We've reached the halfway point of a year which has already seen an interesting selection of new releases. What else is on the new car calendar for 2015?

Alfa Romeo Giulia

Alfa Romeo's much anticipated Giulia should be here by the end of the year, gunning for the BMW 3 Series and introducing a new direction for the Italian firm.


The second generation of Audi's Q7 large SUV is due in August and is expected to be lighter, more technologically advanced and more efficient than its predecessor. A hybrid version will be available.

A revamped A4 is due a little later in the year in saloon and Avant formats. Like the Q7, weight loss and fuel economy has been a priority in its development and it will also be rammed with advanced technologies, to help it take on the mighty BMW 3 Series.


The second generation of the X1 compact SUV will go from rear to front wheel drive when it arrives this autumn, to be shortly followed by an updated 7 Series, featuring an innovative new engine range and an opulent, technology enriched cabin.

The M2 should also be making its debut before the end of the year, with prices starting from about £45,000.

Fiat 500

This week, Fiat has been showing off the styling and specification of its updated 500, due in September.


For the first time ever, Ford's iconic Mustang muscle car is to be sold in right hand drive format for the UK market. The newest version has also apparently been designed with a more European sensibility in mind.

The Ford Ka is also due for a revamp to bring it in line with Ford's One Ford global marketing strategy and consolidate its budget city car appeal, while the Edge SUV will also arrive on the UK market.

Honda NSX

Expect 550bhp and a hybrid powertrain, as Honda makes a welcome return to sports car territory.


A facelifted ix20 is expected to make an appearance before the end of the year while the new Tucson, set to replace the ix35, will be introduced and the Santa Fe will receive some cosmetic updates.


By the end of the year, Lexus will have introduced a BMW 5 Series challenging new GS F, with a 5.0 litre V8 to its name, and the RX SUV fourth generation, with a smart new look and updated engine range.


The GLE will take over what used to be the M-Class's space next to the Range Rover and Porsche Cayenne, while the GLK becomes the new GLC.
