Revving Up Down Under: New Cars Coming to Australia in 2024

As car enthusiasts, we love repairing old gems. But we do know that in some instances, a new car is hard to beat. In recent years, ne w car launches have been marred by delays in supply chains and semiconductor chip shortages. But with those issues starting to settle, there is plenty to be excited about when it comes to the new cars coming to Australia in 2024. So what should you be on the lookout for?

Ford Mustang

Delayed locally due to production issues, the Ford Mustang will be among the most hotly anticipated new car launches in 2024.

The new generation mustang will come with a 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder engine along with its trademark sports style.

Toyota HiLux 48V

Due in the first half of 2024 will be the new Toyota HiLux featuring 48-volt mild-hybrid technology.

The system will power the existing 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission. It will be standard on all dual-cab 4×4 SR5 and Rogue models and optional on the dual-cab 4×4 SR.

Mitsubishi Triton

A competitor to the ute market is the Mitsubishi Triton, expected in early next year. The Triton will include a town-turbo 2.4-litre diesel engine and a 3500kg towing capacity.

With these features, it’s likely the Triton will be a popular competitor to the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux.

Kia Sportage Hybrid

Here to challenge the popular RAV4 Hybrid is the Kia Sportage Hybrid, expected in Australia in early 2024.

The Sportage Hybrid will feature a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine paired with a 44.2kW electric motor.

At launch, the GX will be available with a 3.5-litre twin-turbo petrol V6 with a 10-speed automatic


Electric vehicles

Electric vehicles (EV)are being rapidly embraced by car manufacturers, providing even more choice for Australian consumers. 2024 will prove no different, with plenty of exciting electric cars landing on our shores.

Jeep Avenger

Jeeps may have a reputation for off-road but the upcoming Jeep Avenger – the first EV for the brand – is focused on more urban challengers.  The small compact SUV is powered by a single electric motor that drives the front wheels.

Featuring a lithium-ion battery, the Avenger has a 400km driving range and ability to fast charge at a rate of up to 100kW.

Toyota bZ4X

Hotly anticipated, the Toyota bZ4X electric vehicle is expected to arrive in Australia in February last year.

Another medium SUV, the bZ4X has a range of up to 516km and is likely to be a big contender from arguably Australia’s most popular car brand.

Audi Q4 e-tron

Expected in mid-2024 is Audi’s most affordable electric car. The luxury SUV is based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform, providing around 550km of driving range.



Hyundai Kona Electric

The second generation of the Hyundai Kona Electric has been specially developed as an EV and then adapted for internal combustion drivetrains – a unique process which should make the Kona a better EV.

Much of the detail around the compact SUV is still a secret but there will be two powertrains and two battery choices, with the largest offering roughly 500km of range.
