The 2021 best releases in the automotive world

If you want to buy a new car in 2021, be prepared to consider a variety of options.

The transition to zero-emission vehicles, as well as the intention of the UK government to introduce a ban on the sale of diesel and petrol cars, led to the fact that many car releases of this year have got hybrid or electric motors.

Best cars of 2021

We have selected 16 hot offers for you. Here, everyone will find something to their liking.

No matter what your initial budget is, be sure to compare insurance quotes and pay attention to the car insurance group, as this can significantly reduce the cost of coverage for many years.

Choosing the right insurance

Each car is assigned an insurance group number from 1 to 50 — the lower the group number, the cheaper the insurance is (other factors, such as driving history, also matter).

It is expected that the car will receive the insurance group 19.
