As the year draws to a close, the Motors.co.uk team brings you a features packed round up of our favourite car releases this year. From the all-new Focus to the Audi A6 Avant there’s bound to be something on our list to suit all tastes and budgets.
All –New Ford Focus: The new Focus boats impressive features and delivers a somewhat hassle free driving experience. On top of all this, advancements in Ford ECOnetic Technology mean that the new Focus offers low CO2 emissions, which is great news for your wallet and the environment. Brand new features include Active Park Assist, which parks the car so you don’t have to as well as Lane Departure Warnings which alert you before you drift out of lane, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
2011 Freelander 2 S: For those who lead an action packed life, the Freelander 2 S offers practicality and style. With 190-horsepower, this car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 8.7 seconds. New advanced features include automatic dual zone climate control which makes temperature much easier to adjust. As the first ever Land Rover not designed for off road use, the car is available new from £21,695. It’s not for those on a budget, but if you have the cash to splash out, this motor won’t disappoint.
VW Polo Match: Highlights of the Polo Match include super stylish 15-inch ‘Castille’ alloy wheels, front fog lights and heat-insulating tinted rear windows. Not only is it visually appealing, but comfort and convenience are prominent inside the car. Manual air conditioning, an RCD 310 radio / CD player, multifunction computer and MDI (Multi Device Interface) with iPod connectivity all come as standard. Other snazzy features include electric windows, remote central locking and electrically adjustable exterior mirrors. What more could you ask for?
BMW Sports Hatch: One of the key features of the new BMW sports hatch is the fact that it has no ignition lock. The car can be started with the remote key anywhere in the vehicle. With more boot and interior space than older models, the new BMW Sports is ideal for families. The Drive Performance Control switch even helps the driver to reduce fuel consumption by altering the throttle responsiveness and energy management systems.
Audi A6 Avant: Talk about being spoilt for choice. The Audi A6 Avant offers customers a choice of six engines; four diesels and two petrol types. The new model is bigger, lighter and performs much better than the model it replaces and the revamped A5 features a new steering column stalk with a narrow chrome clasp. As an extra feature, the rear suspension bearings and damper tuning have also been updated allowing for more precise handling.
