    By Steven J. Ewing on April 09, 2009 12 a.m.

    Kia debuted their new Forte sedan at this February's Chicago Auto Show, but we were hoping to see some more evolution of the Kia Koup Concept come through into production. Thus, a two-door Forte with the Koup name was brought for all to see at the New York Auto Show, squarely aimed at the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, and Scion tC.

  • First Look: 2010 Subaru Outback Gets Legacy Treatment (817 views)

    By Steven J. Ewing on April 09, 2009 12 a.m.

    Just like the Legacy sedan, the Subaru Outback receives some substantial updates for the 2010 model year. The revised Legacy's design language is very much present on the Outback, though it looks a bit more awkward in this tall wagon guise. Speaking of tall, the 2010 Outback's ground clearance has been increased to a total of 8.7 inches, giving it more of a crossover stance rather than an Allroad-esque wagon.

    The third vehicle Land Rover brings to the New York Auto show is the 2010 LR4. It receives the same naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 engine as the other 2010 models, capable of 375 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque.

    Land Rover is unveiling three models for the New York Auto show, the first of which being the 2010 Range Rover. It features two available engines: a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine that puts down 510 horsepower and 461 pound feet of torque, and a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 capable of 375 horsepower and 375 pound feet.

  • First Look: 2010 Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC (693 views)

    They may not all be featured attractions at the New York Auto Show, but Mercedes-Benz has been splashing new models out nearly faster than we can keep track of them over the last few days. This morning’s S-Class orgy followed the E63 AMG announcement this weekend, and now the E250 BlueTEC has rolled out onto the Javits Center floor. While the M-B power machines mentioned above are certainly tempting fare, but consider us early proponents of the new diesel. We’ve always been BlueTEC fans, and this one sounds like a doozy.

    Land Rover, along with two other vehicles, is also showing the 2010 Range Rover Sport at the New York Auto Show. It gets the same naturally aspirated and turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 engines as the standard Range Rover.

  • First Look: 2010 Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid, V-12 S600 (440 views)

    By Steven J. Ewing on April 08, 2009 12 a.m.

    We love it when automakers decide to unveil a new car, especially when they aren't doing it at the auto show currently taking place. We may be knee-deep in New York materials, but Mercedes-Benz went and pulled the trigger on the new 2010 S-Class; more specifically, the S600 and S400 Hybrid.

  • First Look: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Gains Style, Off-Road Capability (933 views)

    By Steven J. Ewing on April 08, 2009 12 a.m.

    Sometimes, a slight refresh can be a big step forward for an automaker. Take this new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, for example. Parent company Chrysler really needs to prove that it can make attractive, fuel-friendly, good-quality vehicles, otherwise the automaker will indeed have a tough time staying afloat over the next year. And from the looks of the new Grand, we don't think it's going to disappoint.

  • First Look: Nissan 370Z Gets Nismo Performance (699 views)

    By Steven J. Ewing on April 07, 2009 12 a.m.

    Not only did Nissan bring the new 370Z Roadster to this year's New York Auto Show, they decided to turn up the heat and unveil a much-anticipated Nismo version of the hot new sports coupe. Nismo, Nissan's in-house tuning division, did a pretty successful job with the last-generation 350Z, so we can only expect good things from the new Z, what with its upgraded powertrain and utterly primal driving dynamics.
