What’s our favourite thing about the New Year? New car models making their way to Australia, of course!
And in 2021 there is plenty to get excited about. See which new vehicles we’re most looking forward to seeing on the showroom floor.
Hyundai Tucson N line
The new-generation Tucson will be like no other: think bigger, sharper and more high-tech. The N line will feature an entertainment system with a fully-digital instrument cluster, as well as a sporty new look including 19-inch alloy wheels.
Expected to launch in Q2, the Tucson N line will feature a 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine, while hybrid options are still under consideration for an Australian release.
Australians love an SUV — and we’ve endured a long wait for the new Kluger to reach our shores. The latest model will have options for both a V6 and a hybrid engine. It also capitalises on the roomy interior the Kluger is known for, with 30mm more interior length compared to the previous model, including space for seven occupants.
Volkswagen Golf GTI
The new Golf GTI is another hotly anticipated release expected for a local launch in 2021. It features a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. Keep an eye out for this one — it’s likely to land in Australia by the middle of the year.
Mercedes-Benz’s luxury flagship is getting a smart-tech makeover. And, true to form, the new S-Class features the luxury interiors that Mercedes-Benz is known for. With additions such as driver assist, improved interior lighting, the new MBUX infotainment system and an augmented reality head-up display, there is plenty to be excited about.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
After its release was pushed back by COVID-19, the L model Jeep Grand Cherokee is likely to reach Australia by late 2021. The biggest overhaul from previous iterations will be its interior, with a digital infotainment screen and instrument cluster. It’s expected to be available as a seven-seat model with either a V6 or V8 engine. A five-seat option, simply called the ‘Jeep Grand Cherokee’ will be available too.
The Nissan Navara is getting an aesthetic overhaul, with a much bolder new look for the ute’s front end. The majority of the Navara’s range of cab chassis, king cab and dual-cab body options will be powered by a 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, along with a reverse parking camera and an intelligent driver alert.
There is plenty on the agenda if you’re in the market for a car in 2021. But if you’re not looking to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a brand new car, why not make your old car feel new again?
