Our top 5 2016 automotive predictions

What we’re expecting in the car world over the next 366 days

A new year means a whole lot of car news and we reckon the automotive industry is going to get shaken up during 2016. Last year was massive – Ferrari officially went down the turbo charging route like everyone else, Aston gave us a glimpse into their future with the DB10 for Spectre and Volkswagen had a very interesting year indeed, but we think 2016 will trump 2015 like a Cayman to a Corsa.

New Audi A3

Good things come in threes. New Audi A3 is the best yet

The new Audi A3 has been brought right up to date with new engines, major technology updates and what Audi is calling ‘styling refinements’. It may look similar to the previous model, but the A3 is now Audi’s biggest selling model of the entire range and, with these latest updates, the A3 will continue to be a very tempting alternative to the BMW 1 Series and VW Golf. It should be easier to justify the cost as well, considering just how much technology now comes as standard. For example, you’ll find automatic xenon headlights, automatic wipers and cruise control, even on the most basic models.A new three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine is now available, as well as a newly developed 2.0-litre petrol, while the hot new Audi S3 gets a boost in power to a ludicrous 305.8bhp. The S3 range gets the same cosmetic updates as the standard A3 family to help further increase its sharp and sporty exterior. The real highlights are the addition of the optional Audi virtual cockpit, which has also found its way onto recent models like the new Audi A4 and the new Audi TT. A 12.3-inch screen replaces traditional moving dials and displays everything, including the speedometer, satellite navigation maps and the radio station you’re currently listening to. The 2016 new Audi A3 may look like a modest update, but why change something that’s already doing very well? If you want a premium car that feels years ahead of the competition in terms of technology, the Audi A3 is now even better than before.

Why you will love the Audi Q2

Meet the New Audi SUV you’re going to want

The Audi Q2 brings some much needed fun to the Audi Q range of SUVs with huge customisation options and a sporty, rugged look aimed at younger buyers looking for a sportier alternative to the MINI Countryman. Packed with loads of tech like the Audi Virtual Cockpit, Audi pre-sense and a Wi-Fi hotspot, the Q2 easily comes out ahead of competitors when it comes to gadgets and with its R8-inspired C-pillar blades, it’s got quite a lot going for it in terms of style as well. Think of the Q2 as an A1 SUV – a well-priced, highly customisable alternative to the MINI range, with all the quality you’d expect from Audi. Like the A1 the Q2 is no doubt going to be one of the most popular models in the Audi range and you’re going to want one…

New MINI Seven

New Mini Seven announced. Design inspiration taken from classic Austin Mini

BMW has decided to look to the original Mini’s rich history and iconic design language with its new Mini Seven, the first design model of the current Mk3 generation of Mini. Inspired by classic Mini aesthetics, with exclusively designed exterior and interior design features, this special edition also has a bespoke option pack developed specifically for the model called Mini Seven Chili. Taking its name from the very first Mini, the 1959 Austin Seven, the new Seven joins the current generation Mini Hatch range in 5-door or 3-door form.

New Volkswagen Amarok

Volkswagen’s premium pickup gains six-cylinder powerplant

More power is heading the way of the new VW Amarok 2016, when it becomes the only model in its segment with a high performance V6 diesel later this year, pushing out 224hp. In a class where more is better and muscularity matters, that should do the VW’s cause no harm at all. The pickup also gets subtly refreshed exterior styling and a new dashboard, revised and updated running gear and – perhaps most crucially – a larger towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes.

New Porsche 718 Cayman

Smaller engine. More power. All you need to know about the new Porsche Cayman

With a new name and a new engine, the biggest changes about the new Porsche 718 Cayman may not be its looks. Porsche has added ‘718’ to the name as a tribute to mid-engined sports cars from the 50’s and 60’s that used a mid-mounted four-cylinder boxer engines, the same as the new Cayman. This may come as a shock at first that the charismatic six-cylinder is no longer available, but losing two cylinders has done very little to reduce the performance or desirability of the Cayman. As with most new Porsches the design isn’t necessarily revolutionary, but then there wasn’t anything wrong with the previous model. Porsche have made the new Cayman slightly more muscular with taut proportions and prominent air intakes at the front and sides as well as a sweeping profile to boost the dynamic looks of the 718. If the new model is anything like the previous Cayman then all these changes will do very little to harm what is essentially a very good sports car. More direct than the Boxster with more focus on the driver, the 718 Cayman has a lot to live up to.

New Porsche 718 Boxster

New name. New engines. It’s the new Porsche Boxster

A change in name and change in engine translates into a change of power as well – the standard car now makes 296bhp (previously 261bhp) while the S makes 345bhp (previously 311bhp), so losing those two cylinders and gaining a turbo does get you some extra power.

New Honda Civic 1.4 i-VTEC sport

Type R looks without the price tag, this is Honda’s new Civic Sport

Sporty as standard, the new Honda Civic Sport is a great compromise giving buyers the fast looks they want with the frugal engines they need. Nearly half the price of the range-topping Type R and with an engine nearly half the size, the new 1.4 i-VTEC Honda Civic Sport is the model to go for if you want the raciest looking model in the range without the associated cost of fuel and insurance. Aside from the sporty looks that include 17-inch alloy wheels, a unique colour-coded rear spoiler and similar design characteristics of the Civic Type R, the Sport is quite sophisticated inside and comes with a wealth of standard features. Included as standard is a DAB radio, City Brake Active that will brake for you in slow moving traffic to avoid an accident, climate control, front and rear parking sensors and Honda’s Connect infotainment system. The 1.4 i-VTEC petrol engine isn’t the most powerful or the cleanest, but is ideal for mixed driving. Available from just £199 a month on a three-year PCP deal with 5.9% APR, you could be driving the Civic Sport after a £3,415 deposit. Alternatively for £18,380 on the road it’s yours, and considering the base-model starts from £16,470, we think this is a very tempting deal.

Tesla model S auto parking

Tesla’s latest update allows you to summon your Model S

The latest Tesla Autopilot update adds yet even more functionality to the already impressive Model S that now allows you to ‘summon’ your Tesla from your garage and send it back to park. Back in 2015 we saw the first Autopilot that was pushed ‘over the air’ which instantly allowed semi-autonomous driving, an automotive first that a simply software update would add new functions to a standard car.
