Asian vehicles have a lot to offer in 2023. Some are completely new, and others are polished-out 2022 versions, but the thing that unites them is their reliability and performance. If you are looking forward to buying one, which one should it be? Well, to help you in that matter, we have put together a list of three Asian vehicles that stand out a little bit more than others. They have been reviewed and talked about since their official launch, so you can be sure they are good and worth it.
2023 Hyundai Elantra N
The Hyundai Elantra N shocked the world with its release and appearance. It's a big competitor to the Hondas sedan, the Civic Type R, and they come really close. But let's get into the specs and numbers. The engine is from a Hyundai Veloster N, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder making 275-286 HP. Despite it being a 2.0L, it is quite fast, it goes from 0 to 60 in just 5 seconds, and keep in mind that this is a sedan. There are two transmission options: an 8-speed automatic and a good-old 6-speed manual. Looks and quality also carry over to the inside with driver-oriented features.
2023 Lexus RX
Lexus released a real crowd-pleaser this year, the new and revamped RX - coming in 350, 350h, and 500h trims, "h" standing for hybrid. This is one of Lexus' most popular SUV models, and it has changed quite a lot. A new interior, which is more relaxed and luxurious, with a very good infotainment system. There are two engine options for both the normal and hybrid versions - a 2.4L and 2.5L inline-4 paired with a hybrid system for the "h" models. It also has a lot of safety features and cruise control settings, making it a perfect family car.
2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5
While it's the second Hyundai on our list, this one really got the crowds excited when it came out. Starting from the looks, it's nothing like we have seen, especially from Hyundai. It's a crossover SUV with a very distinctive design. It's fully electric, with power options from a single motor making 168 HP and a two motor - 320 HP. It is a truly unique vehicle, made to catch the eye and save on carbon emissions because it is an EV.
