It is no exaggeration to say that each year, literally hundreds of models of new cars reach the market and become yet another possible make and model for millions of car buying consumers. There are now so many different alternatives on the new car market that it is possible for millions of people looking to overlook and miss the good cars amid the noise and confusion.
There are a stable of brands whose makers pour even tens of millions of dollars into brand awareness. Well-known examples of these are the likes of the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Ford Fusion and Explorer. Unfortunately this leaves out another several dozen cars or more that deserve at the very least a test drive. These vehicles are all too often overlooked. Below are fifteen of these most hidden gem car makes and models.
1. Volvo S60
It is so easy for those consumers looking for a luxury European branded sedan to be star struck by the dominant German standout stables of Mercedes Benz, BMW, and Audi. An often under-appreciated alternative to the German luxury trio is the Swedish high-quality model Volvo S60. This model of their fine cars deserves a test drive at the least.
The S60 sedan proves to be fun and sporty in its handling. Thanks to its newly designed 302 horsepower engine that comes either turbocharged or supercharged in the T6 Drive trim package, the vehicle is also speedy. Perhaps the best news is that this often overlooked gem of an automobile is priced to sell at literally thousands less than its comparably arrayed Germanic competition.
