The best new cars coming in 2016

Abarth 500X

Price £22,000 (est), On sale Winter 2016
Fiat’s cheeky ad saw a 500 grow into a crossover after ‘swallowing’ a little blue pill. Well, now tuning arm Abarth is set to pump the 500X up further, creating a 200bhp rival to the Nissan Juke Nismo RS and MINI Countryman JCW, and our exclusive image shows how it could look.
Yet the Abarth 500X would get far more than just a flash bodykit, as it’s likely to use the Alfa Romeo 4C’s 1.75-litre turbo. That would mean 0-62mph in less than seven seconds with an extremely fruity soundtrack to match.

Alfa Romeo Giulia

Price £24,000 (est), On sale September 2016
Alfa Romeo has been absent from the compact executive market for the past four years, and it’s been a less glamorous place as a result. While the brand’s last attempt at a BMW 3 Series beater was the sharp-suited 159, the new Giulia revives a classic Alfa name and uses sensuous looks in a bid to win sales.
Unusually, bosses revealed the hottest model first – the wraps came off the BMW M3-rivalling 4WD QV, with its 503bhp 3.0-litre V6 turbo, this year – but the range will include smaller-engined versions and numerous trim levels to battle the likes of the Mercedes C-ClassAudi’s new A4 and the Jaguar XE.
There’ll be a range of efficient diesels and turbo petrols to appeal to company buyers, and most Giulias will be rear-wheel drive to compete with rivals for thrills. The platform will also underpin Alfa’s new SUV.

Aston Martin DB11

Price £170,000 (est), On sale Late 2016
