It may be late July, but already consumers eager for the new 2016 cars that haven’t already hit the market are looking forward to the ones about to debut. While some of the completely redesigned 2016 models have yet to have an announced launch, we’ve singled out a few of the new 2016 vehicles coming soon for your reading (and future shopping) pleasure.
2016 Evoque – The five-seat 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque luxury SUV will arrive in dealerships this fall, available in two- and four-door body styles. The Evoque, the smallest of the Range Rover models, gets a few updates for the 2016 model year; including a new InControl Touch infotainment system, 14-way adjustable seats with optional massagers; a drowsiness monitor and lane assist tech features. Evoque buyers can expect high quality and first-class amenities throughout the vehicle.
2016 Cadillac CT6 – Six inches longer than thesedan it’s based on, the all-new 2016 Cadillac CT6, available this fall, is constructed with extensive use of aluminum. Three engines are available: a new 400-horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, a 335-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 or a 265-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine. All-wheel drive is available in both V6 engines, while the four cylinder only comes in rear-wheel drive. Other CT6 highlights include premium leather front seats with five massaging programs, quad-zone climate control and a rear seat that can recline as much as 3.3 inches.
2016 Toyota Mirai – Lessees (at $499 per month for 36 months) of the all-new 2016 Toyota Mirai hydrogen-powered vehicle will get free hydrogen as part of the deal when they take delivery of the Mirai in October. Finding a functioning hydrogen fueling facility may be somewhat problematic, however, and the car is only available in California to start. With seating for four, the Mirai is quite well equipped with front and rear heated leather seats, a navigation system and dual-zone climate control.
2016 – Coming in the fall is a totally redesigned 2016 Honda Civic, which reportedly looks a lot like the Civic Concept pictured here. Highlights include more cabin room, an upgraded interior, better connectivity, and two four-cylinder engines (the base 2.0-liter and uplevel 1.5-liter turbo). The Civic sedan will roll out first, followed by the coupe.
2016 – Not a complete redo but a significant updating from the model that’s been in the market since 2013, the 2016 Honda Accord midsize sedan and coupe will be in dealerships this August. The first thing buyers will notice is the sportier exterior styling, and 19-inch wheels available to enhance the sporty look and feel. A new seven-inch color touchscreen display works in conjunction with the Accord’s infotainment system and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphones. Honda’s Sensing suite of safety and tech features, available as standalone options (and standard on Honda Touring) includes lane keeping assist, collision mitigation braking system with forward collision warning, road departure mitigation with lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.
2016 – Although it weighs about 300 pounds less than its predecessor and the wheelbase is 3.6-inches longer, the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu midsize sedan has excitingly svelte new styling, a larger back seat, and, coming later on, a “real” hybrid. A full roster of standard and available safety technology includes blind spot monitoring, forward collision alert (with following distance monitor), lane keeping assistance with lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and a new Teen Driver system – to help parents monitor their teen’s driving behavior: distance traveled, where the car was driven, highest speed, and whether certain safety systems were activated.
2016 RS – The long-awaited 2016 Ford Focus RS will finally be available in America sometime next spring. Powered by a 315-horsepower 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (from the Mustang, no less), the RS will scoot quite fast and promises sporty driving, to say the least. Ford says it’s the fastest and most powerful vehicle in the Focus lineup. Brembo™ disc brakes and 19-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and Ford performance all-wheel drive with dynamic torque vectoring help seal the deal. Inside there’s Recaro® sport seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and alloy pedals.
2016 Scion iM and iA – Designed to appeal to younger buyers, the compact 2016 Scion iM hatchback and subcompact iA sedan are also attractively priced. The larger Scion iM starts at $18,460 and arrives at dealerships September 1, while the iA (the first-ever sedan for Scion) begins at $15,700 and is also going on sale September 1. Both Scion models feature a full roster of airbags and standard rearview camera.
2016 – When it goes on sale this fall, the all-new 2016 Jaguar XF will come in a choice of five versions, with two supercharged V6 engines, a host of advanced safety equipment, including surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitors, autonomous parking and braking assist. Pricing is expected to start just over the $50,000 mark.
2016 Buick Cascada – Expected in spring 2016, the 2016 Buick Cascada is an all-new sporty convertible from the Buick brand. The luxury Cascada will be powered by a 200-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. StabiliTrak technology and 20-inch wheels further add to the appeal. Further product information and pricing will be announced closer to introduction.
While we know you can’t wait to get behind the wheel of some of these exciting new products, stay tuned for even more 2016 vehicles that will also soon be on the way. We’ll bring all the details as they’re available.
