The Sunday Times Top 100 Cars of 2016

 

Forget the Oscars! We’ve been waiting for The Sunday Times to announce their top 100 cars of 2016 and we weren’t disappointed!

So how did they decide on the winner? The Sunday Times stated: “We obviously gave it a lot of thought and sifted carefully through the 100 vehicles that made the shortlist. They are all excellent, and if you treat yourself to any one of them you’ll have a car that offers great value.”

If you are looking for a new car in 2016 then the shortlisted 100 vehicles list is a great place to start in your research. We’ve listed them below, and if you are thinking about leasing with LeaseYourNextCar.com we’ve even added links to our best deals on each car.
