The Top Cars Of 2017 Revealed

Cars have been a central part of our society for over a century and with the rise of electric cars once again, it’s an interesting market to look in to. If you’ve been following the news, you’ll know Tesla just announced their Tesla Roadster, which accelerates from 0-60 in just 1.9 seconds! As cars get better and better, let’s have a look at the best cars of 2017. The year isn’t over yet, but with less than a month to go, we can be fairly confident in this list.

2018 Ford Focus

Tesla Roadster

As mentioned before, the Tesla Roadster has just been announced by Tesla. Though it isn’t slated for release until 2020, they have working prototypes already. The standout features of the Tesla Roadster are its acceleration and range. It’s touted as the quickest car in the world, and with a 0-60 time of 1.9 seconds and plans for upgrades which will reduce that, it sure holds true. It’s also capable of reaching speeds above 250mph, which is astonishing for an electric car. Also incredible is its stellar range. At 1,000km, it’s almost double that of the Tesla Model S 100D. If you want to hear the sweet sound of a V8 or V6, this car might not be for you, but the Tesla Roadster is incredibly fast nonetheless, and a great car.

Toyota GT86

With the Acura NSX and Toyota GT86, spiritual successors to classic cars are making a comeback, succeeding the Honda NSX and AE86 respectively. While the Toyota GT86 isn’t a powerhouse, it’s a beautiful looking car with amazing handling. It doesn’t have the drifting or racing pedigree the original AE86 did, but it’s a sporty looking car nonetheless, with racing versions racing in the GT4, Super GT, and Formula D series. Starting at $26,255 and doing 28MPG on highways, it’s a very economical option; at least more economical than the astronomical price of the Tesla Roadster.

Ford Focus RS 2017

The Ford Focus range spans a wide category of hatchbacks, but the Ford Focus RS is right at the top. With a powerful 350 horsepower, 2.3L motor, the Ford Focus RS is a mighty fast hatchback. Starting at $41,420, and a highway MPG of 26, it’s a fairly economical choice as well. Of course, the base model Ford Focus SE Hatch starts at just $20,445 and blows away the Ford Focus RS in terms of fuel economy with a 38 MPG highway rating.

That concludes the list of the best cars in 2017. Hopefully, this helps you to choose the right car for you, at least in the compact sports car category. My personal favorite is the Ford Focus RS, as it balances price and performance, with a meaty 350HP motor under the hood. The Toyota GT86 is a great car as well, but you may find it a little lacking on a straight line, as it has a mere 205hp motor.
