What to look out for in 2012?

As 2011 comes to an end, it is time again to look forward to what is in store next year.

If the current trend is anything to go by, there will surely be more concepts and new models to look out for in 2012 and surely the move for more hybrid and eco-friendly cars will most likely take centrestage. First up is the new Audi S7 which will be the 4 door 2+2 ‘four door coupe’ deemed to be the most handsome car in this category which will come with a V8 engine boosting out 420 horses.

And then there is the new BMW 3 Series Sedan which will come with a new design and surely more advanced technological gadgets. For the compact car enthusiasts, Fiat will be rolling out the Fiat 500 Abarth where it will be the sportier and surely more serious version of this mini machine.
Honda is also set to roll out the new Honda Accord following the refreshed designs of the Civic and the CR-V.
Meanwhile, from the Koreans, you can expect the new Kia Cadenza which is set to continue the success of the Forte and the recently launched Optima. For the supercar lover, the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera is a model to look out for next year which despite holding true to its original design is faster, lighter and surely meaner. Not sure if that will come to Malaysia but if it does, the new Volkswagen Golf R will be one of the most anticipated models to reach our shores. From our own stable, Proton had just rolled out their new Exora Bold Premium and Exora Prime models which will set to position the company better for competition next year.

So here’s to another year of interesting automotive roll-outs and new concepts. Happy New Year 2012!
