Christmas round up time – the 5 coolest cars from 2012

We help dealers understand their effectiveness in automotive customer service. We help potential car buyers find the right dealer by providing valuable feedback. However, we love cars…and here are our top 5 favourite cars of 2012:

1. BMW 3 Series 320d
Why is the 3 Series cool? Not just because Top Gear says it is. Although this always holds weight! If the last 3 Series was a smooth drive, then this one has wheels made of velvet and simultaneously achieves a combined fuel consumption of 68.9mpg. Breath-taking.


2. Volkswagen Take up!
Why is the Up cool? VW have provided a cute compact car for under £8K list price with Blumotion technology available for a bit more. Yep, that covers it.

3. Lotus Evora

We had to have a sports car in our Christmas top 5. Lotus has ambitious plans going into 2013 which in the car trade always attracts plenty of cynicism. The Evora opens up to young families with a +2 seat option for a respectable £1500 – meaning that yummy mummies and daddy cools can have something a bit racier to drive about in.


4. Mercedes-Benz A-Class
Mercedes boldly move the A-Class from mini-MPV status to hot hatch. This is a huge improvement in car design terms.

5. Ford Fiesta Econetic
Economical cars are now cool – how things have changed in the car world. The top selling car model in the UK now has immense fuel economy with the Econetic achieving 85mpg…it’s expensive but the Ford Fiesta really is the best small car that has ever been on our roads.
