We’re less than halfway into the year, but already 2017 is shaping up to be one of the best for great new car releases. If you’re thinking about buying a brand new car anytime soon, there is no shortage of excellent options for you to choose from. Of course, having so much choice can make it difficult to know which car to choose, which is why you should check out this list of 2017’s greatest cars so far:
The Toyota Yaris iA
This subcompact vehicle, which can be purchased for just $17,750, is one of the best we’ve seen this year. A completely different model of car from the Yaris Hatchback, this sedan has a great 4-cylinder engine that runs like a dream, and because it was developed by Mazda, it has all of the feel that you’d expect from a great sports vehicle when you’re handling it. Not only that, but it also features a full complement of infotainment features to make your life on the road easier.
The Chevrolet Cruze
If it’s a compact vehicle you’re after, this redesigned hatchback will be hard to beat. It’s a smooth-riding 153 horsepower turbocharged vehicle with a powerful four-cylinder engine and the ability to get at least 30 mpg. If you want small, powerful and economical, this really is the car for you.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata
If you don’t want to be using the services of the mechanics at GC Suspension on a regular basis, going for a Mazda is a pretty safe bet, and if you want to have a great time driving, the MX-5, in particular, is a great choice. For just $29,905, you can get a vehicle that, thanks to a four-cylinder engine, rear-wheel drive, handling balance and a lightweight body, transform driving into a blissful process. Its fuel economy is pretty great too!
The Kia Optima
The Kia Optima is a mid-size sedan with a fuel economy of 28 mpg, which although it isn’t as impressive as some of the other vehicles on the list, is still pretty good. For $25,860 you’ll get a great family car with simple controls, responsive handling and some of the best reliability stats on the market. This is the car you should buy is you want your family to be safe and your wallet to barely be troubled by car repairs and fuel costs.
The Subaru Forester
If a small SUV is what you’re looking for, may I suggest the Subaru Forester? Coming in at just $27,145, it’s an affordable vehicle, but that doesn’t mean that it’s inferior to more expensive models. In fact, thanks to its surprisingly spacious interior, secure handling, emergency braking and impressive 2.5 liter engine, as well as its ability to get 26 mpg, it is one of the best.
The Audi Q7
If you have a bigger budget, and you’re looking for a vehicle that will allow you to drive in the lap of luxury, the Audi Q7 is a safe bet. The luxury SUV has an interior so quiet and a ride that is so smooth that you hardly even know you’re driving. It’s also very generous in its size and has a very nice looking body to boot, it really is a very desirable car, but at $68,695, it’s a bit of a luxury.
