Upcoming cars in UK: 2013

Which are the biggest names making rounds in the UK Auto Industry right now? The following are some of them, which we will be able to see (in 2013) for the first time on UK roads:

Audi A2 concept

Audi A2 Concept

It is a fully electric, lightweight hatchback, which has a similar silhouette to the original Audi A2, with a taller body and shorter overhangs. It is set to take on the likes of Honda Jazz and BMW i3. This concept car will offer a Li-ion battery-powered electric motor, which would deliver a Power of 116bhp and 270Nm, which will make it reach the top speed at 93mph.

Fiat Panda 4X4

So, what’s new with this Panda? Suspension changes have been made to improve the ride on glossy surfaces, and also to reduce weight to improve emissions and off-road ability. Two different types of engines will be available: One, an 84bhp turbocharged 875cc TwinAir petrol, and the other, a 74bhp 1.3L MultiJet diesel. The starting rpice should be around £10,000.

2013 Ford Mondeo

Although very much like the traditional Mondeo, but the 2013 version looks to be a tad sharper and bigger.

2013 Kia Pro_cee’d

This one looks sleeker and sportier than its predecessor and features many of the same improvements Kia has given the five-door Cee’d and estate Cee’d SW. The 89bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine produces 139g/km CO2 emissions, while the more powerful 123phb 1.6 petrol produces 158g/km.

Mazda 6-6 Estate

This will be a rival for the 2013 Ford Mondeo. The all-new Mazda 6 is notably more spacious, thanks to extra width and a wheelbase that’s 105mm longer than the previous model, freeing up more front and rear space. The all-new Mazda 6 becomes the second Mazda to get SkyActiv engines. The UK launch date for the all new 2013 Mazda 6 is set as January 2013.

Nissan Invitation concept

The Invitation is a compact SUV in its truest essence – supermini design and driving agility combined with generous cabin space. The engine will be an adaptation of the existing 1.0-litre supercharged engine already being used in the current Micra. The base price will be around £11,000.

The new Clio will be sold in five-door form only, with no three-door version on offer. Renault’s R-Link becomes available on the Clio for the first time. It’s an integrated, internet-connected touchscreen tablet with a seven-inch screen, voice commands, sat nav and eco-driving advice.

Seat Leon

2013 Seat LEON

The Leon aims to lure younger, sportier drivers. Its more angular, aggressive design is in line with Seat’s latest styling ethos. Up front there’s a deep bumper with optional full LED headlights.

Seat Toledo

The Toledo should offer a lot of standard equipment for the money. Base price will be around £15,000.

Skoda Rapid

Already launched in India, the Skoda Rapid is medium-sized car, somewhere between the Fabia and the Octavia. But, it will, undoubtedly, be bigger than the upcoming Volkswagen Golf.

Toyota Auris

2013 Toyota Auris

The new Auris is lower (by 6cm), longer (by 3cm) and lighter (by 40kg) than the current model.

Vauxhall Adam

Remarkably, the Adam is the first-ever car that Vauxhall has designed itself to compete in the city car class. The Adam is a three-door, four-seater that will take on the Ford Ka and Fiat 500.

Volkswagen Golf GTI

A new 2.0 turbo petrol engine will power the 2013 Golf GTI, with two different power outputs available. The standard model will have 217bhp, and a more potent version will be upped to 227bhp.
