At CarsDirect, we track the auto industry daily to bring the best deals and most relevant news to you, the car buyer. While the world's car brands collectively release dozens of "all-new" models each year, some of them make a bigger splash than others. These are the top 10 cars just hitting showrooms or set to release this Fall that have us talking at the water coolers.
Cadillac's been touting its new ATS as a BMW 3-Series fighter for what seems like years, but the test results are in, and the ATS is the real deal. Luxury sport sedan buyers: you now have one more world-class option.
The Ford Fusion not only comes with our favorite styling from a Ford passenger car in years, but will also feature powertrains for all different sorts of buyers: an inexpensive base four-cylinder, two EcoBoost turbo engines and even a plug-in hybrid with an electric-only mode.
Take a look at this new Accord Coupe. Does it remind you of the start of the 1990s (in a good way), the golden age of VTEC? There's a reason you still see 20+-year-old Accords still on the road every day, and Honda's rock-solid commitment to reliability hasn't let up one bit.
With its EPA-estimated 47 city/47 highway/47 combined mpg, the C-MAX one-ups every hybrid not named Prius while offering more interior and cargo space than Toyota's class leader. It's also got plenty of power for everyday needs.
Launching Chrysler's SRT performance brand, the all-new Viper proves that there's still a place for 8.4-liter V10 engines in a world where V8 and V6 engine options are losing cylinders by the day. SRT's American supercar is no-apologies excessive motoring heaven.
Only the keen-eyed observer will be able to point out changes in the RAM 1500's redesigned exterior signifying an all-new half-ton pickup, but now with class-leading V6 efficiency and the debut of Chrysler's new UConnect Access, there's much more "new" here than meets the eye.
Lexus' new corporate design face may not appeal to everyone, but it looks great on the more conservative choice among large yacht-like luxury sedans. Now with F-Sport and Hybrid models, the LS lineup is more about smoothness and effortless power than irrelevant track times.
The sporty Veloster is a blast to drive, but its 138-horsepower 1.6 doesn't quite match its "hot hatch" aspirations. Enter the 2013 Veloster Turbo, with 201 horses and even sharper driver responses.
You may need some celebrity cred to jump through the long waiting list of Tesla Model S preorders, but this all-electric sedan is the first to offer enough range to actually be usable for all your daily driving needs: up to 265 miles, the EPA says.
The new Kia Quoris, the Korean large sedan with the oddball name, also features a gorgeous new clean-sheet design, and will be the most luxurious Kia model ever released. More than a reskinned Hyundai Genesis, the Quoris will be the new flagship for Kia's commitment to advanced safety features.
