the 23 cars that will be the talk of the town in 2023

Despite the increasing number of production delays due to the semiconductor crisis, 2023 is shaping up to be a year rich in automotive innovations. Let’s take a look at the 23 stars that will make 2023.

Restyled Alpine A110

Nearly six years after its launch, the Berlinette should mainly modernize its front end and small parts of its stern. What about the dashboard, its biggest flaw in terms of quality? Let’s hope that a skilful update will succeed in raising its standing


The emblematic mid-range is entitled to a diabolical M5 that will convert to hybridisation. To compensate for its logical weight gain, it intends to claim more than 750 hp, in order to offer a level of performance equal or superior to the current one.

Citro├źn C3

Positioned halfway between the Dacia Spring Electric and the Sandero, in terms of size, it will be offered in both combustion and electric versions. The 1.2 PureTech 83 hp engine will meet the needs of those who are used to unleaded gasoline, while the 100% electric C3 will be more pampered with two power levels: 60 and 80 kW. The two electric motors can be powered by a 40 or 50 kWh battery to achieve a range of up to 400 km.

Cupra Formentor restyled

Despite its relative youth, it will undergo a facelift to better distinguish itself from the Seat Leon, from which it is closely derived. The grille that currently separates the headlights will be removed and the snout will look like a shark, leaving the lower part of the bumper to act as a gaping mouth.

Dacia Jogger hybrid

140 hp is a lot of horsepower for a Dacia, and it’s a perfect fit for a model that can carry up to seven passengers. The Jogger Hybrid will be powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.6-cylinder engine backed by a small electric motor driven by a battery with a capacity of only 1.2 kWh.

Ferrari Roma Spider

Logically, this Ferrari Roma Spider will use the 620 hp 4.0-liter V8 block from the coupe, which has already been adopted by the Portofino M, which it will replace in the catalog.

Fiat 600

Inheriting the technical underpinnings of the Jeep Avenger, this pocket SUV promises to be the smallest of its kind in the Stellantis galaxy (about 4 meters long). Thus, it will turn its back on the platform of the electric 500, developed during the Fiat-Chrysler era, preferring the new 156 hp electromotor associated with a battery greater than 50 kWh to reach 400 km of autonomy.

Lamborghini Aventador

The Aventador’s replacement, whose name is not yet known, will have to be electrified. But the sine qua non condition for this ecological impulse remains the survival of its V12. Backed up by an electric motor, it could give this future PHEV competitor of the Ferrari SF90 nearly 900 hp.

Lotus Envya

For the sake of internal synergies, the first-ever sedan from the British craftsman will adopt the underpinnings of the Eletre SUV, in a configuration that is likely to be slightly shorter, with the larger SUV stretching to 5.10 meters. The Envya will probably come close to the sizes shown by the Porsche Taycan, Audi e-tron GT and especially Tesla Model S, its most serious rival.

Maserati GranCabrio

Recently, the GranTurismo coupe has made a comeback under various architectures, including a 100% electric one. A legendary icon that will surely be uncapped in the coming months to perpetuate the GranCabrio name, with 760 hp to boot.

Peugeot 208 restyled

Released in 2019, it will proceed this year to a facelift that will result in the redesign of the grille, flanked by the new house coat of arms. A new air intake, widely scalloped, brought to overhang a new bumper, while the stern should be content to correct the light signatures. Under the hood, it will extend its electrification range by hybridizing its thermal blocks to 48V. As for its 100% electric variant, the e-208 will gain 20 hp to reach 156 hp, while its battery capacity will increase slightly to reach 400 km WLTP.
