Mercedes-Benz's next-generation C-Class has been spotted for the first time. The small luxury sedan is still a few years out from its debut but we can already gather many details from the prototypes.

Arriving much sooner—this month in fact—is a full-size SUV from Hyundai. It will be called a Palisade and share a platform with the recently revealed Kia Telluride.

BMW M has confirmed that its new M8 based on the revived BMW 8-Series is entering the final stage of development. The high-performance coupe is due out next year and will pack a twin-turbocharged V-8 with over 600 horsepower.
