As we wave goodbye to a past decade of cars, we can now say hello to what will power us through the next ten years of our lives. 2020 will see a number of new and exciting vehicles entering the market, ranging from SUVs to all-electric hypercars.
These are the best new cars of 2020:
Honda have long been known for building some of the best daily commuter cars, with icons like the Civic having revolutionized the small car. However, with the new Honda e the Japanese automaker will be entering the electric car market.
Honda are marketing this car as a small commuter with an agreeably small range of just 136 miles, via a 36kWh battery pack. However, charging times should be quite brisk as the Honda e should be able to add up to 108 miles to its battery pack in just 30 minutes. On the downside, it doesn’t have the best range: the 36kWh battery is good for around 136 miles, according to Honda, however, independent testing should be able to provide a more realistic number.
Coming in Summer of 2020
Tesla's Model 3 has proven that there is a huge appetite in the market for a mid-priced luxury sedan, and now the Swedish automaker Polestar wants to have a go at it as well. A subsidiary of Volvo, Polestar represent the high-tech side of the Swedish conglomerate.
With a rather impressive range of 310 miles, the all-electric polestar will start at $45,000 which is $6,000 more than the Model 3. However, it will come with more standard equipment, and a more traditional interior with subdued Swedish styling leading the way.
Coming in June 2020
Perhaps the most controversial car of the year the Mach-E represents Ford's first foray into the electric SUV market. Setting aside the frankly embarrassing use of the Mustang nameplate the Mach-E has an alleged maximum range of 370 miles, with many interior cues coming from Tesla, and a variety of powertrain and battery options the Mach-E is sure to make a splash.
Coming in late 2020
Aston Martin DBX
Sticking with the SUV trend, the DBX represents Aston's first foray into the luxury SUV market. Despite it's drastic departure from tradition the British automaker insists that the DBX is a proper Aston at heart, partly in thanks to its 542bhp twin-turbocharged V8 engine, making it the most powerful V8 Aston have ever put into a production car.
Coming in the summer of 2020
Audi e-tron GT
Looking a bit like an Audi R8 and a Porsche Taycan got into a fist fight the new e-tron GT represents Audi's first foray into the electric sedan market. With technology coming from the Taycan Turbo S not much is known about Audi's newest car, however, if the Taycan is anything to go by it should be blisteringly fast.
Coming in late 2020
Land Rover Defender
It's back! After a hiatus of a few years Land Rover have brought back their most iconic model, the Defender. With retro-looking styling the new Defender boasts a completely reworked 4x4 powertrain, and for the first time ever in a Defender some luxury features! Some of the new creature comforts include a touchscreen infotainment system, parking cameras, and a 14-speaker premium sound system.
However, Land Rover insist that the new Defender is still a rugged offroader at heart, boasting that it's still possible to hose out the floor of the interior, as there is still no sill around the door.
Coming in early 2020
Unvieled late last year the new Roma represents Ferrari's attempt at capturing a younger audience. Marketed as a sporting-GT, the Roma "borrows" quite a few styling cues from the Aston Martin Vantage sports car. Starting at an estimated $225,000 the Roma will be powered by a turbocharged V8 pushing out just over 660 horsepower.
Coming in late 2020
Yes yes I know, not another Tesla, but when released the new Roadster will represent a true revolution in the performance car world. With a claimed 0-60 MPH time of just 1.9 seconds the new roadster will feature a 600 mile range, along with all of the other Tesla-tech. Furthermore, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has boasted that the new Roadster will be available with an optional SpaceX rocket pack, something which might even enable the car to fly.
Expected to arrive in late 2020, but really who knows?
