As the year 2015 ends, what better time than to do a recap of some of the best cars that have graced us this year. If asked, which will you choose as the best car of the year? Well, come along with us as we give you a list of some of the cars that we picked based on some key features, but you can drop your views in the comments area if you think we missed some things.
- Alfa Romeo Giulia
Although it can’t be pointed as the best in all areas, this car has done enough to grace the 6th position on our list. The 22,000-priced car started selling late 2015 and in a short time after it entered the market, Alfa Romeo sold over 5,523 units in the UK only. The car sports some nice features and it has some safety amenities put in place.
- Lagonda Taraf
Although the sales of Aston’s cars in UK suffered a slight dip in 2014, the company decided to bank on the lucrative Middle East market. This car was designed to be the world’s most luxurious salon car as it comes with 6.0-litre V12 engines that were hand-built in Gaydon.
- Audi R8
Even Audi never thought that the 2007 model of the R8 could enjoy such success, and in 2015 it gave in to pressure to get some things right and improve so many things on this 2015 edition of the car. This car is lighter than the V8 and V10 models, it’s stiffer and it’s even sharper than ever.
- BMW M2
Since 2014 after BMW launched the BMW Series Coupe, the company has had the M2 model of the car on its card. This car has proved to be the true successor to the BMW 2 Series Coupe which got released in 2014. Rather than having huge, straight-line power, this car was made with focus on dynamic involvement.
- Ferrari 488 GTB
It will be tough to copy the wonders done on the Ferrari 458 Italia, but Ferrari managed to bring an even better 488 GTB. The number 488 refers to the capacity of the car, and the GTB is an improvement to the 308 GTB. In order to simultaneously boost the power of the car and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions, Ferrari had to start using the turbo-charge feature on its cars. The car sports a 3.9 liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 661bhp and 760Nm torque and this is able to move the car from 0-62mph in just three seconds. The car also comes with split vents in front of the rear wheels, helping to channel the airflow to the front of the engine.
- Ford S-Max
One of the most significant cars of the Paris Motor Show in October is the Ford S-Max. The car comes with an improved design and it comes with a seven-seat configuration that is built on the success of the older version of the car. Although it comes in the same size as the older version, it has some practical features that make it marketable. It comes with power-folding second and third row seats; it has a hands-free tailgate and the new self-parking feature that makes it easy to reverse into perpendicular two-storey bays.
