Following on from November last year, the time of the year when all the automotive show seasons start, at DotCom Magazine we wanted to take some time to look at what manufacturers have been introducing with regards to the next car model year. In the following post we are going to look at five cars we can expect at some point in the future, though most likely during 2020.
Volvo Polestar 1 2020
Volvo recently moved the Polestar line of models and gave it its very own sub-branding. Polestar will release its first proper vehicle, a plug-in hybrid 2-door coupe. This was presented originally as nothing more than a concept car back in 2013, but now it looks like a strong contender to be one of the leading cars in the high-performance, small hybrid market.
The brand-new model with has two electric motors providing power to the back wheels while a gas engine runs the front of the car, with a third motor connecting the two engines together. This combination is said to produce 737lb ft of torque at 600-bhp and will have a range of around 93-miles on a single charge.
Toyota Supra 2020
It was back in 2014 when Toyota released their concept car called the FT-1 or Future-Toyota 1. The tough and ferocious style of the design made people think it was going to be the brand-new take on the Supra. 21 years after the much-favored Supra was taken off the market, it is back and was unveiled during the middle of January at the Detroit Auto Show. A BMW 3.0-liter turbocharged engine capable of 365lb ft of torque from 335-bhp.
BMW M340i 2020
BMW have a redesigned take on their 3 Series in the works and are set to introduce it with the M340i trim, later in the year. This form of the car will also be released in an all-wheel-drive version and is set to be the most powerful of that series so far, well other than the M3, of course.
It will be powered by a meaty inline-6 engine that provides the horsepower as stated above, which works out at around 130 more than other 3 series models. The company predicts that tit will be able to reach 60mph from 0 in not much more than 4 seconds. To say we are excited is putting it lightly.
One of the most popular compact Mazda cars on the market is getting a redress for its 4th generation. It will feature new interior, an improved and tweaked chassis, a different kind of engine, more power and the option of all-wheel-drive. The main engine for the car will be a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder beast capable of 18bhp.
Porsche 911 2020
This is undeniably what some people see as being the most iconic sports car in the world. Porsche is taking the daring move and looking to improve on what many would deem as perfection with a brand-new version for 2020. It will incorporate more tech and generate more power. We cannot wait.
