Hot Cars of 2020 - What You Need to Know

 There has been no shortage of options to choose from this year as modern car buyers set out to find a new car, SUV, or truck. Below are our top three picks for 2020 and what you need to know about them. 

  1. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

The wild looks of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette give the new Stingray a magnetic appearance. This mid-engine sports car features a revised suspension for smoother handling and offers an upgrade that allows the driver to adjust the stiffness dial as well as the ride height for maximum comfort. The 6.2-liter V8 engine is located behind the driver beneath a clear panel that lets you see the inner workings of the vehicle. The 2020 Stingray also boasts 490 horsepower with the price tag for this beauty coming in at just under $60,000. 

  1. Aston Martin Rapide E

Aston Martin is investing in the electric vehicle trend by coming out with a fully electric version of its Rapide coupe. The sleek Rapide E is expected to run for more than 200 miles on a single charge. Its dual rear-mounted motors can also generate 600 horsepower which should enable a 0-60 mph time in under four seconds. Sports car lovers will have to battle over this Aston Martin model as the manufacturer is planning a limited release of only 155 units costing around $260,000 each. 

  1. Tesla Roadster 

The Tesla Roadster is another full-electric car making waves in 2020. The modern curvy profile, lightweight glass roof panel, and high-speed capabilities have made this car the talk of the season. Tesla has been boasting about the Roadster’s rocket-like performance with claims this electric vehicle can go from 0-60 mph in under 2 seconds. In addition to its incredible speed, the Roadster is also expected to hold a longer charge that will carry the car more than 600 miles. Most other electric vehicles at this time can only hold a charge of around 250 miles, so the battery life of the new Tesla Roadster is truly impressive.   

 This year has seen some impressive new vehicles come to the stage, but one thing to note is the rise in electric vehicles. Aston Martin and Tesla aren’t the only brands promoting a sleek new electric model in 2020. Porsche announced its first electric ride in a new battery-driven four-door sports car, the Porsche Taycan. As popular car brands continue to make the switch from gas to electric or hybrid, you can expect to see even more exciting technological advancements and fun new features coming to your cars.
