Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Throughout 2019, there will be plenty of new vehicles hitting the market, some with more impact than others. Whilst the Tesla 3 is the hotly anticipated electric vehicle of 2019, there are lots more that are more affordable, and more useful, for businesses or individuals looking to lease or rent a new car.

For this article, we highlight a selection of the makes and models that we’re looking forward to seeing next year. These are just a few, but hopefully they give you some inspiration if you’re planning on changing your vehicle over the next 12 months.

BMW 1 Series

Price: Estimated (from) £23,000

When: Late 2019

The new BMW 1 Series is losing the rear-wheel-drive format, in favour of the front-wheel-drive layout of their existing Mini range. Not only does this mean that there’s more interior and luggage room, but the new configuration M140i will feature a four-cylinder turbo engine and xDrive four-wheel drive.

Hyundai i30 Fastback N

Price: Estimated (from) £25,500

When: February 2019

Customers are able to choose from the 248bhp, 2.0 litre motor or a 272bhp Performance version when the Hyundai i30 Fastback N is released for sale. Hyundai has said that the Fastback is the first five-door performance coupé in the C-segment.

Kia ProCeed

Price: Estimated (from) £24,000

When: January 2019

It looks like Kia has been working on giving their models a facelift. The new Kia ProCeed will only come in sporty GT-Line and GT trims, even though it shares much of the interior with the Cee’d and Sportswagon. However, they have said that the suspension has been firmed, making it more agile than the hatchback and estate counterparts.

Porsche 911

Price: Estimated (from) £78,000

When: Early 2019

Whilst the classic 911 profile remains the same, there are plenty of upgrades to the technology and the interior to keep sports car enthusiasts happy, including a full-width, LED taillight treatment, the latest infotainment system and high-resolution displays. There have been rumours that two plug-in hybrid options will be available, but we’ll see how that goes further into 2019.

Seat Tarraco

Price: Estimated (from) £27,000

When: January 2019

SEAT has been improving and upgrading their models over recent years. From the limited edition Ibiza FR Red Technology model to the Ateca, there are plenty of makes and models for customers to choose from.

But in the New Year the latest model, the Tarraco, will be released, creating more competition for existing SUVs including the VW Tiguan or the Skoda Kodiaq.

Petrol and diesel options will both be available, with engines ranging from 148bhp to 187bhp. SEAT will also be adding a plug-in hybrid model to the range.

Volvo S60

Price: Estimated (from) £30,000

When: Summer 2019

Rumour has it that the Volvo S60 is being released as part of this manufacturer’s continuous move against Audi, BMW and Mercedes models. Built in the US, the S60 will feature a wide range of turbocharged and supercharged 2.0 litre engines. It also comes with a large load compartment of 442 litres, and the option of a 60/40 split, along with a folding rear backrest.
