Volvo is on a tear.
After years of product stagnation, the Swedish company recently announced that it would bring out a string of eight new or redesigned models over a four-year period – a rather ambitious undertaking for such a small company.
Maybe Acura saw it coming.
Back in 2015, the company replaced its TSX compact and TL midsize sedans with the singular TLX that slotted between the two in size and price, offering both the TSX’s 4-cylinder engine and the TL’s V6 (and available all-wheel drive) to cover the spread. Considered a midsize, it was on the small end of that class, which always hurt it in comparisons of interior space.
It seems you just can’t cut the crossover pie into small enough slices.
Nearly all manufacturers have multiple crossovers in their model lineup, some with multiples in the same class. And Nissan just became one of the latter, slotting the new Rogue Sport into the gap between the company’s subcompact Juke and the compact Rogue with which it shares a moniker.
In the rarified world of hypercars, Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg has produced its share. Among them was the CCX, which in 2005 wrestled the long-held Guinness World Record of “fastest production car” from the McLaren F1, ending its nine-year reign. The company’s latest creation, the Agera RS1, hit the stage at the New York Auto Show.
It’s just a concept for now, but this “4-door coupe” seems a logical addition to the existing Mercedes-AMG GT 2-door Coupe.
While sports cars no longer make up the bulk of Porsche’s lineup – or sales – they’re certainly what built the make’s reputation. And the best known of them is undoubtedly the iconic 911, new versions of which were displayed at the New York Auto Show.
