When it comes to finding a new car, there is so much to take on board that it is almost impossible to consider everything at once. For 2017, it looks as though we are set for a whole range of exciting new vehicles, from many different badges. Among the usual suspects, there are also a lot of underground, little-known or underrated cars, and it’s these that we will be looking at today. If you are keen for a new drive which is likely to impress your friends, but without overspending, then take a look at the following. Here are some hot picks from early 2017.
When you go to a reynella Subaru dealership, you often know what you are likely to go for. But this year, this might well have changed, especially given the sheer range of some of the new vehicles out there in the world of Subaru. One particularly fascinating catch is the Subaru Impreza, a stylish and genuine all-rounder of a car which is unlikely to break the bank for most drivers. With a famous four-wheel drive performance and an easygoing ride on the roads, this is a vehicle which is a delight to drive. 2017’s edition brings in a new size to the Impreza range, namely a five-door hatchback, so it is ideal for even larger families now. However, you can still get hold of a saloon version if you don’t have need for all that extra space. You don’t get a choice with the engine, though – but as it’s a 1.6 four-cylinder beast, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
When it comes to the truly understated, the Volvo XC90 is almost the perfect example. Built beautifully, with a great sense of style in every corner, the XC90 is a car which is bound to delight motorheads everywhere. Something which really adds to its all round appeal is the way that Volvo has filled it to the brim with a huge range of clever technologies, something which is bound to make it popular in time. As for how it rides, it is enormously comfortable as both a driver or passenger, and it has that reliable badge that you know you can trust. All in all, this is a practical car which families in particular will find beneficial in a number of ways. However, if you want air suspension, you are likely going to have to pay through the nose for it, and you do only have the one kind of engine to choose from.
If you are a fan of an SUV, then the Skoda Kodiaq is probably going to prove to be a rare find of that caliber. With plenty of space for just about any family on earth and a polished and classy interior with all the works, this vehicle is one sexy and smooth ride, and it really stands out this year as an underrated immediate classic. Practical and full of space, the Kodiaq also benefits from a selection of strong and sturdy engines to choose from. Consider the Kodiaq if you’re looking for something a little special in 2017.
