Lincoln's new Aviator is the hit of this week's 2018 New York auto show. It's due on sale next year and will bring with it a new rear-wheel-drive platform and a plug-in hybrid option. The latter is expected to put some supercar powertrains to shame.

Another popular reveal was that of the Cadillac XT4, a compact crossover SUV to target the BMW X1 and Audi Q3. It's been announced with only a turbo-4 so far, but a plug-in hybrid option is expected to join the range eventually.

Audi used the show to reveal the first-ever RS 5 Sportback. It packs all of the panache of the RS 5 coupe into a much more practical form factor.
