Dropping late this year, Honda’s flagship sedan will be a perfect choice for those who prefer passenger cars over the popular SUVs. Although not so big in sales last year, Honda still is a household name and has a loyal following. The new version will feature edginess, prestige and luxury complemented with advanced technology. It will also be available in hybrid version to challenge its rival Toyota Camry Hybrid. A choice of 145kw 1.5-litre or 191kw 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinders is available for buyers.

This sedan doesn’t come cheap though and will cost more than $40,000.

2020 Ford Escape

The new-generation Escape mid-size SUV is a big deal for Ford Australia. While any new model riding on a fresh platform is significant, the Escape is more so because it will be the first Ford sold in Australia with the option of a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain. Pairing a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine (running on the Atkinson cycle) with an electric motor, the PHEV has a solid combined power output of 165kW. Other local engine options are yet to be confirmed, but petrol and diesel units are offered in other markets, so anything is possible. Needless to say, the Escape will be gunning for the award-winning Toyota RAV4 harder than ever when it arrives in the first half of 2020.

The 2020 Ford Escape Costs $25,980 to Start and More Than $40,000 Fully Loaded.

Hyundai Sonata

The Sonata has been a key part of Hyundai Australia’s line-up for some time, and while the mid-sizer declining in popularity, it still has a role to play.In a sign of the times, the new-generation Sonata is available in 143kW hybrid form internationally, but whether or not it makes it Down Under in the first half of 2020 remains to be seen.What is a surety then, though, is a 142kW/245Nm 2.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, while a 134kW/264Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol unit could also feature.

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata prices start at $23,400 for the base SE. The SEL models are priced from $25,500 while the SEL Plus carries an MSRP of $27,450. The top line Limited costs $33,300.

Mercedes-AMG CLA35

The Mercedes-AMG CLA35 is perfect for those that can stretch the budget, but just not too far for another one of those coupe-style sedans.With the badge and the performance to keep most happy, the CLA35 is an absolute crowd-pleaser that could become one of Mercedes-AMG best-selling models in Australia following its launch in the first quarter next year.The three-pointed star, a 225kW/400NM 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission will do that.

Prices would range from $46,900.

Volkswagen Passat

Feeling a bit more civilised? Enter the facelifted Volkswagen Passat mid-sizer, which is due Down Under in January 2020. Debuting in 140TSI Business form, the Passat will usher in a new 140kW/320Nm turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine and a new multimedia system that supports wireless Apple CarPlay. The Passat’s suite of advanced driver-assist systems will also expand to include technologies that will more or less enable self-driving on highways.

Prices would range from $55,000.
