so expect this car to have plenty of storage space! Even though it’s bigger than most Audis, it is still incredibly light and easy to drive. A great family car!
Volvo V90 Cross Country
Next time you’re at wcvolvo.com, it’s worth seeing if they have a Volvo V90 Cross Country for you to test drive. One thing you will instantly notice is that this car is a lot plusher and more comfortable than the usual Volvo cars. It’s also a superb heavy duty car as well. Whether you’re driving it down dirt tracks or along winding country roads, this is a great car for those who want to drive in all kinds of weather and on all types of terrain.
Even though this car had an extensive makeover in 2016, there shouldn’t be too many changes to the Acura ILX that is due to be rolled out next year. But it still bears a mention on this list. And that’s because it’s super practical and also looks effortlessly chic! The car has a sporty chassis and body, so should feel very light when you are out on the road in it. The engine is exceptionally smooth as well, so there’s no chance of all the growling overload your ears when you accelerate!
Did you think that mentions of the Ford Mustang had been retired onto classic car lists and classic car guides, such as asapwarranty.com? Well, think again! There is actually a modern Ford Mustang model coming out in 2018 and it is definitely worth every penny of its price tag! This new car is going to be very high tech, but not so high tech that it will be super difficult to use! For instance, there are four different exhaust settings you can choose from, depending on how you are feeling. So, next time you need to leave the house at 6am you can switch your Ford Mustang into quiet mode so that the engine and revving don’t wake up all the neighbors!
Alfa Romeo Giulia
Originally, Alfa Romeo launched a model of their Giulia this year, but it already looks like they are set to start selling an updated version in 2018. It will still feature the same excellent twin-turbo engine and fab driveability, but there are some other extras in this new one. One that is getting most Alfa Romeo fans excited is the new choice of exterior colors, so you can have your new car looking just how you want it!
Mercedes-AMG GT C Convertible
Want to treat yourself to a fancy convertible next year? How about the Mercedes-AMG GT C Convertible?! Many in the motoring industry expect this car to be the biggest rival to the Porsche 911 GT3. And there is no wonder why. This car looks effortlessly elegant and it has some excellent driving features. Just look at its quick hydraulic steering, for instance. Unfortunately, though, one of the main criticisms with this car is that it doesn’t really start to come alive unless it is being driven at breakneck speeds. However, that shouldn’t be enough to put you off this fantastic car. I mean, just look at how cool it looks!
Bentley Flying Spur
The Bentley Flying Spur is a great example of a sedan motor. And what’s more, it looks like Bentley are set to release some special editions of this car, so if you wait before you buy it you might find that there are some excellent editions that come out later in the year. Of course, each will have its very own set of special features. This is a really comfortable car and safe enough for families with young children.
Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe
This offering from Mercedes-Benz is very powerful and has the added benefit of light steering. Plus, it has exceptionally good suspension as well, making for a very smooth ride indeed! Thanks to its fab controllability, this car is a great drive for those who live in cities and built-up urban areas. You’ll be able to glide around tight corners without any discomfort!
As you can see, 2018 is going to be a really exciting year for cars and the motoring industry. Don’t forget that the selection of cars above is just a small number of all of next year’s expected new cars. You might fall in love with a model that hasn’t made it onto this excellent list!
