A few hours of the end of the year 2016 tap look back and recapitulate what have been the releases more important of the last 12 months. As you can imagine, the number of models that different manufacturers have launched on the market has been very high and we have had all kinds, from utilitarian economic supercars that exceed one million euros.
For this reason we are going to focus on the best releases, the most important, of greater depth, although we also have been forced to “cram” in this top5 one of the cars most unique and quick of the world for all the excitement that has brought upon itself in recent years. So as not to hurt the feelings of anyone else, have decided to sort them by alphabetical order. Today you will be the jury and we hope that we are informed if you agree, or if would you change any model from this list.
Alfa Romeo Giulia
Alfa Romeo is in a a process of renewal of its products, but it is not a renewal either. Alpha wants to regain its identity, that philosophy where the design, the sportiness and the driving sensations were everything to the company, by focusing more on these aspects than, for example, to take full advantage of every inch of the passenger compartment or the trunk. The first model of this new era for the brand is the Alfa Romeo Giulia, that we had the opportunity to try during your national presentation at the mid-year.
My partner Mario defined it as “the king of the supercars” when finally presented officially in the Geneva, and not wrong in the slightest. With the difficult challenge of replacing the very Bugatti Veyron, the Bugatti Chiron increased the power to reach 1500 HP. Such power does not come out of nothing, and that is the heart of this super sports car French is a W16 with 8 liter displacement and turbocharging using four turbos. Their benefits are of a heart attack, with a 0 to 100 in 2.5 seconds and 0 to 300 km/h in 13,6 seconds. Its top speed exceeds that of a Formula 1, reaching up to 420 km/h.
With the birth of the Citroën C4 Cactus arrived the bling Airbumps, which soon became famous. This third generation of the Citroën C3, presented just a few weeks ago, you can also count with these toppers that give some personality to your image. It will be a model which is very important for the French brand of the two chevrones, and that is that remember that the segments with the highest sold at present are the B and C. now available at dealers, currently can be configured with powers of between 68 and 110 HP.
The Spanish firm with headquarters in Martorell has slow to launch its first crossover, maybe too much, but it already has among its range of products. Taking the base of the Seat León, the Seat Ateca is positioned as a tough rival for models already established in this segment that is booming, fighting you with products such as the Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan, among many others. The data dealings are the best judges that can be, and the todocamino Seat is sweeping in this sense. Yes, we cannot deny our want to see some day a Seat Ateca Cupra.
The Toyota C-HR is one of the releases most important to the brand nippon. Aesthetically, in the interior and on the exterior, hto break with the schemas that we had used from Toyota, but it has also managed to take advantage of the strong pull of their vehicles powered by a hybrid system. In this way, the C-HR will only be placed on the market in our country in its hybrid variant, which yields 122 CV and approves a consumption of 3,6 l/100 km
