Twenty-one is going to be a huge year for the auto industry, and we can’t wait for these new releases.
Arrives in the UK only in competition form which gets 503bhp out of the 3. 0-liter six-cylinder twin turbo engine with first-ever all-wheel drive – although one of the three available modes effectively turns it into rear-wheel drive. Point out the obligatory smoky BMW Power Slides: In fact, there is a new ten-stage traction control system and a « drift analyzer » under the data acquisition functions. Trick suspension, a seriously rigid body, and clever steering with a variable gear ratio suggest a thoroughbred driver’s car. We even got used to the huge grille.
We are sure that the reality remains visually true to the concept. This makes it one of the best-looking Audis of all time. The fully electric e-Tron GT shares a large part of its hardware with its cousin, the fascinating Taycan from Porsche, and will be available in RS version with an output of 592 hp.
Not even Ferrari can withstand the SUV’s siren call. Or FUV, as the company insists, for « Ferrari Utility Vehicle », which paves the way for the world’s most glamorous automaker to put its own stamp on this huge – and extremely profitable – market segment. Drawing on a new chassis architecture, the details are still sparse, but we know Ferrari is developing a new V6 hybrid that will sit alongside its award-winning twin-turbo V8 and mighty V12 engines. The Purosangue could end up using all three and, not least in terms of its visual design, will differ greatly from competitors such as the Aston Martin DBX, Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus. Expect something really radical from the Maranello house. Is Enzo Ferrari spinning in his grave? No, he was a pragmatist and a businessman, and Ferrari is still about making money. A Ferrari SUV is not for purists, but it is the safest.
Ioniq is Hyundai’s all-electric sub-brand, and the 5 is the first of three cars that will all use a brand new modular platform. Among other things, it will offer bi-directional charging that will allow owners to use the car batteries to store energy and then discharge it back into the national power grid or household network (if you have the facility). . A 6 sedan and a 7 SUV will follow, but the 5 will take its visual traces from the beautiful 45 concept car that was on display at the 2018 Frankfurt Motor Show. Back when we still had them.
Jaguar’s constant quest for relevance amid the brutal realities of a luxury auto market that includes the Tesla Model S means the new XJ must be a) all-electric and b) absolutely gorgeous to look at. Design Director Julian Thomson says, « We want to present something that challenges the norm, offer an alternative that makes it better and more engaging to own and drive at all levels. « . That’s what it’s all about for us: the love of the car. Electric vehicles have a sense of calm, more of a spiritual quality. « The I-Pace demonstrated Jaguar’s immediate mastery of the electric vehicle. Now it must be prayed that the new XJ can repeat the trick in the numbers it desperately needs.
The car that will prepare McLaren for the new decade uses a brand new carbon fiber chassis and is powered by a new 3 Series. 0 liter twin turbo and hybrid V6 engine and overhaul of the interior HMI. This is where the urge for efficient ultra-high performance begins.
Now in its eighth generation, the new SL will bring the company’s coveted two-seater convertible back to its effortlessly stylish roots – the automotive equivalent of the little black dress. Mercedes’ AMG performance department was tasked with developing the SL to ensure it was properly differentiated from AMG’s own GT. On that basis, we would expect it to be more wavy and luxurious. And because Mercedes has thrown the awkwardly folding hardtop overboard in favor of a classic fabric roof, it is also much easier on the eye. In addition to the various turbocharged V8s, a plug-in hybrid will be at the top of the outstanding Mercedes engine range. Could this be the most wanted car of 2021?
As the new electric landscape becomes more focused, the challenge is to give character and quality to a dynamic experience that can be something … the same. The Ariya is a very nice large crossover and will arrive in the UK with a choice of 63 kWh (up to 239 hp and 310 miles claimed range) or 87 kWh (up to 389 hp and 248 mile range) batteries that use a single engine or a more powerful engine can be supplied by twin engines with all-wheel drive. The Ariya looks just as good inside as it does outside: One of the highlights is a 12. Horizontal central 3-inch touchscreen, slim, weightless seats and a remarkable sense of space. Nissan’s commitment to old-school power and propulsion is evident in the 400Z. If it stays true to the Z Proto concept car, we’ll be there.
The Range Rover has become the de facto luxury car over the past two decades, so the arrival of a new one is a significant moment. Only the fifth generation since the model’s arrival in 1970 has it used a “modular longitudinal architecture” that enables conventional engines, plug-in hybrids and, of course, a fully electric drive train, which must be at least 100 kWh in a car of this size to work (although the upcoming so-called « Road Rover » will be Land Rover’s electric trailblazer). By using software over the air updates, the new Range Rover should also be cheaper and easier to maintain. Expect evolving exterior aesthetics with more and more luxury and connectivity inside.
We like Skoda. And this is the entry into the electric battlefield, available in either the “60” or “80” versions and powered by a 62 kWh or 82 kWh battery that drives an electric motor with 176 or 200 hp. It looks fantastic inside and out, with a central 13-inch touchscreen, a “Jumbo Box” storage area under the center console and an integrated digital voice assistant called Laura. The maximum claimed range is 316 miles and there will be a vRS performance version.
Despite its high standards, the current 911 is arguably the best all-round sports car that Porsche has ever built. All the more tempting is the thought of the new GT3 – usually the most satisfying 911 of them all. It is powered by a 4. 0-liter six-cylinder with a naturally aspirated engine that produces 503 hp and up to 9. 000 rpm can rotate. What a sound that will be, the automobile equivalent of an angel choir. A seven-speed dual clutch car or a six-speed manual transmission with a lot of motorsport technology in the chassis will be available. Spoiler alert: There’s a massive and pretty brilliant looking rear spoiler too.
Elon Musk is the second richest man in the world today and has long had a reputation for doing things his own way. It seems to be working for him. The Tesla Cybertruck, whose wantonly wacky look surpasses virtually all car design conventions, will land in 2021 – all right – and can be driven with a single engine for a range of 250 miles, a twin engine for 300 miles, and a new tri engine that promises a remarkable range of 500 miles. The interior has three seats side by side, a 17-inch touchscreen and a pure sci-fi steering wheel. The body is made of « ultra-cold 30X cold-rolled stainless steel ». . Just don’t ask about the armored glazing …
