Audi RS6 Avant review

Audi RS7

Range-topping grand tourer features coupé styling and shares the same 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 as the RS6. The second-generation RS7 Sportback from the Audi Sport division has a series of upgrades intended to make it a true GT. The only remaining body panels from the old A7 are the bonnet, front doors and tailgate, and it’s 40mm wider.

Audi A1 Citycarver

Off-road-inspired supermini doesn’t just look rugged; it also rides higher and has upgraded suspension. The Ford Fiesta Active rival, priced from £22,040, receives roughly two inches of additional ground clearance, plus larger wheels and a tweaked suspension setup, over the standard A1. However, it’s positioned as a more city-focused ‘urban crossover’ than Audi’s fully fledged, four-wheel-drive Allroad models.

Bentley Flying Spur 

The newest version of Bentley’s luxury saloon retains a twin-turbo W12, tuned for 626bhp, and has a 207mph top speed. Our first taste came late last year, when Steve Cropley reported that it “can accelerate like a McLaren and ride like a Rolls”. An entry-level V8 variant will follow, plus a V6 petrol plug-in hybrid.

BMW X1 plug-in hybrid

The plug-in hybrid version of BMW’s compact SUV promises 35 miles of electric-only range, and uses the same petrol-electric powertrain as the 225xe Active Tourer, delivering a combined output of 217bhp and 284lb ft. It is the first time the five-seat SUV has been offered with a PHEV in Europe.

Ferrari F8 Tributo

In effect a heavy reworking of the 488 GTB, this could be the brand’s last non-hybrid V8 car. It is the most powerful mid-engined V8 Ferrari series production supercar yet produced, using a new 710bhp version of Ferrari’s 3.9-litre V8 engine – a 49bhp upgrade on the 488 GTB, and the same output as the car’s biggest rival, the McLaren 720S.

Ford Puma

The small coupé returns. Wait – no – the Puma is now a Nissan Juke-rivalling compact crossover. It’ll be hugely important to Ford’s comeback in Europe, too, especially considering Ford has often missed the mark with previous SUVs. Starting from £20,845 for a well-specified Titanium model, the Puma uses the same B global small car architecture as the Fiesta and sits 30mm higher than the popular supermini, as well as being longer and wider.

Hyundai i10

The next-generation i10 gets a youth-oriented design overhaul and better packaging for more passenger space. Hyundai claims it’s better to drive than the old car, too, and the roster of tech has been upgraded to the point where it’s barely less well equipped than bigger Hyundais. Three and four-cylinder engines will return, but a new turbocharged three-pot in the N Line model takes the i10 into new territory as a warm hatch.

Mercedes-Benz GLB

Mercedes’ latest SUV mixes rugged styling with seven-seat practicality in a relatively compact package, with AMG versions set to follow. Starting from £34,200, it is the eighth in Mercedes’ compact range and differs from its direct class rivals in offering both five and seven-seat layouts. Mercedes says it has been designed to offer class-leading versatility to appeal more to family car buyers than the smaller GLA.
