  • 2019 Jaguar I-Pace

The automaker’s 2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric car made its U.S. debut this week at the 2018 New York auto show and its designer Wayne Burgess said that drawing the I-Pace required him to skip what made his Aston Martin DB9 and Jaguar F-Types universally admired. “If I were to design an electric sports car or supercar, I would make it as cab-forward as I could—what’s not to love about a Lamborghini Countach? Or a Series 1 Lotus Esprit? I think you can get a really, really exciting electric...

Though Alfa Romeo isn't calling it "black", the dark shade is being welcomed and embraced on the Giulia and Stelvio. Specifically, it's the 2.0-liter turbocharged versions that will now be made available with the new Nero Edizione package, unveiled on Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show. On the Stelvio, a set of 20-inch aluminum wheels wear a special shade called Dark...

At its local debut Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show, the K900 showed off its tight and handsome sedan profile with an equally luxurious cabin laden with technology. The K900 shares the Genesis G90's platform, and a familiar 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine provides the gusto with 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. Notably, Kia didn't mention the...

  • Classic Mini with electric powertrain

    Mini didn't have a new car to present at the 2018 New York auto show. Instead, it had an old one. A very old one.

Prototypes for the car have already been spotted testing. The electric version of the Alec Issigonis-designed icon is meant to convey Mini's commitment to retaining the brand’s unmistakable character while embracing modern powertrain technology.
