Three of the Best New Cars on the Road for 2013…

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Defensive Driving Tips

Car shopping can be very stressful. There are so many different makes and models and colors available that is can be downright overwhelming to pick one. Have no fear; we are here to help. Here is our roundup of three of the best vehicles for three different types of people: the soccer mom, the speed demon, and the heavy hauler (sorry, we just didn’t have time to pick one for every type of person that there is).

For the Soccer Mom: Infiniti JX

This sporty SUV is the perfect vehicle for the soccer mom that doesn’t want to feel so much like a soccer mom. It has the highest safety ratings in its class to keep that precious cargo safe. The 2013 Infinity JX is also loaded with fancy technologies to transport any mom into the future. For example, it boasts lane departure warnings and front collision warnings to keep you alert. (Of course, if you drive defensively you probably won’t need these. But they are nice to have just in case.) It also comes standard with leather seats so you can easily clean up all those messes. The smart key entry, remote start, rearview camera, and rear entertainment center are just a few more features that make the Infiniti JX worth its $41K price tag.2

For the Speed Demon: Scion FR-S

The Scion brand has come a long way since they debuted their “box car” back in 2002. In fact, the 2013 Scion FR-S is anything but boxy. It has curves that would even make a supermodel envious. Plus, it handles as well as cars double the price. That is why US News has ranked the Scion FR-S the top ranking affordable sports car for 2013. The average price is only $25K, but it could rival a $100K car with its striking appearance and thrilling performance on the road. It even boasts an average of 26 MPG gas mileage and has a much better crash test rating than other sports cars. Many car experts claim that the Scion FR-S is the biggest bargain of the year.

For the Heavy Hauler: Ram 1500 imagescashh0er

What would your ideal truck have? It would probably have extremely comfortable seats, good gas mileage, and remarkable handling. Well, you are in luck because the 2013 Ram 1500 has all of this, and more. It has three different engines available, with the optional V6 boasting an impressive 17 MPG city and 25 MPG highway. Not bad for a truck, right? Even with the V6 engine, it is very efficient at towing and hauling lighter loads. If bigger loads are common practice in your life, you may want to opt for one of the V8 engines instead. Whatever engine you choose, you will ride in ultimate luxury, as the Ram 1500 has the most comfortable interior in its class and handles sharp corners like a sports car (okay, maybe not exactly like a sports car, but considering it’s a truck, it’s really pretty good).
