Best cars from the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show

Amongst the large and impressive collection of cars that attended this year’s show in Shanghai were numerous cars which are currently on sale now from select Perrys Dealerships or will likely become available from such showrooms in the near future.

A vast variety of cars were in attendance, ranging from family cars, to hot hatches, SUVs, sports cars and others. Here is our pick of the best cars at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show available now or coming soon to nearby Perrys Dealership.

Range Rover Sport

The brand new Range Rover Sport made its stunning public debut towards the end of last month, when it was driven through closed-off streets of Manhattan by James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

The SUV has many similar upgrades to the new 2013 Range Rover, including a lightweight aluminium bodyshell and a lightweight suspension package.

The Range Rover Sport is expected to launch in the UK during the third quarter of 2013. Expect prices to begin in a region of £55,000.

Citroen DS Wild Rubis

This new member for the trendy Citroen DS range could form a new compact SUV-style production model, which could then potentially rival the likes of the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.

The design of the DS Wild Rubis Concept includes large 21″ alloy wheels, a bold chrome trimmed grille and a panoramic roof on top. The DS Wild Rubis also sports full-LED headlights, roof rails and a Ruby Red paintjob.

Ford Fiesta ST

The exciting new Ford Fiesta ST is set to go on sale in the UK market later this month. Its makers are hoping the hot hatch can become a hit in the Chinese market, much like it is set to become here in Euripe. UK prices for the Ford Fiesta ST start at £16,995.

The Ford Fiesta ST is available to order now from Perrys Ford Dealerships located in Aylesbury and High Wycombe.

Jaguar F-Type

One of the most anticipated car launches this year, the Jaguar F-Type has been racking up the pre-orders impressively in both Europe and America.

The all-new two-door sports car has now appeared in Shanghai in an effort to spread its growing appeal further to motorists in Asia.

Here in the UK the Jaguar F-Type is available to order now from Perrys Jaguar Dealership in Huddersfield, with prices starting from £58,520.

Kia CUB Concept

The CUB was previously seen at the 2013 Seoul International Motor Show earlier this month. This car indicates what design direction the manufacturer Kia could go down as it weighs up the possibility of creating its first two-door coupe for production.

Like earlier Kia coupe concepts, the CUB is an interesting and sporty looking creation which reportedly uses the same 200bhp 1.6-litre GDI petrol engine that’ll come on the upcoming Kia Cee’d GT.

Ford Escort

For a long while the Ford Escort was one of the most popular selling car names in the UK market, however its production originally ended more than a year ago.

Over in Shanghai this year however, the Escort name has made a surprise return for this new compact saloon concept.

While the planned production version of this car is currently being aimed at the Chinese market, Ford has reportedly acknowledged the global market potential this new Escort carries.

Chevrolet Cruze Hatch

The Chevrolet Cruze Hatch has actually been on sale in the UK for nearly two years, but now its makers have seen fit to display in China in an attempt to reach out to this lucrative customer base.

Currently starting from £14,570, motorists in Britain can get their hands on a Chevrolet Cruze model at Perrys Chevrolet Dealerships in Dover and Rotherham.


In foreign markets including China the Mazda6 is sold under an alternative model name, the Atenza.

The latest award-winning Mazda6 range is available now from Perrys Mazda Dealerships located in Barnsley, Blackburn, Huddersfield, Portsmouth and Preston. Prices for the Mazda6 start at £19,595 for the saloon bodystyle and £21,265 for the Tourer estate version.

Ford Mondeo

The new Escort concept was not the only saloon model which Ford brought to the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.

The upcoming next-generation Mondeo, called the Fusion in America, is expected to arrive in the UK market during early 2014.

The current version of the Ford Mondeo is still available at Perrys Ford Dealerships in Aylesbury and High Wycombe.

Renault Twizy

The quirky little Renault Twizy has become a hit in highly populated cities across Europe and now it has arrived in Shanghai to find extra appeal in the Asia continent.

This tiny two-seater electric car should attract some interest at least because of its zero-emission powertrain. Prices for the Renault Twizy here in the UK currently start at £6,690. You can find the Twizy now at Perrys Renault Dealership in Aylesbury.
