Subaru

What: BRZ
Variants: 2.4 
When: Q1
How Much : TBA

Subaru’s version of the Toyobaru twins is scheduled to reach our shores in the first quarter of 2022, and the next generation version of this modern lightweight coupe features even more power than its predecessor. It also boasts a lower centre of gravity, further enhancing its reputation as one of the best handling cars you can buy new.

A new 2.4-litre naturally aspirated engine develops 228hp and 250Nm of torque, representing a 15 percent increase from the previous car. Subaru also says that the torque comes in at the lower end of the rev range, resulting in better responsiveness and improved acceleration. For more info, see the Toyota GR86, which is the twin to this car. 

What: Forester e-Boxer facelift
Variants: Forester e-Boxer, Forester e-Boxer GT
When: Q2
How Much : TBA

Subaru’s Forester is expected to receive a mid-life facelift in the second quarter of the year, with cosmetic updates and improved tech. The underlying drivetrain remains unchanged, which means the e-Boxer hybrid variant retains its 2.0-litre boxer four engine with 150hp and 196Nm of torque.

The key changes to the Forester include redesigned headlamps, grille, front bumpers, fog lamps and wheels, while there are also three new body colours to choose from. Practical enhancements include a new gesture control function to adjust the car’s air con, as well as more cargo hooks in the boot.

The facelifted Forester will also incorporate an updated version of its EyeSight driver assistance technologies, first featured on the Outback, while there will also be minor improvements to the car’s X-Mode all-wheel-drive system, as well as the car’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gearbox.


Suzuki

What: S-Cross
Variants: 1.4 turbo mild hybrid, full hybrid
When: Q4
How Much: from S$120k with COE 
Suzuki’s third-gen small SUV should be landing here in late 2022. The S-Cross has been a decent seller for Suzuki in the past, and the new one looks to raise eyebrows and please with advanced tech at the same time. It’s been totally redesigned and will have a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine with mild hybrid capability – as also shown on the current Swift Sport and Swift hatchback

130hp from the engine, with additional e-boost, should give the car great city manners, and it’s claimed to deliver sub-6.0L/100km fuel economy. Spec details aren’t firmed up yet, but we could expect a 7.0-inch or 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Suzuki’s active safety features, as seen on the tiny but cute Ignis. Later on a ‘strong hybrid’ (to use Suzuki’s term) version will be produced. As usual, more details in our online story on it to be found here


Tesla


What: Model Y 
Variants: Long Range, Performance 
When: Q1 
How Much:  From S$200,000 with COE

As we write this, the Tesla Model Y is currently undergoing homologation with the LTA, so we can expect it to launch some time in the first quarter of 2022. The Model Y is the Model 3’s sister car – it’s a midsized SUV, around the same length as a BMW X3. But it doesn’t look SUV-ish, it’s more of a high-riding fastback. What will make the car a decent seller here is the Tesla craze, but also the optional third-row pair of seats. Currently, there is no entry-level ‘Standard Range’ model, but the US has two AWD twin-motor models on sale, the Long Range and the Performance. Both will offer a quoted range of at least 480km, and the usual quick straightline performance, and the 15-inch touchscreen dominated cockpit Teslas have become known for.
