Best new cars coming in 2020
As we approach the end of a busy motoring year,
it’s time to look forward to the new and exciting models due to arrive in
showrooms in 2020. Here are our top motors to look out for as we start a brand-new
Alfa Romeo Tonale (Late 2020)
Alfa Romeo has gone for a smaller SUV for its
next model, promising sleek and dramatic styling in true Alfa fashion.
Aston Martin DBX (Summer 2020)
It is going to be a year of SUVs and one of the
most eagerly awaited is the DBX, with production already started at Aston
Martin’s new plant in St. Athan in South Wales.
Audi Q4 e-tron (Summer 2020)
The e-tron sub brand is expanding with the Q4
e-tron, more compact than the flagship e-tron and with a promised 280 mile
BMW iX3 (Spring 2020)
BMW is also identifying its all-electric SUV models with a new naming convention and the iX3 is its first, with a promised range of ‘more than 249 miles’.
Ford Puma (early 2020)
We’ve seen the sensibly sized Puma in the metal
already but it just sneaks into our 2020 list with deliveries starting from
Honda e (Spring 2020)
The cute, kei car homage Honda e has huge appeal: it’s packed with tech and will come with a very usable 120-mile range.
Honda Jazz (Spring 2020)
The second important Honda on our list is the new Jazz. All fourth generation models will be hybrids.
Hyundai i10 (January 2020)
The little i10 has grown-up with contemporary
styling and promise of a sporty i10 N to join the line-up.
Jaguar F-Type (Spring 2020)
The new F-Type is one of a number of new Jaguar models promised for 2020 including F-PACE and XF. There is also a new 450 PS V8 to look forward to.
Kia Soul EV (early 2020)
Kia’s boxy and practical Soul will be EV only.
It’s available to order now for deliveries in 2020.
Land Rover Defender (early 2020)
Arguably the most eagerly awaited model for 2020 is the new Defender. Cleverly styled and utterly capable off road, it’s already attracting huge attention.
Mercedes-Benx EQA (late 2020)
Mercedes-Benz is pushing its EQ sub-branding for some dramatically-styled all-electric models. The eye-catching EQA will follow the larger EQC and we’re told it will have a 249 mile range.
Peugeot 2008 (early 2020)
Peugeot has produced some impressive designs in
recent years and the new 2008 is likely to be a strong player, full of useful
tech and will also be available as an EV.
SEAT El Born EV (Summer 2020)
Sharing the same platform and electric running
gear as the Volkswagen ID.3, the electric El Born adds a little Spanish flair.
Toyota Yaris (Summer 2020)
Toyota has made a huge leap with the new Yaris
styling. The range will comprise petrol and hybrid variants.
Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet (Spring 2020)
It might be in answer to a question nobody asked, but if you want a small, convertible SUV then there’s only one model and it will be available soon: the T-Roc Cabriolet.
