If you’re in the market for a new car, you may want to find a leftover from last year or you could wait until the new 2011 vehicles hit the market. There are some really great cars coming out for the New Year, and here is a preview of just five out of the twenty one new cars coming out for 2011.
The Bentley Mulsanne, $285,000
This car had to be on the list simply because of its luxury factor. It has a huge sedan, stretching longer than most minivans out there. It comes with twenty inch alloy wheels, and the car comes in over a 100 factory colors. It has a V-8 engine, and settings for the steering can be changed between sport, comfort, and Bentley settings. It gets 17 miles per gallon. This car is a must see for the 2011 vehicles.
The Honda CR-Z, $19,200
This new hybrid by Honda is for those wanting a hybrid that has a sportier look. The Honda Cr-Z has only two seats and is the only Honda Hybrid that is a stick shift. It also gets lower gas mileage then the other Honda Hybrids out there, with 31 city miles, to 37 highway miles.
The Nissan Leaf, $32,780
The Nissan Leaf is the first electric mass-market car. It gets 100 miles every time that the battery is charged, and charge times are able to be scheduled on the internet or with a Smartphone. There is also a solar panel on the spoiler for charging. The cars have already sold out for all of 2011, and are being released sporadically throughout. While much of how the electric car is going to do in years to come is a surprise, the cost of gas, being zero won’t be one.
Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, $18,495
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is one of the new smaller, more compact SUVs. It gets 24 city miles, and 29 highway miles, and has a 148 horsepower, four-cylinder engine. It’s a good car for anyone who wants the feel of an SUV, without having to pay for all of the gas.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, $183,000
The Mercedes-Benz SLS Amg is a new sports car with a 563 horsepower, 6.3L, V-8 engine. What many people like about it are its unique gull-wing doors. It has a great sporty look to it, but only seats two.
