Whether it’s style, substance or speed that you’re after, we’ve put together five of the most fun summer cars for 2022 driving.
Fun cars for your summer drives in 2022
Alfa Romeo Giulia
Say hello to a Ferrari-based twin-turbo engine, as well as agile handling, rear-wheel drive, and a smooth automatic gearbox. The car also doesn’t compromise on either style or comfort – the front seats are super supportive, and the ride overall is very comfortable. Admittedly, you might be a little cramped in the rear seats, and the interiors aren’t quite as luxurious as competitors. Still, if you’re looking for a small car that’s both good looking and super fun to drive throughout this summer, you’d be hard-pressed to beat the Alfa Romeo Giulia.
Volkswagen ID Buzz
This one’s a little cheeky on a list of fun summer cars, as it’s both a van and technically not out yet, but you can register for pre-booking. A fully electric vehicle that charges in around 30 minutes, with an advertised range of over 250 miles, the ID Buzz is also designed to emulate the old VW camper vans in look. If that’s not a core summer vehicle, we don’t know what is. Practical, green and conjuring memories of family holidays, the VW ID Buzz and Buzz Life Pro are guaranteed to get a smile on your face.
A classic launched in 2015, the MX-5 is still topping our list of fun summer cars in 2022. It’s a convertible, providing the perfect chance to make the most of sunny weather, but is also comparatively affordable and reliable, too. It’s also a sleek car in terms of design. Plus, the drive is excellent, thanks to the rear-wheel drive layout and sports-car-like feel and control. It’s only a two-seater, so it’s not suitable as a family car – and you certainly won’t be able to cart around large suitcases. But, for a fun summer car, the MX-5 is formidable.
Not to be sniffed at, the i30N has alloy wheels, a two-litre turbocharged petrol engine, and a six-speed gearbox, making it a dream to drive. Note that you can pay extra for a dual-clutch automatic gearbox and a ‘fastback form’, if you want to live out your racing car fantasies. The interiors are sleek and comfortable too, with touchscreen technology and impressive safety features.
For urban drivers, a Mini Convertible is hard to beat. It’s expensive, sure, but the running costs are reasonable, and it’s a Mini. That means it’s super fun to drive, and you have your choice of trim, depending on what model you go for – but, being Mini, even the entry-level is pretty swish. The convertible drives well, with good fuel efficiency and agile handling. Be aware, though, that the drive is a little firm.
