The new year brings with it expectations, hopes, dreams, aspirations and more. It also includes vehicles to watch for in 2020. At Napleton.news have had a look in the pipeline and what we see is pretty exciting! Whether your tastes run to Cars, SUVs, Trucks, or Hatchbacks, there will literally be something for everybody in 2020.
The last of the seventh-generation GTI models, the 2020 Volkswagen GTI is an adept performance sedan/hatchback that is at the top of the list for performance bank-for-buck in this segment. Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, it is mated to a choice of the six-speed manual transmission or an available super slick seven-speed Dual Clutch Direct-Shift automatic transmission. We say order the 7-speed DSG and get launch control as an included bonus. Available at a Napleton Volkswagen dealership near you.
The new 2021 Kia Seltos is a subcompact crossover utility vehicle that can do it all. Designed to slot in between the Kia Soul and Kia Sportage, the Seltos includes a choice of 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine producing 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque or the award-winning 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-liter engine includes a continuously-variable transmission (CVT) while the 1.6-liter turbocharged mill is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Front-wheel-drive (FWD) is standard, while all-wheel-drive is an available option. Available soon at Napleton Kia dealerships near you.
2021 CHEVROLET TAHOE/SUBURBAN
Modern-day classics in their own right, the new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban are a pair of iconic vehicles that can stake the claim of being the best-selling family of full-size SUVs for the past 44 years. Power ranges from a 5.3-liter or 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to either a six- or 10-speed automatic transmission, depending on the configuration. There’s now more room for people, cargo and more advanced technology and an unrivaled driving experience. Class-leading interior space and immensely improved driving dynamics continue to place the two at the top of many buyer’s wish lists. Available from Napleton’s Chevrolet of Wayzata.
2020 MERCEDES-BENZ S-CLASS
A shining example of “The Best or Nothing,” the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is exactly what a luxury car should be: A sedan utilizing the best fit and finish, technology and craftsmanship to provide a vehicle that is much more than just a car, but an experience. New for 2020 is the S560 Plug-in Hybrid that couples an electric motor with a twin-turbo V6 engine for added efficiency and an electric-only range of 25 miles. Other options include a 362-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and a 463-horsepower twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. Rear-wheel-drive is the default, but Mercedes-Benz’s 4MATIC all-wheel-drive is an available option. Still, if that’s not enough, check out the Mercedes AMG line of performance variants. Available at Napleton’s Mercedes of Rochester.
PORSCHE TAYCAN TURBO S
An electric vehicle that is a pure sports car, the new 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S is one of the most exciting high-performance vehicles to hit the road in a long time. A recent test on the world-famous Nurburgring racing circuit had it pacing around the 12.8-mile course as quickly as a Cayman GT4. Zero to 60 mph comes on in a supercar-like 2.6 seconds. The Taycan Turbo S even has a top speed of 162 miles per hour. It even charges fast (using the most powerful chargers), achieving a charge from 5- to 80-percent in just 22 minutes. Capable of carrying up to five people inside, it’s proof you can have it all: A green vehicle with the ability to carry five in a technologically-advanced car that is pure Porsche.
