2020's Most Exciting New Cars

2020 has been a tough year for everyone. From lockdowns and the threat of COVID-19, to the ever-changing guidelines and restrictions as to what can and can’t be done, every industry and interest has been affected in some way. In the world of the automotive industry, we’ve seen declines in sales of new vehicles, the postponement of MOTs for drivers in the UK earlier this year and roads quieter than we’ve ever seen them before.

But amongst all of the confusion and uncertainty, we’ve also seen some incredible new cars on the market. To end 2020 on a high note, we’re taking a look at the most exciting cars of this year.

Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA

2020's Most Exciting New Cars

The Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA is easily the brand’s most powerful vehicle to date. Despite holding the same twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre v6 engine as the Quadrifoglio, the GTA is still set to be a whole 30bhp more powerful and all thanks to a few calibration tweaks and the new titanium Akrapovic exhaust. Power fans can expect a whopping 533bhp from this vehicle and 100kg less weight than its predecessor. The carbon fibre bonnet, roof panel, front bumper, wheel arches, arch inserts and driveshaft lend themselves to a lightweight car perfect for speed, while a bespoke suspension set up makes corners and control a breeze.



Jaguar E-Pace


The Jaguar E-Pace has always been a stylish and luxurious vehicle, but the 2020 revamp has brought this up a whole new level. Alongside a general facelift, the small but spacious SUV has also been moved to a new platform. Ditching the Ford-related D8 platform, the new E-Pace will feature Jaguar Land Rover’s new PTA platform, which is set to provide better performance, handling and overall driving refinement as a result. This also means that the E-Pace can now accommodate both hybrid, and plug-in options, which was the sole purpose of the change. It allows for seven new engine types, with six being hybridised and one, the manual 161bhp diesel entry point model, being the only non-hybrid option.

Mercedes Benz GLE Coupe


The brand new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is a vehicle designed to turn heads, and turn heads it does. It’s sleek design makes it compact, but with just as much space as the GLE SUV, even out-competing the X6 by 10% in terms of boot capacity. The technology highlights feature ENERGIZING packages, a Memory package and the innovative MBUX Augmented Reality navigation system, making driving this vehicle not only a joy, but an experience in and of itself.

Polestar 1

 
This incredible hybrid sportscar is one for the history box, offering 600 horsepower and 1000 NM of torque for a powerful, fast and race-ready ride. With a 2-litre turbo engine and an impressive electric motor up front, as well as two additional motors powering the rear axle, the control and drive quality are impressive. With 150km of full-electric range and instant performance thanks to the powerful motors, the Polestar 1 is a performance-ready hybrid vehicle, and one of the most advanced and visually stunning that we’ve seen in a while.

Ford Kuga

 
The Ford Kuga’s latest update included a unique new look that will leave sports car enthusiasts satisfied. The elegant but sporty silhouette makes it the perfect midsize SUV for space and style and starting at £24,615, it’s one of the more affordable models on the market. Now available in 3 hybrid and electric models, the Kuga has moved forward with the ever-growing Electric Vehicle market, putting it forward as a viable option for the environmentally conscious among us. To top it off, you can also find top quality Ford servicing and repairs at affordable prices, local to you, helping to reduce the servicing costs for motorists.

2020 might have had it’s downs, but there have been plenty of ups too. With these new vehicles on the market and plenty more to come as we head into the new year, we’re eager to see just what 2021 has to offer!
