2014 NAIAS: Kia GT4 Stinger Concept

Kia claims that they have shocked Detroit with this concept, I take issue with that; Kia has been in the habit of producing good looking rear wheel drive sports car concepts for a while, but this Stinger, a 20th US birthday present for Kia, certainly isn’t a problem for the eyes. Finished in a bright […]

2014 NAIAS: Cadillac ATS Coupe: Predictable, but that’s a good thing.

Cadillac has pulled the wraps off their latest: the wreathless ATS two-door. The smallest and most tossable of their current offerings has the BMW 4 series in mind: Cadillac even mentions the 428i in their press release. On the most simple level, power levels are similar: a 2 liter four offers up 272 hp/295 ft-lbs […]

2014 NAIAS: Lexus punches hard with the 2015 RC F

Lexus has made a very concerted effort of dispel any notion that they are merely yet another luxury brand, and this car is proof: the somewhat polarizing nose that graces much of the Lexus line is perhaps the most pronounced in this, the RC F. Designed to go up against the likes of the BMW […]

2014 NAIAS: Infiniti finally spills the beans on the Q50 Eau Rouge

Infiniti showcased their new Q50 Eau Rouge Concept today on the floor of the Cobo Center in the heart of Detroit.

2014 NAIAS: 2015 Hyundai Genesis visits Detroit

Hyundai say that this is a premiere for North America, but this car was shown at 2014 CES not that long ago; new powertrain details were announced though: the all-new luxury sedan comes in at less than $40,000 and offers a new, optional, all wheel drive system.

2014 NAIAS: Allroad Shooting Brake Concept attracts attention

Audi released its latest foray into politically correct cars with this, the Allroad Shooting Brake plug in hybrid. Perhaps most striking for its layout, the lifted 3-door is not the first in a trend of lifted three door concepts such as the Volvo XC concept coupe. Allegedly highly functional for recreational sports, the concept seems […]

2014 NAIAS: Honda’s 2015 Fit: All new, sort of.

Honda has pulled the wraps of their latest iteration of their Prius-lite alternative. Granola brandishing children from sea to see will likely rejoice over the added power, rigidity, and improved fuel economy, and very similar, but all-new components.
