The following list highlights some of the best efforts in the automobile class of 2013.
The Top 10 Cars of 2013 Model Year
The Mazda CX-5 is a new offering for 2013, and it has made quite an impression. The CX-5 offers the best gas mileage among the small SUV category, and also has the sporty driving experience that you expect from a Mazda.
The Focus has become an established leader in the low-budget car market, and it stays that way for 2013. Considering the great gas mileage and surprisingly energetic engine, the Focus offers a package that belies its price tag.
Toyota Camry Hybrid
Hybrid vehicles are known for two things: saving gas and being very expensive. The Camry Hybrid bucks that trend, coming in comfortably under $30,000 while posting around 40 MPG. Safety is also a strength of this vehicle, with ten airbags all around the cabin.
Stepping up a class in the price department, the Lexus ES is a luxury experience without totally breaking the bank. The powerful V6 offers a fun driving experience, but still returns 31 MPG on the freeway.
In a world overrun with SUV’s, Subaru is holding strong to the wagon design – and doing it quite well. The Outback has ample storage, handles well in all kinds of weather conditions, and lives up to Subaru’s reputation for safety.
Making a minivan cool isn’t an easy job, but Toyota may just have done it with the Sienna. With over 260 horsepower, second-row captain’s chairs, and optional all-wheel drive, the Sienna can get the whole family wherever they need to go in style.
If you hate the cookie-cutter look of some cars on the road today, the Veloster just might be for you. Unique styling and over 200 horsepower give this Hyundai a reason to stand out from the compact car crowd.
Dodge Ram 1500
This old standby has received a total facelift for 2013, and the results are impressive. The technology inside the Ram is advanced beyond most trucks, and it is offered in both V6 and V8 versions.
Chevy Corvette C7
For a sports car that can generate some real power on the open road, it is still hard to beat the Corvette. The 2013 C7 model stands up to all of the high-end competition in this segment admirably, and would be the apple of any owner’s eye.
The Fit is all about being practical, and it hits a homerun in that department. Great gas mileage, incredible storage for a subcompact, and Honda safety in a small package all define the Fit as a big vehicle in a small package.
