As technology advances, you would expect the driving experience to change right along with it, and it has.
Between safety features that enhance the driver’s ability to avoid crashes to the evolving self-driving platform and electric power vehicles, there are big changes for the future of driving.
Here Are The Twelve Best Car In 2023:
Here are some of the best cars for 2023, and if you want to own one for yourself, you could save a lot of money by buying it at a salvage auction.
1. Toyota GR Corolla
This hatchback is powered by a 1.6-liter 3-cylinder engine, which is the same engine as the Yaris. It is capable of 270 horsepower, and it will be offered in the future with a manual transmission. Since the Yaris is not a vehicle available in the United States, Toyota developed the GR Corolla for the U.S. market.
2. Toyota Crown
This passenger car is a combination crossover and sedan. It is built stout, but it does not appear to have the cargo room that an SUV would offer. It is a hybrid with two powertrain options. You can choose between a 2.5-liter and a 2.4-liter turbo engine. The maximum horsepower from the highest trim level is 340.
3. Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing
This performance car from Cadillac delivers exhilarating rides while seating you in the comfort and luxury that makes a Cadillac a Cadillac. This is available as an automatic, or a manual with the stick shift version output of 472 horses from a 3.6-liter V6, which may make people opt for a return to the stick.
4. Polestar 3
Volvo’s entry into the EV sector under the Polestar name combines the engineering prowess of Volvo with the high-tech electric car industry. However, Volvo has said that this is the last of their EV cars. They are discontinuing the Polestar after 2023. It is nice to know that there are some Swedish EVs in the market.
5. Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV
This SUV is smaller than the EQS and, as a base model, it offers 288 horsepower. If you upgrade to the AMG version, you can expect to get 671 horsepower in the top trim level.
6. Chevrolet Corvette Z06
While every Corvette is an exciting drive, the new Z06 has 670 horses that have exotic car lovers interested in a Detroit product. It is equipped with a 5.5-liter V8 with a focus on the track, but it is just as much fun to drive while getting groceries or picking up your kid from soccer practice.
7. Lexus RZ
This is Lexus’ first full EV, and they put it in a crossover body. It is a relative of the RX, only with a 65.6-kWh battery capable of 308 horses driving it. All Lexus are luxury-focused, so you will find an interior that surrounds you with the latest technology and safety features.
8. Kia Niro
For 2023, Kia gave the Niro a makeover that included a more modern interior, as well as a fresh exterior with sleek lines. It is equipped with a 1.6 hybrid engine that delivers 139 horsepower and is slated to go on sale in the United States in mid-2023.
9. Hyundai Ioniq 6
The 2024 model is expected to hit U.S. dealers sometime this year, but only after it makes its debut worldwide. Trim levels offer either a 53.0 or a 77.4-kWh battery for 320 horses.
10. Honda HR-V
This subcompact EV from Honda has been overhauled for 2023, including an exterior design change and an upgraded engine. It now is sporting a 2.0-liter 158 horsepower motor with 138 lb-ft of torque.
11. Honda CR-V
This popular SUV got a makeover in 2023. Honda made many improvements and updates to the exterior, as well as an upgraded interior. They dropped the base model for this year and expanded the cargo hold, so you can take even more stuff with you on road trips or your daily commute. The hybrid model will arrive sometime in 2023.
12. Dodge Hornet
Finally, there is an entry from the Mopar group into the EV world. The Hornet comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbo 4, but it is also available with a hybrid option that delivers 285 horses that can run 0-60 in 6.1. Look for this later in 2023.
As you can see, most of the newer cars hitting the market this year are offering either full EV or hybrid options. Every year, the safety features and options become more sophisticated, as manufacturers build onboard tools that assist the driver in most situations. While some things are still available only in the upper-tier models, the entry-level models are becoming feature-rich with safety items.
In the past, ABS brakes were a luxury add-on that was only available on the upper trim levels, but now, ABS brakes are a standard feature on all models of most cars. Likewise, the safety features like pedestrian and front-end collision monitors may soon be standard equipment on all models.
Driving has changed and it will continue to change with every leap in technology.
