Audi A6

  • Price Range: $90-120K
  • Launch Date: First Quarter of 2019

Evolutionary shaping may make Audi A6 2019 in Australia look approximately identical to already released Audi models. But, get up close and the difference becomes quite plain. According to sources, there’s still a quasi-hexagonal grille, professionally creased sheet-metal and a normally broad-shouldered look to Audi’s most-appealing and upcoming E-Class fighter. According to Audi, however, it’s a much sportier-feeling car while a mild-hybrid tech adoption in every single model helps control the big vehicle’s thirst.

Moreover, heaps of aluminum, rear-wheel steering, a brace of muscular turbo diesel, active rear differentials and petrol V6s amp up an A6’s driver demand. All occupants, however, will get a benefit from the new generation of Audi’s ever-evolving infotainment system.

Audi A1

  • Price Range: $30-40K
  • Launch Date: March or April 2019

It’s now time to roll-off from the latest Volkswagen Polo’s platform as Audi A1 in Australia promises to inject an impressive deal more erudition into a bottom end of a German brand’s product portfolio. This A1 is more than 4 meters long and quite big as compared to before – but a new powertrains range include a 1.5 liters turbo 4 with cylinder deactivation – move a mechanical game along too. Digging down inside the vehicle, there is a good sense of maturity in a cabin furnishings and a plethora of infotainment tech.

BMW 8 Series

  • Price Range: $180-250K
  • Launch Date: First Quarter of 2019

The 6 Series of BMW has carved out making way for the long-anticipated return of BMW 8 Series 2019 in Australia, isn’t it exciting? Well, don’t let that change in numbers make you fool, for 8 Series doesn’t need to represent any significant size, spec or sportiness. All in all, the most-awaited three-variant 8 Series family (convertible two-door coupe and low-slung four-door) will mirror that of a departed 6 Series range and we are expecting their price tags will as well.

In the first quarter, M850i coupe will be the BMW’s first out of the blocks – equipped with a V8 wallop to the tune of 390kW and 750Nm. We are expecting it to be performed exceptionally but it’s better to expect an M8 performance flagship to arrive later and turn the wick up even higher.

Ford Focus Active

  • Price Range: $29-30K
  • Launch Date: Second Quarter of 2019

The Focus hatch has already received a changeover in terms of design by now – but it’ll grow when Ford Focus Active 2019 in Australia rolls into Ford showrooms in 2019. Keep following an identical format to the Impreza-based Subaru XV but labeled by the company as a passenger car instead of an SUV but Focus Active will bond a gap between the regular Focus hatchback and company’s bona-fide SUV line-up.

According to Ford, it’ll only be loaded with a 134kW 1.5 liters turbo petrol and it’s strictly front-wheel drive with an 8 speed automatic.

Ford Fiesta

  • Price Range: $28-30K
  • Launch Date: Second Quarter of 2019

The Ford Fiesta 2019 in Australia has been long a go-ahead wonderful of the compact hatch set and the company will be reeling up an athletic ability of its Fiesta this year with Fiesta ST hot hatch. Fiesta aside for a short while, ST will be only a way you’ll get to put a new-gen Fiesta in your driveway. Australia due to unfavorable exchange rates declined to bring Ford’s lesser models in the range to local showrooms – putting a squeeze on pricing.

As far as Fiesta ST is concerned, it’s been driven and declared one of the best hot hatch options as it is set users back extra $20K. It is most likely to land on shores somewhere in the second quarter of 2019.

Honda Accord

  • Price Range: $40-50K
  • Launch Date: December 2019

Honda is all set to celebrate its 50 years of selling cars in Australia this year and the most appealing news on its car launch calendar is the arrival of 10th generation Accord before the year ends. Accord is something which will come late in Australia – however, it’s already on sale in the United States since mid-2017. Honda is suffering a decline in sales in a mid-size car segment – where an Accord will sit – might temper sales somewhat. But in Australia, Honda said that it wouldn’t be gunning for big volumes with its next Accord. Rest of the details are still under wraps but it won’t be surprised anymore if the high-end strategy sees the Accord’s price of entry head north of $50K.

Nissan Leaf

  • Price Range: $50-60K
  • Launch Date: March 2019

The Nissan Leaf Electric Car in Australia is going to make a comeback for its second generation somewhere in March with the same format as its predecessor (the same architecture too). But, it’ll be packing in greater energy storage and more power as compared to before. The styling back to take a Leaf in a more conservative direction and there is an impressive emphasis when it comes to assisting the driver – giving the new Leaf some limited self-driving capabilities.

According to Nissan, it’ll have a Car-to-Grid Charging Technology which unlocks some interesting new avenues for the Leaf – theoretically to make it a part of an interconnected smart power grid and making capable enough to passively earn its owner money while it’s parked.
