2016/2017: 12 months in cars

Over the last 12 months we’ve seen manufacturers responding to the challenges of air pollution with advanced new electric and hybrid powertrains as well as through more efficient petrol and diesel engines. The rise of the SUV has continued with more manufacturers entering the growing markets for everything from compact crossovers and to luxury 4x4s. 

Autonomous driving tech has continued to creep into our vehicles with more advanced driver aids to boost comfort and safety. But the essential thrill of driving hasn’t been forgotten. We’ve been treated to an incredible collection of cars designed expressly to capture hearts with their design, performance and handling. Power figures and speeds have climbed as sprint benchmarks and lap times have tumbled. In short, it’s a great time to be a car buyer and car fan.
