What is your next car?
I was going to post a thread asking what everyone's current car is and what they would be buying next, but the latter is already a forum post, so that's kinda cut this one in half. :)
What car (or cars) are you currently giving the eye? What is the next car purchase on your list? Or are you just window shopping some nice motors? :)
I'm currently looking at two very sporty little numbers.
Kia Pro_Cee'd GT
A sports car from Kia? The end of the world is coming.
7.4s to 62mph, pushed along by a 4 cylinder 1.6L Turbocharged petrol unit - the same engine as in the Hyundai Veloster Turbo but fitted with a TwinScroll Turbo unit and tuned to churn out 201bhp and 265Nm of torque. I wont lie, I have a picture of this car printed off and pinned to my wardrobe door. Can you blame me? Its rather pretty. Plus it acts as an incentive to keep my savings account topped up.
Peugeot 208 GTi
A 1.6L Turbo, same size engine as the Kia, with almost identical power output at 197bhp. Since its an entire class size smaller (and therefore much lighter) it takes only 6.6s to reach 62mph. I am sorely tempted by this car. There is just something about the design that clicks with me in exactly the same way as the Kia. Though, this car is a "maybe" - the Kia is still the one I'm aiming for. Consider the Peugeot a backup if I don't like how the Kia drives when it comes to a test drive later this year. :)
