10 Interesting Cars That Will Debut In 2011
The 2011 year brings the launch of an impressive number of new models, while the economic forecasts are not exceptional. Whether they will sell it or not, the automakers will launch both new models and improved versions of previous models, provided in the current ranges.
I make a selection with ten models that will debut in 2011.
1.Aston Martin Cygnet
Although it is an exclusive model for those who already have an Aston Martin, Cygnet has no way to not arouse the curiosity waves. We are talking about to a redesigned Toyota iQ, with a completely changed interior and no changes to the engine, which sell price was doubled, and the logo was replaced with that of the mark from Gaydon. There are big chances that all the copies available to sell like hot bread, although the model has not the dynamism that Aston Martin offers.
The new generation of Audi A6 is the last competitor of the premium trio from Germany that debuts in this segment. After Mercedes-Benz has surprised everyone with E-Class and BMW has raised the bar to a new level with 5 Series F10, it’s the time that Audi to look at what they worked so hard.
3.Audi Q5 Hybrid
New Audi Q5 Hybrid is the second new hybrid model in the automaker range from Ingostadt, after Audi A8. This time, we are talking about to a more accessible model, which should help those from Audi to debut on the hybrids market. On the fuel economy level, the model should be very close to a diesel, but the real achievement will be at the CO2 emissions chapter, that will be reduced dramatically.
4.BMW 6 Series Convertible
The debut of the new BMW 6 Series Convertible is expected in March 2011. Normally, the most automakers launch their convertible models in spring, to give customers enough time to order a copy until summer. Finally, the model looks interesting and is built on 5-Series platform.
The second member of the DS premium range of the guys from Citroen is based on the new Citroen C4. Since the DS3 model has managed to be a very attractive without altering the beauty of Citroen C3, we expect to something special from the new Citroen DS4.
Also in 2011 we will see the third member of the DS range, based on the 3008 and 5008 “brothers”. The model will be a luxury van and will have both an innovative design, as the guys from Citroen have accustomed us, and also numerous practical features for everyday life for the customers and for their families. The debut is expected at the Geneva Motor Show 2011, with Citroen DS4.
We already know how it looks the new Peugeot 508, how much costs and with what engines is offered. But we don’t know how it drive, and the first units have just arrived at the dealers. The new Peugeot 508 is a premiere in the automotive world, because the model will try to replace two models from two segments at the same time, without to contradicting himself. This year we will see what the customers think about the new creation of the French from Peugeot.
In this chapter, not much to say. We speak by a true supercar that will provide outstanding performance and an attractive look. Its price will be big, a small number of customers in the automotive world can have the new supercar of those from Lamborghini. The production version will have an aspirated V12 engine with a displacement of 6.5-liters, which delivers 700 HP and is coupled to a seven-speed gearbox.
9.Volkswagen New Beetle
The third further of a legend, or Volkswagen New Beetle. Although the original model has never left the factory with the Beetle name, and the second generation has not experienced as much popularity as its predecessor, the guys from Volkswagen hopes to hit the new “New Beetle”. This time we talking about integrated modern technology in a retro way, along with other attributes of the Volkswagen brand, as we know already.
10.Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake
The niche of a niche. As can be easily characterized Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake. We are talking about a four-door coupe of premium class that has become a high wagon in the premium segment. Since the Germans from Mercedes has achieved a such model, means that they have customers willing to buy such a vehicle. The debut may occur in the second half of 2011.
