Volkswagen Golf GTI
THE latest Golf GTI is a sporty car with much of the charisma of the earliest versions. Powered by a 200bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre FSI engine, the GTI is offered in three-door and five-door variants and is far more fun to drive than third and fourth-generation predecessors. Expect strong residuals from this petrol model.
FEBRUARY heralds the launch of an all-new Mercedes-Benz A-class which has been developed jointly with the smart forfour and Mitsubishi Colt. More dynamic styling – and a three-door version for the first time – as well as new engines should make it a more desirable prospect.
