2. Ford Mustang
Finally, at long last, one of the USA’s most famous ‘muscle’ cars is coming to the UK. And the best thing is it’s even been customised for right-hand drive. So for the first time you can have your own Mustang without having to import it. It’s fair to say that a new global target market has done the new Mustang a world of good. It looks fantastic. Sleek, modern and sexy it epitomises the entire Mustang brand. The majority of UK models will contain the 2.3 litre four-cylinder engine. But if you want to get the full enjoyment out of this American powerhouse you should look for the 400+bhp V8 engine. This might be one of the most powerful road cars ever to hit British soil.
3. Jaguar XE
It’s been a curious few years for Jaguar. They have entered into the sedan market before with the ill-fated Jaguar X-type. Unfortunately for them it couldn’t hold a candle to the purpose built sedan models being pumped out by the likes of Ford. But unlike many others Jaguar have learnt from their mistake. They went away and invested billions in development of the XE and new engines to accompany. The result is a sleek, sharp and superbly designed sedan model that can finally go toe to toe with others on the market. Jaguar has also prided themselves on the fact that the XE is a market leader in fuel economy.
4. Volkswagen Golf R
Well, Volkswagen have done it again. The people’s company have made themselves an institution through unrivalled German engineering. And they return to us this year with the latest in their successful Golf range. This time it’s the Volkswagen Golf R. With luxurious interior and a beast of an engine the Golf R looks set to make waves worldwide. One of the most attractive features of this model is its price tag. It clocks in at a little under $38,000/£25,000. This makes it a cheap and attractive alternative to the recent influx of expensive luxury models.
