Ones To Watch: 5 Of The Best New Cars Coming In 2022

< Back to blog

2021 is coming to an end and we’ve already got our eyes firmly set on 2022, which is promising some fantastic new cars.

From iconic sports cars and a sporty, dramatic electric car, to a couple of ‘hard-to-say-no-to’ budget SUVs. We’ve created a list of the best new cars coming in 2022.


1. Cupra Born

New CUPRA Born
  • Estimated price: £32,000
  • On sale: 2022

A first in the CUPRA line-up – the Born is an all-electric ‘hot hatch’ with dramatic styling that has received many plaudits.

Based on the same platform as the very successful Volkswagen ID.3, the CUPRA Born also has a great choice of batteries, the biggest of which promises a whopping 333 miles of range between charges. There’s an entry-level 45kWh unit, a mid-range 58kWh one and a range-topping 77kWh battery.

In terms of performance, the car will have a 201bhp electric motor and rear-wheel drive to help it feel that bit more sportier. This, according to the manufacturer, translates to a 0-62mph time of just 7.3 seconds.

The CUPRA Born has already been named a finalist for European Car Of The Year 2022, such is the impact this car has made on the industry.

2. Dacia Bigster

New Dacia Bigster
  • Estimated price: £20,000
  • On sale: 2022

Romanian manufacturer Dacia has always been renowned for making the UK’s cheapest new car – the Sandero.

But here we’ve got an entirely different kind of beast, quite literally. The ‘Bigster’, as it’s aptly named, is a large SUV that is set to be one of the cheapest available when it’s released.

As you can see from the image above, however, there’s nothing about the Bigster which screams ‘cheap’. Just like the new Sandero, the new Bigster is based on the same CMF-8 underpinnings which led to it winning multiple awards.

Another impressive thing about the Bigster is its engine options. A 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine and a 1.3-litre four cylinder unit with 128bhp are expected to be the options, so you’re bound to get that same value-for-money offering that’s always running through Dacia’s models.

3. BMW M2

The new bmw m2 cs
  • Estimated price: £60,000
  • On sale: 2022

Before you think the car above is the one in question, hold your horses.

That is the current BMW M2 CS (“Competition Sport”), whereas the 2 Series Coupe variant expected to arrive in 2022 is a different high-performance M2.

We don’t know a great deal about how it will look, but according to BMW it will feature the following:

  • A 3.0-litre straight-six unit producing a punchy 400bhp
  • Rear-wheel drive and a manual gearbox
  • Automatic gearbox will be available

The new M2 is expected to compete with the Audi RS 3 and Mercedes-AMG 45 S hot hatches. However, its option of a manual gearbox is likely going to be more of an attractive offering for those looking to get hold of a true drivers’ car.

4. Dacia Jogger

All New Dacia Jogger
  • Estimated price: £15,000
  • On sale: 2022

Another Dacia makes our list of ‘ones to watch’ in 2022.

This time, we’ve got the seven-seater ‘Jogger’, which will (not surprisingly) be the cheapest one on the market when it goes on sale.

The Jogger’s rugged looks and MPV style blends will with modern features, so as to promise a vehicle that really is ‘no-nonsense’. Roof rails, a raised ride height and chunky tyres is bound to resonate with bigger families that want a car that can really do it all.

5. Citroen Ami

Citroen AMI in London
  • Estimated price: £6,000
  • On sale: 2022

This funky-looking thing is the Citroen Ami – a tiny two-seater electric car which is designed for inner-city driving.

As you can see from the picture above, the Ami is going to be perfect if your regular commutes are confined to urban environments. That’s because it has a meagre 8bhp electric motor and mini 5.5kWh battery.

Don’t be fooled though, because it’s perfect when you take it into the city. It has a max speed of 28mph and a range of up to 46 miles between charges.

The good news? You can charge the Ami using either a standard electric car charger, or you can use the EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) cable which has a Type-2-to-three-pin plug that can be charged from a normal socket. Regardless of which one you choose, the Ami can be fully charged in around three hours from either of them.

Citroen will offer leasing deals for the Ami that are rumoured to be as little as a mobile-phone payment if you put down enough of an initial payment.
