Land Rover has a new Range Rover Evoque whose design is very close to that of its predecessor. After driving it, though, we found it to be vastly improved, thanks mostly to the tweaks made to the standard 9-speed automatic transmission.

One car we're looking forward to testing is the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, the soft-roader, wagon version of the upcoming Taycan electric sport sedan. Our latest spy shots show the Taycan Cross Turismo testing at the Nürburgring.

Another vehicle testing is the long-awaited SSC Tuatara. Recently, the all-American hypercar got strapped to a dyno and SSC was kind enough to film the event. The car's 1,750-horsepower engine sounds divine.
