2020 has arrived and that means an onslaught of new, exciting cars are making its way to South Africa during the next 12 months.

The likes of Volkswagen, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, and Renault, to name a few, all have models lined up for this year. Without giving too much away, there are a healthy number of SUVs set to invade the market too

What to expect

It will be a busy 2020 for Audi as they will be launching a total of 16 new models, including the all-electric e-Tron SUV.

Perhaps most anticipated is the eighth-generation Golf 8 from Volkswagen, and the really fast, stunning electric sports car, the Porsche Taycan.
