Are you looking for a new car for 2022?

We have selected some of the best new cars by hand that will arrive in showrooms next year.

From Volkswagen electric city engines to Ferrari’s turbocharged supercars, there’s a lot to get excited about for the new year.

Read on below to see what to look for:

Volkswagen ID Buzz

The car world is full of the same SUVs and crossovers, so the VW Buzz will come as a breath of fresh air for anyone who wants a change.

Inspired by the original VW Microbus, the ID Buzz is a fully electric minibus with exterior dimensions on par with the VW Golf and interior space to compete with the larger Passat.

It has seven seats and a flat floor that allows those seats to be moved in many ways to make the space to your individual needs.

Battery-powered, it will deliver a range of about 340 miles, with a decent 111kWh battery, and will be all-wheel drive. More importantly, it also looks cool.

Expect to see the VW ID Buzz in both passenger and commercial car formats by the end of 2022.

Price tba, expect around £ 34,000

Range Rover

The latest iteration of the Range Rover promises to be as neat, desirable and luxurious as the model has ever been – at least for its target audience.

This new edition is noticeably smoother and slimmer than before, with smooth, unfussy surfaces. The interior is also set to be enormously spacious thanks to a new option for seven seats, with increased luxury that comes with housing of new materials, including optional ceramic knobs and switches.

Of course, it also promises to drive as smoothly as ever, and will not lack off-road capacity.

If you want a car that goes everywhere and does everything in absolute luxury, then keep an eye on it.

Ferrari 296 GTB

No new year is complete without an offer from the Prancing Horse and we expect a real spectacle in 2022.

The Ferrari 296 GTB promises to be the company’s entry-level supercar and will use a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine and plug-in hybrid power to produce a full 819hp and 740Nm of torque.

That should allow a 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of more than 205 mph.

Interestingly, its 7.4kWh battery pack also lets the car run quietly for about 15 miles on electric power alone, so you don’t have to wake anyone up when you go for a quick blast on a Sunday morning.

Price tba, expect around £ 260,000

Mercedes SL

Sales of the Mercedes SL have declined in recent years, but that looks to be the case
to change with the advent of a blazing seventh-generation model.

The new SL will feature a coupe body style, a convertible roof and four seats – two good benches for the adults at the front and two for anyone under 5ft at the rear.

It will not be embarrassed when it comes to deploying its performance – the new SL will use a 4.0-liter V8 engine, tucked under that long hood, creating a minimum of 476hp.

A plug-in hybrid model is also in the works and promises more than 800 hp.

Price tba, expect around £ 100.00


Ask the car doctor: Cazoo car editor Phill Tromans

How often should I check my tire pressure?

Different cars require different tire pressures, and the correct settings for you will be written on a label on the body or in its manual.

At any time of the year, it is really essential to check your tire pressure, ideally every two weeks or at least once a month.

Many people ignore it, but remember that your tires are the only part of your car that is in contact with the road (unless something has seriously gone wrong). Improper pressure will wear your tires invalid and can also give you less grip.

Winter temperatures can mean that your tire pressure drops faster than in summer, so it’s even more important to check them often.

Adhere to the manufacturer’s recommended levels and check them outside then in a warm garage.
