  • Audi Q4 e-tron concept teaser sketch

    While Audi has confirmed the brand will introduce a gasoline-powered Q4 crossover to slot between the Q3 and Q5 models, the brand will present an electric Q4 e-tron concept at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The German luxury marque didn't share many details, but provided two sketches of the concept and said the Q4 e-tron concept previews a production model to come. We expect the standard Q4 will arrive in the second half of 2019 and launch in the United States for the 2021 model year. Audi currently pegs the Q4 e-tron to show up in production form in either late 2020 or early 2021...

    2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road is a small crossover scrapper that only Toyota could make

    Back when it was a new thing and the Backstreet Boys were still (mostly) minors, the Toyota RAV4 was a plucky off-roader with potential from an automaker that had a good pedigree for making small 'utes with spunk. Then success, popularity, and age took its toll on the RAV4 (and the Backstreet Boys)...

But when we look above that, we've got some great product today, but what do those products look like for the future?" Carl Sewell III, who is outgoing chairman of the Lexus National Dealer Advisory Council, told Automotive News last month. The gray elephant in the...

  • 2019 Honda Passport, 2018 LA Auto Show

However, the Passport is six inches shorter than the Pilot and has seating for five in two rows, unlike the three-row Pilot. The new Passport will come standard with front-wheel drive and will offer all-wheel drive with a handful of slippery conditions traction modes as an option. Honda's 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 280 horsepower in the Passport shuttles...
