All the new cars you can expect to see in Australia, in 2020!
- shares

Australia's new car market, it is fair to say, did not have a stellar year in 2019. Month after month, sales were down, with consumer confidence low and dealers struggling with significant changes to finance regulations.

For those looking to buy, however, 2019 was a strong year of exciting launches across the 60-or-so brands operating in Australia, from the powerful Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q and new-generation Kia Cerato in January to the Mercedes-AMG A35 pocket rocket and BMW 3 Series wagon towards the end of the year.

Much of the 2020 calendar remains vague at this stage, with our crystal ball still to reveal what's to come through the middle and end of the year. But, for now, we're expecting the below models to show up either as described, or simply 'at some point'.

We will, of course, update this calendar through the year as the picture becomes clearer.

ALSO: Every car leaving Australia in 2020


EDITOR'S NOTE, August 17: With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc in global markets, the below dates are as accurate as brands have been able to confirm under the circumstances.

Each expected arrival date could change without warning, but we will work to keep this list as up-to-date as possible. Indeed, we are waiting even now for word on a number of models.

NOTE: This article is being updated weekly. Reckon we've missed any new models? We might've: there's a lot to remember! Sing out in the comments below if you think of any.


Now that you know what's coming, how do you decide which car is best for you?

In terms of model and manufacturer choice, Australia has one of the biggest new-car markets in the world.

It is also one of the most sophisticated car markets in the world, with all manufacturers offering several variants of each model. At the time of writing, there are 67 manufacturers offering 205 models, divided into 23 different categories.

These categories include micro, light under $25k, light over $25k, small under $40k, small over $40k, medium under $60k, medium over $60k, large under $70k, large over $70k, Upper large under $100k, upper large over $100k, people movers under $60k, people movers over $60k, Sports cars under $80k, Sports cars over $80k, Sports Cars over $200k, light SUVs, small SUVs under $40k, small SUVs over $40k, medium SUVs under $60k, medium SUVs over $60k, large SUVs under $70k, large SUVS over $70k, upper large SUVs under $100k, upper large SUVs over $100k.

Just reading the list of new-car categories gives you an idea of how confusing it can be to select the right car for you. After all, not all buyers are checking in with CarAdvice every morning and night. Even within these categories of new cars you have the option of hatches, coupes, sedans, convertibles and station wagons.

When you have decided on the body style, you need to consider how many people you are going to be carrying on a regular basis. Does your new car need to have two, four, five, seven or even eight seats? If you need more than eight seats, you should start looking in the mini-bus people-mover category, which is a whole other world. Will your new car need to carry child seats, and how many? Does it need to have a big luggage capacity? Obviously, these factors will have a bearing on which new car suits your needs.

And all of this is before you even consider the engine size or type! Do you want your new car to be powered by a petrol or diesel engine, or are you looking for something greener like a hybrid or even electric? Where is the car going to be driven, and how many kilometres are you going to be driving each year? Will you take it off-road or even out of the city limits?
