To be launchinga new model, every week, but it's been surprisinglyquiet of late. Probably the biggest newsconcerns its smallest sedan. The new A3 should arrivefor the 2022 model year to do battle with MercedesA-Class and BMW 2 Series. It'll be no, surpriseto learn that it mimics the style of thelarger A4, A6, and A8 both inside and out. Expect. A 2-liter turbo 4 atkick-off with, sporty S3 and RS3 versions to follow. Audi is also being talkingup its e-tron electric range, where fans of both the SUV andthe more coupe-like Sportback. But the biggestnews in 2021 might, be the arrival of the productionversion of the GT Sedan we drove in conceptform last year. That should keep theTeslarati busy on Twitter., [MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS, LAGO: If you've everwatched the 30-minute new car rundown on YouTube toget shopping advice on a $200,000 luxury SUV,go ahead leave a, comment down below. We'll call out theBentley Bentayga because it's our toprated super luxury SUV and it gets a, fewupdates for 2021.

If the older screen anddesign were holding you back, now is your chanceto get a Bentayga. [MUSIC, PLAYING] ALLISTAIR WEAVER:New for '21 from BMW? That would be the4 Series complete with one the mostcontroversial grills ever to grace an. Automobile. We're all for a bit ofdistinctive design, but really? It's being comparedto a walrus, which is a bit. Tough on ourflippant friend, to be honest. If it's your thing, the. 4Series costs from $45,000 and shares oily bitswith the 3 Series. Boasting up to 503 horsepowerin competition trim, the M car should befast enough to justify a price tag of around, $70,000. Nice to see the optionof a manual gearbox too. At the other end of thespectrum is the BMW iX, revealed recently, as I aminteresting looking concept. At least what'sunderneath has appeal. BMW says the iX packstwo electric motors good. For 500 horsepowercombined with a range of around 300 miles. We expect to see theproduction version unveiled before the. End of 2021. [MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS LAGO: Wewouldn't fault anyone who couldn't remember the2020 previous Buick Envision but that could changefor the 2021 model.

It should line up againstother small luxury SUVs like the Acura RDXand Lincoln. Corsair. Outside of basic specs like theengine being a turbo 2-liter and the transmissionbeing a 9-speed automatic, we don't have a lot ofinfo yet, so, check back in early 2021 for more. [MUSIC PLAYING] ALLISTAIR WEAVER: Lastyear I drove a prototype version of the Byton M-Byte EVand came away pretty impressed.. But since then, it's allgone a bit pear-shaped with the company'sfinancial, woes compounded by the pandemic. Who knows when or even ifwe'll see a production version, but we certainly hope so. It's a nice thing. [MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS LAGO: The bigaddition to Cadillac for. 2021 is the redesigned Escalade. Like the new Tahoe,Suburban,.
