As the year tails off and all eyes focus on VW, there is yet some interesting new metal to come. The following models remain on the new cars 2015 roster for Autumn.

The best new cars 2015

There have been some fantastic new releases already this year, with a selection of all new models and updates of old favourites among the most interesting new car releases due before 2016 hits.

Honda HR-V

After a decade long hiatus, the HR-V is back to take on the Mazda CX-3 and Nissan Juke. Honda has brought its considerable experience in the crossover genre to bear here, resulting in a smart, spacious and generously equipped HR-V, which uses a smooth range of engines including the excellent 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel unit and a punchy 1.5 litre petrol. Available now, it's a sensible rather than an exciting purchase.

Honda Jazz

Also fresh on the market is a neatly updated Honda Jazz; slightly larger than its predecessor and even more practical. It retains the clever 'Magic' rear seating format and has been treated to a more refined and economical engine range, plus some interesting new technology.

Subaru Levorg

Subaru's replacement for the Legacy has just arrived, in the futuristic and industrial looking form of the Levorg. It's a sporty estate with lots of comfort and convenience features but its distinctive looks are unlikely to meet with universal approval, and it's a thirsty beast in a market vying for ever better fuel economy. Nonetheless it's hard to knock Subaru engineering and the Levorg will no doubt find a distinct fan base.

Vauxhall Astra

Vauxhall has great hopes of the latest Astra, which is better looking than ever before and boasts a marked improvement in quality. A slightly shorter wheelbase has resulted in a larger boot, while a cut in weight means better fuel economy figures and sharper handling. The engine range includes both new and old models while standard kit generously includes cruise control, air con and alloy wheels.

Hyundai Tucson

Like Honda, Hyundai has chosen to bring back a familiar name for its replacement to the ix35 crossover. The smart new Tucson includes a five year warranty and a value for money range of equipment including DAB radio, a touchscreen infotainment system and lane keeping assistance. Options include one petrol and two diesel engines with two or four wheel drive and manual or automatic transmission.

Skoda Superb Estate

Skoda has certainly understood the idea that if you call a car the Superb, that's what it has to be. This is the Czech brand's most sophisticated car yet - and it's absolutely huge. A more efficient and refined engine range accompanies a premium quality interior and plenty of modern technology. This is a significant step forward for Skoda and promises great things in the future.


Set to be released on 24 October, this is a larger but lighter X1, which shares a platform with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and the Mini. There's more room inside for both passengers and cargo, plus a cleaner and more economical choice of 2.0 litre petrol and diesel engines than before, and a three cylinder unit has been promised. It's another venture into front wheel drive territory for BMW but is also available in four wheel drive.

Audi A4

Next month sees the release of a revised A4, which hasn't changed dramatically on the outside but is almost all new underneath. It's larger but sleeker and lighter than before and built to the same high quality you expect from an Audi. It's facing serious competition in the form of the Jaguar XE and the BMW 3 Series but looks more than up to the job.
