Top Cars Coming To Australia In 2022 - Red Plum Automotive

  • by: redplum • 1 month ago

We are excited to share our top cars coming to Australia in 2022. 2021 was a challenging year in the motor industry for those selling and buying cars. Particularly for those looking to buy a new car. Looking ahead to a more promising year, many new models will be arriving in Australia in 2022.

Even though car shortages will most likely continue into the middle of next year, new models are on the way. Manufacturers are confident they will arrive in Australia in 2022. However, as we learned this year, delays happen, and timelines change. The semiconductor shortage remains the primary reason behind the stock shortages. Some in the industry are likening it to deficiencies seen after WW II!

Top Cars Coming To Australia in 2022.

On a brighter note, let’s look at our picks for the top cars coming to Australia in 2022. The order is alphabetical because cars mean different things to different people. Our job is to make sure you get the right car for your needs and wants.

      1.  Audi Q4 E-Tron Audi’s most affordable electric car to date will arrive in Europe in June 2022, and Audi says it is working on confirming a time for Australia. We are hoping for the end of the year. The Q4 E-Tron And Q4 E-Tron Sportback are based on the VW Group’s MEB EV architecture. Audi retains the distinctive deep grill and crossover styling from what we know—making this car both tough, stylish and the most affordable of Audi’s electric vehicles to date.

      2. Ford Ranger The first new ranger in 10 years and will arrive mid-2022. It’s bolder, and there is a bit more luxury in the interior. The chassis and the cabin have a new design. Following the official release in November, Ford has assured buyers any reliability concerns in previous models are no longer a problem. This next-gen ranger design covers all bases; work, family and recreation. Official engine outputs are not available yet; however, there will likely be three diesel variants, one petrol variant, and a future hybrid power train. Ford indicates a single-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel similar to the US F-150. We’re excited to include the new Ford ranger in our Top Cars Coming to Australia in 2022.

      3. Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The C-Class was due to launch in Australia this quarter but is due now in mid-2022. The primary reason is the semiconductor shortages. This stalwart of the Mercedes sedan and wagon lineup is on our list because of the interior. Externally, it is a likeable sedan, but internally, it is a whole new level for this marque. The images and reviews we have seen make you fall in love with this car from the central and driver display screens, extraordinary driver-assistance system and a rear-wheel steering option for the hardcore drivers. It’s roomier, particularly for passengers. There is a new steering wheel that looks more elegant and slimmer. Mercedes-Benz has taken the interiors to a new level of luxury.

      4. Tesla Model Y. With Mr Musk being Times person of the year, we were compelled to include this electric SUV likely to arrive in Australia in the first part of 2022. If you are looking at a Model 3, the Model Y should be on your radar. In essence, it is the SUV version of the Model 3. There are differences, of course, which you can read about here.

      5. Volkswagon Tiguan R. Volkswagen has at least ten new models set to launch in 2022, from the new Caddy California to the Touareg R and in-between. But it is the Tiguan R powered by the 235kW/400Nm 2.0 litre turbo four-cylinder engine that excites our team. It is the first petrol-powered, R-badged VW SUV offered in Australia. So if it is performance you are looking for, this mid-sized European SUV should be on your list. It is, however, 20Nm down on engine capacity compared to Europe. VW says this ensures the car arrives in a “timely manner.”

Due to the ongoing stock shortages, the best pricing is no longer one of the deciding factors for many car buyers. Our role is to help you find an available vehicle that best suits your needs. Our advice is flexibility, e.g., looking at a model with fewer specifications, considering a different model or brand, or a second-hand car.

If you don’t need a car straight away, placing an order will achieve better pricing and guarantee you the exact vehicle you want; however, it can take up to twelve months for some makes and models to arrive. Don’t worry; we will keep you informed every step of the way, and you don’t pay for the car until it comes. Contact us to discuss how we can help.
