10 Best New Models for 2020

The 2020 model year is bringing us almost 50 all-new and redesigned cars to Canadian new car, truck and SUV buyers. Alphabetically, here’s a list of the top 10 worth knowing about, talking about and maybe even buying.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette

With its engine finally in the middle, the new, rear-wheel-drive Corvette 2-seater brings a supercar to the masses. The new Corvette continues to use a naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8. Revamped for 2020, it makes 490 horsepower or 495 with the performance exhaust. But a well-appointed modern interior and comfortable highway ride lend it to be a great GT car as well. And yes, it will fit golf clubs in the trunk.

 

2020 Hyundai Palisade

Attack of the Clones, but this time it’s a good thing. Sharing much of the also-new-for-2020 Kia Telluride’s architecture and luxury at an incredible value, the first-ever Hyundai Palisade is a midsize 3-row SUV offered in 7- and 8-passenger configurations. Pitched against heavyweights like the Honda Pilot and VW Atlas plus all-new renditions of the Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander, the 2020 Palisade is a capable adversary.

 

2020 Hyundai Venue

Joining the existing Hyundai Kona subcompact SUV, “Unapologetically small, agile but not fragile,” is how the South Korean automaker describes its new Venue 5-passenger, 4-door, subcompact SUV. If you don’t mind the lack of all-wheel drive, the front-drive-only Venue is pretty impressive in its own right, offering a compelling combination of SUV-style, plus features, value and surprisingly enjoyable driving manners.

 

2020 Jeep Gladiator

Canadians love Jeeps. Canadians love pickup trucks. So why not have both in one vehicle? The long-awaited, 4-door, 5-passenger, four-wheel-drive Jeep Gladiator mid-size pickup truck boasts dual-purpose credentials. It’s a tough work truck that comes with convertible soft-top and hardtop options. The doors come off, and the windshield folds forward for a complete open-air driving experience expected in a Jeep. Best of both worlds? It just might be.

 

2020 Kia Telluride

Want one of the best bangs for your buck in the car (or SUV) world? The all-wheel-drive Telluride gives you a luxury-like interior and features at pricing on par with other mainstream 3-row, mid-size SUVs. The big Kia SUV can seat up to eight when the captain’s chairs of the seven-seat model are replaced by a 3-seat middle bench. As you’d expect of a flagship SUV, the Telluride is packed with technology.

 

2020 Porsche 911

The redesigned Porsche 911 2+2 sports car is the latest iteration of an automotive legend that needs no introduction. As predicted, the highly anticipated 8th-generation sports car didn’t depart far from the iconic shape that has defined the rear-engine vehicle since its debut in 1963. In essence, hardly a passerby will mistake the new coupe for anything but a 911.

 

2020 Porsche Taycan

Porsche’s first electric car takes dead aim at Tesla. The 4-door, 4-passenger Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S – its two launch trim levels – boast technical innovation and performance that vault them to the top of the performance segment. Eye-catching and ultramodern, the Taycan embodies Porsche’s move towards a future where combustion-free driving is enjoyable, engaging, and exhilarating. The range-topping Turbo S boasts an electrifying 750 horsepower.

 

2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan

When the world’s best-selling car of all time undergoes a redesign, it’s a big deal. First, Toyota launched an all-new 2019 Corolla Hatchback, and now Toyota has migrated the Corolla sedan to a slightly longer version of the hatch’s platform. Value and reliability remain hallmarks, but the 5-passenger, front-wheel-drive Corolla sedan is now far more stylish inside and out. And if the hatchback styling of the Toyota Prius is not for you, the more traditional Corolla sedan now offers a gas-electric hybrid powertrain as well.

 

2020 Toyota Highlander

Toyota's tried and true 3-row, up to 8-passenger mid-size Highlander SUV gets a refresh this year, taking many cues from its recently redesigned — and smaller — RAV4 brother. The new Highlander is slightly larger than the previous model, allowing for great flexibility and comfort for both second- and third-row passengers. With a hybrid model delivering an estimated combined 6.7 litres-per-100 kilometres, this all-wheel-drive family hauler is ready for whatever and life throws at you.

 

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

Do you like SUVs? Do you like coupe styling? Luckily for you, Volkswagen has your answer with the 5-passenger, all-wheel-drive Atlas Cross Sport. It’s like the 3-row Atlas SUV in nearly every way, but with two fewer seats and more style. Besides the lower roofline, the new model also employs a more raked liftgate and has a revised grille and headlight treatment.
