The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is undergoing a dramatic transformation -– opening up its borders to curious tourists and relaxing a lot of rules that were once considered very strict. Vision 2030 as it is known is a plan to reduce the dependence on oil and diversify its economy.
A surprise debut at the 2019 Dubai Motor Show was the 2020 Chevrolet Captiva. We didn’t quite realise what model it is until we saw the “Captiva” badge on the tailgate. It’s a decent-looking compact crossover, but it wasn’t until later that it’s really a rebadged MG Hector after a reader alerted us.
Check out all the top launches in a quick tour of the show floor. Notable debuts include the 2020 Nissan Sunny, Chevrolet Captiva, Lincoln Aviator, Cadillac CT6, Mitsubishi Montero, Land Rover Defender and HongQi something or the other.
After years of having an electric car range limited to the Leaf hatchback and an electric NV200 van, Nissan has unveiled the Ariya concept, a near-production electric SUV that’s going to rock the mid-priced EV segment.
Mercedes-Benz has used this week’s Geneva motor show to roll out five world premieres, ranging from the sub-compact CLA Shooting Brake to a roadster version of the thunderous AMG GT R. It’s also the last motor show appearance for long-standing company chairman Dr Dieter Zetsche, who will step down in May to make way for current board member Ola Källenius as his successor.
We take a stroll around the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2019 in Detroit, and check out the latest launches there, including the Ram 2500 HD, the Toyota Supra and the Ford Shelby GT500.
Ford recently launched the 2020 Shelby GT500 at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. The numbers are not out yet, but the 5.2-litre V8 supercharged engine is said to produce over 700 hp. This should be enough to propel the GT500 from a speed of 0-100 kph easily in less than 4 seconds. It is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. There will be no manual option.
Ford has revealed the all-new 2020 Explorer and is set to make its debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. The new Explorer will be bigger and lighter than the current generation and will be based on a rear-wheel-drive platform.
A couple of photos of the highly anticipated 2020 Toyota Supra has made its way online ahead of its January 14th launch at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
