These automotive marvels come in various shapes and sizes
Motoring.co.uk's new car database is the best place to find the UK's top three stylish cars for under £25,000. These automotive marvels come in various shapes and sizes and earned the 'stylish' accolade because of their sky-high image, visual appeal, and commendable distinctiveness. So, let's get the countdown started.In at position three is the perfectly proportioned Fiat 500. Listed in Motoring.co.uk's new car database from £8,700, this retro styled city car proves that bargain hunters can have a fashionable run-around for very little money. The model most likely to make your hair stand on end is the 1.4-litre 135bhp Abarth. This roars to 62mph in 7.9 seconds and accelerates to an impressive 127mph. This performance complements the fun focused handling that allows this pocket rocket to be confidently thrown into corners. The next contender under the spotlight, and runner up in position two, is the beautifully crafted Volvo C30. This four-seater coupé is stunningly attractive, robustly constructed, surprisingly comfortable, and listed in the database from £15,995. The most powerful engine is the 2.5-litre 226bhp turbocharged petrol unit, but cost conscious buyers may prefer the 2.0-litre 140bhp diesel. This returns a highly respectable combined average of 49mpg, and reaches 60mph in 9.4 seconds. Whereas that is by no means fast, this 2.0-litre engine suits the C30's sporty chassis and is more than adequate for most drivers. Claiming top prize in the most stylish cars for under £25,000 countdown is the Audi A5 Coupe. This is one of the best looking vehicles on the market, and is listed from £24,020 in Motoring.co.uk's database. This metallic super-model is available with a 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 170bhp and propels the A5 to 62mph in 8.7 seconds. Combined fuel consumption is 54.3mpg, so the A5 is frugal as well as stylish. Handling wise this Germanic coupé is best perceived as a grand tourer, rather than a nimble sports car. It effortlessly gobbles up the miles serenely wafting from corner to corner, and its sumptuous interior is more comfortable than the Ritz Hotel. There is also plenty of traction should the going get tough, particularly if you choose a model with four-wheel-drive. So, there we go. Three stylish cars for under £25,000. All potential owners have to do now is pick a favourite. Choices, choices!
