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.

The 2020 Mercedes GLS Arrives With a Twin-Turbo V-8 and Seating for Seven

The 2020 Mercedes GLS Arrives With a Twin-Turbo V-8 and Seating for Seven

The GLS retains boxy proportions but looks and goes better than ever

The biggest SUV in the Mercedes-Benz lineup is back and it’s now bigger than ever. The wheelbase is longer so all three rows get more room, thus making a six-seater version possible, and if it’s cargo space you’re after, the 2020 GLS delivers up to 95.3 cubic-feet of storage area. Another first is the introduction of the GLS 580 4Matic that features an electrified and twin-turbocharged V-8 with 489 horsepower on tap and the EQ Boost starter-generator.

European manufacturers are again trying to beat Americans at their own game. This time, the name of the game isn’t pick-up trucks, but full-size SUVs. When you think of such elevated land yachts, you’re probably picturing a Cadillac Escalade or a Lincoln Navigator in your head but BMW and, now, Mercedes-Benz are vying to change that image in your head. If BMW is trying to tempt you with the vehicle with the single largest twin kidney grilles in the history of mankind, Mercedes is a little bit more subtle with the 2020 GLS, a car built in Alabama that packs all the luxury features that America likes and then some. Also, it looks less like a bus in comparison to the Navigator.

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.

The Habaniro is Kia's Spicy New Crossover Concept

The Habaniro is Kia’s Spicy New Crossover Concept

It’s the "everyday" concept we didn’t know we wanted

Kia’s been on a roll with its concept vehicles lately. A month after unveiling the “Imagine by Kia” Concept and its 21 digital screens at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Korean automaker took its traveling concept carnival to New York where it unveiled the Habaniro, a concept it claims is the world’s first-ever ECEV, as in “everyday car, electric vehicle.” The Habaniro is a bold concept. It’s also imaginative in terms of Kia’s vision for the future. Kia didn’t explicitly say that the Habaniro will never see the light of production day, but don’t expect it to arrive anytime soon. For now, the Habaniro is a concept that previews the direction Kia wants to take with its electrification and mobility efforts. Whether that future includes a production version of the Habaniro remains to be seen, but it’d be nice to wish for it, right?

The 2020 Nissan GT-R 50th Edition Honors the GT-R Legacy in All the Right Ways

There’s no better way to celebrate Godzilla’s 50th birthday than by bridging the past with the future

Fifty years ago, Nissan introduced the Skyline as a four-door sedan in its home market of Japan. Nobody knew it at that time, Nissan included, but in the course of the next half-century, The Skyline would give birth to what is arguably the most iconic Japanese supercar of all time, Godzilla itself, the Nissan GT-R. Nissan is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the GT-R’s roots with the debut of the Nissan 50th Anniversary GT-R at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The 50th Anniversary GT-R isn’t a special edition model in the traditional sense. Instead, Nissan is offering the anniversary treatment in the form of an appearance package for the 2020 GT-R. Nissan has yet to release pricing and availability options for the 50th Anniversary GT-R, but seeing as the model is making its debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show, it’s safe to say that we’re going to get our hands on the model, or at least the appearance package that turns the GT-R into the 50th Anniversary model.
