Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept previews crossover EV for 2021

Audi was the first German car brand to release a production-ready electric SUV: The e-tron, a vehicle unmistakably an Audi with its familiar silhouette and bold Singleframe grille. The e-tron SUV has none of a modern electric car's quirkiness, which is either a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it: Audi's search for something with mass-market appeal left it looking pretty much like a conventional gasoline-powered SUV. If you’re pining for more style in your electric Audi SUV, though, the German carmaker has unveiled the 2021 Q4 Sportback e-tron.

2021 Nissan Rogue heaps on style and tech (but leaves a big question)

The 2021 Nissan Rogue has made its official debut, and if you thought the old midsize crossover was immemorable, this brand new version could fix that. Sharper, crisper, and generally more eye-catching on the outside, the 2021 Rogue borrows some of Nissan's recent concept car flourishes, like its new headlamps. They're paired with a more dramatic V-motion grille.

The Porsche Macan S nails the sports crossover sweet-spot

It's no secret that Porsche's SUVs have been quietly underwriting the automaker's more enthusiast-focused cars for some time now. Models like the Cayenne and Macan have found a healthy audience of drivers seeking the driving experience and the badge of a Porsche, but who need more practicality than from, say, a Cayman. You could call it compromise, but spend some time in the Porsche Macan S and you might start to wonder if it's the sports car drivers that are missing out.
