Mercedes teases the car it hopes will be catnip to millennials

Mercedes-Benz has previewed its next big design change, with the Concept A Sedan giving us a hint of what a new compact four-door could look like. Revealed today at the Shanghai Auto Show, the new concept softens Mercedes' design language even further, building on the CLA with more swooping lines. Indeed, according to Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG, "the time of creases is over."

This striking 7-seat concept previews Subaru’s Ascent SUV for 2018

Subaru is getting back into the 7-seat SUV business, and we're getting closer to seeing the car they'll do it with. The Subaru Ascent SUV Concept is, so the name insists, only a design study for now. Look beyond the car show glitz, however, and you find the core styling of the new Subaru Ascent, which will be headed to dealerships in 2018.

The Toyota FT-4X Concept is a Millennials’ toy truck made real

The Toyota FT-4X Concept is a Millennials’ toy truck made real

Toyota clearly hasn't given up its toy box, as a Tonka truck come to life is really the best way to describe its FT-4X concept at the NYIAS 2017 this week. Pitched as an "always ready" SUV for city-dwelling Generation Y drivers, the chunky 4x4 can't resist every automaker's current obsession: Millennials. As Toyota sees it, they're looking for "Rugged Charm".

Infiniti QX80 Monograph reimagines the huge, unapologetic SUV

Infiniti QX80 Monograph reimagines the huge, unapologetic SUV

Infiniti may be best known for its curvaceous Red Sport coupes and sedans today, but the automaker is looking to step up its game in the luxury large SUV segment wth something very much like this, the Infiniti QX80 Monograph. Described as a "design study" for the New York International Auto Show 2017, the bold SUV won't see a launch as-is, but cues are likely to appear on whatever Infiniti brings to market. If the response is good, though, there's a fair chance that some of the bolder elements.

Nissan’s Rogue Dogue puts your pup in pole position

Nissan has revealed its second custom Rogue crossover for the New York International Auto Show 2017, and the Rogue Dogue is all about keeping your dogs happy.

Where the Rogue Trail Warrior concept yesterday was all about going out and getting up to mischief in the mud yourself, the Rogue Dogue is more about a muddy canine friend.

Ford designed a baby crib that simulates car rides

Ford designed a baby crib that simulates car rides

What you're seeing here is a baby crib designed and built by Ford. Yes, the car company, and no, this isn't a late April Fools' joke. It's dubbed the Max Motor Dreams, and it's essentially a "smart bed" for babies that can simulate the feel of riding in a car — a well-known trick for parents with little ones that have difficulty falling asleep. It uses sound, lighting, and motion to mimic the feel of a gentle car ride from the backseat.

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

It's difficult to say exactly why it is Samsung and Apple dominate the smartphone market - but this video takes a crack at it. What we're looking at is a spinning iPhone 8 concept - a device that's most likely going to come out next year, but commands search terms in Google this year because "iPhone 7s" is too many characters to be bothered typing. What we see here is style - design finesse - a sense of assuredness in the phone's overall excellence. That's what Apple and Samsung have, or appear to have, that most other phone companies lack.

This glorious Samsung smart pocket watch isn’t for sale

Samsung is showing off prototype smartwatches at Baselworld 2017, including a ‘hybrid pocket concept watch’ that reimagines what the Gear S3 would look like. You can’t buy any of these prototypes, of course, as they’re designed to bring concept to life, not necessarily to market. You can, however, buy a new 4G LTE-capable Gear S3 Classic that has launched at Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.

The Jaguar I-PACE got loose, and even British weather can’t overshadow it

The Jaguar I-PACE got loose, and even British weather can’t overshadow it

Somebody let the big electric cat off its leash. The Jaguar I-PACE isn't expected to roll into dealerships until the second half of 2018, but the British car company couldn't resist taking it for a spin - in prototype form, at least - on the public roads on its home turf. Turns out, even grim, overcast London can't cast too much of a shadow on what's set to be Jaguar's most important car in decades.

Behold, an “iPhone 8 Edition” with Google Goggles inside

Behold, an “iPhone 8 Edition” with Google Goggles inside

An iPhone 8 Edition without a border and with augmented reality abilities never seen before on an Apple device would make a great device. Further, it'd allow sense to come of the comments Tim Cook has made in the past about augmented reality. Not that they didn't make sense on their own, but here in a concept iPhone X (X representing the unknown) without a visible bezel, Siri can shine, and the possibilities can create a whole new value proposition for the end consumer.

Meet EVE, NIO’s vision of its 2020 autonomous electric car

First NIO wowed us with its ridiculously fast electric supercar, now the EV startup is promising to have its own self-driving vehicles on sale in the US by 2020. The company - fledgling automotive arm of NextEV, the Chinese firm already known for its Formula E racing team - has taken the wraps off its NIO EVE autonomous prototype today. Dubbed a "vision car" by NIO, it's apparently intended to give us some hints of what we could expect in just a few years time.
