2016 Detroit auto show: what to expect - UPDATE

As we march into a new year, talk has already turned to the first major motor show on the calendar: the 2016 Detroit auto show, officially known as the North American International Auto Show. Opened in 1899, the Detroit auto show lays claim to being the second oldest event of its kind, with only the one year-older Paris motor show outdoing it. (The New York auto show followed in 1900.)

Kia KCD12 Concept: new Mohave SUV, or K900 companion?

Kia has handed down a shadowy teaser for a new concept dubbed KCD12, hinting at a potential new SUV model for its future line-up. The biggest SUV in Kia’s current range is the three-row new Sorento, which is already 80mm longer than its predecessor - but it seems the Korean carmaker could have a view towards an even bigger offering. That would be nothing new, however, with Kia previously offering the giant Mohave in overseas markets (in the US, it was known as the Borrego).
