The sports utility vehicle may be the preferred choice of motorists today, but that doesn’t mean that the saloon has had its day. Indeed, going by the three compelling contenders here (two of which have won ST-Torque awards), saloons still have plenty to offer.
The first of our two award-winners is the Honda Civic, which is sure to draw the most interest from petrolheads. Because, apart from its potent drivetrain, the Civic’s futuristic design and athletic stance give it the most road presence in this company.
Keen to reassert its presence, too, is the Renault Megane Sedan, the second award-winner in this story. The Megane now has a more refined turbocharged petrol engine instead of a turbo-diesel unit, and promises a cool onboard experience with its attractive and high-tech cabin.
Looking to make a splash in this segment is the Skoda Octavia. The Volkswagen-owned Czech brand uses VW kit, but the Skoda models themselves have their own unique identity and are known for giving buyers a lot of bang for their buck.
