McLaren 570S live: The “practical” British supercar

McLaren 570S live: The “practical” British supercar

McLaren promised something special for the New York Auto Show and the company delivered with the 570S, as close to an entry-level model as you can get when you're talking in the region of $180k. The new "starter" McLaren, it's the British company's retort to Porsche's 911 Turbo S - among others - offering as much as 562 HP and 443 lb-ft of torque while still keeping outlandish supercar staples like gullwing doors and lashings of carbon-fiber.

2016 Kia Optima bakes in Android Auto

2016 Kia Optima bakes in Android Auto

When it comes to refreshing your best-selling model, you could be forgiven for playing it safe, but Kia is taking the tech approach with the 2016 Optima. Longer and wider than the outgoing model, not to mention with a more distinctive exterior design, it's also Kia's first shipping car with Android Auto support. The gadgetry doesn't stop there, however, as the South Korean firm takes on its American rivals like Chevy and Ford.

This insane SUV is what happens when Range Rover lets loose

This insane SUV is what happens when Range Rover lets loose

Picture the scene: you're filthy rich, addicted to luxury, and have a secret ambition to drive around the automotive equivalent of a stately home/battleship hybrid. Just for you, Range Rover has whipped the SVAutobiography out of the garage, the pinnacle of both the marque's premium SUV line, and of its Special Vehicle Operations customs division. Differentiating itself from not only rivals but its own, more affordable siblings by virtue of flexibility, the true meaning of SVAutobiography is being able to get as luxurious - or ridiculous - as your wallet might allow.

Honda may not be quite ready to whip the sheets off the 10th-gen Civic, but that hasn't stopped its designers from going a little crazy and cooking up this striking Civic Concept to preview some of the aesthetics we can expect this fall.

Devil in the Details: Up close with Lincoln’s Continental Concept

Devil in the Details: Up close with Lincoln’s Continental Concept

When you're resurrecting a name most associated with pampered land-yachts of the 60s and 70s, you can either fight it or - as Lincoln has with the new Continental Concept - embrace it, shag pile and all. A vision in navy blue and chrome, the meaty sedan previews, so the Lincoln Motor Company says, next year's production Continental, undoubtedly shedding some of the more outlandish features in favor of commercial viability. That'll be a shame, though, since as I discovered at the New York Auto Show today, what the Continental Concept excels at is detailing.

Inside CT6: The Cadillac putting German luxe on notice

Inside CT6: The Cadillac putting German luxe on notice

It's hard to overstate quite how important the 2016 CT6 is to Cadillac. Absent for some time from the full-size luxury segment, Cadillac needs a flagship that can not only take on BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and others in features, but convince drivers that its brand of American Luxury deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the Germans. And while toothy BMW-baiting monsters like the CTS-V may fill a niche, there's nothing like a vast uber-luxe sedan to make your case.

Volkswagen at New York Auto Show: four Beetles, SportWagen Alltrack

The New York International Auto Show 2015 kicks into high gear this week, and Volkswagen is ready not with one nor two but five models to show off. Granted, four of them are concepts, but considering they're legacy, they are more than noteworthy.

2016 Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan makes its official debut

It hasn't been a secret that the 2016 Cadillac CT6 would be making it public debut at the New York Auto Show, and leading up to it the auto maker has teased the car in a myriad of ways. We can finally put those teases to rest: the luxury sedan has arrived, and it fulfills all of Cadillac's promises. The CT6 is a big deal for Cadillac for multiple reasons, not the least of which being due to its designation as one of eight new models being launched as part of a multi-billion dollar investment by the auto maker.
