The new year/new decade is an exciting yet interesting time for car buyers and the car industry as a whole.
Engines are more efficient than they’ve ever been, safety technology means we are protected from almost every potential hazard, and in-car comfort and entertainment options make your wheels almost like your own living room.
But car companies are not resting on their laurels and there are a range of fantastic new cars driving your way in the new year.
From luxury motors to smaller practical vehicles, there’s something for all types of driver. Here are our top 10 new cars coming to the roads in 2020.
One of the most versatile cars on the market, the Audi A3 is ideal for the modern professional who wants a comfortable commute during the week, but that also has the size you might need to cater for the kids at the weekend.
The newest version of the A3 is due out at the end of the year and brings with it a whole host of upgrades and features.
The LED lights are the highlight (literally!), but one of the optional extras is the self-driving technology that helps make your life even easier.
The launch of the new 3 Series in 2019 was another success for BMW, so the release of their 2-door model the 4 Series is highly anticipated.
This sleek coupe is a real stunner, whether in the fixed roof version or the convertible fold-away top with its lightweight cloth roof.
It’s expected that when this car hits the road towards the end of the year, it will have a lot of the interior design choices and quality that made the 3 series such a hit.
Electric and hybrid models are likely to become the most popular cars of choice so it’s good to see that Fiat have decided to give their most iconic model the green makeover.
The Fiat 500 electric keeps the unique styling that has made the car an icon, but fitted an electric engine with a range up to 300 miles.
This is a stylish choice for city living, where you’ll never be too far away from a charging station.
The relaunch of the Ford Mustang a few years ago was greeted with joy by car lovers across the world.
The classic muscle car has been successfully brought back and in 2020, a hybrid version joins the market.
It might seem a bit incongruous to put green technology in the body of a muscle car, but if we want to live in a better environment certain sacrifices must be made.
Hyundai have been producing some of the best models on the market over the last decade, and it looks set to continue into the next.
The i10 is their smallest, entry level model, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality and reliability.
The new 2020 model is bigger than before, which is felt especially in the interior as there’s a sense of space you didn’t have in earlier models. A small car that feels a lot less small, something the budget-conscious are always interested in.
Based on the Volkswagen Golf (see later in this list), the brand-new SEAT Leon will take a lot of the engine efficiency, interior tech, and safety features of its German cousin, but put it in a far sportier shell. And, for the eco-conscious, there will be a hybrid version for the first time ever.
The return of one of the champs! The Skoda Octavia has been winning multiple car of the year awards over the last decade, having become the best rated family car.
But other companies have been looking to muscle in on that success, so the newest version has a lot of pressure on it to continue the success of its predecessor. The new model is bigger, with a range of engines including hybrid options. Less reinventing the wheel, more polishing it.
Expect to see more Tesla cars on the road in the UK as the charging network grows to match the demand from existing and potential electric drivers.
The Model Y is due in the summer. The compact SUV model has up to seven seats, making it the first big foray into the family car market for Tesla.
Range is from 200-300 miles, depending on the version you choose. But whatever you go for, Tesla cars are some of the finest electric models on the market.
Another electric SUV, the Vauxhall Mokka X has been designed to look just like its petrol and diesel counterparts, something that consumers have a demand for (according to research conducted by Vauxhall).
The car company is making a big push into the green market, and the Mokka X EV will have a range of over 180 miles, impressive for a car of its size.
Last but by no means least, the Volkswagen Golf will be entering its incredible eighth generation in 2020.
Having first hit the road in the 1970s, the newest edition is a far cry from its original self. Now you can choose from a whole host of different engine options, including hybrid models.
It will be interesting to see how the new model is received after the emissions scandal. But it’s safe to say the car itself will be one of the best hatchbacks on the market.
