Mercedes Benz CLA
Predicted Cost: $37,645
One of the German auto manufacturers’ best series to date is the CLA Mercedes Benz. Finally, a smooth and beautiful machine that serves both luxury needs and performance requirements at a very affordable price for upper-middle-class families. If you’re a junior partner at a law firm or an up-and-coming broker looking to make a great first impression, this is the perfect car for you. The 2020 CLA features some incredible upgrades both inside and outside the prestigious car, but also sports a higher price tag than usual. The CLA250’s new engine is a 2.0 liter turbo that puts out a mean 302 horsepower and easily justifies its $37,000* price tag. When compared to the brand’s A-class vehicles, the CLA looks much younger and more sports-oriented to say the least.
If you’re looking for the latest in high-tech features both inside and outside the car, Mercedes definitely has you covered. With Mercedes-Benz becoming ever more popular among both young and older audiences, and the brand’s ever-growing lineup of affordable luxury cars, it looks like the CLA is going to accompany us for many years to come.
Aston Martin DBX
Predicted Cost: $226,250
The famous luxury vehicle brand Aston Martin has been trying to create a bunch of creative new lineups in it’s rather a small set of cars. We’ve been introduced to everything from the hybrid Aston Martin Valkyrie to the limited electric Aston Martin Rapid E. One of the company's latest ventures has been a very serious attempt to create serious competition for the Ferraris and the Lamborghinis that are often purchased by the rich and famous. It’s the latest iteration in this attempt is the incredible 2020 Aston Martin DBX, which it hopes will be a game-changer in the supercar industry.
While there is still a lot to find out about the car, which is currently in intense production at the company’s factory in Wales, we already know that it has been described by critics as a possible “Lamborghini killer.” The DBX sports twin-turbo 4-liter V8 engines and uses the new hybrid tech that Mercedes Benz has been using in their vehicles as of late. The car has been self-described by Aston Martin as the most important car the maker has ever designed and based on the photos, you can probably see why.
Predicted Cost: $22,745
We were first introduced to the Subaru Legacy back when it hit the markets in the mid-‘60s, and while the car has been well received, it did leave a bit lacking in-terms of its design. The 2020 Subaru takes care of just that with a revamped look that closely mirrors the popular Honda Accord and Honda Camry, but it's not just the exterior that has been significantly improved this year. If you’re looking for safety and the latest in terms of technology at slightly higher than entry price, you’ll definitely find it in the 2020 Subaru Legacy; With brand new flared fenders, adaptive cruise control and an overhauled interior full of the latest gadgets and tech, you’ll definitely feel right at home.
As aforementioned, the safety features have also been upgraded significantly, from life-saving auto-emergency brakes to lane departure warning signals and lane-centering technologies. If you’re interested in the car but are looking mostly for the comfort, safety, and tech (without the inflated price tag of the Mercedes and Audi brand), you should get the 2.5-liter engine with 182 horsepower. If, on the other hand, you like to mix speed with all that modern stuff, you should definitely go for the turbo 2.4 liter engine that can produce a very respectable 260 horsepower.
Porsche 911 Carrera 4
Predicted Cost: $106,050
The eighth generation of the 911 continues the timeless legacy of Porsche's series. There are good reasons why the 911 is arguably the most famous car the German brand has ever made, with a zero to sixty acceleration of 4 seconds and a top speed of 180 miles per hour due to its new 3.0-liter turbo flat-six engine, this one definitely justifies Porsche's brand. The 2020 model of the 911 keeps the sports car’s interior but adds various amazing improvements underneath the hood. Porsche also added a liquid-cooled clutch and supercharged power units which make the 911 even faster and better handling than ever before.
The 2020 911 will be available for purchase in the United States in early 2020 with prices starting at $106,000. If you’ve got the cash and you’re not willing to settle for trash, the 2020 Porsche 911 will no doubt be one of your most prized possessions. Would you be willing to pay over $100,000 for the pleasure of owning one of the slickest and most awesome cars that was ever invented? We sure would.
Land Rover Evoque
Predicted Cost: $50,000
One of the reasons Land Rover fans love the off-road brand is because it combines technology and luxury with the classic 4x4 experience that off-road enthusiasts look for. The 2020 Land Rover Evoque doesn’t disappoint with its study build, dependable technology and prestigious redesigned look that lets you drive tough terrains with style. The car boasts a classy interior design that complements its fantastic handling and sporty driving, all while having off-road capabilities that make its competitors scared.
The Evoque includes a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but you can also get a stronger hybrid version that will give you 300 horsepower to work with. The biggest criticism that the 2020 Evoque has received was for its relatively tight visibility due to the car’s massive size. Other than that, the car is a fantastic drive — both on roads and off-road. If you’re a fan of Jeep and Land Rover, you should definitely give this one a test drive.
