2017 New Cars Calendar: The new models coming to Australia this year – UPDATE


Last year was a huge one for new-model launches in Australia, with 2016 seeing the heroic new Ford Mustang land in January, before rolling through to the impressive new Subaru Impreza that made its media debut in late December.

Of course, many, many more new offerings appeared between.

The past year of international unveilings has also shown that 2017 promises to be a big year in its own right! We’ll see Maserati’s first SUV, the Levante, in January, while the other end of the year will give us Kia’s big new rear-wheel-drive ‘GT’ sedan.

What can we expect in 2017? Catch our list below of newly launched models and everything that’s still to come. Everything we know about right now, that is!

We’ll update this page as the weeks and months roll by, with many models still to be given firm launch dates. And, while the details here have been confirmed by each brand, there are no doubt many models still to be announced – and don’t be surprised if launch dates shift over time.

The list below begins with month-by-month confirmed launches, before spreading out to the more vague ‘quarter’ and ‘half’ confirmations that each brand has offered.
