New cars arriving later this year include Aston Martin DBS 770

Cars arriving in March 2023

Alfa Romeo Tonale PHEV

Already on sale in a mild-hybrid guise, the Tonale crossover will also gain a plug-in variant. Its powertrain consists of a turbocharged 1.3-litre petrol four-pot producing 177bhp and a rear-mounted 121bhp electric motor. Power is managed by a six-speed automatic gearbox and energy supplied by a 15.5kWh battery which allows for a claimed 43-mile electric-only range.

Audi TT RS Iconic Edition

The TT RS Iconic Edition is the last-ever variant of Audi’s third-generation roadster. It packs the same outputs as the standard TT RS, at 395bhp and 345lb ft, but gets the aerodynamic package fitted as standard, a large rear spoiler and special design features. The ultra-limited car is pricey, though, commanding £87,650.


The sharply honed, lightweight BMW M3 CS is the most powerful M3 yet, with a mighty 542bhp and 479lb ft. Accelerating from 50- 75mph takes just 2.6sec and the top speed is electronically limited to 188mph, while a host of design tweaks set it apart from the similarly lairy BMW M3 Competition.

Lexus RX

Entering its fourth generation, the Lexus RX gains a total redesign with plug-in hybrid power available for the first time. The SUV is an important model for Lexus. It’s the firm’s best-selling car, and it claims a bunch of dynamic upgrades including improved body rigidity and better handling are on the cards. It also showcases Lexus’s “hands on the wheel, eyes on the road” ethos.

Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5’s exterior, cabin and chassis will remain identical but it will gain mild-hybrid technology across all of its petrol variants, reducing CO2 output by around 9g/km. The SUV will also be equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the first time and will receive a new trim level in-line with the rest of the Mazda model range.

Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV

The EQS SUV is Mercedes’ new electric luxury flagship, which will challenge the Audi Q8 E-tron and BMW iX. Based on the same platform as the EQS saloon, it offers a range of power levels along with four-wheel drive, topped by a version producing 536bhp and 632lb ft. Range is touted to stand at 364 miles, while price is a sky-high £129,170.

Peugeot e-208

The electric version of Peugeot’s popular 208 supermini will receive a significant range boost in 2023. It will gain the powertrain from the new, larger e-308, with a larger 51kWh battery that will provide up to 248 miles on a single charge. Power also increased to 156bhp, with a 0-62mph time of less than 8.0sec and a claimed average efficiency of 5.18mpkWh.

Cars arriving in April


The XM is the second bespoke model in the M division’s expanding portfolio. With 740bhp on tap from a 4.4-litre V8 and a 194bhp electric motor, the giant SUV will hit 0-62mph in just 4.3sec. That means it will outpace the BMW M5 CS saloon. Not only that, but also the XM is also as economical as it is rapid, claiming up to 188.3mpg, 33g/km of CO2 and an electric-only range of up to 55 miles.

Mazda 2

An exterior and interior redesign is on the way for this supermini, which arrives with a price tag that undercuts much of the competition. Key changes include a new front grille, updated wing surrounds and a lower, sportier bumper. The engine line-up remains the same as the existing car: 73bhp, 88bhp and 113bhp versions of a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine.

Cars arriving in May 2022

Alpine A110 R

A stiffer, lighter version of Alpine’s fantastic sports coupé, the A110 R will arrive next year as the most track-focused A110 yet. It weighs just 1082kg – a 34kg saving – and receives a dynamic boost courtesy of features such as a swan-neck spoiler, a new rear diffuser, reshaped side skirts and a flat undercarriage. It will sit at the top of the A110 model range with a price in excess of £70,000.


The final pure-combustion car to come from BMW’s M division, the second-generation BMW M2 is “the entry drug” to the firm’s range, according to M division boss Frank van Meel. The Porsche 718 Cayman rival is powered by a modified version of the 3.0-litre straight six used by the M3 and M4 sports saloons and produces 454bhp and 406lb ft of torque. It’ll hit 62mph from a standstill in 4.1sec, and while there’s no four-wheel-drive option, drivers can specify a manual gearbox. Happy days.

Noble M500

The incoming 550bhp replacement for the M600, which went on sale in 2009, will have a manual gearbox linked to a 3.5-litre Ford V6 powerplant with more than 600lb ft at its disposal. Now expected to be more of a match for the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Chevrolet Corvette, the car started testing at the beginning of last year. The car will take a big cut from your monthly salary for this!

Cars arriving in June 2023

Aston Martin DB11

Big updates are coming to Aston’s front-engined sports cars. The DB11 is first up, followed by the DBS and Vantage in 2024. The revamp will bring a wide-reaching chassis overhaul, powertrain improvements and – at last – a touchscreen.

Lamborghini Aventador successor

Lamborghini’s dramatic-looking supercar will continue to draw the bulk of its power from a highly strung, large-capacity V12 engine – but with a new hybrid element that, bosses suggest, will make it significantly more powerful than today’s model.

Mazda MX-30 R-EV

Revealed at the Brussels motor show, Mazda’s latest hybrid crossover marks the return of the rotary engine. It uses an 830cc petrol rotary matched with a 17.8kWh battery which drives an electric motor to power the wheels, totalling 167bhp and 191lb ft. This helps it acheive a substantially better range than its predecessor, now at over 400 miles, with charge times between 25 and 90 minutes depending on the charger. Prices start from £31,250 – matching the all-electric MX-30 – for entry-level models, and rise to £37,950 for the flagship Edition R.

Renault Austral

Primed to replace the Renault Kadjar crossover, the Austral will bring electrified powertrains with up to 196bhp, torsion-beam rear suspension and four-wheel steering on top-rung models. We expect to see the first Australs in the UK in the middle of 2023 as a rival to the Ford Kuga and Toyota RAV4.

Cars arriving in July 2023

Chevrolet Corvette

Best Dream Car of 2022, the Corvette gains a mid-engined layout for the first time. A dual-clutch automatic transmission, adaptive dampers and right-hand drive are all available for UK buyers, and a sub-£80,000 price makes the sports car an even more attractive proposition.

Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato

Like the BMW M2, the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato will also be its maker’s last pure-combustion offering. Unlike the M2, however, the Sterrato is designed to excel off road in a similar vein to the Porsche 911 Dakar. The rugged off-road supercar gains raised ground clearance, roof rails and a roof-mounted air intake, as well as a stone guard, an LED light bar and probably an adapted version of the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) driving mode system to improve its performance on loose surfaces.

Volkswagen ID 3

Upgrades to Volkswagen’s pioneering EV will streamline its look and improve the infotainment system, two and a half years after the model’s official launch. Volkswagen’s latest-generation software package will supposedly fix many criticisms of the quality of the original model and there will be more premium interior materials.

Cars arriving in August 2023

Ferrari Purosangue

It’s an SUV, Jim, but not as we know it. With a 6.5-litre V12 sending 715bhp and 528lb ft to both axles, Ferrari’s answer to the Aston DBX will make good on its claim to be a “true sports car”, covering 0-62mph in 3.3sec and 0-124mph in 10.6sec.

Jeep Avenger

Jeep’s first EV will arrive early this year as the smallest SUV it has produced. With a 54kWh battery, the Avenger can return up to 249 miles of range and charge at speeds of up to100kW. It will be available in both single- and dual-motor guise although power outputs have yet to be disclosed. The Avenger will be followed by three additional electric Jeep models set to enter Europe by 2025.

Cars arriving in September 2023

Ford Mustang

The seventh generation of the Ford Mustang could be the last, but it won’t go quietly. It remains on the platform of the previous-generation model, so there’s no electrification to be seen. Power comes from either a 2.3-litre Ecoboost or a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine, with a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford has also revealed an even more aggressive 500bhp Dark Horse performance variant, but it’s not confirmed for sale in the UK just yet.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz landed a critical first blow by getting the all-electric EQE to market almost a full year before any direct equivalent BMW. This year, it follows that with a combustion-flavoured E-Class aimed at the mainstream, offering level three autonomous driving technology and a renewed range of electrified petrol and diesel engines. Plug-in hybrid powertrains will propel high-end models, including the top AMG version, which will lose its snorting V8 in favour of a mighty electrified four-pot. Today’s acclaimed six-cylinder diesel and petrol motors will stick around, though, with efficiency and power boosts courtesy of new hybrid elements. A swansong for Mercedes’ MRA platform, the E-Class will be among the final new combustion cars to leave Stuttgart – and bosses will also be hoping it’s one of the best.

Vauxhall Corsa

Vauxhall is looking to continue the Corsa’s run as the UK’s best-selling car into 2023, giving the supermini a complete redesign and a boost to electric range. The model’s front end will receive an extensive update, gaining the firm’s Vizor front fascia, while the electric version will also be fitted with the new 55kWh battery, in line with the updated Peugeot e-208, its sibling. That’ll give the electric Corsa 248 miles of range, but a petrol option will still be available for the time being.

Cars arriving in October 2023

Fisker Ocean

The stylish Fisker Ocean made its debut in the UK at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed and it is set to take on the BMW iX3 and the Audi Q4 E-tron with an impressive range of up to 350 miles. Prices are said to start from £34,990, rising to £59,900 for the most luxurious, range-topping variant, and Fisker predicts 60,000 units will exit Magna Steyr’s Austrian factory destined for Europe.

Ford Puma ST Hybrid

Ford’s popular Puma ST will gain a bit more punch, launching the firm’s new electrified ST sub-brand. We’ve only seen test mules so far, which have suggested the model will use mild-hybrid technology rather than a plug-in powertrain.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

Nearly 600bhp from the hottest version of Hyundai’s retro EV? Sign us up. Chances are the Ioniq 5 N will share its highly strung twin-motor powertrain with the Kia EV6 GT, which will get it from 0-62mph in well under 4.0sec and make it the fastest Hyundai model built so far.

Nio ET5

Nio’s Tesla Model 3 rival will arrive in the UK with a twin-motor powertrain consisting of a 201bhp asynchronous motor at the front and a 282bhp motor at the rear. Total power output stands at 483bhp and torque at 516lb ft for a claimed 0-62mph sprint of 4.3sec. That’s not all: drivers have the choice of three battery sizes, ranging from 75kWh (342 miles) to a staggering 150kWh, with an estimated range of up to 620 miles.


The already impressive MG 4 will gain a dual-motor Triumph Edition with 442bhp on tap. It’s rumoured to be capable of 0-62mph in 3.8sec, with the top speed artificially limited to 99mph. It could be our first taste of an all-electric mega-hatchback.

Porsche Panamera

The all-new version is set to continue as a combustion alternative to the Taycan, with a subtle design refresh. Along with updated versions of today’s twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 and 4.0-litre V8 engines, featuring 48V mild-hybrid properties, the new Panamera looks set to adopt a heavily revised plug-in hybrid powertrain that is also destined for the upcoming Mk4 Cayenne SUV.

Rolls-Royce Spectre

Just as important as the Mini, its BMW Group stablemate – albeit much more exclusive and, ahem, a touch heftier – is the third electric car to enter series production in the UK: the Rolls-Royce Spectre. Tipping the scales at a hair under three tonnes but capable of matching a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 to 62mph, the 577bhp Spectre promises to be one of the most beguiling and technologically impressive cars of the modern era. It is built around the latest iteration of Rolls-Royce’s Architecture of Luxury and draws its energy from a mammoth 120kWh battery, good for a claimed 323 miles between charges. It’s also one of the most aero-efficient cars around and the stiffest car the firm has ever put into production. The most advanced Rolls-Royce since FAB 1? It should well be, given its £275,000 pre-options price.

Volkswagen ID 7

This is the German car maker’s answer to the Tesla Model 3. Previously known as the ID Aero, the saloon is set to be offered initially as a five-door liftback but an estate variant is also in the pipeline. The ID 7 will launch with a two-wheel-drive set-up before a punchier four-wheel-drive GTX model provides power levels similar to those of the Model 3, Polestar 2 and Hyundai Ioniq 6.

Volkswagen Touareg

Volkswagen’s flagship SUV will receive a round of updates, bringing styling tweaks and a new, upgraded infotainment system. Changes to the front and rear ends will refresh the BMW X5 rival’s appearance using some cues from the latest-generation Volkswagen Golf. Official details are still thin on the ground, but our spy photographs give an idea of what to expect when the model arrives later this year.

Volvo EX30

Volvo’s smallest SUV offering will be based on parent company Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture, also used by the Smart #1 and Chinese-market Zeekr 001. It will form the new entry point to Volvo’s electric line-up, sitting below the XC40 Recharge, and, according to CEO Jim Rowan, will be geared towards younger, city-based drivers. Volvo has been rather coy about the model’s design, revealing only a preview teaser image at the end of last year, but what’s clear is that the EX30 will draw heavy influence from the recently shown EX90 flagship – while undercutting its £100k price by some margin.

Cars arriving in November 2023

Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate

Hardcore variant of the brutish GT gets a power hike to rival the Ferrari 812 Competizione. The brawny two-door coupé has been previewed as the “flagship to surpass them all” with an adapted version of the model’s existing 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine, boosting power from 715bhp to 759bhp over the standard model. Just 499 will be built. 

Bentley Batur

Built to signal the end of Bentley’s famed 6.0-litre W12 engine, the ultra-limited-run Batur is said to preview the British firm’s electric future. The large, two-door coupé is based on the longer-wheelbase Bentley Continental GT under the skin, with a new, swansong W12 claimed to be the most powerful ever, producing more than 730bhp and 740lb ft. If you’re lucky, you’ll see one parked outside Harrods in the middle of 2023. 

BMW 5 Series

Whereas Mercedes has split its executive models into the forward-looking, electric EQE and the fossil-fuelled E-Class, BMW’s rival 5 Series will offer petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid and electric derivatives – all in one bodyshell. 

The pure-combustion 5 Series models (including the snarling V8-powered M5) will adopt some form of electrical assistance to meet the latest emissions standards, while the PHEV options are likely to receive bigger batteries (and thus longer electric ranges) – good news for eco-conscious suburban drivers and cash-savvy company fleet managers. 

The electric i5 will offer buyers a more conventional alternative to the EQE and the Tesla Model S. It will trade a long range for a smaller, less heavy battery – to bolster its dynamic appeal – and have 210kW rapid-charging capabilities. 

Czinger 21C 

US start-up Czinger pioneered the technique of 3D-printing car chassis back in 2015, and it’s finally coming to market in the 21C hypercar. Packing a 1223bhp electrified V8, it dispatches the 0-62mph sprint in 1.9sec and is almost 2.2sec quicker than a McLaren Senna around Laguna Seca. 

Ford E-Tourneo Custom

One of the most important launches of 2023: an electric version of the UK’s best-selling vehicle of 2021. With a range of 230 miles from a 74kWh battery, it shares the same 215bhp motor as the panel-sided E-Transit Custom but ups the ‘lifestyle’ factor with movable, reversible seats and a slick, car-like cockpit area. This or a VW ID Buzz?
