What Does 2016 Have in Store for Us?

In Car News, Mercedes, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan by Rocco Penn

We are used to the fall being a time of the previous year’s models being sold off at deep discounts to make room for the new models.  It happens each year like clockwork with at least a basic offering of the new cars showing up to tempt our taste buds for a new car making you ask yourself if it’s time for a car that will be your next great vehicle.  As I have given you this series we have looked at a variety of models that just might be the perfect vehicle for you, here are ten more to help you make your decision.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan/WagonThe sedan and wagon are built as a completely different body style from the coupe and convertible.  The E63 is placed squarely in the sedan class as the E63 S which makes you wonder why this body style and not the coupe?  This pair has not been changed for the new model year, giving us a great deal of what we already love about them including the power, luxury and economy that make them worth the price of admission.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan/Coupe – When you see a price range that starts at $96,575 and reaches up to $234,975 you know there is a lot to choose from for this particular model in the line.  The S-Cass is as luxury as you get, especially 8in the Maybach S600 which is only missing the driver to tote you around.  There are several other choices you can make with this car as well, suffice it to say the car offers more than any other when it comes to pampering you and your passengers.

Mercedes-Benz SL-Class/SL65 – Another car with a large price but one that will require you to drive as it is a beautiful two-seater convertible roadster.  At the base model you get to enjoy reasonable fuel mileage and a 329 horsepower V6 while the massive 621 horsepower V12 powers the AMG version which is the SL 65 giving you some of the most exciting and luxurious driving you will find in any lineup to give you a drive you won’t want to give up.

Mercedes-Benz SLK Class/SLK55 – This lineup gains more power all the way through including at the base model.  As a more affordable convertible this is the model many mainstream shoppers may be able to afford for their weekend cruiser that is great for going out on a date or just riding around.  The horsepower ranges from 241 on up to 416 depending on the model chosen.  As a dynamic and exciting drive the SLK-Class is perfect for any driver.

Mini ClubmanThis car is larger than it’s ever been giving you more space and four doors that show up with a spacious interior that has plenty of room for your whole crew.  This fully redesigned model gives you engines that are extremely fuel efficient in a model that has a head up display, LED headlights and a collision and pedestrian warning system that can help by braking for you when an obstacle is detected in your path.

Mini Hardtop/4-Door – The four door hardtop enters 2016 with no changes to the vehicle which carries plenty of pizzazz and a ton of fantastic features.  The Sport package now offers the dynamic dampers and auto dimming exterior mirrors.  The Loaded package has been removed and the Fully Loaded package continues to offer the features that make the Mini a car that has been desired for many of us for several years.

Mitsubishi i-MiEVFor a fun and engaging ride around town the i-MiEV makes a great choice as an all-electric car.  You can get up to 62 miles of driving each day on a full charge.  If you live in an area where there are charging stations you can enjoy the fact that a Leve 3 charging station will recharge the battery to eight percent in under thirty minutes.  The i-MiEV has been updated with a navigation system with a seven-inch touch screen and Bluetooth technology.

Mitsubishi Lancer/Ralliart – Only small changes have been made to the Lancer but one that we will certainly miss is the Evolution version.  The SE and Ralliart will come in with standard AWD and give you some great driving form this popular sedan.  With the new lineup you will certainly find the Lancer to still be a great way to have a lot of fun from behind the wheel especially with a price range that does not reach over $30,000.

Mitsubishi MirageIf you are on a tight budget the Mirage is the car to choose.  This small car can be had in either the sedan or hatchback form and gives you up to 44 mpg on the highway.  Not only is it an inexpensive vehicle at a base price of $14,000 but it shows up in a fun style that lets you enjoy the car without feeling like you got the short end of the stick.  You can even upgrade it if you want and still not reach up to $20,000.

Nissan 370Z/370Z NISMO – There is no reason to spend over $100,000 on a sports car unless you have to.  The 370Z proves that with its gorgeous looks, dynamic styling, excellent power and performance and the sport name that has been lauded for many decades.  With the different models to choose from you will certainly have the 370Z that is right for you, it’s just a matter of deciding between Touring, Sport Tech and the NISMO Tech model.

Ten more cars presented, giving you ten more to think about for this series.  Do you want a sports car, a luxury car, a mainstream commuter car or maybe even a funky European model?  Whatever your tastes are you can see why this model year is so exciting for then new cars that are coming out.
