Cooley On Cars
Top 5: Hot cars we're hyped for in 2017Cooley runs down the hottest cars we're expecting to hit show floors this year.
[MUSIC] Now this top five list are the top five hot and sporty cars that are coming this year, that I think you should wait for if you're going to be buying a car of that type. Now let's be honest, the new Honda Odyssey and Toyota Camry [UNKNOWN] these guys in industry importance, but I want to talk about cars and have a little something that's rear pixie dust. The whole brand of a car make os so they hope. I also don't want to talk about crossovers, for once this year. Let's get started with the Top 5, Hot and Sporty rides you might want to check your notebook for. [MUSIC] Number five, or the Audi A5 & S5. Call these guys hot and hotter. The tupe and the tab rio of each one arrives spring of 2017, but then, a little later in the year Something really interesting. We're gonna get a 5 liftback and that's taking a page from the Audi A7 which was wickedly successful. May I say it now and forever. Hatchbacks are back and they're hot again. [SOUND] Number 4 See what I just said about lift backs and hatch backs being hot again because here's another one. A four door CS stinger with a lift back fast back roof line. Also rear wheel drive and available twin turbo V6. High end appointments all round. this is a big move for Kia. It's a big investment in a small sector of sales that also is loke nothing else they have. Consider it kind of a Korean Supra with a couple extra doors. Number three is the first refresh on the sixth generation current Mustang. You can see quite a difference in the face, the headlights, the hood. What you can't see is that they've gotten rid of the V6. There will no longer be that option, you're either gonna get a 2.3 liter turbo 4, or you're gonna get a 5 liter V8. Nothing in the middle. And the availability of Ford's new 10 speed automatically just arrived on the F-150. Inside, an optional 12 inch all LCD instrument panel. [MUSIC] Number two, the highly anticipated Alfa Romeo Giulia They've got some gall. They're going right after the three series right out of the gates. Including with a 505 horsepower version of this guy called the quadrifglio that goes right after the M3 but with even more power. Now notice this, you're never gonna mistake this. For one of the Teutonic cars. This is a very different look and style. That should do them very well and Alfa Romeo's been known for great performance and great handling with the handful of cars they've been able to sell in the US so far. Know they've also got a crossover based on this guy called the Stelvio. But I promised I wouldn't talk about those. Before I get to number one, I've gotta get to this one or you won't speak to me again. And that is the revised Subaru WRX and STi that'll be coming this year. Not a huge difference, so I didn't rank them. You see a lot of front face changes, same Impreza platform underneath. The STi does get a hotter flat 6 at 305 hp now. And a new handmade 6 speed manual transmission. Any news about the WRX is big news around these parts. The number one sporty and sassy car to keep an eye on for the year ahead in my opinion is the Lexus LC. LC 500 Pacific [UNKNOWN] be a hybrid, but when this guy debuts January of 2016 on the show circuit We all sat around with our jaws dropped trying to control the amount of drool that was coming out. It's a stunner. It's a $100,000 Lexus. It's gonna be their new flagship and it could reposition the brand from one that many folks still associate with a lot of affluent AARP-ers. And it's gonna come out swinging at everyone like a drunk in a bar. It's going after 911, S550 Coup, BMW's 650i, all seen as targets. And being built in the same plant in Japan that cranked out the LFA super car certainly won't hurt it's mystique. [MUSIC]
