For November, only premium brands have prepared their new cars in 2020. Several high-end models are expected to be released this month, although there will be offers from budget car manufacturers. In November, the trend towards large-scale hybridization of cars will continue.
Alfa romeo tonale
Alfa Romeo in 2018 announced a large-scale revision of plans for its own development. The Italian concern then announced its intention to increase the annual sales volume to 400 thousand cars. And the Tonale crossover is expected to help Alfa Romeo achieve such results. This is one of the first new cars in 2020, which will appear in November, built on the basis of the Jeep SUV platform. Alfa Romeo Tonale is distinguished by its compact size, which makes the Italian crossover relatively affordable. Its main competitor will be the BMW X1.
Alfa Romeo will try plug-in hybrid technology on a production vehicle for the first time in its history at Tonale. The new crossover, both externally and in terms of equipment, resembles the "senior" Stelvio. In particular, from the latter Tonale will borrow LED optics and 21-inch wheels.
During 2020, Alpina will launch several of its own models based on BMW vehicles. At the same time, as before, the first brand intends to bring “charged” modifications of the X7 SUV to the market before the Bavarian concern. It is reported that this new car in 2020 will receive a proprietary aerodynamic body kit from Alpina and multi-spoke wheels. The company's engineers will rework the standard BMW X7 suspension, which will provide a more comfortable ride, including off-road.
The new Alpina XB7 will be equipped with a 4, 4-liter twin-turbo engine, the maximum output of which will be increased to 600 hp. This engine of similar performance is now installed on the BMW X7 M50i. It is noteworthy that the same engine is found on the Alpina B5. The company will later release a diesel version of the XD7 SUV, which engineers have already begun developing.
The British concern intends to "fill up" the world market with its new products in 2020. Each of the future sports cars is, in fact, a modified version of existing models. This also applies to the McLaren 750LT. The new car, set for the end of 2020, is a modified version of the 600LT. Officially, the technical characteristics of this new item have not been announced. But, as expected, McLaren will significantly increase the performance of the installed motor. At the same time, engineers are working to reduce the weight of the supercar.
While the British novelty is being tested on the track at the Nurburgring. At the moment, the car is devoid of a branded rear spoiler. The upcoming McLaren 750LT is also expected to feature original tailpipes located at the top of the rear bumper. The current 600LT has a similar arrangement of pipes. Therefore, it is likely that a similar option will be offered with the new 750LT.
The Mercedes-Benz company plans to gradually introduce its electric cars to the world market. An entry-level electrified model is slated for November 2020, which will be styled in the GLA crossover rather than the A-Class hatchback. This solution will allow the manufacturer to place batteries under the rear row seats without reducing the amount of free space inside the passenger compartment.
Specifications for the Mercedes-Benz EQA were not disclosed. It is only known that the built-in battery provides a cruising range of 400 kilometers. BMW i3 was chosen as the main competitor of the German novelty, which by that time may disappear from the model range of the Bavarian brand.
MG HS PHEV
About a year ago, MG introduced its version of the popular Chevrolet Trailblazer crossover to the Chinese market. But given the fact that even in the PRC, a large-scale campaign is being carried out to transfer the population to environmentally friendly modes of transport, the appearance of a hybrid crossover was quite expected. The HS model is expected to help the brand gain a foothold in the European market. The new crossover is equipped with a hybrid installation with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine at the base, which produces about 166 hp. useful power. This unit is combined with a 100-horsepower electric motor and a 10-speed automatic transmission developed by General Motors. According to preliminary information, the MG HS takes about 5.8 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h. The built-in battery provides a cruising range of 76 kilometers.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
In November 2020, Mitsubishi will present the updated mid-size crossover Eclipse Cross. Restyling of the Japanese model was carried out off schedule. The decision to upgrade early is due to the fact that Mitsubishi wants to split its crossovers. The updated ASX is shorter and the Outlander is larger. Thanks to this, the Eclipse Cross will occupy exactly an intermediate position in the Mitsubishi crossover lineup. The technical characteristics of the new SUV are also not reported. It is expected that the car's engine range will be expanded with two hybrid units, one of which will come with a plug-in.
Porsche concludes 2020 with a new version of the Panamera family station wagon. The new German model will be redesigned in the style of the recently launched 911 sports car. In this regard, redesigned lights with an LED strip in the center and a bumper can be expected on the rear of the body. At the front, the Panamera will have a new grille, behind which engineers will hide the radars and cameras that make up the semi-autonomous control system. The German station wagon will receive engines that are combined with 48-volt on-board electronics and a starter-generator. This equipment is combined with a 2.9-liter engine. According to preliminary information, in 2021, the Porsche Panamera will enter the market with a full hybrid setup, complemented by a plug-in.
