  • 2019 Acura RDX, 2018 New York auto show

    Cadillac's brand renaissance continued this week at the 2018 New York International Auto Show with the unveiling of the XT4 compact crossover SUV. The segment is booming right now and the XT4, with its combination of handsome styling, generous size, and sharp pricing, should prove a hit. Hyundai's new luxury brand Genesis continued its theme of revealing concepts at the N.Y. show. This year we were treated with the Essentia electric grand tourer. Though not destined for production, it may preview elements bound for Genesis' planned coupe due early next decade. Genesis is about to experience...

  • 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR
    Jaguar considers skipping R models in favor of SVR

    Jaguar dropped a wonderful bit of news at the 2018 NY auto show. The British automaker decided that stuffing a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 into the F-Pace makes good sense, and we're inclined to agree. That's how the compact crossover earned the SVR badge. But that also means Jaguar jumped right...

  • Genesis Essentia, 2018 New York auto show
    From concept to (virtual) reality: How the Genesis Essentia concept coupe came to be

    2019 Acura RDX video preview

    Acura has never risen to the lofty heights of its European rivals. Judging by the looks of the 2019 RDX, Acura might soon be considered with the best.

  • 2019 Kia K900, 2018 New York auto show

    Kia plunged into old-school luxury a few years ago with the big K900. Then it had a better idea: it sidetracked into BMW territory and came out with the terrific Stinger. Now it’s applied those lessons learned, as it revamps its most expensive model, the 2019 Kia K900. The new K900 strips away some of the formal lines and looks of the past. It’s a little wider and longer than the car it replaces, and it goes out of its way to distance itself from the closely related Genesis G90 sedan. It’s spare, clean, and if we’re honest, it’s a lot more like the plain-looking...

  • 2019 Jaguar I-Pace
    Jaguar interested in building I-Pace SVR

    The future may hold another performance-oriented Jaguar SVR model, but rather than one based on a raucous supercharged internal-combustion engine, the brand is reportedly considering an I-Pace SVR, based on its first purely electric SUV.
