An­other year, an­other bliz­zard of new cars. We not only list the lot, we pick the best for all bud­gets and tastes

BMW3 Se­ries

Every­thing in the pres­tige world spins around the 3 Se­ries, even if Benz is do­ing bet­ter with its C-class. The all-new 3 de­liv­ers more lux­ury and re­fine­ment, with a re­turn to fa­mil­iar styling, plus a smarter pric­ing pol­icy, from $60,900 for a 320d. The en­try turbo petrol 320i ar­rives mid-year.

Ford Fal­con four

Ford has to per­suade heart­land buy­ers that an Eco­boost Fal­con can re­ally work for them in a class where big sixes have done best. It’s the most im­por­tant car of 2012 — one way or the other.

Hyundai Veloster

Korean cars now come with class, so the ques­tion is: how does Hyundai do a 21stcen­tury sports car? The Veloster has a quirky three-door body and the prom­ise of driv­ing en­joy­ment. Pity it won’t be tweaked into a Kia for Aus­tralia.
