ALA Gap Insurance

Toyota Yaris

Toyota Yaris

The fourth generation of Toyota’s Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo rival sits on new underpinnings which are both lighter and stiffer than before – something which should lead to sharper handling – and features sporty styling in a bid to attract youthful buyers. Engine options include a 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre hybrid. Read more

Peugeot 2008

Peugeot 2008

Peugeot has been on a roll lately, transforming its SUV line-up into tech-heavy models with futuristic looks. And following on from the 3008 and 5008, the latest model to get this treatment is the smaller 2008. As well as its bold new look, the new 2008 is available with electric power for the first time, with this e-2008 variant able to cover 193 miles between charges. Conventional petrol and diesel engines are also offered. Read more

Vauxhall Mokka X

Vauxhall Mokka X

With styling inspired by 2018’s GT X Experimental concept car, the next Mokka X will be available in fully electric form as well as with conventional petrol engines. When bought as the former, it will be capable of travelling at least 218 miles between charges. It will also feature a high-tech interior. Read more

Nissan Qashqai

Nissan Qashqai

One of Britain’s favourite SUVs will be entering its third generation in 2020, and it’s set for a radical overhaul. With looks inspired by this year’s IMQ concept car, the new Qashqai will be available as both a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid, as well as with conventional petrol and diesel engines. It will also offer more passenger and boot space than today’s car. Read more

Fiat 500e

Fiat 500e

With a range of up to 140 miles between charges, the upcoming Fiat 500e electric car will compete with the likes of the Honda E and Mini Electric. It sits on all-new underpinnings, and is likely to cost significantly more than today’s petrol-engined 500 – which will be sold alongside it for a time. A hot Abarth version of the 500e is likely, too. Read more

Audi A3 Sportback

Audi A3 Sportback

The new A3 will be larger in all dimensions and far more tech-heavy than today’s family hatchback. That means better space inside for passengers and luggage, and the latest in connected services and infotainment. And remember, the A3 has strong pedigree, with the outgoing version a former What Car? Car of the Year and our reigning Used Car of the Year. Read more

Jaguar XJ

Jaguar XJ

Jaguar’s luxury saloon is going electric, and will be able to cover at least 300 miles between charges. It will be built on all-new underpinnings, and will feature far more radical styling than today’s car – indeed, it will take the form of a five-door hatchback rather than a traditional four-door saloon. Read more

BMW 4 Series

BMW 4 Series

The next version of BMW’s Audi A5 rival is intended to be ‘more emotional and dynamic’ than today’s car – which goes some way to explaining its huge front grille. It will use engines borrowed from the 3 Series – our current executive car champion – including a plug-in hybrid version. A convertible and four-door Gran Coupé model will arrive later. Read more

Land Rover Defender

Land Rover Defender

Perhaps the best known off-roader in existence, the Land Rover Defender has been reborn as a thoroughly modern SUV which isn’t only at home in the rough stuff. It’s available in multiple sizes, has room for up to seven people inside and can even be ordered with a tent on its roof. Read more

Volkswagen ID 3

Volkswagen ID 3

The ID 3 is a big leap forward for Volkswagen: not only is it the first VW that was designed from the ground up to be an electric car, but it’s the first in a new family of ID vehicles which will eventually encompass everything from city cars to SUVs. It can travel for up to 342 miles between charges, and should cost from less than £29,000. Read more

Mercedes C-Class

Mercedes C-Class

Mercedes will renew its fight against the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series executive saloons in 2020 with an all-new C-Class. Buyers will be able to choose from multiple hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, while a new adaptive suspension system has been designed to set new standards for ride comfort. Read more

Alfa Romeo Tonale

Alfa Romeo Tonale

If you want to match hybrid tech with Italian style, the Alfa Romeo Tonale could be your perfect next car. It’s a family SUV designed to sit below the existing Stelvio, and will rival both the Volvo XC40 and Range Rover Evoque. Expect at least 30 miles of electric range, and a price tag of around £30,000.
