5 Cars to See in 2015

Each year car enthusiasts have to wait for their favorite models to reach dealerships. Those people will have a particularly exciting year in 2015. Here are five of the cars you must see in 2015.

Ford F-150

Ford’s F-150 has become a staple vehicle for people who take their vehicles to construction sites or have to haul heavy items. Ford plans to make several crucial changes to the F-150 that will keep it at the top of its class.

The 2015 F-150 is the first full-size pickup with an aluminum body. Replacing steel with aluminum lowers the truck’s weight by 700 pounds, improves its fuel efficiency, and lowers the cost of production. Lowering the truck’s weight also means that it can now haul heavier items. The 2015 F-150 is cleared for payloads up to 3,300 pounds.

If you’re the type of person who wants a truck with plenty of muscle, the new Ford F-150 is probably your best choice.

Audi A4

The Audi A4 is one of the most respected compact executive cars. Most of the A4’s features will remain the same in 2015, but there are some noteworthy additions that will make the car even more attractive than it already is.

The 2015 A4’s improvements focus on technology. The improved multi media interface (MMI) offers crisper images and a larger screen that makes navigation easier. The MMI also has access to Google Earth and Google Street View. This will give drivers a way to visually confirm directions and destinations. The upgraded MMI also comes with a 40 GB hard drive and two SD card readers. It should offer enough entertainment for cross-country drives.

Drivers who love new technology will love the Audi A4 and similar new cars at KBB.com.

Lamborghini Huracan

Lamborghini Huracán

Lamborghini has retired its flagship car, Gallardo, and replaced it with Huracán. The sports car comes as a two-door coupe or roadster. As is typical with Lamborghini, it has a mid-placed V10 engine that helps keep the car firmly connected to the road even its top speed (202 mph).

Huracán has full LED lighting that makes it highly visible in all driving conditions. Buyers can also choose to add the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering feature. This optional feature lets drivers choose between three steering performances. Depending on the driver’s preference, he or she can set it to street, sport, or race modes.

This is one of the best cars of 2015, but it comes at a high price that starts at about $240,000.

Subaru WRX STI

Subaru has been trying to balance its reputation for building rally cars with its new brand as a manufacturer of family friendly cars. The 2015 Subaru WRX STI, which falls firmly into the rally car category, has no interest in that balance.

The small car’s flat four turbocharged engine gives it 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. It doesn’t take much to convince the WRX STI that it’s time to break speed limits all over town. That’s what makes it such a fun car that enthusiasts will drool over. Of course, it’s also a part of what makes it an impractical option for most commuters. Getting 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway doesn’t help.

For the right person, this is an unbelievable car that’s worth its $34,495 starting price.

Mercedes-Benz C-class

The Mercedes-Benz C-class has always been a car with excellent styling, steering, and comfort. Mercedes-Benz made some relatively small changes to 2015 model. Those updates actually have a rather significant cumulative effect that should make the 2015 C-class a top seller among luxury buyers.

Changes to the C-class include a larger interior, a more aggressive exterior, and improved materials. Most buyers will encounter C300 and C400 versions on dealership lots. The C300 has a smaller engine, but it still offers plenty of thrills, and it handles just as well as the C400.

Drivers who have owned previous versions of the C-class will notice the 2015’s updated touch-controls and a new group of safety features Mercedes-Benz calls Intelligent Drive.

Which of these five cars do you look forward to driving, owning, or seeing in 2015?
