The Hot List: all-new Top Gear magazine out now

This month’s TG mag brings you the 23 cars that matter in 2023

Published: 13 Jan 2023

Given the automotive events of the last few years, you’d be forgiven for not wanting to predict what will happen in 2023. And yet that’s exactly what we’ve done in this month’s new issue of Top Gear magazine…

Yep, we’ve stared into the TG tea leaves to bring you the 23 cars that’ll matter in 2023. See what we did there?

Firstly, it’s time to party like it’s 2014, because nine years on the hypercar holy trinity part deux is a distinct possibility. The AMG One we’ve already driven, while the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Gordon Murray T.50 are both tantalisingly close to completion. All we need to do now is get the keys to all three of them on the same day. Anyone seen the phone number for our insurers?

Meanwhile, is love for the electric hypercar dwindling before it’s even got going? Rumours of slow sales for Lotus and Pininfarina show that customers want a bit more than neck-bending acceleration for their £2m... and a flame-spitting combustion engine, twinned with a sprinkling of e-boost is currently, and will be for a while, the way to go.

Could the perennially unloved MPV be about to mount a comeback too? Our enduring want for VW’s ID.Buzz, Hyundai’s Staria (please bring it to the UK immediately) and Dacia Jogger says yes. Anything to save us from a future of wall-to-wall SUVs. And how about a turning point when you don’t have to choose between affordability, desirability and usability when buying an EV, you can have all three. If Renault can hit its target price of £20k and range of 250 miles for the new Renault 5, it could be transformational. 

Or maybe there’ll simply be an uprising of Elon’s humanoid Teslas, while AI chatbots steal all our jobs. Either way, it’s going be fun finding out.
