The 2020 Tesla Model Y Is About to Debut, Watch It Live With Us!
There seems to be no shortage of controversy and scandal surrounding Tesla these days. But honestly, at this point that’s just par for the course. So, rather than pumping the brakes, it’s full speed ahead with yet another debut. Say hello to the 2020 Tesla Model Y, a more-affordable compact crossover that looks to bring all-electric practicality to the masses.
Best Cars for Under $25,000
These days, all we hear about is how cars are dying a slow, agonizing death as the SUVs and crossovers are taking over the world. However, people forget that there are still a lot of cars that are worth every penny you spend. Although crossovers have invaded every segment in the industry today by appearing in various sizes (and shapes), we firmly believe that sedans should still be in contention for your next purchase. You don’t have to spend a bomb to get a car of your dreams. With growing competition and ever-changing technology, cars these days have everything you can ask for. Here, we have compiled a list of the ten best new cars for under $25,000.
The 2020 Tesla Model Y Might Help to Introduce New Battery Technology
Without a doubt, the biggest hurdle to widespread EV adoption is the current battery technology standard, specifically range-per-charge and the time it takes to top off at the plug. At the end of the day, cars are all about convenience, and if it takes too long to get from A to B, it doesn’t really matter how good a car looks or how quick it’ll hit 60 mph. For now, Tesla’s Supercharger system will provide 170 miles in about 30 minutes - not bad for an EV, but nowhere near the kind of miles-per-minute you get with internal combustion and a gas pump. Electric vehicle battery technology needs a level up, and the debut of the 2020 Tesla Model Y could provide a perfect opportunity for exactly that.

A dog and an F1 car in the same video? *Inserts a ’Shut up and take all my money’ meme*

Designed by the team headed by Achim Anscheidt, Bugatti’s Director of Design, the 2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire represents the ultimate execution in coach building.

I will tell you all about the most refreshing, strangest, and most incredible facts of the new Bugatti La Voiture Noire.
If the 2020 Tesla Model Y Is a Success, How Will Tesla Handle Production?
When Tesla debuted the Model 3 compact sedan back in 2016, it managed to accumulate some 400,000 pre-orders in just a matter of weeks. And while most automakers would salivate at the mere thought of generating that kind of demand, Tesla struggled to ramp up production to fill all those orders. Now, with the imminent arrival of the 2020 Tesla Model Y, the brand’s new high-volume compact crossover, it looks as though Tesla might have a much easier time keeping its promises.
2020 Porsche Macan S
The company’s smallest crossover yet, the Porsche Macan arrived in 2014 and slotted under the highly popular Cayenne. After four years on the market, the compact SUV was updated to mid-cycle specifications. The Macan S is very similar to the base model we saw hit the spotlight earlier in 2018 on the outside. It’s identical inside the cabin as well save for the trim-specific features. However, it’s a different story under the hood, as the "S" badge comes in tow with a larger, 3.0-liter V-6. What’s more, while the four-banger lost a few horses with the facelift, the V-6 delivers a bit more power and torque.

2020 Ginetta Akula
British race- and sports-car builder Ginetta attended the 2019 Geneva Motor Show with its latest creation, the Akula. Named after the Russian word that translates to “shark,” the Akula looks every bit like an asphalt predator. The Akula combines an attention-grabbing design with a low-weight carbon-intensive construction and Le Mans-derived performance equipment. That’s an excellent formula for a niche model that’s looking to strike down the titans of its segment. Can the Ginetta Akula do it? We’re going to find out.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class
Mercedes-Benz has pulled the covers off of the updated GLC-Class ahead of its world debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The premium compact crossover is on the receiving end of improved aesthetics and a fruit basket’s worth of new tech features. Mercedes has always touted the GLC-Class as a fresh gateway model to some of its more premium SUVs, and, for the most part, the updated model looks the part of one. Following its debut in Geneva, the GLC-Class will go on sale in Europe in the middle of the year. As for us in the U.S., you’ll have to wait a little longer as the crossover isn’t scheduled to hit our shores until the latter part of 2019.

The Volkswagen I.D. EV Will Launch This Year as the Next-Gen Golf Gets Shelved Until 2020
The Volkswagen Golf is a true automotive phenomenon so when there’s a new one on the way; you can bet everyone is eagerly waiting for it. We’ve already seen mules out on the open road, but the now-2021 Volkswagen Golf 8 won’t be here until next year as Volkswagen prepares to unveil the first model from itsI.D. family of EVs that is slated to become a hit.
The German giant from Wolfsburg has been dropping hints on the 2021 Golf for a while now, but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see the refreshed version of the best-selling car in Europe. Why? Well, Volkswagen needs extra time to fix some last-minute things on the Golf, and this would push the release date well past what was originally planned, namely to have the car at the Frankfurt Auto Show. A launch event on the eve of the holiday season isn’t what Volkswagen wants for the Golf, apparently.
2019 Renault Clio
The much anticipated new 2019 Renault Clio city car finally showed its face. In an effort to move towards the premium spectrum of the city car segment (you know, where the A1 and the Mini reside), the new Renault Clio gained many of the design traits from the latest line of Renault vehicles such as the Talisman sedan and the Megane hatch. It showed its face before the imminent reveal at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year and it is a fundamentally better car than before. Yet, with the new platform, new engines, new interior, and new dimensions come new thinking as well. The new Clio is actually shorter compared to the predecessor. Lower too. But roomier inside. Somehow, Renault engineers achieved the Tardis effect with the new Cio and I will tell you how. First things first. Why the hell does it look so similar to its predecessor?
