    Based on the same platform and using the same powertrains as the new Alfa Romeo Giulia midsize sport sedan, the Stelvio is a crossover SUV more suited to the race track than a mountain trail. Shown here, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which packs 505 twin-turbocharged horsepower.

    2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S

    Starting in December, people with a spare 300 grand in their pockets can blow it on the S-badged version of the second-generation Vanquish. Offered as a coupe or a convertible, the Vanquish S gets minor changes that add up to slight improvements in performance and requisite “mine is better than yours” appearance changes for when it rolls up to the valet stand.

  • 2018 Audi A5 Sportback photo

    2018 Audi A5 and S5 Sportback

    Audi may no longer offer the A4 Avant station wagon in the United States (at least not without an Allroad SUV costume), but the new A5 and S5 Sportback models help to ease the pain by providing spiffier styling combined with extra cargo capacity.

    2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

    Chevrolet takes on the Tacoma TRD Pro with the new Colorado ZR2, a Baja-inspired midsize truck with an available diesel engine, a functional design, and engineering changes intended to make it genuinely fearsome off-road.

    Genesis spices up the G80 lineup with the new 3.3T Sport, which is equipped with the same twin-turbocharged V-6 engine offered in the larger G90 flagship sedan.

    In 1957, Jaguar built 16 XKSS models, based on the D-Type racing car and modified for use on public roads. A fire destroyed more than half of them. Now, Jaguar’s Classic division will recreate the nine cars lost to the flames, and offer them to selected company customers and collectors for $1.2 million each. Shown here is one of those continuation models, which debuted in Los Angeles.

  • Jaguar I-Pace Concept photo

    Jaguar I-Pace Concept

    About as far from the XKSS as Jaguar could possibly get, the company’s new I-Pace Concept is an electrified SUV with a driving range of 220 miles. Jaguar says the I-Pace will be on sale in 2018, though its final form is more likely to take the shape of the production F-Pace than this wilder concept vehicle.

    2017 Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet

    There will be just 300 examples built of the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet, which is based upon the S-Class convertible and upfitted with every imaginable luxury, and just 75 of them will land in the U.S. market. The 621-horsepower V-12 engine isn’t the star here. Rather, opulence rules. If you want to know the price, you can’t afford the car.

    2017 Mini Countryman

    Completely redesigned, the new 2017 Mini Countryman succeeds the recently introduced Mini Clubman as the largest Mini ever.

    2018 Toyota C-HR

    Styling sells cars, so Toyota should expect lots of cash-strapped Millennials to want its new 2018 C-HR. A 5-door hatchback with bold yet balanced styling, the C-HR rides tall but does not offer optional all-wheel drive. A 144-horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is the only choice, and each C-HR is well equipped right out of the so-called box.
