Many new vehicles will be arriving at European dealerships before this year ends. Find here the TOP 10 models which are the most interesting newcomers, in our opinion.
About two dozen new models are expected in car dealerships of Europe in November-December 2021. We’ve picked out the TOP 10 models of them.
The high-performance, aggressive-looking third-generation Audi RS3 is powered by a 2.5-liter 394-hp 6-cylinder turbo engine, and accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds.
BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé
This 4-door model joins the Coupé and Convertible in the lineup. A hot M4 version will eventually come as well. The starting price in Great Britain is £40,465 for the entry-level 420i.
Chevrolet Corvette C8
The mid-engine eight-generation Chevy Corvette comes with its 6.2-liter V8, a manually adjustable suspension, a standard performance exhaust system and electronic limited-slip differential. The car needs less than 3.0 seconds to accelerate from a standstill to 62 mph. The UK price starts at £81,700.
Genesis G70 Shooting Brake
This version is developed specifically for Europe. It offers a choice of engines, including 2.0-liter gasoline and diesel ones. A 6-cylinder option may join. The pricing will follow soon.
The third-generation Honda HR-V got a comprehensive redesign. The only powertrain it offers now for Europe is a hybrid one – a derivation from the CR-V’s gasoline-electric setup. The total output is 129 horsepower.
The car keeps a raised ground clearance but adopts a sloping, coupé-style roofline and a newly looking front end to match the new-gen Civic hatchback. The 0-62 mph sprint takes about 10 seconds. The top speed is 100 mph.
The new, 2nd-gen NX got a 302-hp plug-in hybrid system, evolved exterior and all-new interior.
The NX 450h+ uses the same setup as the Toyota RAV4 and the Suzuki Across, namely a 182-hp 2.5-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder gasoline engine with a 180-hp electric motor on the front axle, and a 54-hp motor at the rear, plus permanent four-wheel drive. The crossover speeds up from zero to 62 mph in 6.0 seconds.

The hot Kona N features aggressive styling, enhanced performance, improved driving. It is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four that produces 276 hp and 289 lb-ft. The British price starts at £35,395.
Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV
Already popular in America, the vehicle with improved on- and off-road capability now lands in Europe. Its power comes from a 2.0-liter turbo-four with a 400-volt, 17-kWh battery. The total system output is 370 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.
The 5th-gen model is radically redesigned inside and out. Some detailing came from the Kia EV6. It features a curved digital display, a new infotainment touchscreen, soft-touch haptic switches, a few electrified powertrains and a diesel option.
