You might still be waiting impatiently for your next car, but the shortage of computer chips isn't stopping this year's new model launches.
From supercars to superminis, hybrids to hot hatchbacks, we've compiled a comprehensive list of all the models coming out over the next 12 months.
Citroen C5X: Is it a saloon, an SUV or an estate? We can’t decide. But Citroën hopes it will revive the stagnant large car market. Like a lot of rivals, it will come with either pure petrol or petrol PHEV powertrains, while fans of Citroens of old will be pleased to see it uses a hydraulic cushion suspension set-up, aping the driving style of historic Citroën saloon cars such as the DS and CX.
Dacia Jogger: Segment-straddling Sandero sibling is the UK’s cheapest seven-seater, starting from £14,995. To keep costs down, there aren’t any fancy, drop-into-the-floor folding seats but what buyers will get is more of the no-nonsense Dacia sensibilities that have characterised all the firm’s cars. Air conditioning, cruise control and rear parking sensors equipped as standard across the range.
Genesis GV60: Genesis’s first EV is a crossover that shares the impressively well-rounded E-GMP platform with the acclaimed Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. Like those cars, it gets a four-wheel-drive, dual-motor range-topper with performance “comparable to a sports car”. We’ll be the judge of that.
Lexus RZ: The RZ is Lexus' first bespoke electric vehicle and will spearhead the firm's model range or premium and dynamically oriented EVs. Set to arrive by the end of 2022, the car is similar in size to the Lexus NX, which is currently the car maker's best-seller. It's based on the same platform as the Toyota bZ4X and the Subaru Solterra, but will sit in a more premium position. Power comes from a 71.4kWh battery which provides up to 250 miles of range. Lexus promises energy retention of up to 90% of its usable capacity after ten years.
Citroen C5 Aircross: Mid-life trim changes for eminently practical family hauler include a facelift Skrotpræmie and uprated infotainment with a 10.0in infotainment display and a larger 12.3in unit behind the steering wheel. In a fiercely competitive class, these won’t change the automotive landscape, but will serve to tighten up what has always been a comfort-focused family SUV.
Dacia Spring EV: The Spring, despite being electric, keeps things as simple as its fuel-sipping siblings. Four seats, 44bhp, 140 miles of range and one Euro NCAP safety star… This Chinese-built budget urban EV could be confirmed for the UK market in January.
