Welcome to the future – where people take shots of kale and Donald Trump is president. Not exactly where we thought we’d be. The auto industry, however, has progressed significantly in a way that provides the most competent and affordable collection of cars we’ve ever seen. Here are our top five cars to be released in 2017:

Honda Accord

The Accord sedan has maintained a reputation of excellence over its lifespan and 2017 is no exception. Its excellent fuel economy and comfortable ride as well as its responsive CVT transmission scored the Honda Accord its place at #3 in US News’s Best Cars list with a whopping score of 9 out of 10.

The new accord features a wide variety of safety add-ons including collision avoidance features as well as blind spot cameras. Additionally, the Accord’s cabin features a top-notch design, large windows which allow lots of light, and a really nice build quality. The car also comes with dual screen infotainment which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to sync your phone’s applications.

All in all, this option is satisfies both practical needs and luxurious comfort

Nissan Maxima

This car features an impressive V6 engine, great handling, and a top-of-the-line interior with straightforward infotainment system. This is said to be one of the most sporty and luxurious car in its class.

The Nissan Maxima comes with a 300 horsepower 3.5 liter V6 engine, making it one of the best performing cars in its class, with its smooth acceleration. Additionally, the Maxima is fuel efficient, claiming a 30mpg range – although it’s important to note that this car also uses premium fuel only, hiking up gas costs dramatically.

From a technological perspective, the Maxima is way ahead of the game. NissanConnect (its infotainment system) is extremely user friendly with two displays – one touch screen in the center of the dashboard as well as one screen part of the gauge cluster. Navigation is included in standard packaging and the software allows for voice recognition, text message assistance, and a smartphone-like interface.

Also, Apple CarPlay is integrated into the vehicle, allowing the touch screen to display ios applications.

The Maxima is a pretty viable option for car buyers this coming season.

 

Buick LaCrosse

The Buick LaCrosse has been completely redesigned for this year to offer the most optimal middle ground between performance and comfort. The Lacrosse features a cabin with upscale interior fabric and chic design, as well as a high-tech infotainment system. This car comes with IntelliLink system, which supports an 8-inch touch screen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which integrates your smartphone applications apps directly in the display. Additionally, a WiFi hotspot comes with all models so that your mobile device doesn’t have to use data on the go.

The Lacrosse is also a lotof fun to drive and accelerates super quickly, boasting a 3.5 liter V-6 engine and generating 310 horsepower. This in conjunction with its eight-speed automatic transmission makes the drive smooth as butter. In spite of its powerful engine, this car is also extremely fuel efficient, with a whopping 21 mpg around the city and 31 mpg on the highway. It also has an active fuel management system in addition to its start-stop system, really allowing for the most fuel-efficient drive you can hope for.

Kia Forte

The Kia Forte is super appealing and practical due to its spacious interior, low MSRP, and abundant safety features. The Forte offers a high-tech 7-inch touch screen UVO infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, again, allowing for easy connectivity and navigation between your smartphone applications and your car. The car also has a bunch of safety features including a rearview camera, stand-alone emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane-keep assistance, and forward collision alert.

Additionally, the Forte has one of the most dynamic and spacious designs in its class despite its low price.

Providing a solid idle ground between sports car and hatchback, the 2017 Volkswagen GTI is considered to be one of the over-all best compact cars on the market. This car features a turbo-charged engine for fast acceleration as well as spacious cargo volume and legroom.
