With September 1st heralding the arrival of the 66 reg plate, the car industry is entering one of its busiest times of the year with some great new cars.
If you’re in the market for a new set of wheels, new and used car dealership Motorparks has taken a look at a trio of vehicles that will be vying for your attention in the weeks to come:
Alfa Romeo Giulia
Perfect for: Those after a new company car.
Reasons why: Well-known Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo is making a return to the executive saloon sector with the release of the Giulia.
The spiritual successor of the Alfa Romeo 159, the car is sure to capture plenty of attention with its luxurious design and its raft of handy equipment and tech.
Drivers looking to keep their motoring costs down will also be pleased to hear that the Alfa Romeo Giulia’s 2.2-litre diesel engine is able to limit CO2 emissions to under 100g/km. This means tax-free motoring.
With an attractive price — keep an eye on Motorparks’ new Alfa Romeo range for some great deals — the Giulia is sure to prove a worthy rival to popular executive saloons such as the Audi A4, Mercedes C-Class, Jaguar XE and the BMW 3 Series.
Expected release: November 2016.
Perfect for: Those after a new family car.
Reasons why: Available as either a hatchback or an estate, the Fiat Tipo is great if you often head out on journeys with the family.
This is because all variants of this vehicle come complete with five doors for easy access and five seats, offering plenty of space even for a group of adults. You won’t need to worry about storing luggage either — there are 420 and 520 litres of boot space available inside the hatchback and estate models respectively.
Driving from A to B inside the Tipo is sure to be a lot of fun too. The car is built with Fiat’s hi-tech Uconnect infotainment system — complete with a stylish five-inch touchscreen — and an efficient air-conditioning system.
With the Tipo’s 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel engine claiming to deliver more than 70mpg, you won’t even need to stress about fuel costs.
Expected release: September 2016.
Perfect for: Those after a car perfect for the city.
Reasons why: The third-generation of the Ford Ka is here, with the Ka+ standing out from its predecessors mainly for the fact that the new model comes complete with five doors as opposed to the usual three-door setup.
As a result, the Ka+ will be closer to the size of a new Ford Fiesta. However, the car remains compact enough to handle even the busiest of city centre streets with ease.
We can’t forget to mention that each model of the Ford Ka+ packs in standard features such as a comprehensive air conditioning system, electric rear windows and specifying alloy wheels.
The Ka+ is set to launch at prices starting at £8,995, though be sure to check out the new Ford range at Motorparks for some outstanding offers as the release date edges closer.
Expected release: October 2016.
