There are certain cars out there that everyone knows about. They’re the popular cars that always get bought. But, did you know there are some amazing cars out there that you may not know about? Here are three of the best ‘under the radar’ cars:
When people think about Ford cars, their mind wanders to the Fiesta and Focus. Sometimes, they might even think about the KA or one of Ford’s big MPV vehicles. Rarely will people think about a car that’s been around for quite a while; the Mondeo. It’s spacious, comfortable, and perfect for long journeys. There’s plenty of cool Ford tech inside and out too, like the adaptive LED lights. The Mondeo is a breeze to drive, and every journey feels effortless. Plus, the latest installment is one of the best-looking cars I’ve seen. I feel like it’s been living in the shadow of the popular Focus and Fiesta for a long time, people don’t realise how good this car is. In my opinion, there’s even a slight hint of Aston Martin about the way the latest Mondeo is designed. It’s got a very similar grill and face, I like it. A splendid vehicle that deserves more love and attention.
As the name suggests, this car is simply superb. However, it’s not on a lot of people’s radars because it isn’t made by one of the ‘big’ brands. Had this car been manufactured by Ford, BMW, or Mercedes, you can bet everyone would be paying attention to it. Instead, it’s made by Skoda, so not a lot of people notice it. For years, this brand was looked down upon, and people wouldn’t even consider buying a Skoda car. Now, it’s one of the best and most reliable car manufacturers out there. And, the Skoda Superb is a hot property amongst those that know about it. Think of it as a budget BMW 3 Series, it’s about the same size and shape as that. However, it represents great value for money and has an excellent safety rating. If you’re in the market for a family car, this could be the best option there is. A stunning vehicle that deserves a lot more credit than it gets.
Back in the day, the brand Jaguar was synonymous with class and quality. Everyone wanted to own one; it was seen as cool. If you saw a Jaguar on the road, you’d gaze with an open mouth and wide eyes. However, nowadays people are more focussed on the Audis, Mercedes, Porsche, etc. If you’re looking for a practical car that has a little extra under the bonnet, you turn to one of these makes. But, the Jaguar XJ is an outstanding player in the luxury sedan category. It’s way cheaper than all rivals and can boast impressive qualities. The engine roars like a, well, like a jaguar I guess. It sounds like a big jungle cat stalking its prey, I love it. There’s plenty of room inside the car too, and it looks amazing. I struggle to see why it’s not given as much love as its rivals because it really should.
Next time you’re looking for a new car, I suggest you consider one of these underrated beasts!
