If you are a car enthusiast, you would be really excited about the year 2021 as several new car models are being launched with design changes, technological innovations, and whatnot.
Want to find out about what 2021 has in store?
Here are 7 upcoming cars you need to look out for as the new year arrives:
1. The Volkswagen ID.4
2021 is going to be the year for electric cars and why shouldn’t it be? It is beyond time we adopted the more environment-friendly alternative.
The Volkswagen ID.4 leaves you no short of a reason to shift to the new vehicle convention. It is the first time that Volkswagen is introducing a purpose-built all-electric vehicle.
This beautiful EV stands apart from others with its stunning design and powerful engine. It also comes with an optional glass roof that adds even more gravitas to the design.
However, while a 300-mile driving range is a norm for EVs, the car can only offer up to 250 miles.
Where the Volkswagen lacks in range, it makes with a phenomenal charge time. Offering 60 miles of driving range in just 10 minutes of charge time, the car is a very sweet deal!
2. The New Ford Bronco
Ford Bronco has definitely made a name for itself among the best SUVs in the market.
The 2021 model comes with 35-inch tires and an updated 4x4 system to support off-roading. This time, it is also equipped with an automatic case shift system that makes your life easier when off-roading.
The new single-pedal driving mechanism helps you get the perfect acceleration and braking when crawling rocks. At the same time, its 95:1 crawl ratio is pretty impressive on its own.
The sports variant of the Bronco doesn’t boast the same off-roading power but is more cost-effective.
3. Chrysler Pacifica AWD
This All-Wheel Drive feature can help your vehicle stay on course during slippery road conditions like rain and snow.
If you seek the AWD feature in a minivan, you might have found very few that live up to your expectations.
Now, Chrysler Pacifica AWD comes equipped with just what you need.
It isn’t your muscular go-to car for a drag race, But it’s a perfectly comfortable ride for your family on days when the road conditions aren’t as good.
Through some redesigning, the manufacturers have been able to optimize the seating space in the car. To top it off, this optimization does not come at the expense of its Stow ‘n Go feature as previously expected.
4. Hyundai Santa Cruz
Hyundai Santa Cruz is a rather unique vehicle for its category. It is built with unibody construction, while most other trucks are made with body-on-frame construction.
What does this mean?
It means that the chassis and the body are integrated into a single unit.
While the strength and off-roading capabilities are slightly lower than similar cars, this feature gives an incredible boost to the crash safety and efficiency of the Santa Cruz.
Still primarily a pickup vehicle, it is expected to come with a four-cylinder, turbocharged 235 horsepower engine. Thus, it will serve its purpose with the added utility and efficiency.
A powerful pickup with an advanced safety design, Hyundai Santa Cruz cannot be underestimated.
5. Mazda CX-30 Turbo
Mazda has always been associated with a very specific image of sports cars. But Mazda has recently introduced a more diverse portfolio of vehicles with the same superior features.
The Mazda CX-30 Turbo is testimony to the elegance and power the recent Mazda lineup offers. It comes with a 250 horsepower, four-cylinder, turbocharged engine with expected AWD. The design speaks for itself.
6. Tesla Roadster
The return of the Tesla Roadster has been anticipated for some time now and 2021 might just be the year we witness its arrival.
Perhaps for the first time in history, an electric vehicle comes with the promise of being the quickest car in the world – offering a zero-to-sixty in just 1.9 seconds! To add to it, the second generation Tesla Roadster is expected to reach a top-speed of over 250mph.
The vehicle also boasts seating for four and a stunning interior that matches any luxury car experience.
7. Audi Q4 E-Tron
Electric engines and unbelievable speeds seem to be the trend this year.
The Audi Q4 E-Tron boasts a horsepower of 302 and can go from 0 to 60 in 6.3 seconds.
With a cockpit-like interior and dynamic exterior, the vehicle is designed for superior speed and engine performance. At the same time, the SUV model assures comfort and safety for its passengers.
Volkswagen has also built the new MEB platform into the Audi Q4 E-Tron, like the Volkswagen ID.4.
