As the new year has begun, many of us would be looking forward to achieving our goals and resolutions that we’ve listed down. Not only resolutions, it is surely undeniable that some of us will also be eagerly waiting for new launches every year.
Usually the common goals are being fit, buying house and definitely getting a car. If the last one is in your list, check out the below:
BMW Alpina XB7
The discreet cosmetic revisions and the upgraded engines of the Alpina X7 is expected to boast a revised suspension setup to make the full-size SUV a bit more agile while going through the corners – as agile as a three-row heavy SUV can possibly be. The Alpina XB7 will probably utilize an uprated version of the ubiquitous twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 taken to somewhere in the region of 600 horsepower.
Audi Sport EV
The Audi Sport EV will be the vehicle creator’s range-beating pure electric model, sitting over the EV and EV Sportback SUVs in the company’s EV pecking order. The electric Audi ought to have a promoted scope of around 248 miles on a solitary charge. The quick charging accreditations ought to likewise make it to the generation vehicle where it can revive to 80% of its “more than 90kWh” battery limit in 20 minutes (through a 350kW ultra-quick charging point), which compares to around 200 miles of range.
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe
The M235i Gran Coupe will become the range-topper in the 2 Series Gran Coupe line-up and according to a new report, the small four-door coupe/sedan will be sold exclusively with all-wheel drive. As far as the M235i flagship version is concerned, it will share its hardware with the X2 M35i. This means a 2.0-liter turbo engine will work under the hood generating 302 horsepower (225 kilowatts) and a peak torque of 450 Newton-meters (332 pound-feet) – or something along those numbers.
In fall 2016, BMW confirmed its plans to go ahead with an all-electric version of the X3 SUV, and last summer, announced its arrival some time for the 2020 model year. The X3e (or iX3) will share the X3e’s platform and most components; the electric powertrain will likely be borrowed from the BMW “i” line-up.
Chevrolet Bolt EUV
Chevrolet’s battery engineering team improved the energy of the cell electrodes by making changes to the cell chemistry. The new cells look exactly the same as the old ones and have the same dimensions. The 2020 Bolt’s battery pack has the same number of cells, 288, as before, they are just more energy dense. The improvements result in an additional 6 kWh of energy, increasing the Bolt’s battery pack to 66 kWh, up from 60 kWh. The Bolt can now charge faster on a DC fast charger under different ambient temperatures. The 2020 Bolt EV can now charge at up to 150% faster in cold temperatures than it was previously capable of.
Hennessey Venom F5 / Roadster
The Venom F5’s engine, a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V8, would produce 1,817 horsepower (1,354 kilowatts) and 1,193 pound-feet (1,617 Newton-meters) of torque. The engine incorporates a unique manifold design that, according to the company, places the intercooler between the plenum and cylinder heads. This lowers the inlet air temperatures from the turbochargers as it goes into the combustion chamber, which results in greater air density and overall greater power efficiency. This helps the engine produces its high-power figures with the mill offering over 1,000 lb-ft (1,355 Nm) of torque from 2,000 to 8,000 rpm.
Hyundai Santa Cruz Pickup
Hyundai announced that the Santa Cruz has been given green light for production and will join the brand’s Stateside line-up for the 2020 model year. At a first glance it might look like it has only two doors but the Santa Cruz actually comes with rear-hinged rear doors providing an easier access to the rear seats and they blend nicely with the overall design. Power comes from a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine outputting 190 bhp (142 kW) and 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque sent to a HTRAC all-wheel drive system which enables the truck to return 30 mpg US (36 mpg UK or 7.8 litres / 100 km).
Land Rover Road Rover
The upcoming Land Rover Road Rover will be a compact SUV designed to compete with the upcoming Porsche Macan and Audi E-Tron. It will have an electric powertrain, in keeping with Land Rover’s decree that its line-up will be heavily electrified in the coming years, and mild off-road capabilities are a possibility. The “skateboard” architecture will offer battery capacity of up to 90 kilowatt-hours with a range of around 290 miles of range.
Our ‘Two Sats’
Not only the abovementioned cars, but there are a few more that are proposed to be launched this year. Looking at the sophisticated design and feature, many would surely fall in love with them and can’t wait no more to explore more about them. So, let us all hope for great ride for a wonderful experience.
