CUPRA Formentor Concept Car: cupraofficial.com/garage/formentor-cuv-car.html

Hispano Suiza Carmen: hispanosuizacars.com/press-photos
Hispano Suiza was among the most recognizable names in the automotive industry before the WWII. Now, the company makes a triumphant return to the market with its first all-electric supercar model called Carmen.
Volvo V60 Cross Country: volvocars.com/us/cars/new-models/v60/trims/cross-country
In its natural form, the V60 is an estate wagon, but since this body style is not the most popular among the buyers lately, Volvo, like many of its competitors, is attempting to boost the appeal of the model by introducing a crossoverish trim. The rugged Cross Country has 75 mm or 3 inches higher ground.
Polestar 2: polestar.com/cars/polestar-2
Branded as 5-door fastback, the new all-electric Polestar 2 is aiming to compete in the same segment as Tesla Model 3. With 310 miles or range and over 400 horses of power, the EV definitely has the characteristics necessary, but it does lag behind in terms of being affordably priced.
Polestar 1: polestar.com/polestar-1
The Polestar 1 supercar is finally arriving to the market in the second half of 2019. However, all of the 500 units scheduled for production this year have already been sold out, so you should hurry up to reserve one from the 2020 batch, because apparently these $150,000 cars are selling out like hot cakes.
Skoda Kamiq: skoda-storyboard.com/en/images/?filter[model]%5B0%5D=kamiq
2020 Skoda Kamiq is the newest addition to the Czech manufacturer crossover family that has a more youthful and modern look and is designed to attract younger generation to the brand.

2019 Koenigsegg Jesko is expected to break the 300-mph speed barrier, competing for the status of the world’s fastest car with models produced by Bugatti, Hennessey Performance and Tuatara.
Škoda Scala: skoda-auto.com/news/news-detail/skoda-scala
After the discontinuation of the Skoda Rapid, the Czech company needed a replacement to continue competing on the compact hatchbacks market, which came in the form of the all new Scala. The name of the newcomer is translated from Latin as Stairs, which hints at the big step in the compact car segment.
Volvo XC90: media.volvocars.com/global/en-gb/media/pressreleases/248275/volvo-cars-introduces-refreshed-volvo-xc90-suv
For the 2020 model year, Volvo XC90 is getting a mild exterior facelift, lots of technological upgrades inside the cabin, and a new energy recovery braking system for the T8 PHEV powertrain.
Skoda Superb Scout: skoda-storyboard.com/en/press-releases/new-skoda-superb-scout-added-to-superb-family-for-the-first-time/
Along with the facelifted Superb sedan, Skoda has recently announced an off-road ready Superb Scout model to join the family for the 2020 model year. Though it still based on the regular Superb, the new estate is expected to become a valid alternative to many crossover models.
