One of the best-looking new cars in 2020 is without a doubt the Mazda RX-9. The automaker has been dabbling in sports cars for many years now but it appears that Mazda has truly decided to take the next step into what can be described as their first true supercar. With a sleek design and some incredible equipment under the hood, it looks like the RX-9 is slated to be one of the Japanese car manufacturers' most impressive vehicles to date.
Originally announced in 2015 as the RX-Vision, Mazda quickly decided to change the name to the much more fitting and awesome-sounding RX-9. The car is slated for a January 2020 release, just in time for Mazda's 100th anniversary, and would cost around $75,000 as a starting price. It's strongly believed that the RX-9 will contain the legendary Mazda Wankel rotary engine, last used in the Mazda RX-8, as it uses an eccentric rotary design to turn pressure into a motion of rotation. Unfortunately, executives at the company have alluded that this may not be the case. Either way, this is shaping up to be one incredible sports car.
Predicted Cost: $75,195
The Cadillac Escalade is one of the world’s most luxurious and best-reviewed SUVs of all time. This humungous vehicle stands at massive dimensions of 204” long, 81” wide, and 74” tall. 6.2-liter V-8 delivers 420 horsepowers and allows it to go from zero to sixty in an unbelievable 6 seconds. It’s expected that the gas mileage on such a massive car would be quite steep and indeed, the Escalade burns 14 miles per gallon in the city and 23 on the highway.
The Escalade has been generally favored due to its strong engine and super-fast acceleration, its excellent towing abilities at 8,000 pounds, and a very comfortable plush interior that's common in most of Cadillac's lineup. It's a big and bold vehicle, and looks especially intimidating when you go for the black color. If you can get over the insane amount of fuel consumption, you'd be happy to get the 2020 Cadillac Escalade for $75,195 or the long-wheelbase version, called the Escalade ESV, for $78,195. This is truly one extraordinary large luxury SUV.
Predicted Cost: $63,000/$155,000
When the Volvo Polestar 3 and 4 were first announced, they were being pre-ordered like no other car from the popular automaker. The Polestar 3 and 4 are part of a new line of groundbreaking cars Volvo is working on, both in their design and in their internal systems. With an all-electric engine and a fantastic 275 miles of range on a single charge, Volvo is truly positioning themselves to pioneer the electric cars market along with Elon Musk’s Tesla brand.
The company is as ambitious as ever and aims to have four of these vehicles already on the roads and in the hands of consumers by the end of 2020. Each of the four Polestars will be unique in their own way, and based on Volvo’s incredible track record for innovation in the tech and safety departments, we’re confident that these bad boys will blow away consumer’s minds.’
