New SUV in 2016
category SUV has been one of the most prolific of the market, a result of his growing popularity among the buyers. This year have been very numerous presentations of new models, some of which are yet to come as the Audi Q2.
in Addition to the list of features offered below, we propose the following guidelines to refer to all models of this popular segment:
compact SUVS and affordable (Renault Capture, Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008…)
SUV medium (Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage, SEAT Ateca…)
SUV midsize premium (Mercedes GLA, BMW X1, Audi Q3…)
SUV 7 seater (Kia Sorento, Nissan X-Trail, Range Rover Discovery Sport…)
Premium SUVS (Porsche Macan, Mercedes GLC, Audi Q5…)
SUV large luxury (Range Rover, Porsche Cayenne, Volvo XC90…)
The price of SEAT Ateca is one of their main sales pitches, and taking into account that it is a cousin of the new Volkswagen Tiguan with which it shares its platform and mechanical. A equipment is very complete and very technological, filled with elements of security of last generation and driving aids make it a family SUV very tempting as an alternative to the Qashqai, Sportage and company.
The Volkswagen Tiguan can be considered the semi-premium SEAT Ateca, when you have finished a point higher (barely) and especially with a few centimeters more length to accommodate a trunk to something greater and a rear bench seat slider.
dashboard fully digital can be a big plus not only for users, more geeks, but for any driver, as it allows to keep the information that is most relevant at each moment in function of the tastes of the driver.
The Kia Sportage went on sale the beginning of the year, with solid sales pitch as they are outstanding quality combined with a price that is very tight. This SUV with 7-year warranty, a cousin of the Hyundai Tucson, with which it shares its platform and mechanical, is one of the bets more robust to unseat its absolute leadership on the almighty Nissan Qashqai.
The Ssangyong XLV is one of the most spacious cars by euro invested across the market. It is a Ssangyong Tivoli stretched in 24 cm which will go direct to its colossal trunk of 720 litres of capacity. This stretch affects your back up to remind us dangerously to its big brother the Ssangyong Rhodius, known for being one of the cars more ugly that you can buy. The XLV is sold for this sole argument: infinite space for a minimum price.
is Already on sale the SUV bigger Ford (in Europe, because in the USA has nothing less than three colossi on top of it). The Ford Edge is a large SUV, 5 comfortable seats and an interesting technology offer on all in attendance to the driving, although its level of finishes felt so american origin and is a point behind the best products in the old continent.
With the Porsche Macan in the spotlight and an aesthetic sledgehammer, this attractive SUV is the alternative of a Jaguar in the segment of premium SUVS from luxury to medium format. The main sales argument of the Jaguar F-Pace is its uniqueness and its aesthetic appeal, in addition to a road handling worthy of a sporting. The design and interior finishes, although they are high-level, not just be at the height of the rest of the car, but it can work very well if we are interested in a vehicle that does not have anyone else.
The compact segment is reluctant to leave its position of top sales, despite the push of the SUV. In 2016 have also been interesting new developments that I detail below. To see all the rivals in the group, you can go to our guide with all the compact market.
The MINI Clubman has always been a rare vehicle. Before with its unique rear door reversed, and now with its elongated shape with respect to a MINI 5-door and double rear door style van classic. The MINI Clubman is all personality and style, with the interior characteristic of the MINI with its huge central circle that contains a large screen surrounded now of led lights of color, and seasoned with brilliant mechanical source BMW and high efficiency.
Infiniti Q30 and Infiniti QX30
The latest from Infiniti is the japanese version of the Mercedes A-Class and Mercedes GLA, persentado in Frankfurt 2015 and put up for sale earlier this year. With respect to the Mercedes, with which it shares its platform, engines and gearboxes, the Infiniti Q30 has an aesthetic entirely distinct, both inside and out, and a specific tuning of the Infiniti Group (Nissan-Renault). Their prices are your main sales argument in front of the competition is German, with an interior something more conservative and on the outside fairly original and little seen. The Infiniti QX30 is the version high, equivalent to the Mercedes GLA.
Opel Astra & Opel Astra Sports Tourer
The new Opel Astra and the Opel Astra Sports Tourer is taking a hit in the market of the compact. Its main asset are the prices are more than reasonable and a technological equipment, to totally avant-garde, which puts it at an advantage over rivals most renowned as the Volkswagen Golf. The Astra can equip items such as the excellent headlights dot-matrix smart LED (the last of the last) or a point of Wifi access for up to 7 devices, in addition to being a vehicle with comprehensive and practical. His immediate success of sales, as guarantee.
Renault Mégane and Renault Mégane Sport Tourer
new Renault Mégane and Mégane Sport Tourer has been a small revolution against the conservatism of the previous generation. An aesthetic much more individual and sporty combined with an interior based on a large central touch-screen makes it a car modern and attractive. The Mégane has all the qualities needed to be a best seller, including motors, Renault-Nissan next-generation efficiency by flag.
Sedans and family
In the segment of sedans has also been a change, and to choose from in this group becoming less and less numerous, we propose our guide of the best sedans on the market that you will be able to find models of all prices and sizes selected by our editorial team, as well as our complete guide familiar with all the models on the market.
The Alfa Giulia is the model for reviving the brand, as was the Alfa 156 20 years ago. About the role this is a saloon very attractive with a deep Italian character, rear-wheel drive and a behavior that is proud, but the time that it took to launch it from its initial presentation (a clear indication that the record time spent in its development had not been sufficient) requires us to maintain a point of prudence to evaluate its long term robustness. A saloon for tifosi.
Audi A4 and Audi A4 Avant
are Already on sale the new Audi A4 and Audi A4 Avant, based on the MQB platform of the group, and in which everything has changed compared to the previous generation except for its appearance. It is difficult to tell them apart. The why of this decision ultraconservative Audi I don’t know it, because the new A4 might be the forefront of its segment by incorporating technology and by its infinite quality interior, and instead is content with go totally unnoticed and be a car very much already seen since its launch. Discreet luxury in the limit with total anonymity.
Renault Talisman and Talisman Sport Tourer
Renault returns to the fray in a segment that you have always been resisted (large sedans) with the Renault Talisman is a model that has all the ingredients to succeed: technology, spaciousness, layout, comfort, mechanical,… all the ingredients except one: a premium brand on the hood that justifies the investment in a car of this size and price. In a segment dominated by the premium brands German, could be an interesting option and much more economical. We stayed with the family.
Kia Optima and Optima SW
The new Kia Optima in both version berlina as in the family version can be considered a direct rival of the Renault Talisman, a car spacious, comfortable, well equipped and built, but lacks a premium brand that endorsement. The objective is the fleet, and its argument that sales of the low cost of maintenance and the 7 year warranty that backs it up. A car to be proud of your purchase, although the world will never understand. We stayed (again) with the family.
Volvo S90 and Volvo V90
The new Volvo S90 (sedan) and Volvo V90 (wagon) are two of the releases most unique and attractive of 2016. The latest in style and nordic design, ultimate in security technology and driving aids, including auto-pilot up to 130 km/h and the latest in engines 4-cylinder supercharged of an ingenious and mechanical hybrid, this Volvo plant face to any saloon German that put him ahead, including in the brand new Mercedes E-Class, with which has practically been left alone in the category, waiting for the new Audi A6 and BMW 5-Series still to be revealed.
Mercedes E Class and Mercedes E Class Estate
The new Mercedes E-Class is the jewel in the crown for the German brand. A luxury sedan with a impressive interior dual giant screen, quality superb and a level of technology that exceeds at times that of its older brother, the Mercedes s Class. Has a very interesting system of automatic driving Drive Pilot that can virtually take control of the car (especially on motorways) and to make us shoot to infinity with total security, in addition to countless options, and security solutions, entertainment or finish that makes a real living room on wheels.
