DETROIT—In the wake of the all-new Camry midsize sedan launched for 2018, Toyota unveiled the redesigned 2019 Avalon large sedan at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Like Camry, the new Avalon moves to the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), a platform that will eventually host most of the brand’s cars and crossovers.
DETROIT—Kia kicked off the fourth generation of its mainstream compact car with the unveiling of the 2019 Forte at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The new Forte gets fresh styling on a slightly larger platform, an all-new powertrain, new driver assistance features, and estimated fuel economy of up to 35 mpg combined.
DETROIT—On the eve of the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Volkswagen unveiled the newest generation of its compact 4-door sedan. The redesigned 2019 Jetta is slightly wider, taller, and longer than the previous model, and the wheelbase grows from 104.4 inches to 105.7—all of which improves interior room. The new Jetta is based on Volkswagen’s MQB architecture, which also underpins the new-for-2018 Tiguan compact SUV and Atlas midsize SUV.
Audi unveiled a redesigned fourth-generation version of its flagship large sedan in conjunction with the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2019 Audi A8 represents an evolution of the brand’s design language and debuts with a host of all-new technology features.
Mazda took the wraps off a thoroughly revamped Mazda 6 at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. The revisions to Mazda’s midsize sedan are emblematic of the brand’s recent focus on positioning itself as an upscale automaker with “class-above” refinement levels compared to other mainstream makes.
First available to the American market for the 2006 model year, the Mercedes-Benz CLS introduced consumers to the “4-door coupe” concept. Essentially a heavily restyled E-Class, the CLS enjoyed more rakish styling than that midsize offering, as well as higher levels of equipment and technology. The redesigned-for-2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS–which debuted at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show–carries on the tradition while boasting a new look, a new engine, and new comfort-oriented technology.
