From sports cars to luxury SUVs and hot hatches to mould-breakers – there are plenty of hot new cars hitting the streets in 2016 – here are 20 of the best…
Alfa Romeo Giulia – this sporting saloon will do battle with the Jaguar XE, BMW 3-Series and Audi A4 in the compact executive sector. No mean task, even for the awesome Quadrifoglio pictured here
Aston Martin DB11 – just a teaser of the badge for the DB9 replacement, but we expect it to bear more than a little resemblance to James Bond’s DB10 from SPECTRE
Bentley Bentayga – billed as “the most powerful, most luxurious, most exclusive and fastest SUV in the world”
Bugatti Chiron – only this little Bugatti Christmas card teaser is available, but we think the Veyron successor will do 0-62mph in 2.2 seconds and hit 290mph!
Ferrari F12 tdf – short for Tour de France (long story), this is a 769bph V12 thoroughbred. Enough said.
FIAT 124 Spider – the return of a classic name, though purists aren’t happy that FIAT’s new sports car is based on Mazda’s MX-5
Ford Focus RS – another classic name is back… this time with all-wheel-drive and a 2.3-litre engine producing 345bhp
Honda NSX – the second-generation NSX supercar will finally arrive in 2016. Even the Civic Type R will look ordinary compared to this when it hits Honda’s showrooms
Infiniti QX30 – built in Britain, Nissan’s luxury arm launches a svelte SUV
Jaguar F-PACE – the first SUV from the iconic British car maker… and it’s a stunner
Kia Sportage – the fourth-generation Sportage is certainly distinctive
Lamborghini Huracan Spyder – a topless treat for every schoolboy’s bedroom wall… and a few lucky owners too
Lotus 3-Eleven – simply the fastest production Lotus ever made!
Maserati Levante – expect Maserati’s mid-size luxury crossover SUV to look not unlike the Kubang concept from a few years ago
McLaren 540 C Coupé – at £126,00, it’s the “most attainable McLaren yet”
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – the first big open-top Merc since the early 1970s
Range Rover Evoque Convertible – a mould-breaker (the first open-top luxury SUV) which looks so good in the metal
Rolls-Royce Dawn – simply the sexiest Rolls-Royce ever
Tesla Model X – will the falcon-winged wonder be a game-changer like the Model S? Well, there’s certainly no other SUV like it!
Volvo S90 – a handsome executive saloon from Sweden, but will it be a match for the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class, as well as the Jaguar XF?
