Our favourite cars of 2015

New Vauxhall Astra
It was an exciting year for the motor industry, with a fleet of stylish new cars pulling into showrooms across the UK. It was a year where competition between the big brands over key car styles such as saloons and SUVs really went up a gear. With the likes of Vauxhall, Honda and Hyundai pulling out all the stops, it was us, the consumer who benefited. There were a lot of great releases and here is a handy run-down of our top picks.

Kia Picanto

South Korea’s second biggest car manufacturer goes from strength to strength with a solid entry into the small hatchback market with a competitive price tag. It may be small, but like all Kia’s cars, the Picanto has a huge 7 year warranty, which is a big pull for many car owners. For its size, storage space is also on the large size, with all models of the car coming with 200-litre boot space. Light controls along with two engine options that are well suited to city driving, make it one of our favourites for 2015.

Prices from: £6,345

Vauxhall Astra

If you read our review of the Vauxhall Astra last month (https://www.wewantanycar.com/news/new-vauxhall-astra-review/) it’ll come as no surprise that it is in our top list for 2015. We were really impressed by the New Astra’s sharper, more elegant look, but it is much more than a flashy exterior. Vauxhall have expertly managed to make the exterior of their newest Astra smaller, whilst increasing interior space. It’s also dropped in weight by a significant 130kg, meaning better handling and absorption of bumps on the road. Its 1.6-litre ‘Whisper’ engine is also as smooth and quiet as its name implies.

Prices start from: £15,295

Honda Jazz

Significant updates to Honda’s Jazz have made it a small but mighty force to be reckoned with in the city car market. For one it has been completely reworked with a new chassis courtesy of Honda’s Global Compact Platform. The previous Jazz had its handling issues, but new front suspension has all but eliminated these ensuring a smoother ride. The manual version of its 1.3 iVTEC engine has a nice 6-speed gearbox with a sturdy lever. The interior was a sleek looking finish, with plenty of glossy black surfaces. Along with a healthy helping of boot space and legroom the Honda Jazz is undoubtedly one of our top picks for 2015.

Prices from: £10,895

Skoda Superb

Skoda’s improved brand image as a serious quality car manufacturer has gone from strength to strength in recent years and this year’s Superb is a showcase of this. For a start the 80mm extended wheelbase over the previous version means there is more room. We really enjoyed some of the features of the SE version of the car including 17in alloys, dual zone climate, adaptive cruise and a ‘virtual pedal’, which lets you open the boot by waving your foot under the bumper. Matched with a modest 1.6 litre turbo diesel 118bhp engine and comfortable handling the car is a superb entry into our favourites list for 2015.

Prices from: £22,790

Hyundai Tucson

Style, great performance and bags of character. There were a lot of positives when we reviewed the Hyundai Tucson earlier this year and that is why it makes our top list for 2015. The Tucson is big and bold with its familiar hexagonal grill at the forefront of a stylish SUV exterior. The interior is noticeably aimed at comfort with luxurious seats that can be heated or ventilated. A plethora of engine choices ranging between 116 and 185bhp also means there is a power option for all tastes.

Prices from: £18,495
