The Jaguar F-Type will be eight years old in 2020, but a comprehensive overhaul for the svelte British sports car means it will feel fresh again. It gets a striking new exterior design, new interior tech and trim, and the range-topping R model will have plenty of performance courtesy of its 5-litre, 567bhp supercharged V8 engine. The only other engine option in the UK is a four-cylinder; the V6 won’t be available in the new model.
Aston Martin DBX
Aston Martin is entering uncharted ground with the new DBX, as it’s the car maker’s first ever SUV (sport utility vehicle). Despite being such a departure from the norm, the car maker says the DBX is a proper Aston at heart, thanks to its 542bhp twin-turbocharged V8 engine (the most powerful V8 in any current production Aston), claimed “sports car levels of grip and handling” and luxuriously-appointed cabin.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
Quite possibly the most divisive motor of 2020 will be the Ford Mustang Mach-E; a pure-electric SUV inspired by the legendary muscle car. While it will likely raise the hackles of many a muscle car enthusiast, the Mach-E will likely be a big hit for the Blue Oval — with an estimated maximum range of around 370 miles between charges, it should have the best range of any pure-electric car on the market right now. It also has a dashboard that owes more than a little to the Tesla, the market disruptor.

As well as being a far different beast to Audi’s e-tron (plug-in) SUVs, the e-tron GT has some impressive foundations as its pure-electric powertrain is derived from the Porsche Taycan.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
Not every electric car being launched in 2020 is a big SUV: as the Honda e shows, new zero emission superminis will be arriving on UK roads later this year. There’s more to the dinky hatchback than its retro looks and futuristic interior — Honda claims the e excels as an urban commuter car thanks to its tight turning circle, a torquey electric motor that allows the car to nip in and out of traffic, and fast charging times allowing up to 108 miles to be added to the battery in just 30 minutes. On the downside, it doesn’t have the largest range: the 36kWh battery is good for around 136 miles, apparent
