South African motoring enthusiasts can expect an absolute bumper year for new cars coming to South Africa in 2020. Whether it be a face-lift, a new variant, or an all-new model, there are some fantastic vehicles on the way.
The vehicles expected to hit our shores over the course of the this year, includes best-sellers like the Toyota Corolla and the ever popular crowd-pleaser – the Golf 8.
All the major German marks will launch new vehicles. Audi has promised at least three new ‘models’ and Porsche also has a cracker sedan up their sleeve for 2020.
Here’s a look at some of the best new cars coming to South Africa in 2020:
From every angle, the new Corolla sedan looks lower and leaner, tauter and tighter, Toyota said of its best-selling vehicles in South Africa. “Powerful fender flares and generously curved fender top surfaces accent its sculpted, athletic core.”
The Toyota Corolla Quest will arrive in the first quarter of 2020. The Toyota Corolla Sedan will launch in the second quarter of the year.
The Golf 8 will launch in SA in the 4th quarter and will see a major shift towards digital. “Its digital interior enables a new dimension of intuitive operation. Speeds of up to 210 km/h are possible with assisted driving,” VW said.
The Golf 8 GTI will be the first derivative introduced in South Africa. Other Golf 8 engines options will follow after. It is expected to be exclusively sold with a DSG transmission in South Africa.
Land Rover Defender
With a lot of BUZZ, the new Land Rover Defender will arrive in South Africa in the second quarter of 2020. The long-wheelbase Defender 110 will launch first, followed by the short-wheelbase Defender 90 in the third quarter.
Another exciting model coming to South Africa in 2020 is the battery-powered crossover Audi e-tron due to hit showrooms in the 4th quarter.
Manufactured by German automobile powerhouse Porsche, the Taycan is an all-electric super sedan. And with TOP GEAR scoring the Taycan a thumbs-up 4 out of 5 stars, we can’t wait for Porsche’s latest offering to arrive in South Africa in the second half of 2020.
The all-new Clio 5 will feature an E-Tech hybrid engine and arrives in April 2020.
