The automobile enthusiasts look forward to North American International Auto Show, also called Detroit Show every year. It is the event where the bigwigs, as well as newcomers in the automobile sector, unveil their new and upcoming models. From Ford to Toyota, every car maker worth a mention thronged the event this time too and took wraps off some of the most awaited models.
Below listed are some of the most promising vehicles that will be released officially in 2018.
1. 2018 Toyota Camry
Japanese car giant Toyota has several successful models in its kitty but the Camry is a prominent one. The sedan has a loyal user base but over the years it started looking somewhat dated while the rivals sharpened their claws and nails. The 2018 Toyota Camry comes with changes in exterior styling and interior. The seats are positioned a tad lower in this version and that has made it possible to keep roof lower. The sedan also gets a revised powertrain. It will also get a hybrid version. There will be 4 trims for 2018 Camry and its XSE trim gets black alloy wheels. The cabin gets more premium materials. This redesigned sedan will probably be a top selling car in 2018. That’s why we have decided to start our 2018 best cars list with this model.
2. 2018 Honda Odyssey
The 2018 Odyssey from Honda is among the most useful and stylish minivans you can buy. Its blend of tech, safety features, and space make it a winner. The grille has been revamped and sleek roof-line gives it an SUV-esque appearance. Inside, you get Honda’s famous “Magic Slide” seating setup, which is quite customization. The 2018 Honda Odyssey also boasts impressive cargo space- a plus point in its segment. The car is powered by the 3.5-liter V6 engine and a new nine-speed AT. The 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity is optional and the model gets plenty of technology features with enhanced infotainment software. Honda has also used plenty of noise suppression mechanism to ensure the cabin is quiet. While many of you are waiting for a redesigned Toyota Sienna, the new Odyssey will surely be the best minivan in 2018.
3. 2018 Kia Stinger
Kia Motors has built a reputation for making some of the most popular vehicles offering great value for money. However, it has not succeeded in making a model that can be called a performance car. All that is set to change as Kia is taking the veil off the 2018 Kia Stinger. The blend of four-door sedan body and rear-wheel drive may make it a winner. Based on the Kia GT concept, the 2018 Stinger features the company’s famous “tiger nose” grille and quad-exhaust outlets. It will be launched in 2 engine choices. This is also the first vehicle from Kia stable to be equipped with an adaptive suspension. There will be 5 driving modes and it will get several safety technologies. With the price tag below $ 27,000, this will be the most desirable sports car in 2018.
4. 2018 GMC Terrain
The GM has several crossover SUVs and the 2018 GMC Terrain is among the important and popular ones. The styling has got a boost possibly in a bid to segregate it from platform mate Chevy Equinox. The new grille, fluid headlights, and roof rails give it an elegant look. The new Terrain is lighter than the predecessor. Also, it will lead to enhanced fuel economy. Like the upcoming Equinox, new Terrain is powered by three turbocharged engines. There will be 4 trims the top being Denali which gets plenty of visual accents. However, inside the cabin material quality has got a boost and same is true about GM’s IntelliLink infotainment system. With the long-awaited redesign, this SUV definitely deserves to be on our 2018 best cars list.
5. 2018 Chevrolet Traverse
The Chevy Traverse is among popular SUV crossovers sold by GM. For 2018 it has got a nice revamp. The exterior styling is impressive with an aggressive-looking grille and sleek headlamps. It is slightly bigger in size than the earlier model. Inside, material quality has received a boost and you get more touch screen based controls than knobs and switches. However, the 2018 Traverse now has impressive amounts of Headroom and legroom. The cargo space is slightly lower than the predecessor but 23 cubic feet is still better than what some rivals offer. It gets a beefy 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood and RS trim gets a turbocharged 2.0-liter unit. Also, the engine stop/start system will help it save fuel. All in all, we think that this is one of the best mid-size SUV for 2018.
6. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan: Long-Wheelbase
The Tiguan is among the most popular and top selling models of VW. However, for 2018 VW has come up with a larger version of Tiguan. The new larger Tiguan which is built on the company’s much talked about MQB architecture which is also the base of new Atlas SUV. The longer wheelbase version of Tiguan will be named Tiguan Allspace in European markets. The Tiguan Allspace has a roomy cabin as it is natural and cargo space is also enhanced. The default seating setup is for 5 passengers but third-row seating will be optional. The new Tiguan will get a new engine which will have an eight-speed automatic transmission and VW’s 4MOTION all-wheel-drive. It will be replete with advanced safety technologies.
You must admit that Volkswagen is one of the best car manufacturers. With the incredible speed, they have recovered from huge penalties after a scandal with the emission gasses. They learned their lesson and managed to be even better. On this occasion, we pay tribute to them and say that in our opinion they make the best vehicles for 2018.
7. 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe
The Mercedes-Benz is busy upgrading its existing luxury car lineup and the E-Class Coupe E400 is one of them. The base is the 2017 E300 sedan but new styling elements are there. The sporty looks are well complemented by a powerful engine under the hood. The car is also going to be lightweight and this coupled with the 3.0 -liter twin turbo V6 engine, will give the model some edge over segment rivals. Also, it will get several driving modes. The cabin is lavished adorned. The chromed metallic trim and black leather sit in stark contrast with white leather seats. The Drive Pilot semi-autonomous software is optional. I don’t know for you, but I love coupe style of cars and new 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe is surely best coupe in the world for me.
8. 2018 Audi SQ5
Audi is busy preparing its existing models for 2018 revamp and it also has plans to release new variants in the next year. The 2018 Audi SQ5 is making buzz before imminent release. It was showcased at the 2017 Detroit auto show. It is powered by a turbocharged, 3.0-liter V6 unit which is paired with a tip-tronic eight-speed automatic transmission gearbox and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive setup. Audi has offered a sport adaptive air suspension as an option. There are Audi drive select modes. The Audi Virtual Cockpit and MMI touch infotainment setup also receives a boost. 2018 Audi SQ5 pricing is yet to be declared. This Audi crossover SUV with sports performance is a just perfect choice and probably the best crossover for 2018.
