Spacious and safe, the new Hyundai ix20 has changed in all the right places, making it a leader in its class. This re-styled model debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier on this year and was warmly received for its eco-friendly, souped-up engine and new look exterior, conceived of as part of a complete conceptual overhaul by Audi TT designer Peter Schreyer.
The Optima has been a leading light of the mid-size sedan market since it was first unveiled in 2011 by South Korean manufacturer Kia. Now re-styled for 2015, it’s a premium saloon in the mould of a Ford Mondeo, Skoda Superb or Hyundai i40 (the Kia’s sister car), but with quality and features that cannot be surpassed within its price range.
Renault are known for their innovation, but they’ve admittedly been somewhat slow to exploit the SUV market, letting the Nissan Qashqai enjoy the spotlight. Hitting showrooms in September 2015 is the Kadjar SUV crossover, Renault’s answer to the Qashqai, and it’s every bit as good (dare we say, even slightly better) than its rival.
