From supercars to saloons here are some of the highly anticipated cars we should expect to see in 2016.
After multiple attempts at creating an SUV, it’s good to see that the production for the fourth model in the Bentley SUV range, design wise, looks considerably better.
Using 600bhp twin-turbocharged W12 which propels all two and a half tonnes of Crewe’s finest to a top speed of 187mph. The car is expected to be available with Diesel and Hybrid power plants at some point in the future. Like most things wearing a Bentley badge, they don’t come cheap, at £160,000 it’s one of the most expensive SUVs ever.
Range Rover Evoque Convertible
We’ve had coupe-SUVs and performance SUV’s, so surely a convertible SUV was bound to be the next natural step?
The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is the world’s first luxurious convertible SUV, something that could prove to be the next big thing in the car industry. This brand new style required some major manufacturing changes. From a simple fabric canopy to a full-length metal folding top. This four wheel drive naturally is 277 kg heavier and slower than the standard model.
Despite its target market, it still possesses it’s off-road abilities. For this advanced model, you can expect to pay a whopping £47,500.
Alfa Romeo Giulia
The name will roll off your tongue like a good bottle of wine, it’s a stylish, rear-wheel drive saloon with a choice of four engines available from launch. In a market that demands prestige and performance in equal measure, this Giulia is well equipped, beautifully designed and, of course, attractively priced.
Built to rival their German competitors and forming part of an ambitious growth strategy that will also see an SUV in the coming years. You should expect prices to start between £27,000 and £29,000.
The newest and smallest member of the Q family is an aim at a younger target market. They’ve ditched the old styling and made it chunkier, funkier and more customisable than any other Audi out there, including a bright choice of colour palette.
As usual, the cabin is upmarket, however, you can expect the running costs on this model to be relatively low, powered by the usual 2.0 TDI diesel 1.4 TFSI petrol units. Set to be on sale in August at around £22,000.
As for the tech, on this 5 seater, the kit list will be a full digital Virtual Cockpit instrument display, LED and ambient lighting, plus adaptive damping and automatic city braking.
Aston Martin DB11
Aston’s new DB sports car features a brand new bold design, nothing compared to the previous cars in the range as well as a brand new engine. The front end, you’ll find, is significantly more sculpted and muscular compared with its 13-year-old precedent.
A two-turbocharged 5.2 litre V12 lies under the bonnet with an impressive 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 200mph. To add to this brand new redesigned version, you’ll find a new wheel design which complements this refreshed look perfectly.
Prices for this beauty start from £154,900.
BMW M2 Coupe
The newest addition to the BMW M range not only is the smallest in the M family but also one of the most engaging rear-wheel-drive models in the world. A combination of sporting prowess and a classic rear wheel drive.
This beast has some clever engineering – including an active rear differential, M-specific stability control and adaptable sports suspension. Not to mention the dual-clutch auto which will allow you to switch gears like never before. With a top speed of 155 mph, this machine will get you from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds.
Priced at £44,070.
