Nissan Micra

Ford Fiesta

One of the most anticipated models of 2017 will be Ford’s small hatchback. The current model is the UK’s best-selling car by a long chalk, so it will have to continue that car’s low price, impressive refinement, good looks and involving driving experience. A range of small-capacity turbocharged three and four-cylinder engines seem almost inevitable.

MG small SUV

As-yet-unnamed smaller sibling to the GS is positioned as a budget alternative to the Nissan Juke. It's claimed to offer "a large amount of equipment for considerably less money than rivals”.

Nissan Qashqai

Best-selling SUV will get a facelift that’s likely to include semi-autonomous driving technology.

Range Rover Sport Coupé

The next Range Rover model will move the brand into sportier and more road-biased territory with a luxury model pitched at the BMW X6 that should cost from around £60,000.

Renault Koleos

Due in July, this new SUV shares a platform with the Kadjar and the Nissan Qashqai. It's offered with two petrol and two diesel engines, with power ranging between 128bhp and 173bhp. The Koleos should cost from about £23,000.

The same as the above goes for the drop-top version of the tiny city car.

Smart Forfour Electric Drive

The Smart Electric Drive range is completed with the eco-ification of its four-seater. It will cost slightly more than its smaller sibling.

Suzuki Swift

This small car will have evolutionary new styling with a ‘more mature’ look. The fourth-generation hatchback is due next May, and will be powered by a 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine. The car will be five-doors only and will be priced in the region of £9,500. A Swift Sport hot hatch will come up to a year after the standard car is launched.

Vauxhall Meriva

Small MPV gets SUV-influenced looks and probably a new name.

Volkswagen e-Golf

Our Verdict

BMW 5 Series

The BMW 5 Series offers a compelling blend of all-round abilities, but wants specifying carefully

Join the debate


27 November 2014

You forgot to mention the facelifted MG6, the new MG5 and the MG CS SUV, all for 2015/6, along with new engines and geaboxes for both MG6 and MG3

27 November 2014

The Honda Civic type R is the only affordable car that looks to excite in 2015.
Likely to keep my M135i for another year at least unless the R is really outstanding, the M135i package is so much better than all the 4 cylinder hot hatches out there (apart from the looks of course)


27 November 2014

With the new MX5 and CX3.

Both class leaders in the waiting.

30 November 2014

I thought their was speculation about the new BMW M2 coming in 2015/16. That is the only BMW I'm excited to see after looking at the pretty realistic AutoCar mock-up.

4 December 2014

You forgot the replacement for the Touran, due next year after 12 years of service and 2 major facelifts. It's already being driven around in camouflage.

1 January 2015

Err scrub that Spring 2015 launch...

1 January 2015

Looks like an amazing year ahead for new cars. Particularly looking forward to seeing the new Giulia, R8, Bristol, XF, XJ, Evoque, McLaren, Tesla and that hydrogen Toyota. Not to mention seeing more Mustangs on the road.

Also be interesting to see whether forced induction blunts the 458's appeal, which currently focuses around that screaming engine.

2 January 2015

I am very surprised that when many of us at at home and have time to read no one at autocar has bothered to post news of any kind.. sad. Oh well there are other sites I am glad to say

what's life without imagination

2 January 2015

I had a real shock today - snow melting slush and puddles and this is St Petersburg Russia which is on holiday officially for the next 9 days which includes xmas day on the 6th (My partners birthday on the 5th) and a LONG 2,500km round trip for 10 of us in two cars to Belarus. Anyway I was down town trying to avoid the soaking from kind drivers aiming for the biggest puddles - when whispering silence and I stopped to gawp and then another and another and the whole area stopped ... the car was new Tesla...absolutely gob smacked - it is really a handsome thing and all that smooth silence...beautiful - the way to go

what's life without imagination

2 January 2015

Beasty Boy - We have already got the first ones in St Petersburg :-))))
