  • 2020 Hyundai Sonata, 2019 New York International Auto Show

    Wild speculation followed the debut of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata ahead of the 2019 New York International Auto Show, but it's true: a racier Sonata N-Line is in the pipeline. The South Korean automaker confirmed it will introduce a Sonata N-Line in 2020 with "over 275 horsepower," per Hyundai. The power figure is identical to the Veloster N, which features a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine. We've previously reported that the Sonata N-Line will feature a 2.5-liter turbo-4 engine. The confirmation of a Hyundai Sonata N-Line also leaves the door open for a proper Sonata N in the future. Hyundai is keen...

    2020 Hyundai Sonata ready to shine brightly

    The Hyundai Sonata received wide praise for its bold styling when it was redesigned for 2010. In 2016, that fanfare retreated when it received a rather conservative and buttoned-up look. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata lets its hair down once again and ushers in a dramatic new exterior design. Revealed...

  • 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC Edition 1886

    Contrary to popular belief, it was the company today known as Mercedes-Benz that put the first automobile into production. The year was 1886, and it would be a few more decades before Henry Ford implemented mass production that made automobiles a common sight. Nevertheless, 1886 is an important date for Mercedes and cars in general, and it's a date that defines the Mercedes-Benz EQC Edition 1886. Like the revolutionary automobile the company produced in the 19th century, the EQC, the brand's first volume electric car, marks a new milestone—one that begins the transition to an electric...

    2020 Cadillac CT5 coming with big shoes to fill

    Somewhere between Cadillac's inability to convince buyers it's a luxury brand on par with the Germans and buyers' increased preference for crossover SUVs, the Cadillac ATS and CTS have languished as great sport sedans that can't seem to find an audience.

    Pulling out of the 123-story Lotte World Tower into the crush of Seoul’s morning traffic in the 2020 Hyundai Sonata, the striking symbolism isn’t lost on me. The 1,819-foot tower is new, the fifth-tallest building in the world, and the tallest in Korea. This engineering marvel...

  • 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA35 AMG

    The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA hasn't even arrived in the U.S. yet and the brand's AMG performance division has already taken its first crack at the compact car with the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA35 AMG. With more power, an aggressive body kit, and a racier interior, the CLA35 will play the middle ground between the new CLA-Class and the even hotter upcoming CLA45 AMG. The 2020 CLA35 broke cover on Monday and is set to make its formal debut next week at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.

  • 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

    Porsche's Cayenne can soon be ordered in a sleeker, sportier shape thanks to the arrival of the 2020 Cayenne Coupe, which the German performance marque unveiled Thursday. Like other players in the segment, such as the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, the Cayenne Coupe sacrifices space in pursuit of a more dynamic design. Virtually everything from the A-pillars back is new, as the roof has been dropped 0.78 inches and flows toward a new tail fitted with an adaptive rear spoiler that works in conjunction with a roof-mounted spoiler. New rear doors and rear fenders also give the vehicle a...

    Porsche's 8 goals for the 2020 911

    Automakers often use focus groups made up of current owners to help them develop the next model of any given vehicle. They want to know what works and what doesn’t, so they “clinic it.” Porsche didn't bother with that for the 992-generation 911. Motor Authority spoke with August...
