2012 is fast approaching, but you do not need to wait until the following year to get your hands on any new 2012 cars. Thankfully automakers are always one step ahead of the game and offer these new models to us early, but what should you buy? That is a very tough question, as it all comes down to your personal choice and needs — looking at the range you will be spoiled by the choice. We have to inform you that the release dates are only a projected timetable, so could change.
First up is the 2012 Hyundai Veloster, which we have discussed on a number of occasions. There are a number of impressive features about this car that should persuade you to consider this as your next purchase. The first should be how the car looks, the second is handling, and the third is its price, which we also discussed back in January. The release date for the Veloster is expected to be sometime in March.
Our next car that we believe should be on your short list is the 2012 Toyota/Subaru FT-86. This new model should be released in December — what a nice Christmas gift for yourself. This car is the coming together of two companies that you associate with fine driving and sports, so will be interesting to see how the public take to it. We expect the car to cost around the $25,000 mark.
If you do not want a sleek sports car, then maybe you should consider the 2012 ZL1 Camaro, as it’s all about the muscle — well it was back in the day. Although these new versions are still raw, we cannot help but think that they have lost that appeal that they had in the 70s. Having said that, you will still have a vehicle that will tear up the tarmac thanks to that 6.2-liter V8 engine, which produces 550 horsepower. This model will be with us in January.
The 2012 car that we are looking forward to the most has to be the 2013 Ford Focus ST, which should be available for purchase in January 2012. Okay, we really had to put this model in because it is Ford back at its best. That 2.0-liter engine will produce 250hp — that’s a huge amount of power for such a small and light car. The only issue that we have for the car is that all the power is being transferred to the front wheels — so expect a few strange things to happen while powering round bends. These are just a few of the new 2012 car models, there are still a huge amount more, what you are waiting for?
