Mark your calendar for these new arrivals

It’s safe to say a lot of us will be pretty happy to be see the end of 2021. And the good news is that on the auto front, the new year looks promising. Coming in 2022 is a mix of some hotly anticipated new models, updated next-generation nameplates and even new car brands making their debut down under.

Whatever you’re in the market for, here are six imminent auto arrivals to keep your eyes on in 2022.


Cupra Formentor – late Q2, 2022

Not to worry if the name is unfamiliar. Volkswagen Group’s all-new performance sub-brand Cupra will land in Australia in June, spearheaded by its Formentor small SUV.

With the swift handling of a hot hatch and the roomy interior of a wagon, the five-door Formentor is sure to prove popular with both city slickers and families seeking adventurous weekends away.

With several driving modes available, an elevated driving position and extra ground clearance compared to many similar crossovers, the Formentor could be the sporty new addition to your garage that you’ve been waiting for.


The Nissan Z – mid-2022

After more than a decade on sale, Nissan will retire the 370Z in 2022 to make way for the retro-inspired Z sports coupe.

Sports car enthusiasts will be well catered for behind the wheel of the all-new Nissan Z, reported to be one of the most powerful Z cars ever released. It will boast a 3.0 litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, capable of producing up to 298kW and 475Nm. Drivers will have the choice of six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmissions.

Among its many stylish appointments will be an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a reversing camera, a configurable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and leather-accented sport seats.


Ford Ranger – unknown, 2022

Australia’s second best-selling vehicle, the Ford Ranger, will receive a facelift in 2022. The next-generation Ranger has been designed and engineered in Australia for local conditions and will be the toughest, most capable and most connected Ranger yet developed by Ford.

Full details on the updated model are still to be released, but it is expected to offer an optional plug-in hybrid powertrain as well as an overhauled engine range. The new Ranger will also launch with the high-tech FordPass Connect, which allows owners to connect to their vehicle remotely to start it, monitor vehicle conditions and perform functions such as locking and unlocking.1


Kia EV6 – first half 2022

The Korean brand will extend its already considerable electric vehicle range with the all-new EV6. The mid-size SUV will be the first vehicle on the E-GMP dedicated EV platform and according to Kia, has already become their most eagerly anticipated model down under.

Blending a futuristic design, optional augmented reality head-up display, the spaciousness of a 5-seat crossover, and over 500km of targeted range on a single charge, the model is expected to be a big seller among the ever-increasing sustainably conscious demographic.

Also worth highlighting are the Vehicle to Load ports, which will allow drivers to use the EV6 as a charger or to power electric devices such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets, home appliances, camping equipment and more.


Peugeot 308 – Q1, 2022

The all-new Peugeot 308 hatchback arrives early next year to challenge such segment heavyweights as the Mazda 3, Hyundai i30 and even more premium marques like the BMW’s 1 Series. The 308 will be the most technologically advanced, most efficient and most refined family hatch the brand has yet released.

Specifications for the new 308 have not been made public, but Peugeot have confirmed the model will feature a new design and a premium interior with advanced technology, including a new ‘OK Peugeot’ voice control system. Following the recent brand refresh, the 308 will also be the first production vehicle to wear Peugeot’s new coat of arms.


BMW i4 – Q1, 2022

Taking styling cues from the current 4 Series, the BMW i4 is an all-new low-slung, four-door electric sedan set to compete against the likes of the Tesla 3.

The i4 will be available in Australian showrooms in two variants, the eDrive40 and the performance-focused M50. Both variants use fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology, and can take you over 500km on a single charge.2

Standard equipment in the eDrive40 includes 19-inch wheels, a 14.9-inch infotainment touchscreen, 10-speaker sound system, and a full suite of advanced safety and driver assistance aids. In addition to these, the M50 offers performance tyres, a rear lip spoiler, M Performance styling elements, an electric glass roof and laser headlights.
