Cars arriving autumn 2019
If you want to be at the head of the queue for
something all-new, there are many models poised for launch this autumn. Some
are even available to place orders now. Here’s our tempting A-Z list with
everything from family models to supercars.
Aston Martin DBX
The first SUV from the brand, Aston Martin is
now able to compete with the other luxury performance car makers with its DBX,
available from this month.
Audi Q3 Sportback
In case the six current SUV models don’t meet your
needs, Audi has introduced a seventh, delivering SUV-coupé styling with its
new Q3 Sportback.
BMW 1 Series
Generation three of BMW’s 1 Series will deliver
improved interior space with its move to front wheel drive.
BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé
BMW’s flagship coupé and convertible models are
now joined by a more practical, and extremely elegant, four-door grand tourer.
Ferrari F8 Tributo
The F8 Tributo replaces the engaging 488 GTB.
With its new V8 engine adding an extra 49 bhp, it hauls itself to 62 mph from
rest in a mere 2.9 seconds.
Ford has been late to the party but finally
resurrected the Puma name for its small SUV crossover.
Accessible pricing plus clean retro looks give
the all-electric Honda e instant appeal.
Kia Soul EV
Order banks are open for Kia’s charismatic new
Soul (although first deliveries will be just into 2020). It’ll be all-electric
Land Rover Discovery Sport
The new Discovery Sport adds visual changes
inside and out, along with the use of mild hybrid technology.
Based on the Mazda 3 yet sitting between the
CX-3 and CX-5 in the line-up, the CX-30 is an attractive model in this busy
Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake
Complementing the hatch and saloon, the estate -
sorry, shooting brake - adds both practicality and a character all of its own.
The new GLB combines a compact footprint with
all-round practicality, including seven seats and two- or all-wheel-drive.
It is 60 years since the first Mini rolled off
the production line. Now it is time for the all-electric version, with similar
performance figures to the Cooper S.
The car which launched the whole B-SUV segment
retains its bold looks for the all-new second generation.
Order books are now open for this charismatic
hatchback. It will be available as petrol, diesel and electric e-208.
The new 2008 brings Peugeot’s smaller SUV
visually in-line with its larger siblings as well as adding an electric e-2008
Porsche Cayenne Coupé
It seems everyone is at it: chopping the roofs
of regular SUVs to create coupé versions. Now it’s Porsche’s turn with the
Cayenne Coupé, offering buyers extra choice.
The mildest of visual changes for the fifth
generation Clio but a whole host of improvements within. Lighter, stronger,
safer, the new Clio is available from October.
Like the new Clio, it is a gentle visual step forward
but it is 110mm longer than the outgoing model and a major leap forward in
Described as a city SUV, the Kamiq is Škoda’s
third SUV. It brings the brand’s strong common-sense values to the smaller end
of the SUV sector.
Superb in both name and nature, 2019 brings a
mid-life refresh to this accomplished model.
It’s familiar-looking but in fact all-new. No
diesel, hybrid or manual gearbox but extremely able off-road.
After 17 years, the evocative Supra name is
back. Supercar performance and thrills, with a starting price of just £52,695.
The Corsa has been long overdue an overhaul and
here is the fresh-faced result. Now part of PSA Group, the new model shares
many parts, including engines, with the new Peugeot 208.
