There are some pretty cool cars heading on way in 2017 and here we showcase five that we predict will be the most popular.

Tesla Model 3 (£35,000)

Starting off with the most eagerly anticipated car on this list, the Tesla Model 3.

Tesla are like Apple were in 2006-2010 when they were easily the coolest brand in the World and everyone could not wait to see the next gadget released. Tesla are at that point right now. Just look at the video below to the audiences reaction to the Tesla Model 3 being revealed.

As of last August 2016, around 400,000 people had put down £1000 refundable deposits despite most not having seen the car in person! With a promised base price of £35,000 and an estimated range of 215 miles or more, the Model 3 long-range electric car looks set for huge popularity and we expect a large proportion of these to be company cars / fleet cars with the tax benefits that electric cars bring and of course no fuel costs!

Mazda CX-5 (£23,000)
The new Mazda CX-5 was revealed at Los Angeles Motor Show in November 2016 (see video below) and showed off a tweaked design, new tech and extra practicality making this popular family SUV even more desirable. 

Mini Countryman 2017 (£22,465)

Another car that was first revealed at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November 2016,  he new Mini Countryman SUV looks to take on the Audi Q2 and Nissan Qashqai. What we immediately liked was the whole interior has a much more grown-up feel to it – no longer have you got what looks like a huge silhouette of Mickey Mouse’s head but an infotainment touchscreen flanked by rectangular rather than round air vents – much cooler, literally.

Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster (£100,000)

Out of reach for most car budgets, but the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster is just stunning to look at and easily would find itself on most of our cool cars most wanted lists.

Land Rover Discovery 2017 (£43,495)

Finally last but certainly not least is the new Land Rover Discovery and another car shaping up to be one of 2017’s most anticipated cars. Land Rover has taken its rugged off-roader and pitched it a little further upmarket with a fluid new shape and luxurious cabin. Off-roaders shouldn’t worry as it’ll still be hugely capable off-road.

So there you have it, five cool cars that you can buy in 2017, some more expensive than others for sure. If you’re one of the 70%-80% people who plan to buy a car using credit, did you know the higher your credit score, the better the deal you’ll be offered on the interest repayments?

Tip – You can check your credit score for free at websites such as Clearscore and if you find you have a low score, there are many simple things you can do which will have a big impact on the APR you’re offered for car finance deals.
