The best new cars to watch out for in 2019

Next year is being tipped as the revolution for the car industry. The first-ever 3D printed car is set to make its debut in 2019, along with plenty of other big sellers. With the best cars of 2018 in full swing and dominating the asphalt, we’re looking at the auto trends and best new cars to get you ahead of the game. Here are the vehicles to watch out for in 2019…

It's electrifying

2019 is the year of the electric car; there’s no doubt about it. Manufacturers and dealerships have been preparing for the turn towards electric vehicles for years now, especially as the UK is set to ban gas-powered cars by 2040. Some of the best cars 2018 have experienced the change already, but 2019 is when the likes of Mini, Mercedes and Porsche begin to lead the way. In the next decade, there are also said to be plans for a hybrid Ford Mustang…

Best cars 2019

The original city car, the Mini, is going green in 2019. One of the best new cars to hit the market next year is the Mini EV, based on the design of the current Mini hatchback. There’s not much else known about this latest version, the batteries and the motor, but we do expect it to be similar to the BMW’s i3. Either way, we’re going to be looking forward to a test drive…

Speaking of electric cars and auto trends, the Honda Urban EV is another hybrid to keep an eye out. The Honda has taken influence from the design of the Volkswagen Golf, but the interior is distinctly futuristic. The car will have a range of around 150 miles, and it set to dominate the car trends for the next year.

Aston Martin

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will take centre stage when it comes to racing car news. The fluidly flowing body work made from carbon fibre, the luxury leather interior and the 5.2 litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine is enough to get it to the top of our best car news. This engine generates a massive 715 horsepower, and can reach 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds. The top speed for this is a staggering 211 mph, and there’ll be no shortage of punters.

Bentley

The Bentley Continental GT is the third in the family, and continues the styling trend of the cars. However, the 6.0 litre W12 engine - with 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque - means its staying firmly near the top of our car trends list. The car is capable of 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds, boasting some decent handling to boot. As you’d expect, the interior is like something out of a Bond movie, upholstered in rich leather. The number of customisable features is also long enough to take up a few pages…

Ford Mustang Shelby

In racing car news, the GT500 is making a comeback. Forget the best cars 2018, it’s all about next year - especially with this model. The next-gen GT500 will be the most powerful Shelby Mustang ever, and that’s enough reason to get on the waiting list. This model has more than twice the horsepower of the first-ever performance model in 1967, using an insanely developed and charged 5.2 litre engine. A preview video of the model showed the wide longitudinal body strips and two lights set centrally in the grille, and more than amped up the excitement for the car. However, it’s unlikely to be sold in the UK, but rip up the racetracks in the US.

BMW

The 8-series coupe is back in our latest car trends, and it’s been a long 20 years. The BMW M850i xDrive packs a serious punch, with a twin-turbocharged 4.4 litre engine, with 530 horsepower to boot. It can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, and that’s good enough for us. The design is said to be some of the greatest work out of BMW, with the headlamps incorporating LED and laser-light technology and are the slimmest used in any BMW. Inside, the car doesn’t compromise on style, with the sports seats trimmed in the finest leather.

Mercedes

Mercedes have got a good few years ahead of them, with electric versions and other models in the bank. The Mercedes AMG GT is getting a refresh for 2019, making it roomy enough for four passengers. Add to that, the twin-turbo V8 engine will be enough to keep you busy up and down the roads. Likewise, a more powerful, hybrid version of the AMG GT is said to be in development.

Lexus UX

When it comes to auto trends, Lexus is determined to stand front and centre. The design team at Lexus are on fire at the moment, and the Lexus UX is just another example. No luxury crossover makes a better impact than this model, with a bold and edgy exterior. There are several models to choose; the UX200, UX250 and UX250h.

Volkswagen

Volkswagen are set to have a good year in 2019 when it comes to car trends. Starting with the VW Arteon ‘four door coupe’, adding style and substance to the class of 2019. The car comes powered with a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine, with 268 horsepower. Likewise, the interior and body has had an upgrade, with the wider body offering more interior space.

The VW family also get a new golf, taking a big jump in power. Not much is known as Volkswagen have gone out of their way to keep it a surprise, but it’s likely there will be a few enhances to the design.

3D Printed Car

We touched on this above, but the 3D printed car makes its entrance in 2019. This has been a long time coming, and the LSEV - produced by Polymaker and X Electric-Vehicles - is expected to cause a stir. The 3D printed car is a step in the right direction when it comes to going green, reducing the number of plastic parts from an average of 2,000 to only 57.
