Lexus will use next week’s 2017 New York auto show to unveil an F-Sport package for its latest LS. Rather than brute power, the package is aimed at improving the car’s ride and handling qualities.

The LS isn’t the only redesigned flagship sedan arriving this year. Audi has a redesigned A8 in the works and our latest spy shots and video reveal much more detail than ever before.

Hyundai’s new luxury brand Genesis is working on a plug-in hybrid and an electric car. The latter is to be a standalone alone model. It will be in addition to the six models already confirmed by the brand.

You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
