After the knock-on effect of Covid-19 and huge manufacturer supply delays, 2022 was set to be the big return for the automotive industry. However, the war in Ukraine prolonged the development of new cars further and there wasn’t as much supply as we had hoped. So, looking ahead to 2023 with a positive spin, we look at the best cars coming out this year! Some popular models will receive a facelift, brand new models will be revealed and will this be the year that electric and hybrid cars take over? UK Car Finance has put together a list of the vehicles to keep an eye out for in 2023!
What new cars are coming 2023?
When it comes to new cars released in 2023, there are so many to choose from. So, we’ve handpicked our selection of the top 10 best new cars 2023 to choose from.
- Audi A6 e-Tron
- Ford Mustang
- Ford Ranger
- Jeep Avenger
- Volkswagen ID.2
- Renault Megane E-Tech
- Polestar 3
- Peugeot 408
- BMW XM
- Aston Martin Valhalla
1. Audi A6 e-Tron
The all-new Audi A6 e-Tron will be released in Spring 2023. The new electric saloon will be sold alongside the petrol and diesel models already on offer but will be a little different. The Audi A6 e-Tron comes with a sleeker design, a roomier interior and new stylish infotainment screens. The new electric car promises 185 miles of fast charging in just 10 minutes and an electric range of 434 miles which is one of the longest electric car ranges around.
2. Ford Mustang
Fans of the Ford Mustang rejoice! There is a new model coming in late 2023 and it’s expected that ordering will be open soon in the UK. The all-new Mustang comes with a refreshed design and muscular V8 engine but with the distinct and unmistakable Mustang silhouette still present. It’s one of the best sports cars around and UK drivers can also choose from the soft-top convertible or the fastback coupe. We think the new Ford Mustang is definitely a car to watch out for in 2023.
3. Ford Ranger
It’s been a busy time for the team at Ford as they also welcome the all-new Ford Ranger in 2023. Orders for the Ranger already took place in 2022 and deliveries are expected to take place in early 2023. The latest Ranger model brings a new, bespoke exterior look and a much higher level of luxury. The Ford Ranger Raptor is the next generation 4×4 and comes with an impressive twin-turbo charged V6 EcoBoost petrol engine and an extreme “Baja” driving mode.
4. Jeep Avenger
One of our favourite cars coming in 2023 is the Jeep Avenger. The Avenger is the first all-electric Jeep and is set to be one of the best electric cars you can buy. We expect the Jeep Avenger to be a popular SUV amongst busy or adventurous families. It slides into the small SUV category but certainly packs a punch with an electric range of 342 miles in stop-start traffic and a sleek and stylish exterior.
5. Volkswagen ID.3
The Volkswagen ID.3 is not a new car and was released in 2019 but it’s getting a new and exciting facelift in 2023! The new, refreshed model is likely to be released in the spring and it’s highly anticipated. The exterior receives a new front design with a reshaped bonnet and a tweaked headlight signature. Volkswagen has quoted that the new ID.3 will be “equipped with the latest software generation, which improves system performance and is able to receive over-the-air updates”. We look forward to seeing this model this year!
6. Renault Megane E-Tech
The 2023 version of the Renault Megane waves goodbye to the internal combustion engine and hello to an electric-powered motor. The all-new Renault Megane E-Tech looks very different when compared to the other Megane models and really brings this model into the 21st century. There are two batteries to choose from; a 40kWh which provides a 186-mile range or a 60kWh battery which promises up to 292 miles per charge and both batteries come with a massive 8-year warranty.
7. Polestar 3
A new SUV rival to the Jeep Avenger is the Polestar 3. It’s the first SUV model from the fastest-growing electric car brand and it’s one of the best cars to look out for this year. You can order the Polstar 3 now and deliveries are expected in the winter. The Polestar 3 has a huge battery capacity and can provide 379 miles on a single charge. The technology used in the Polestar 3 is also really impressive and safety assistance technology is next-generation stuff.
8. Peugeot 408
For us, the Peugeot 408 is one of the best cars coming in 2023. There is a range of models to choose from and it’s available to buy now! The new Peugeot 408 is available in hybrid or petrol options which can suit a range of different drivers. The plug-in hybrid version can provide around 26 to 40 miles of all-electric driving before switching to the punch petrol engine. The new model also brings a fresh new look and improved interior technology and space.
9. BMW XM
The BMW XM is one of the most anticipated cars of the year. It’s one of the most expensive but the largest and most powerful of all the M cars ever made. The new SUX from BMW is certainly stylish and eye-catching on the road. The complex hybrid system combines is a powerful 197hp electric motor with a nippy 8-speed automatic gearbox that really packs a punch. On the inside, it has all the luxurious touchpoints that you’d expect from BMW and a set of M sport seats that even have a range of massage functions as standard!
10. Aston Martin Valhalla
Whilst it may be out of budget for many drivers, the Aston Martin Valhalla Is definitely worth mentioning. The all-new plug-in hybrid supercar is really impressive and features a V8 engine with a 150kW battery hybrid system. The 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine is the most advanced and highest-performing engine ever fitted to an Aston Martin and can soar 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds. When on the road, the Valhalla takes its driving performance to the next level and the luxurious cockpit is based on the layout of the Formula 1 car.
