While most of us can easily recognize many of the automotive logos we see on vehicles around us, many don’t know the meaning behind them. Why does Ford have a blue oval, where did the Chevrolet bowtie come from and what in the world does the snake mean on the Alfa Romeo logo? These are all questions we can ask ourselves and maybe only wonder about on those long nights with nothing else to do. While this may not be a topic of everyday conversation you can impress your friends with your knowledge of what different car logos mean. You can also see this list in the form of a video, if you want.
For many years the standard engine for fuel mileage was a four-cylinder but there has always been a trade-off when you purchase a car with a four-cylinder engine; boredom. These cars often brought in minimal excitement on the road and from under the hood which meant we would not have the feeling or the sound we wanted. Of course, with any rule there is an exception and there have been some exciting four-cylinder cars that gave us the engine note we wanted to hear. These beauties have given us the sound we wanted to go along with an impressive fuel efficiency to enjoy as well.
Alfa Romeo did not make a splash in the US market for many years and when we saw the company return a few years ago what they offered was the limited (severely limited actually) production 8C Competizione coupe and 8C Spider. A few years later and continuing for this model year the 4C is a much more livable item at a better price, not as limited production and with the Alfa Romeo feel. Of course we couldn’t just have the 4C sports car we also had to enjoy the 4C Spider and the success of this pair allowed Alfa Romeo to announce it was going to offer us a new car for 2016.
Every year we see a long list of new cars come out and sometimes a short list of cars that will no longer be built. With these new offerings on the market it’s nearly impossible to contain the excitement that we feel before they finally make it to market. Before these cars even find their way to the dealerships we want to learn all we can about what they are capable of doing and how they will drive. Of course the actual driving of a new car is what makes it the most exciting, but until they reach the market and offers us a drive here are seven new cars that are coming out soon which you should be excited about and ready to drive for a lot of fun.
