The Mitsubishi Montero Sport has been around for a while now which, along with its bigger brother, reminds people that the Japanese brand is not dead yet. But the midsize SUV has been around since 2015 in its current form so a mid-cycle facelift was certainly in the cards. This is the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport.
Following in the footsteps of the new Continental GT coupe and droptop from 2017 and 2018 respectively, Bentley has taken the covers off their 4-door sibling, the 2020 Bentley Flying Spur. Just like all Bentley generation changes, this too is a spot-the-difference game but with more differences to spot.
A couple of years ago, Mercedes Benz had a bright idea to plug a hole in their lineup with a pickup truck. But they proceeded to do it in the cheapest way possible — by reskinning the Nissan Navara worktruck in their own image to create the X-Class “luxury” pickup truck and jacking up the price. But two years later, reports suggest that the early discontinuation of the X-Class is imminent.
Sedans are dying – this is what automotive sales charts around the world indicate, thanks to the mass exodus of buyers to the crossover SUV segment. The latter genre is booming and virtually every manufacturer under the sun – Audi included – has been stuffing its line-up over the past decade or so with an assortment of high-roofed contraptions offering at least a pretence of off-road ability.
Though the United States of America had spawned cars like the Saleen S7, SSC Ultimate Aero and the Ford GT, the cry for a modern mid-engined American sports car for the mainstream market was loud among the petrolhead community. And whether they like it or not, they’re all watching their wishes come to life as Chevrolet revealed the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray.
The world is yet to see people bonkers enough to buy a 380+ hp hatchback and then long for more power. But Mercedes-AMG’s latest creations, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 S and CLA 45 S, exist now, apparently boasting the most powerful four-cylinder production engine ever.
Hyundai is on a roll. The Korean brand have wet their feet in every mainstream category there is, with a decent amount of success thanks to good design and great value. However, they’ve been conspicuously absent from the large SUV market. Their largest SUV was the decidedly midsize Hyundai Grand Santa Fe. But now they have the all-new 2020 Palisade — a slightly-bigger midsize SUV.
In a break from tradition (if there are any left), BMW has taken their 8-series coupe and added two more doors to it. With this, they add their new contender to the “4-door Coupe” segment, after the old 6 Series Gran-Coupe.
The midsize segment has always been a bit of a snooze-fest, but the offerings have become more interesting in recent times. Many brands now have great products with good design, luxury features and entertaining handling. But while some are giving up the niche in favour of crossover SUVs, Hyundai has doubled up with a new Sonata that seems to be pulling design ideas from the premium segment into the affordable mainstream. We were invited to South Korea for a week in which we got to take a spin in the all-new 2020 Sonata.
