Top 10 Cars of the Paris Motor Show



Quote:
10. Lexus LF-CC Concept

The list of impressive new models at this year’s Paris Motor Show is a long one, but we’ve narrowed down the ten most interesting, exciting and important vehicles, starting with the Lexus LF-CC Concept.

A look ahead at the future of the brand, this concept previews the first ever Lexus IS coupe. With dramatic styling including an even wilder version of the spindle grille, Lexus is also prepping an all-new hybrid 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine for the rear-drive luxury two-door.

6. 2014 Volkswagen Golf

Exciting? Perhaps not, but the importance of Volkswagen’s newest Golf can’t be underestimated.

The seventh-generation Golf rides on an all new platform helping it shed 220 lbs of weight. That factor, combined with new engines, helps the car improve fuel economy by as much as 23 percent.

Also new in the new Golf are the engines, with a base 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder making either 85-hp or 138-hp. Plus, a diesel engine is also available with either 105-hp or 150-hp.

Revealed for Europe it’s not clear which of these new engines will make it to America. What we do know, however, is that as a 2013 model year car overseas, it will arrive for the 2014 model year here.

*******************

Hmmmm ... the GTI gets lighter, more power, better fuel efficiency and roomier. It will be nice to see what she rings in at when introduced to North America in fall of 2013.
