Ed­i­tor Juliet McGuire looks at the most ex­cit­ing cars of 2017

WOW (Women on Wheels) - - CONTENTS -

Porsche Panam­era

With a brand-new plat­form, new engines and strik­ing good looks, this four-door Porsche makes quite an im­pres­sion. For those par­ents who need to do a re­ally fast school run, pop over to your lo­cal Porsche dealer, as it’s re­cently gone on sale.

Kia Pi­canto

The cur­rent ver­sion of this hot lit­tle A-seg­ment bud­get buy hit South Africa’s shores back in 2011 and has won many awards. This all-new Pi­canto, now in its third gen­er­a­tion, will see a new 1,0-litre T-GDI en­gine added to the range.

Kia Rio

This has al­ways been a firm favourite of the WOW team, and the world: the Volk­swa­gen Polo-ri­valling Rio is the best­selling Kia model glob­ally. This new gen­er­a­tion has a lot to live up to, but we have no doubt it is just as im­pres­sive.

Volvo XC60

If you love the large XC90, you will prob­a­bly be very happy to see this SUV ar­rive. It will in essence be a smaller ver­sion of the pop­u­lar XC90. Af­ter be­ing im­pressed with the gor­geous S90, which ar­rived ear­lier this year, we can only be ex­cited about this guy.

Audi TT RS

This is the RS ver­sion of Audi’s pop­u­lar TT two-door and, with a 2,5-litre, five-cylin­der turbo en­gine, we’re hot un­der the col­lar in anticipation for it to ar­rive. It may even have landed in SA at the time of go­ing to print … here’s hop­ing!

MercedesBenz X-Class

The big Benz bakkie will ar­rive early in 2018, and we can’t wait to drive it. Based on the Nis­san Navara, the X-Class will bring new lev­els of lux­ury and cus­tomi­sa­tion to a fiercely com­pet­i­tive seg­ment.
