New year, new cars. If the ongoing Singapore Motorshow 2018 is anything to go by, it’s worth getting excited if you’re in the market for a fresh ride, thanks to new offerings by some of the world’s major car manufacturers.

This goes beyond updating long-standing favourites. All-new designs come in wide and varied line-ups, each challenging the engines, technology and designs that we know today. If trends are anything to go by, semi-autonomous driving continues to be a big part of innovation in these cars, alongside electrification and hybridisation.

Of course, the best way to get up close and personal with these cars is by visiting the show. Happening at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre from today till 14 January 2018, the Singapore Motorshow 2018 will house 24 exciting new models such as Infiniti, Lexus, Volkswagen and Porsche. Expect a diverse record of new cars ranging from family-oriented hatchbacks to a special edition coupe. Then there’s the updated Audi that’s set to rival the new Mercedes S-Class, and a Kia that surprises with looks and performance (it’s even got a segment on The Grand Tour).

We hope you’ve got your cheque books ready. Here are the new cars to start placing for your orders for, pronto.
