Needless to say, we can’t wait to check out the hottest new releases. Here, the cars we are most looking forward to getting up close and personal with.
Mercedes-Benz’s CLA 45 AMG: This car features 360 break horsepower. Need we say more. Its one of the hottest new releases of the auto show.
2014 Audi A3: This car is possibly the best kept secret of the show, which makes its unveiling all the more exciting. Its starting price is $33,395, and it is meant to be a direct competitor to the Mercedes CLA Class.
Jaguar XJR: This high performance sedan version of the Jaguar XJ is already making waves. The car boasts the same 5.0 liter supercharged V8 as Jaguar’s flagship sedan.
The New Jeep Cherokee: Expect a radically different look from this classic jeep. The box car has definitely gotten an architectural upgrade and we can’t wait to check it out.
Cadillac CTS: This classic American carmaker is debuting a new twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 in this model.
2013 VS Golf: The seventh generation of this model was named 2013 car of the year earlier this month. This car is notable for its fuel efficiency.
BMW Concept Active Tourer 328d, 3 Series Gran Turismo: This front wheel drive plug-in hybrid hatchback is powered by a three-cylinder gasoline engine and a electric motor. It has cool factor in spades, but keep in mind it is a concept car.
SRT Viper TA: This isn’t a luxury car (amenities like leather seats and a sound system have been ditched to keep the car’s weight low). It is however perfect for showing off your skills on the track thanks to a revised suspension.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport: This the smaller, sleeker sport model and rumors are that this latest version will feature a new engine, possibly Jaguar’s 3.0-liter supercharged V8 and 5.0-liter supercharged V8. Our curiosity is definitely piqued.
Shelby 1000 SC: Shelby unveiled the 950 hp 1000 Mustang at last year’s show. The 1000 is back and improved thanks to its 5.8 liter supercharged V8 from the 2013 Mustang GT500.
