Hot hatchbacks coming in 2022

Cupra Born

2021 Cupra el-Born - front 3/4 view

On sale: April

Cupra has revealed the Volkswagen ID.3-based Born, which is one of the first electric hot hatches. The Cupra Born gets a much bigger battery than standard cars, and promises over 330 miles of range and 0-31mph in just 2.9 seconds. It has rear-wheel drive and gets all the usual trademark Cupra copper touches, inside and out.

2022 Honda Civic Type R

2022 Honda Civic Type R

On sale: 2022

Prototypes of the 2022 Honda Civic Type R have been spotted testing in recent months and while the new model won’t be a huge departure from the current car, it’s likely to retain the outlandish bodystyling. Power is likely to come from a reworked version of the current turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine, with a slight power increase to around 330bhp.

MPVs coming in 2022

2022 Dacia Jogger

2022 Dacia Jogger

On sale: Now

While Dacia has offered MPVs in other European markets for several years, the new Jogger seven-seater is the first sold in the UK. It boasts a utilitarian-SUV style design, the brand’s latest styling and technology, and a range of frugal petrol engines. While pricing has yet to be revealed, when the Jogger arrives in showrooms we’d expect it to be the cheapest seven-seat car on sale by some margin.

Mercedes T-Class

On sale: 2022

Mercedes is set to join the van-based MPV market with a new T-Class model, which will be launched in 2022. It’ll be an upmarket rival to the Ford Tourneo Connect and Volkswagen Caddy Life, with petrol, diesel and electric options all due. The German brand will hope the T-Class will prove a greater success than the Mercedes X-Class pickup, which was clearly based on the Nissan Navara and withdrawn after just two years on sale.

Volkswagen ID. Buzz

VW ID. Buzz prototype

Reveal: March

Volkswagen has reinvented its iconic Microbus for the electric era, and the ID. Buzz will be offered in MPV, cargo van and even campervan guises. It’ll share powertrains with the ID.3 and ID.4, and the top versions should achieve close to 300 miles between charges.
