If Volkswagen Brings the Tarok to The United States, It’ll Carry a Price Tag in the Mid-$20,000 Range

But is it actually coming to the U.S. soon?

Volkswagen brought the Tarok pickup truck concept to the 2019 New York Auto Show before its production debut in South America saying that it has no plans to sell it in the U.S. However, Volkswagen of America CEO Scott Keogh says that the Tarok would make sense in North America with "an extremely smart price point."

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Debuts With a Look That Proves It's Stepped Into the Premium Segment

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Debuts With a Look That Proves It’s Stepped Into the Premium Segment

Smooth Looking 2020 Sonata Takes The Hyundai Design And Character To A Whole Another Level

As one of the most essential Hyundai sedans, the new 2020 Hyundai Sonata debut marks a pivotal moment for the Hyundai brand. With a revolutionary and bold design, new technology on board, and all-new architecture under the metal, some would even say that the Sonata reaches for the premium segment. While completely redesigned, and now inspired by the gorgeous Le Fil Rouge concept, the Sonata features a few bold styling novelties we have never seen before. More importantly, Hyundai stretched its wheelbase and length a little bit, while lowering the car as a whole. This is the trick everyone takes into account when making a clean, planted car. As a final touch, Hyundai reworked the interior to offer significantly more upscale ambiance and equipment.

Alfa Romeo Drops Special Edition Giulia and Stelvio at The New York Auto Show

Alfa Romeo Drops Special Edition Giulia and Stelvio at The New York Auto Show

Both special edition models will be available in the U.S. by the time summer season hits

Alfa Romeo didn’t have a bombshell at the 2019 New York Auto Show. It didn’t even have a new concept to showcase. Instead, the Italian automaker brought with it a pair of special editions for its two workhorses: the Guilia Quadrifoglio sedan and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio SUV. The two models are called the Nring Editions, a loose reference to the Nurburgring where Alfa Romeo has a rich history of racing victories and record-setting lap times. Ironically, neither the Guilia Quadrifoglio Nring Edition nor its Stelvio counterpart boast any engine upgrades. The good news is that both special editions are loaded on exterior and interior upgrades, which is the point of their existence in the first place. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Nring Edition costs $97,485 (including the $1,595 destination fee), while the Giulia Quadrifoglio Nring Edition sells for $91,485. Both special edition models will be on sale in the U.S. beginning in the second quarter of 2019.

Stunning Nio ET Preview Concept Would Be A Win For The U.S.

Stunning Nio ET Preview Concept Would Be A Win For The U.S.

The Nio ET Preview Concept Is A Beautifull Sedan That We Will Not Get

Starting its operations in 2014, Chinese car company Nio already reached the spotlight of the car industry. At the2019 Shanghai Auto Show, it revealed the elegant sedan-coupe called the ET Preview Concept, but you may have heard about it after the Nio EP9 set a Nurburgring lap record for electric cars. While the Nio only sells one electric SUV in China (more than 10,000 of them are on the roads), the ET Preview Concept is a rather surprising proposition for the future. In Shanghai, almost everyone revealed some sort of electric SUV, but Nio went with a fastback sedan. It is the one to compete with the likes of the Tesla Model S and the new Polestar 2. I will go on a limb here and say that it looks better than any one of them.

The 2020 Karma Revero GT Features 535 Horsepower of BMW-Powered Goodness

The 2020 Karma Revero GT Features 535 Horsepower of BMW-Powered Goodness

The Karma is reincarnated, but can it overcome the actions of its previous life?

The Karma nameplate has a rather checkered past, first appearing on an ill-fated hybrid GT sedan from Fisker Automotive in the late 2000s. After Fisker Automotive went bankrupt in 2013, the China-based Wanxiang Group Corporation purchased the assets, renamed the company Karma Automotive, and set about fixing the vehicle’s many lingering issues. Now, five years later at Auto Shanghai, Karma Automotive is ready to reveal the fruits of its labor with three new models that springboard off the original Karma’s impressive design.
