9. Audi A1
There have been a lot of new entries lately in the premium hot hatch segment and therefore it is no surprise that Audi is set to take a plunge in the category as well. Audi A1 is set to appear at the Paris Motor Show in the latter part of the year where we would be able to get a clearer picture of the hatch has in store for us. However several spy shots have come up in recent times and rumors suggest that the actual product is going to be pretty close the speculated model. Under the hood, Audi A1 is expected to hold a 2 litre 4 cylinder engine that would carve away 225PS power with the engine being mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission system.
8. Volkswagen Passat
Another big name on the list is that of Volkswagen Passat. The luxury sedan is one of the most elegant vehicles in its segment and is a popular car globally but in the Indian market, Volkswagen Passat faced some tough competitors. The sedan scores high as far as appearance is concerned, with an aggressive front fascia. With its MQB platform, Volkswagen has been able to reduce the overall weight of Passat by 85kgs. Under the hood, the sedan carries a 2.0L TDI engine that generates 187bhp power and will be mated to a DSG dual-clutch gearbox. There is another engine variant with the twin turbo diesel motor that can carve away 237bhp power.
7. Ford Mustang
Ford Mustang is by far one of the most celebrated cars in the world since decades. The iconic image that this performance car holds in the pop culture is enough to symbolize what it represents for the car enthusiasts around the world. With its signature bold styling, Ford Mustang comes with deck spoiler; stainless steel twin exhaust rolled tips and tinted window glass that adds value to its already beautiful exterior. On the engine front Volkswagen Passat comes with a 3.7 litre Ti-VCT V6 motor that has a displacement of 3720cc generating 305bhp power at 6500rpm and a maximum torque of 380Nm at 4250rpm. There would be two options as far as the transmission system is concerned including a 6-speed manual gearbox and 6-speed automatic.
These were some of the best cars that car enthusiasts would be looking forward to this season and most of them would be looking to get their hands on the same. However those who cannot afford such luxurious brands can look out the second hand market of cars to get their pre-owned Audi cars or used Jaguar cars.
