We’re halfway through 2015, and we thought it was time to share some of our favourite cars of 2015 in Australia.
In this list, we won’t be including any models that aren’t road legal here in the land of Oz. You’ll only see cars that are, or will be, road legal and have been announced, or already available in dealerships.
Alfa Romeo Giulia
It’s reaches 100km/h in less than four seconds, it’s Italian, has loads of carbon fibre and also has four doors. What’s not to love about the Alfa Romeo Giulia? The most exciting thing is that we will be seeing it in Australian showrooms!
The evolution of the TT design, and the total technology take over in the cabin makes this one of the most exciting entrants to this list. The Audi Virtual Cockpit is a 12.1inch digital display that shows anything from vehicle information, maps, and media information in a dash. Almost cooler than what any fighter jet would have…almost.
We’re finally getting a mass-produced, right-hand-drive version of the Ford Mustang. It looks fantastic, and has been priced a lot lower than anybody was expecting – with the EcoBoost model priced from $44,900. Whether you choose the EcoBoost 4cylinder or V8, you’ll be guaranteeing a lot of fun.
Alfa Romeo 4C
It took way too long for the 4C to arrive on our shores, however when it finally did – it delivered on the promise of supercar styling and materials for the price of a sports coupe. Sure, some modifications had to be made to the chassis to meet ADR requirements, but it just looks so good!
There was a lot of hype around the reveal of the Mazda MX-5, and early reports say that the new generation MX-5 will deliver on everything that made the previous models just so good. Plus, it’s priced from just $31,990 – not a lot for convertible, rear-wheel-drive driving.
Ford Focus ST
Ok, we wanted to include the Focus RS, but we know that the Focus ST hits the sweet spot between looks, performance and price. The RS will undoubtedly be more exciting, but the ST is the car you can enjoy more often.
Mercedes-AMG C63 S
American muscle feel, meets German engineering sophistication. That’s what the C63 S is all about, brute force power surrounded by one of the best interiors on the market.
Ferrari 488 GTB
Take the very best of the Ferrari 458, add in some new technology, updated styling and some turbo power and what you get is the Ferrari 488 GTB. It’s the beginning of a forced induction only future at Ferrari, and if they can continue with the fantastic thing that the 488 GTB is – that future is going to be much brighter than we originally thought.
What did we miss?
