A new generation of the Audi TT RS hits showrooms this spring. The car, which during testing was benchmarked against a Lotus Evora 400, Mercedes-AMG A45 and a Porsche Cayman GT4, will only be available as a coupe, and this time around there’s no manual transmission.

Another car hitting showrooms soon is Buick’s next-generation Regal. This time around the car will be available in two body styles, and neither of them is a sedan.

Yet another new model in the headlines today is the Mercedes-AMG GLC63. There’s both the standard GLC63 and more dynamically styled GLC63 Coupe, and regardless of which you get there’s a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 under the hood. It’s a breath of fresh air in an age of engine downsizing and emissions regs.
