Kelley Blue Book recently released its list of 10 Cars that Exude Attitude, highlighting new vehicles that are not just about getting from A to B, but showing some character in the process.
While this list of vehicles may not apply to everyone, perhaps those who are only looking for a family car or people only concerned with fuel efficiency, KBB said for every 100 'ordinary Joes' there is a Dennis Rodman, meaning some individuals are after a particular style when buying a car.
"KBB.com's list of 10 Cars that Exude Attitude showcases vehicles that stand out from the crowd, cars that our editors think have undeniable personality," said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst of Kelley Blue Book 's KBB.com. "From a sub-$20,000 subcompact to an exotic six-figure sports car, our list demonstrates that drivers can buy attitude-filled rides at many different price-points."
Some of the vehicles on the list of 10 Cars that Exude Attitude include the 2014 Lamborghini Aventador, Chevrolet Camaro, Mini Cooper Paceman and Nissan Juke.
Car sales strong in April
Car sales have been strong thus far in 2013. Just in April, TrueCar.com reported that light vehicle sales came in at more than 1.3 million vehicles last month, accounting for a 10.3 percent increase on year-over-year comparison. The website also reported that those sales translate to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 15.3 million new sales, up from 14.1 million on year-over-year comparison and unchanged from March 2013.
"New car sales continued their stable year-over-year growth curve in April, with improved consumer demand propelling the sales rate above 15 million units for the sixth month in a row," said Jesse Toprak, senior analyst for TrueCar.com. "Relatively lower gas prices coupled with small business demand improving for trucks resulted in a strong showing for small and large pickups in April, a trend we expect to see strengthen even further for the rest of 2013."
Those after a vehicle in 2013 are finding that there are not many incentives available to convince them to buy. While many would-be car buyers put off a purchase once the recession hit, affordability has once again returned and demand has picked up. Therefore, automakers are not forced to offer incentives to get business in the door.
