2018 Hyundai Veloster N walkaround: video

The new 2018 Hyundai Veloster made its global debut last week in Detroit, after months of spy photos and a short series of teaser images. As expected, the new Veloster will be offered in three main grades: 110kW/179Nm base models, 150kW/265Nm SR Turbo variants, and the top-shelf 205kW Veloster N hero model. The 2018 Veloster keeps the quirky four-door hatch layout of its predecessor, but takes on a sharpened new look for the latest generation.

The revised Jeep Renegade has been spied undergoing testing in the extreme cold of northern Sweden. Unlike the recently-revealed Cherokee facelift, the Renegade's mid-life update doesn't seem to be quite as dramatic a makeover.

E-Pace: Why is Jag's newest SUV such a fat cat?

It might be classed as a compact SUV, but weighing in at nearly 1.9 tonnes, the new Jaguar E-Pace is up to 380kg heftier than its closest rivals, which include Audi’s ageing Q3, BMW’s X1 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA. And that’s comparing apples with apples, as all four vehicles are powered by 2.0-litre turbo fours, in petrol and diesel forms. Remarkably, the E-Pace is even heavier than its larger F-Pace sibling, which tips the scales at around 1770kg, give or take.

Kia's design bosses in Detroit: The best bits

Travelling with Kia to this week's Detroit motor show, Australian media were given the opportunity to chat with design supremos, Peter Schreyer and Gregory Guillaume. If you've been living under an old Cerato, here's a catch-up on these two fellows. Schreyer was grabbed from Audi in 2006, after 26 years with the premium German brand, to lead Kia away from the "neutral image" that had contributed to its cheap-and-cheerful reputation over the years.

Lexus doesn't want everyone to love its design

Lexus is well aware of how polarising its styling has become; the man who led the design process on two of the brand’s most arresting concept cars says that’s kind of the point. Kevin Hunter is the president of Toyota’s Calty Design Research studios, located in California and Michigan, that created the LF-LC concept (which morphed into the LC flagship coupe) and the just-released LF-1 Limitless crossover concept.
