Looking to lease a new vehicle in 2016? 

Then you've come to the right place. Listed below are our top five cars to keep an eye out for 2016. Whether you need a new family car or some stylish company cars, these luxurious vehicles will not disappoint. 

1 - Ford Focus RS Although the Ford Focus RS is not due for commercial release until Spring 2016, 1,500 UK buyers have already submitted their orders for this hot hatchback. One of the main reasons for this advanced interest in the Ford Focus RS is the wide range of customisation choice on offer. As matters stand, Ford has equipped the Ford Focus RS with a diverse array of optional upgrades including 19 inch black forged alloy wheels, Recaro shell front seats, an electric tilt/side sunroof, an 8 inch colour touch screen that hosts Ford's patented SYNC2 navigation and sound system, keyless entry, folding door mirrors, rear parking sensors, cruise control and privacy glass amongst other luxurious additions; the choice is yours.

2 - BMW M2 Fans of the 2010 BMW 1 Series M Coupe will be happy to hear that its indirect successor, the BMW M2, will be unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2016. Due for commercial release in late 2016, the BMW M2 will be available with either a standard six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic gearbox. With estimated acceleration figures of 0 to 62mph in 4.5 seconds for the standard manual gearbox and 4.3 seconds for the seven-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic gearbox, the BMW M2 is expected to become an extremely popular lease vehicle in 2016. 

3 - Ford EcoSport Titanium S If you will be looking for a formidable yet fun family car in 2016 then the new Ford EcoSport Titanium S model will not disappoint. If you opt for the powerful 138bhp turbocharged petrol engine addition then you will benefit from a top speed of 117mph, 0 to 62mph in 11.8 seconds and a respectable fuel economy of 50.4 mpg combined. TheFord EcoSport Titanium Swill come equipped with the latest in-car technological features including an upgraded Sony stereo with DAB and Bluetooth capabilities, a reversing camera, front and rear reclining seats as well as Ford's Sync navigation and sound system with innovative Voice Control and Applink capabilities; making the Ford EcoSport Titanium S the ideal compact SUV for both daily commutes and family road trips! 

4 - 2016 Renault Megane Due for commercial release in Spring 2016, the new and improved Renault Megane hatchback is expected to be one of the most popular family cars of the New Year. Upon launch, the 2016 Renault Megane will be available with a choice of three diesel and three petrol engines. Given that 110bhp diesel engine edition is expected to emit merely 86kg/km of CO2 emissions, the 2016 Renault Megane looks set to be an eminently affordable vehicle which will thrive as both a family vehicle and a company car. 

5 - Jaguar XF Although Jaguar has yet to release the full specification details for the highly anticipated new Jaguar XF model, motorists can expect to benefit from formidable acceleration capabilities from this midsize sedan's rear wheel drive models; with its supercharged V6 engines estimated to produce 0 to 60mph in 5 seconds. All-wheel drive models of the Jaguar XFwill also be available with Jaguar's Intelligent Driveline Dynamics system to facilitate superb traction control. Throw in some state of the art surround-view cameras, a laser-projected head-up display, blind-spot monitors, parking assist, an autonomous braking system, in-car wireless Internet and an innovative In Control Touch smart phone-connectivity interface, and it will be well worth keeping an eye out for the Jaguar XF in 2016.
