A little earlier in the day I promised to remind you of the new cars launched in 2018.
Here it is. Just take a look at this list, why don’t you. I have undoubtedly forgotten something.
Audi A1 (it’s the main image and is surpisingly mediocre.)
BMW 3-series (the one with the very busy front end. Red or blue?)
Audi A6 (hard to believe this has crept onto the scene. It is a bit of a non-event. I saw one on the 22nd of December. It’s busy and decorated.)
BMW X7 (no idea)
Hyundai Kona-E (one is parkd on my street, draped with rityz green-blue metallic paint).
Ford Focus (I remembered this and am prepared to change my mind about it on the basis of the Fiesta’s exemplary surface treatment but have not seen on in real life yet.)
Suzuki Swift Sport (very pleasing in the metal – I got this one wrong.)
Kia Ceed: disapppointing. (The DLO and C-pillar are not friends.)
Seat Tarraco (haven’t seen one.)
DS 3 Crossback (yet again, what a dumb naming system. I thought the cars were called DS(insert number) but apparently it is (insert number) and (add suffix. But … what about Mazda’s single number model names?)
Peugeot 508 (still haven’t seen one)
VW Touareg (haven’t seen one)
Hyundai Santa Fé (unseen)
Jaguar I-Pace (seen on Dec 16th 2018. Lovely, lovely, lovely.)
Honda CR-V (unseen around here)
Mazda 3 – in over the transom, shown in November. Impressive surfacing.
Volvo V60 (haven’t seen this either but is promising)
Toyota Auris (E210 is the production code. Learn it!)
Toyota Camry (as a hybrid, for Europe. Looks wierd but it’s nice to see Toyota back in this sector. The interior could be nice if they sell it with the wood trim.)
