If you’ve already followed part one of this blog, we know you’ll be revved up for part two of our sneak peek at the most promising new cars, trucks, and SUVs of 2024. If you haven't read it yet, here's part one

Buckle up, because this will be an exciting ride. 

Presenting the new cars set to grace the Australian road:


  • Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

New Cars 2024 - Hyundai Ioniq 5

Korean manufacturer Hyundai has been teasing the Ioniq 5 N for quite some time, even revealing it at their 2022 N Day celebration. But next year, all this teasing will finally become a reality. 

While still little is known about this new Hyundai release, the streets are already buzzing with ideas of what it could look like. Based on some reviews of its leaked prototypes, it has a unique lower height and is powered by an electric powertrain used in models like the Kia EV6 GT.

  • Hyundai Tucson Hybrid

Set to battle the Toyota RAV-4 in the hybrid car space, the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid charges in fully armed with new features for its 2024 release. 

It is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine with a 44.2kW electric motor plus a 1.49 kWh battery pack for a complete electric drive. Meanwhile, the fuel economy is reportedly at 5.7 litres per 100km. 


  • Carnival update

New Cars 2024 - Kia Carnival

The Australian market has sufficiently insisted on upgrades and Kia has finally listened! Their top selling Kia Carnival, which will be released in Q1 of 2024, will now include rain sensing wipers as well as a 12.3 inch digital instrument cluster. 

But it already shut down the calls for a local steering tune, but we hope they'll include it soon!

  • Sportage hybrid 

New Cars 2024 - Kia Sportage Hybrid

The long-awaited hybrid edition of the Kia Sportage midsize SUV is set to launch in Australia in January 2024, albeit at a higher price point compared to a similar Toyota RAV4 hybrid. While its features are yet to be known, they’re already working on modifying it to the Australian market.  


  • CX-80

New Cars 2024 - Mazda CX-80

Mazda is also beefing up its Australian car lineup, most notably adding the unrevealed CX-80 SUV to the mix. But there's a sad catch. 

It's replacing the CX-9, which will be discontinued after two generations. 

CX-80 is the first of Mazda's four vehicles to be released in Australia, and according to the manufacturer, the large SUV could make its global debut in the first quarter of 2024. Featuring a three row interior, it shows they're putting a premium on car space and the convenience of their passengers. 


  • Mercedes AMG GLC Range

New Cars 2024 - Mercedes AMG GLC Range

Expected to arrive in the 2nd quarter of 20,24 the Mercedes-AMG GLC range is already gaining traction among its excited Australian car fanbase. 

The AMG models feature double wishbone front and rear suspension, nine speed dual clutch automatic transmission, and electric power capabilities. The battery powering the vehicles has direct cooling and can be charged via recuperation or onboard charging. It can last up to 12 kms. 

More to come as we approach D-Day. 


  • The new Mitsubishi Triton

New Cars 2024 - Mitsubishi Triton

A leader in the Australian pickup scene, Mitsubishi's newly improved Triton is set to reclaim its throne from its rivals, the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux.

It carries a new diesel engine, a more detailed interior, tougher styling, and is much bigger. Soon enough, we’ll see its electric (PHEV) version launch as well. 


  • Nissan Ariya 

New Cars 2024 - Nissan Ariya

Nissan is also joining in the electric car scene, with the impending launch of the Ariya in Australia next year. This much anticipated release experienced delays due to securing a local and definitive launch date. 

Globally, it features a single motor FWD and a dual motor e-4ORCE AWD drivetrain along with battery pack options for longer rides. 


  • Fronx

New Cars 2024 - Suzuki Fronx

The name may sound strange, but wait until you see what's in it. 

Suzuki's small crossover SUV Fronx brings an all new driving experience to the table. It's also replacing the much beloved Baleno which the Japanese carmaker discontinued in Australia last year. 

Armed with an upright exterior design, it also boasts a wide colour selection, LED lights, and a full width rear light bar. 

On the other hand, its engine is believed to be modelled after its Indian release, using the powerful 74kW and 148Nm 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbo petrol. 


  • Hybrid CH-R

New Cars 2024 - Toyota CHR Hybrid

The second generation Toyota CH-R is now fully hybrid, and Australia is one of the few countries that will be able to get their hands on it by early next year. 

Sadly, Toyota isn't planning to introduce its plug-in hybrid variant so that’s yet another PHEV that we won’t get to see locally, after the Prius and RAV4. 

However, it offers a similar powertrain to the globally available Prius, featuring a 103kW 1.8-litre and 144kW 2.0-litre hybrid options.
