Best new cars 2019: models worth waiting for

From an electric Mini to an all-new Land Rover Defender. The best new cars of 2019 will revolutionise the roads

James Mills Dominic Tobin Murray Scullion
Oct 31, 2018

Next year promises to be a revolution for some of the best-known cars on the road. Among the new models due to arrive in 2019 is an all-electric version of the Mini, a 21st century relaunch of the Land Rover Defender and a brand new Volkswagen Golf.

Other popular models due for replacement include the Nissan Juke, BMW 1 Series, Range Rover Evoque and Renault Clio.

But the biggest trend next year is set to be the arrival of a wave of new electric cars. As well as Mini, you’ll also see AudiMercedes, Porsche, Honda and Polestar (Volvo’s electric car brand) launching battery-powered cars, the beginning of a new dawn in driving that will only continue to expand and improve over the next handful of years.

Some of those electric cars promise sensational performance, as do new versions of the Porsche 911 and Toyota Supra.

Read on to find out whether it’s worth waiting for a new car in 2019, or looking for a great deal on a model that will soon be replaced.


Best new cars of 2019

New SUVs and crossovers 2019

2019 Audi Q4

On sale 2019 
Price from £30,000 (estimated)

What’s the Audi Q4? It’s a rival to the BMW X2. What’s that? A cross between a high-riding SUV and a low-slung coupe. Confused? Don’t worry, this is a niche that is likely to grow in popularity, as many drivers who have owned an SUV for several years look for something more stylish to replace it with. At the compact end of Audi’s SUV family, it will feature petrol and diesel engines, and a plug-in hybrid and electric model.

2019 Citroen C5 Aircross

On sale late 2018 
Price from £23,000 (estimated)

By the end of 2018, French car maker Citroen will have a rival to the hugely popular Nissan Qashqai, in the guise of the C5 Aircross. It is a large, practical five-seat family SUV that hopes to win over drivers with its overtly adventurous design. Perhaps wisely, the company is initially launching the C5 Aircross with front-wheel drive and a system called Grip Control, which helps maintain traction on slippery surfaces. A four-wheel drive model and plug-in hybrid are expected to join the range at a later date.

2019 DS 3 Crossback

On sale Spring 2019
Prices from £21,000 (estimated)

The popular DS 3 is being replaced with a crossover version that's taller than the existing car. The all-new DS 3 Crossback promises to be significantly more luxurious, and will be available with a Nappa leather interior, flush-fitting door handles that pop out when the driver approaches the car, and high-end Focal sound system. Expect to pay more for these last two features when the car goes on sale next year.

The new car retains the "shark fin" between the windows - like the old car, but comes with two rear doors as standard, giving it a much chunkier and less compact design. An electric E-Tense version will also go on sale next year.

2019 Honda CR-V hybrid

On sale 2019 
Price from £30,000 (estimated)

The new Honda CR-V actually arrived in the UK this autumn. It has a 1.5-litre petrol engine and the option of seven, as well as five, seats. However, the model already setting tongues wagging is this hybrid version, comprising of a 2.0-litre petrol engine, two electric motors and a single fixed gear ratio, a system Honda calls Intelligent Multi Mode Drive (i-MMD).

This new model will arrive in 2019 with a job on its hands, because there’ll be no diesel-powered CR-V. The efficient new hybrid version is intended to replace it. With sales of new diesel cars plunging, it’s perhaps not such a tall order – as long as Honda gets the new model’s pricing right. What won’t help is that there will be no seven-seat option with the hybrid model.

2019 Land Rover Defender

On sale 2019 
Price from £30,000 (estimated)

Replacing the original Defender with an all-new model fit for the 21st century has been no easy task. The DC100 concept car, above, was unveiled in 2011 and mixed reactions sent Land Rover back to the drawing board. It’s now been two years since production of the old car ceased and potential rivals haven't been slow in coming forward, including a new Jeep Wrangler and a privately-funded start-up company that's aiming to produce the modern equivalent of a Defender.

So, in 2019, expect the new Defender to be revealed. Rumours are that it will be even better off-road than before and have a close family resemblance to Range Rover models.

2019 Mercedes GLE

On sale January/February 2019 
Price from £55,000 (estimated)

Mercedes has put as much water as possible between this all-new GLE and the mediocre predecessor that it replaces. The new car looks considerably more modern and comes with the option of some cutting edge technology, including air suspension linked to a camera that adjusts each wheel individually to pre-empt potholes and bumps on the road ahead, which can also lean into corners like a tilting train. A glossy widescreen dashboard comes as standard and there's the option of seven seats for the first time.

2019 Nissan Juke

On sale March 2019 (estimated) 
Price from £15,750 (estimated)

With the mechanical parts from the latest Nissan Micra - a good car - Nissan is aiming to bring the Juke back up to date, with more space, comfort and equipment to match the increasingly tough competition.

Expect the individual design to continue: the current car continues to be a hit for Nissan, even though it's almost a decade old. You can read more about the car in our 2019 Nissan Juke guide.

2019 Seat Tarraco

On sale December 2018
Price from £28,000 (estimated)

Seat's seven-seat SUV could provide a new level of luxury and technology when it goes on sale at the end of this year. It's tipped to be fitted with a fully digital dashboard (including the dials behind the steering wheel) as standard, and is said to offer class-leading quality. Combined with the promise of nimble and comfortable performance, it could be a compelling alternative to the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, Skoda Kodiaq, and even the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

However, it remains to be seen whether the claims stack up. The first cars are expected in Britain at the beginning of 2019.

2019 Skoda Vision X

On sale 2019 
Price from £16,000 (estimated)

Crossover cars, which combine the mechanical parts of a small hatchback with the taller shape of an off-road car, are becoming more fashionable. In recent months we’ve had the Seat Arona, Citroen C3 Aircross and Kia Stonic, and next year, we’ll have the Skoda Vision X.

Smaller than the Karoq crossover, the Vision X is intended to look more stylish than both. The concept had a hybrid system so we expect that to appear in the production model, along with a choice of petrol and diesel engines.
Ask about reserving a 2019 Skoda Vision X


2019 Suzuki Jimny

On sale 2019 
Price from £13,000 (estimated)

Anyone who has hired a Jimny on their holiday will know just how tough and capable the little off-roader is, so it’s good news that as it comes to the end of its long, 21-year life, there’s an all-new one lined up for 2019.

Suzuki has sensibly chosen to stick with the rugged, no-nonsense formula that stood the old car in such good stead. There’s little news on engines but the new Suzuki Ignis, with its hybrid system and four-wheel drive suggests there could be something similar in the wings for the new Jimny.

2019 Renault Kadjar

On sale First half 2019 (estimated)
Price from £22,000 (estimated)

This may look like the outgoing Kadjar, but we promise, this is the new model (we double checked). Coming to the UK early-mid 2019, the new Kadjar will go toe to toe with the Peugeot 5008, Skoda Kodiaq, and Nissan X-Trail.

As well as some minor exterior and interior changes, there are new engines on offer for this model, including a punchy 1.3-litre petrol engine in 138 or 157bhp tune. There’s a diesel too - a 1.6-litre with 113 or 148bhp.
Ask about reserving a 2019 Renault Kadjar

2019 Toyota RAV4

On sale Early 2019 (estimated)
Price from £28,000 (estimated)

Like the Renault Kadjar above, the RAV4 will square up against stiff competition in the quite-large SUV sector.

The Rav looks set to be much better off-road than most other offerings in this sector though. Reduced overhangs and a slightly higher ride height than the outgoing model will make sure of that. We should also mention that it’s available as a hybrid.
Ask about reserving a 2019 Toyota RAV4

2019 Volkswagen T-Cross

On sale Early 2019
Price from £16,500 (estimated)

Like the Skoda Vison X further up this list, the T-Cross is a tiddly SUV and will go up against an ever burgeoning small SUV/Crossover segment.

It’s not necessarily sporty, but it is utilitarian, boasting a 385-litre boot. And while the seating position is set high, it won't be available with four-wheel-drive.

More SUVs and crossovers coming in 2019

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

On sale 2019 Price from £32,000 (estimated)
‘If it ’aint broke, don't fix it’ promises to be Land Rover’s approach to the second-generation Range Rover Evoque, on sale next year. It's expected to retain the shape of the current model, with a modified nose that looks more like the larger Range Rover Velar. Beyond further styling tweaks at the rear, and a new dual-screen dashboard, again similar to the Velar, that’s about it in terms of design.

2019 Mercedes GLA

On sale 2019 Price from £25,000
Part hatchback, part SUV, the GLA is Mercedes’ smallest high-riding family car, and is based on its big-selling A-Class hatchback. A new model is due to be revealed next year.

2019 Mercedes GLB

On sale 2019 Price from £30,000
Mercedes is likely to run out of letters from the alphabet at the rate it’s adding new models to its range. The next arrival to tread new ground is the GLB, which will be sized and priced between the GLA and GLC, and should be priced from around £30,000, making it a posh alternative to a Nissan Qashqai. It will use Mercedes’ new generation of cleaner diesel engine, and the design of the bodywork is said to have been inspired by the chunky G Wagon.


New small cars 2019

2019 Cupra Ibiza

On sale summer 2019 
Price from £20,000 (estimated)

Seat is a brand known for its sporty Cupra cars but it's decided to discard that reputation and rebadge its most powerful cars under the sole Cupra name.

One of the first to appear next year will be a high-performance version of the small Ibiza. The standard car is good to drive, thanks to stable and nimble cornering. Combined with a powerful 200hp engine, it's likely to make some hot hatchback buyers think twice about the new Ford Fiesta ST.

More small cars coming in 2019

2019 Peugeot 208

On sale summer 2019 Price from £14,000 (estimated)
In 2018, small cars got a lot better. The Seat Ibiza, Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo brought new standards of comfort, quietness, quality and technology to the segment, while maintaining relatively affordable prices. Could 2019 see a similar leap forward? That depends on the standard of the new Peugeot 208, as well as the Renault Clio and Vauxhall Corsa below.

2019 Renault Clio

On sale 2019 Price from £13,500 (estimated)
Renault is putting the Va va voom back into its Clio, launching a new generation model in 2019. The French car maker is keeping tight-lipped about the successor, but rumours suggest it will be lighter, more economical, have a much more upmarket interior – to compete with cars like the Mini hatchback – and a certain degree of technology to allow for semi-autonomous driving capability.

2019 Vauxhall Corsa

On sale 2019 Price from £10,000 (estimated)
The Corsa is an important car for Vauxhall – not historically, but for its future survival. The affordable hatchback has been sliding down the UK’s sales charts in an alarming fashion, losing huge ground to the Ford Fiesta and suggesting that the outgoing model simply wasn’t good enough in today’s competitive car market. Now owned by the Peugeot-Citroen group, it will get new underpinnings, new engines – including an electric version - and, well, new everything, frankly. If that doesn’t stop the rot, nothing will.


New family cars 2019

2019 BMW 3 Series

On sale March 9, 2019
Price from £33,610

When you make one of the world's best medium-sized cars, there's no shame in introducing a new model that offers more of the same. So next year's brand new BMW 3 Series has the brand's familiar design, a similar interior layout and the same promise of a comfortable ride combined with sporty and nimble performance.

It's slightly larger, bringing more interior space, and the technology has, naturally, been upgraded. For more information, read our guide to the 2019 BMW 3 Series.

2019 Mazda 3

On sale 2019
Price from £20,500 (estimate)

When Mazda pulled back the covers from its Kai concept car, at last autumn’s Tokyo motor show, you could almost see the surge of car designers from rival car companies rushing across the halls to get a better look. It was a particularly good-looking hatchback.

The production model is said to remain faithful to the Kai concept, and it will use Mazda’s new-fangled internal combustion engine, called SkyActiv-X. It is capable of working like a petrol motor or a diesel, with spark plugs for petrol engine-style combustion, and the ability to switch to diesel-style compression ignition, too. The idea is to offer the economy of a diesel with the smooth nature and lower emissions of a petrol.

2019 Mercedes B-Class

On sale December 2018 
Price from £23,000 (estimated)

The people carrier, or multi-purpose vehicle, is clinging on for dear life, as drivers flock to SUVs. That’s a shame, because when you ignore image for a moment, people carriers make better family cars and are mostly more affordable to buy and run.

Mercedes is sticking it out, and its replacement for the B-Class will go on sale at the end of this year, with the first deliveries arriving in February. It's more sophisticated than ever, with Mercedes' double-widescreen dashboard and more space. Mercedes claims that it shold feel sporty to drive, despite the tall shape: the driver sits 9cm higher than in the company's new A-Class.

2019 Peugeot 508 SW

On sale January 2019 
Price from £27,000 (estimated)

Ooh La La - Peugeot’s next large estate car is a bit of a looker. The new 508 SW, which goes on sale in January, trades some of the practicality of the model it succeeds (the 530-litre boot has lost 30 litres) but most buyers are unlikely to care when the car looks so much more arresting.

It’s part of Peugeot’s attempt to shift its image upmarket a notch or two, and the rest of the cabin is more stylish and upmarket than Peugeots of old. Petrol and diesel models will go on sale first, and a plug-in hybrid – like the VW Passat GTE - will be added in the autumn.

2019 Toyota Corolla

On sale spring 2019 
Price from £20,000 (estimated)

Slowly but surely, Toyota is shifting its cars on the internationally recognised official excitement scale (okay, we made that up) from ‘Watching paint dry’ to ‘Stepping onto the dancefloor’.

It was unveiled earlier this year as the new Auris but will actually revert to the Corolla name – nobody knew what an Auris was – and looks much more interesting, both outside and inside the family hatchback. The car will drop diesel power, instead offering petrol or petrol-electric hybrid only when it goes on sale early next year.

2019 Toyota Camry

On sale summer 2019 
Price from £26,000 (estimated)

Another blast from the past in the Toyota stable is the Camry, a name that hasn’t been used in Britain’s Toyota showrooms for nearly 15 years. 

The Camry is coming back to replace the slightly old-hat Toyota Avensis. So expect massive discounts on them soon enough. But back to the Camry. This time around it'll be a hybrid, with a 2.5-litre petrol engine being supplemented by an electric motor.

More family cars coming in 2019

2019 BMW 1 Series

On sale 2019  Price from £23,000 (estimate)
BMW has built its reputation on its claim that it builds the ‘ultimate driving machine’, a hint at the fact that unlike many rival cars, its models drive the back wheels, to ensure a more exciting experience for drivers. That’s all set to change for the next 1-series, which is to be built on a front-wheel drive platform, shared with the Mini. Four-wheel drive will be offered with sporty models. The new generation 1 is expected to be a much more practical and spacious family car, which will please many owners of the past two generations of BMW’s entry-level model.

2019 Audi A3

On sale winter 2019 Price from £23,000 (estimate)
Will the new generation of Audi’s A3 make it into UK showrooms by the end of 2019? The German company isn’t saying, but development of the big-selling model is nearing completion – but politics and logistics mean Audi must wait for sister company Volkswagen to launch its new Golf first.

2019 Seat Leon

On sale 2019 Price from £13,500 (estimated)
It’s no secret in the car industry that without killer design and the latest tech you may as well pack up and go home. Seat’s bosses say the next Leon will take a big leap forward, with more daring styling and a world-class touchscreen software system. We’ll see…

2019 Volkswagen Golf

On sale summer 2019 Price from £18,000 (estimated)
It’s the bread and butter car for Volkswagen, which means no expense will be spared when launching the next Golf, in June. The changes Golf owners will notice most are an all-digital dashboard – say goodbye to analogue dials and most of the switches and buttons – and a new level of technology that permits a greater degree of self-driving capability.

2019 Volvo V40

On sale autumn 2019 Price from £18,000 (estimated)
You don’t have to visit a Volvo showroom to appreciate that the Swedish car maker is on a roll; every time one of its new models passes you by, it leaves a good impression. To date, however, the company has been busily replacing its SUVs and large cars. Now it’s the turn of the compact V40, the VW Golf rival. It shares the same platform as the acclaimed XC40 SUV, which gets it off to a good start, and should be in showrooms by late 2019.


New electric cars 2019

2019 Aston Martin RapidE

On sale 2019 
Price from £190,000 (estimated)

Aston Martin’s first electric car is being built around its oldest model, the Rapide. That may seem odd, but the company says that it’s a sensible move, given that it knows what it’s working with inside out. The prototype car is pictured above.

The target is for a four-door, four-seat luxury car than can travel around 200 miles on a single charge and turn heads wherever it stops to charge its batteries. However, only 155 will be built, and they won’t come cheap – expect a price of just under £200,000.


2019 Audi e-tron

On sale early 2019 
Price from £70,805

Drivers in the UK can reserve their place in the queue for Audi’s first mainstream electric car, the e-tron. Audi dealers are accepting (refundable) £1000 deposits for the electric SUV that’s about the size of a Q5. Its batteries offer a driving range of around 250 miles. Performance is brisk for an SUV, with acceleration from 0-62mph taking less than six seconds, but it's a bit slower than electric rivals in this price range including the acclaimed Jaguar I-Pace, impressive Tesla Model X, and forthcoming Mercedes EQC.

The car is being built now, at a new factory in Brussels, which is said to be CO2-neutral.

2019 BMW iX3

On sale late 2019 
Price from £60,000 (estimated)

BMW has dabbled with electric cars already, namely the i3. Now it is forging into more mainstream territory, with an electric SUV called the iX3. Drivers may be treated to a view of the production model next year, but it won’t reach UK showrooms until 2020. The German car maker says it will match competitors’ cars, like the Jaguar I-Pace, with a driving range of around 250 miles before a recharge is required, and with the equivalent of 270bhp it will zip along nicely.

2019 Mini EV

On sale 2019 
Price from £35,000 (estimated)

Much has been made of the new electric Mini, which will be built at the company’s Oxford factory. And it’s fitting that the original city car should now be going green with the arrival of the all-electric Mini EV in 2019. Not much is known about the batteries and motor but expect them to be similar to the system in BMW's i3 (Mini is owned by BMW), giving the new car a range of around 190 miles. 

The car is based on the design of the current Mini Hatchback, so it's likely to look similar to the popular small car. However, it is likely to include some design features, including a distinctive grille, from the Mini electric concept car that was unveiled last year.

2019 Honda Urban EV

On sale 2019 
Price from £20,000 (estimated)

The image above is Honda’s vision for its new compact electric car, the Urban EV. The influence of the very first Volkswagen Golf is clear in the car’s round headlights, slim pillars either side of the windscreen and short overhangs beyond the wheels at the front and back of the car. As it's shorter than the Honda Jazz, it should be a perfect city car. It's not known whether the rear-hinged doors will make it into production.

In keeping with its advanced electric powertrain (it will have a range of around 150 miles), the interior of the Urban EV is distinctly futuristic.

2019 Mercedes EQC

On sale summer 2019 
Price from £65,000 (estimated)

EQ is Mercedes’ name for its new range of electric cars. The first to be revealed is the EQC, which is a large, expensive SUV – unsurprisingly, given the global demand for such cars.

The five seat model is powered by an 80kWh battery, giving an output of 400bhp and the potential for a 250-mile driving range. A clever touch is that the navigation can account for which chargers can give a faster battery charge; if only it knew which units were working properly...

2019 Mercedes-Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury EV

On sale 2019 
Price from £200,000 (estimate)

Mercedes' Maybach brand is on a mission to satisfy the extravagant demands of China’s elite – some of the wealthiest drivers in the world. They want luxurious SUVs that tower over all other cars, opulent interiors - with china sets for brewing leaf-tea - and silent-running electric propulsion to meet stringent Chinese emissions standards. The wincingly-named Maybach Vision Ultimate should offer all this, and more, if it goes on sale at the end of 2019.


2019 Porsche Taycan

On sale 2019
Price from £100,000 (estimate)

Porsche has always embraced new technology. Think of the 959 supercar, from the mid-80s. Compared with the Ferrari F40, its direct competitor, the Porsche was as sophisticated as the Starship Enterprise. Now the German car company is embracing the rise of the electric car, and its first model will be the new Taycan. It promises a great deal: working with an 800 volt system, it will be capable of a 200 mile charge in as little as 15 minutes, and has a total range of about 310 miles – still short of a Tesla Model S P100D.


2019 Tesla Model 3

On sale 2019
Price from £40,000 (estimate)

Few imagined American drivers could be weaned off a diet of cheap petrol, but Elon Musk has proved the doubters wrong. In August, the new Tesla Model 3 was the fifth best-selling car in the US, and comfortably the most expensive car in the top 10 list. Late next year, the BMW 3 Series-size electric family car will go on sale in the UK. By then, much reported production hold-ups and quality control issues will hopefully be a thing of the past, and Britain’s electric car enthusiasts can enjoy a relatively affordable model with a driving range of 220 miles for the entry-level version.

2019 Bentley EV

On sale 2019-2020 Price from £170,000 (estimated)
Bentley is turning its back on big V12 and V8 engines and working on its first electric car. The company is using sister brand Porsche’s new Taycan as a foundation for its luxury electric model, and rumours suggest it will be a four-door coupe.


New sports cars 2019

2019 Aston Martin DBX / Varekai

On sale 2019
Price from £150,000 (estimate)

Is it a sports car, or is Aston Martin’s new Varekai an SUV? With an Aston Martin badge on the bonnet, you’d hope it would be the former. What was introduced as a concept car (above) with the DBX name is tipped to become the Varekai, when it goes on sale at the end of this year. It’s a five-door coupe with a high stance, and V8 turbo engines are likely to be used initially, with a hybrid model to join the range later. It will be built in Wales.


2019 Audi A9

On sale 2019 
Price from £90,000 (estimate)

Audi’s luxury coupe has been a long time in the making. Back in 2014, the company was parading a concept – the Prologue (above) - for the A9 on Rodeo Drive, vying for attention with £100,000 handbags and diamond-studded Rolexes. Next year, it will finally hit the road, with a V8, bi-turbo petrol engine and four-wheel drive.


2019 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

On sale winter 2018 
Price from £80,000 (estimate)

The first BMW 8 Series will arrive on British roads at the end of the year, promising Porsche 911 performance for a lower price. Being the budget option isn't really familiar territory for BMW, although with a price of £80,000 it's all relative. The car will be offered with a choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, and, ultimately, a hot M8 version.

2019 BMW Z4

On sale 2019
Price from £30,000 (estimate)

The new Z4 may not be BMW’s finest looking roadster, but most sports car drivers will simply be glad to have it on the market and available to choose from. It uses a fabric folding roof, and the Porsche Boxster rival is claimed to be much better to drive than before; BMW wanted to match the Boxster for thrills and spills.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door

On sale 2019
Price from £100,000 (estimate)

We’re not quite sure where the new, uninspiringly named GT 4-door, fits within the Mercedes-AMG range. It’s hard to see much difference between it and a CLS 63, E 63 and S 63, but the German company is confident there’s a niche that needs filling. Based on the S-Class limo, it’s a luxurious cruiser with the beating heart of a bruiser. It reaches showrooms by the Spring.


2019 Mercedes-AMG Project One

On sale 2019
Price from £2,000,000 (estimate)

Is this the car that will topple the Bugatti Chiron as the fastest production car on the planet? The £2 million supercar packs a 1.6-litre, turbocharged V6 engine from a Formula One racing machine that will rev to 11,000rpm and deliver more than 1000bhp. Despite its eye-watering price, all 275 are said to be more than spoken for, such is the hype surrounding this F1 car for the road.


2019 Polestar 1

On sale 2019
Price from £120,000 (estimate)

If you visited the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, you might have spotted the Polestar 1 zipping up the hill. The high performance hybrid car is the first model from Polestar, a Volvo spin-off, and is a four seat GT that boasts nearly 600bhp and features carbon fibre bodywork. Only 500 will be made each year, but quite how many British drivers will be prepared to pay a costly subscription for what is a four-cylinder car remains to be seen.

Price from £120,000 (estimate)

The 911 is not just another new Porsche, it is Porsche. The car that has come to define the German sports car maker gets a substantial overhaul next year, going on sale in the summer. The big news is that half way through its lifespan, in around 2022, a new plug-in hybrid model will be introduced. Rumours circulate that a pure electric model could be in the pipeline too.

The Supra is back – well, nearly. Next Spring, a new Supra goes into production, following a partnership between BMW and Toyota that led to the two co-developing the Z4 and Supra. While the former is a roadster, the Japanese machine will be a coupe, weigh about 1500kg and use a 350bhp turbocharged straight-six-cylinder engine to drive the rear wheels. The company promises that, like its GT86 sibling, it will be fun to drive at road speeds. It won't be quite as garish as the car above, which is the racing version.
