Best new cars for 2016Back

To celebrate the New Year, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite cars set to take to the UK roads in 2016. Take a look below at our top picks.

MGCSMG C S (available Summer 2016)

It has been nearly 11 years since the collapse of MG Rover and now the company’s renaissance is well underway with the launch of its latest model, the MG C S. Priced from around £18,000, the new MG C S is a trendy Qashqai-sized crossover due to be unveiled this summer. Built to rival some of the larger Crossovers such as the Honda CR-V but with a much lower asking price, it will be interesting to see how the C S fares against other rivals in the crowded market. Certainly, fuel economy is reported to be less competitive than others with only an average 50mpg estimated on the 1.8-litre diesel model.

Ford Edge (available from Spring 2016)

Making its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Euro-spec Ford Edge is based on the new Ford Mondeo and is designed to sit above the EcoSport and Ford Kuga SUVs in Ford’s current model line up. Priced from around £30,000, the Edge is built to rival the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 and comes with a cheaper price tag whilst offering a good deal of space and practicality, 5 seats and a large boot, traits that will potentially sway buyers. Launched with a pair of 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engines with either 188bhp or 207bhp and a range of trim levels, it is expected to go down a storm with buyers.

RangeRoverEvoqueCabrioRange Rover Evoque Convertible (available Spring 2016)

The model we’ve all been waiting for, the Range Rover Evoque convertible is set to hit the market by storm when it goes on sale in Spring 2016. Priced from £47,500, the Evoque convertible will benefit from a full length electric roof and from launch it’s expected to take a premium position in the market. Furthermore, Land Rover are confident the cabrio Evoque will be just as robust and capable off-road as its hard-top brother, and they’ve even included a clever Roll Over Protection System (ROPS) designed for extreme off-road conditions.

Kia Hybrid

Kia has decided to join the fast growing number of manufacturers producing increasingly economical cars with its new Hybrid. On sale from summer 2016 and priced from around £18,000, the Kia Hybrid will be a standalone model within the line-up similar to the Toyota Prius – well known for its eco credentials. The new model will come in the form of a compact crossover, and will rival one of the fastest growing segments in Europe. Whilst it may not be the most efficient hybrid on the market, producing just 60mpg from a 1.6-litre petrol engine, it will be competitively priced.

McLaren540McLaren 540C

If you’re a Formula 1 fan and you’ve money to burn, the highly anticipated McLaren 540C is on its way in early 2016. Priced at £126,000, it will be the cheapest car McLaren has ever produced and will become part of the new Sports Series range, sitting below the more powerful 570S. Built to rival the likes of the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo, the McLaren 540C will be powered by the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine as the 650S and P1. McLaren claims the 540C will be capable of achieving 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 199mph, but we’ll have to wait a few more weeks to find that out.

Aston Martin DB11

We’ve waited a long time for Aston Martin to produce a successor to the highly coveted DB9 and now it is here. Available in late 2016, the new DB11 will be priced at around £170,000 and is predicted to come with a brand new engine even more powerful than the existing 6.0-litre V12 and likely to be turbocharged for better efficiency. the DB11 could be available with a V8 engine similar to that of the Mercedes-Benz AMG’s latest 4.0-litre twin-turbo engine, with the interior also sharing similarities with Mercedes S-Class. The DB11 will be the first in a new range of Aston Martin cars to include an all-electric Rapide and DBX crossover.

FiatTipoFiat Tipo (available from September 2016)

The Fiat Tipo is back having originally made its debut back in 1988 when Ford produced the small family hatchback for just 7 years until 1995. This year, the Tipo will re-enter the Fiat line up in September and will be re-built to rival popular compact hatchbacks such as the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra. On sale for an estimated £15,000, the Tipo will also be offered as a spacious five-door practical estate. Engines available include a 1.4 and 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.3 and 1.6 diesel.
