Lamborghini revealed the Aventador S a few months ago to act as a bridge between the regular Aventador and the bloodthirsty SV.

At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Kia revealed the Picanto X-Line as the most powerful Picanto variant, with a 98 hp engine. But instead of giving it a hot-hatch frock, Kia decided to dress it up in a butch crossover costume.
Hyundai’s premium brand Genesis was launched with the aim to take on the German luxury cars by offering better value-for-money. It all started with the large Genesis G90 and the the smaller G80, the latter unfortunately starting life as a Hyundai-badged model.

At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Hyundai revealed the Genesis G70, a sedan tailored to lock horns with the BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations department flung the wraps off their new Land Rover Discovery SVX at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Along with the barely-facelifted versions of the S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet, at Frankfurt, Mercedes-Benz pulls two other rabbits out of its hat which come in the form of new exclusive versions of the G65 and G63 AMG models.

At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Kia showed the 2018 Sorento facelift for Europe. South Korea, its home market, received the facelifted 2018 Sorento a few weeks ago. As it is just a mid-life refresh, the changes just include updated bumpers and minor tweaks in the design of the lights.
Our news feed has been harboring a bunch of leaked photos of the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado for a while now.

Volkswagen introduced an updated version of their Golf’s practical alter ego, the Golf Sportsvan at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The rest of the Golf range was given a mid-cycle refresh in the last November but the Sportsvan had to wait for a while to get its face done. This minivan adds more room to the Golf package thanks to its taller roof and longer body.
