2020 Subaru Forester: Specs, Design, Price

The compact Subaru Forester crossover SUV is one in the lineup of brand’s recently redesigned high-riding models. The 2019 Forester adopted the Subaru Global platform and also improved the interior comfort and utility. A more powerful engine and above average off-road capability should also be the selling point of the model but the newest Forester is also loaded with the latest tech and safety features.

The 2020 Subaru Forester will continue to benefit on the recent redesign and there won’t be major upgrades for several years. Subaru will revisit the equipment offer and add several new options like the new body colors and wheel design. The trim range will likely stay the same.

2020 Subaru Forester: Design

To the second model year of its fifth-generation version, the 2020 Subaru Forester will enter with the minimal changes in all aspects. The thorough redesign last year brought structural and visual upgrades although the latter is not the large departure from the previous version.

The newest generation Forester is based on the Subaru Global platform which is also the foundation of other models like the Impreza, Crosstrek and Ascent.  The model is also set on the slightly longer wheelbase which measures 105.1 inches in contrast to 103.9 inches in the previous generation version. The benefit is the increased interior and cargo capacity.

The styling of the model is angular and with brand’s latest styling elements. The model has a brand’s signature grille style and lighting units with the C-shaped pattern. The 8.7 inches of the ground clearance and rugged sheet metal give it strong presence but the Forester isn’t surely among the prettiest crossovers in the market.

Interior, equipment:

The 2020 Forester will appear with the same design and largely unchanged equipment offer. The model will provide a very comfortable rear row and up to 76.1 cubes for the cargo space.

The model will also come with the latest tech features and upgrades. Every model will offer a modern infotainment system with the Apple Car Play and Android Auto support. The Eye Sigh driver assists package will also be the part of all versions. The package covers systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and emergency braking. The higher trim safety upgrades will include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic, lane change assist and rear automatic braking.

This engine employs higher compression, active valve control and direct injection. The 2020 Subaru Forester will also get this engine and power and torque from it of 182 hp and 176 lb-ft. In the combination with the engine and all-wheel traction will be the continuously variable transmission.

The Forester will also provide among the best fuel economy among the all-wheel-drive versions with the gasoline engine. The model should return 26 mpg city and 33 highways.

The look is also sleeker and more elegant while there are also more efficient and powerful powertrains.

2020 Range Rover Evoque

2020 Range Rover Evoque: Platform, Design

The redesigned, second generation 2020 Range Rover Evoque started the transformation with the new platform and body structure. The Premium Transverse Architecture is intended for brand’s smaller models with the goal of providing better electrification and performance. The new platform is the mixed-material construction with the high strength and regular steel, aluminum and magnesium in the mix. The new design opens the door for the mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid technologies as well as for the Ingenium family of engines.

With the new underpinning, the redesigned Evoque also sports the sleeker Velar-inspired look and a 90 percent of the body structure is also new. The new body is placed on 0.8 inches longer wheelbase. This translates to more rear legroom but with the shorter overhangs, the model is actually slightly shorter.

Styling:

The look of the new Evoque is the evolution of the current design with the obvious similarities with the Velar SUV. The same basic look remains in the combination with the sloping roofline and high beltline. The models gained, however, the new grille and headlights and redesigned lower openings. The slim grille version has the honeycomb pattern and comes with the narrow, nicely accentuated headlights.

The model has also the smooth body lines and flush door handles. The sculpted fenders add a bit of the contrast to the flat panels. The rear side is also fresh with the new two-piece taillights.

The model also gained the Touch Pro Duo touchscreen system with the pair of 10.2-inch screens which debuted in the Velar model. The Evoque provides also Apple Car Play and Android Auto support. In front of the driver is a 12.-3 digital instrument cluster and there is also the head-up display projecting the information on the windshield.  The newly added ground view camera also provides the picture of what is underneath and ahead of the front wheels.

2020 Honda HR-V: News, Design, Specs, Price

Honda’s subcompact HR-V crossover was one of the first
contenders in this rapidly growing class and this well-to-ride and
flexible-interior model still remains in the top of the recommendation list.
The brand has been overhauling the crossover SUV range and we saw recently the
all-new Honda Passport and refreshed Pilot SUV. The HR-V received also the
number of updates for the 2019 version including the front and rear styling
refresh, updated interior and tech features and the addition of new Sport and
Touring trims.

The next 2020 Honda HR-V won’t bring substantial design upgrades and the model also has the up-to-date tech and safety equipment. Still, Honda will likely offer the new body color options and possibly the new exterior theme.  Honda promised also the hybridization of the entire light truck range but there are no hints yet that the next version will get this option. The addition of the turbocharged gasoline mill is among the possibilities as some reports claim as well.

2020 Honda HR-V

2020 Honda HR-V: Design

The recently refreshed, Honda Fit-related, subcompact
crossover will continue to benefit from the last year styling updates and there
won’t be substantial design or structural changes until the next full redesign.
Buyers should expect the next 2020 Honda HR-V with the new color options and
wheel styles. 

The smallest in Honda SUV range model has an attractive
appearance with the nicely defined body lines. 
The model combines actually the crossover and coupe styling cues which
seems like the good combination from the visual perspective. The HR-V has
up-to-date grille style and the new design of the headlights. Honda refreshed
also the look of the bumpers and taillights for the 2019 mid-update.

The model will use the 17-inch alloy wheels on the base
version and update the styling of the Sport version with 18-inch units and add
dark trim exterior accents.

Interior, Equipment:

Honda updated also the interior of the popular HR-V for the
2019 version. The model received the reshaped front seats and upgraded
upholstery quality plus improved sound insulation. The part of the mid-update
was also improved infotainment system and safety equipment.

The HR-V will provide the 5-inch center display, Bluetooth,
rearview camera and we could also see the extension of the actives safety
systems to the base trim. The Sport trim will add larger wheels, additional
sound insulation, a 7-inch center display. The upper grades will add the heated
seats, leather upholstery, a navigation system, etc.

The Safety Sense Suite available currently in the EX trim and higher could be introduced in lower trims as well.

2020 Honda HR-V

2020 Honda HR-V: Powertrains

The current Honda HR-V goes on sale in the US with the
single, naturally aspirated engine. A 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline mill
makes 141 horsepower and torque 121 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Honda HR-V
will also return this engine in the combination with the continuously variable
transmission and dilemma between the front- and all-wheel drive. With this
power unit, the model will provide a 28/34 mpg city-highway fuel economy with
the 2WD. The 4WD versions will return 27/31 mpg.

The big news for the 2020 version could be the inclusion of
the turbocharged four-cylinder engine as per the latest reports. A 1.5-liter
turbo-4 engine with the power around 174 hp like in the Civic hatch would be
the great upgrade for the subcompact crossover but Honda hasn’t yet confirmed
this possibility. The HR-V should also get the hybrid powertrain but it still
remains unclear when Honda will install it.

2020 Honda HR-V: Release, Price

The 2020 Honda HR-V will have the launch date in late 2019.
The price will again start slightly above $20, 000.

2020 Suzuki Jimny: News, Design, Release

Suzuki redesigned the iconic, small off-roader Jimny for the 2019 model year and the model represents the fourth-generation version. The new Jimmy arrived slightly shorter on the reinforced chassis and kept the retro look but with the influence of some styling cues from other off-roaders. The latest Jimny introduced also the new engine version but for the modern times the new version packs also some advanced tech and safety systems and can also boost the comfort with several high-level features.

For the next model year, the 2020 Suzuki Jimny will be mostly the carryover model with some changes in the equipment offer and addition of new options. The new trim versions could appear and Suzuki hasn’t mentioned the new engine options. More attention for the new model year, Suzuki could also get with the special edition version or new exterior package.

2020 Suzuki Jimny

2020 Suzuki Jimny: Design

After the thorough redesigned for the 2019 model year, the 2020 Suzuki Jimny hasn’t much room for the new changes and the next version won’t bring notable visual or structural upgrades. Buyers should expect additional body color options over the current eight shades and three dual-tone choices. Suzuki might also add a new trim option or introduce the special edition version.

The latest-generation Jimny sits on the strengthened ladder frame with the rigid axles and coil springs front and rear. The newest model is actually 1.2 inches shorter than the previous version at 143,5 inches in total and slightly wider at 64, 8 inches.

Visually, the model remains retro-styled off-roader with the flat body panels and several styling similarities with the Mercedes G-Class, Toyota Fj Cruiser, etc. The styling of the model defines tall, boxy-shaped silhouette combined with the chunky fenders, circular headlights and tailgate-mounted spare wheel.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin, the Jimny continues with the straightforward design and durable materials. The dashboard style shares some styling cues with the recent Jeep models.  The model has a good driving position and comfortable seats. The cargo space is just over 3 cubes with all seats in use. It expands to 13, 3 cubes with the rear seats folded.

As for the available equipment, the Jimny will offer a pretty long list of useful and modern features. Buyers will be able to get a 7-inch touchscreen display, smartphone and Bluetooth connectivity, power and heated seats, heated mirrors and more.

The off-road-ready Jimny gets also a number of the safety systems. The safety list will include automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, tire pressure monitoring, and lane departure warning.

2020 Suzuki Jimny

2020 Suzuki Jimny: Powertrain

The Jimny will fit the engine with either a standard 5-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox. A standard fit will be the AllGrip Pro part-time all-wheel-drive system with the low range gear. The system can switch between the 2H mode with the power on the front wheels while 4H activates all wheels. For the rugged off-road terrains, the driver can switch to a 4L mode to activate the low range gear.

The Jimny can tow up to 2, 866 pounds. An approach angle of 37 degrees and 49-degrees departure angle improve also the rugged terrain capability.

2020 BMW X1: Mid-update, Changes, Release

BMW is testing the refreshed X1 crossover which should be ready for the next year launch. The updated X1 was expected as the 2019 model according to the previous reports but the mid-cycle refresh will coincide with the 2020 BMW X1 version.

The new model will bring the small changes on the front and rear side as it is the case with the most mid-updates while changes inside the cabin should be even subtler. The front-wheel-drive-based small crossovers should also return the same-number-of-cylinders engine options with the possible plug-in hybrid introduction. More details will emerge closer to the launch date.

2020 BMW X1

2020 BMW X1: Refreshed look

The new 2020 BMW X1 will bring some visual refreshments and there won’t be radical changes. The prototype version has the swirly camo on the sections of the front and rear sides while the profile remains undisguised.

Obviously, the usual mid-update changes will appear with the new version. The model will gain the new headlights and taillights but both seem to have the similar shape while changes the internal pattern.

The kidney grille version also changes in line with the most recent high-riding models in the range and the front bumper is also the part of the refresh. The rear bumper will also get a slightly restyled form but overall BMW’s first crossover in the range won’t change the styling radically.

Interior, equipment:

As for the interior design and available equipment, the revised X1 will also come in the line with recently revised models from the brand.

The model should get the new steering wheel, gear shifter and iDrive system. A bit larger center display should appear and BMW might also add the new digital instrument cluster. Expect also the rearview camera and automatic emergency braking to become the standard equipment.

2020 BMW X1

2020 BMW X1: Powertrains

The engine range of the new 2020 BMW X1 will again consist of the 3- and 4-cylinder options depending on the market. No details about the performance yet but the power range should vary between 116 and 230 hp.

The version in the US will again get the turbo-4 unit with the 8-speed automatic transmission and standard two-wheel drive. The power on all four wheels will also be available but some sources suggest a new sub-200 hp engine option.

BMW might also offer the plug-in hybrid version. The X1 version in China has the setup with the 1.5-liter inline-3 turbo engine and the electric motor at the rear axle. The 10.7-kWh battery pack provides the range around 37 miles in this version. Some sort of this setup should also find the way to the new markets with the arrival of the next version or later.

2020 BMW X1: Release, Price

The new 2020 BMW X1 will debut in the first part of 2019 with the on-sale date next fall. A slight bump in the price range is expected. However, the base version will again stay close to $34, 000.

2020 BMW X6: Redesign, News, Specs, Arrival

BMW is constantly working on its growing SUV range and has again been caught testing the new-generation, 2020 BMW X6. The redesign of the coupe-like styled, mid-size SUV follows naturally the recent makeover of the conventionally shaped X5 and again two models will share most nuts and bolts.

The third-generation X6 has been testing on the roads for a while and we saw the base version and the M body kit version. What we should expect is the all-new X6 based on the new platform and with the mechanics similar to the closest relative X5. The interior design and available tech will also borrow heavily from the X5 while the new more aggressive exterior will also adapt the cues from the X4 model.

2020 BMW X6

2020 BMW X6: Design

The redesigned 2020 BMW X6 isn’t yet ready to ditch the camo but we can detect the direction the new version follows. The full-body camo can’t hide model’s more muscular shape and the cues from both the latest X4 and X5.

The front section of the model will get the new and enlarged version of the kidney grille and in the combination with the new headlights with the similar design pattern as on the latest BMWs. The laser headlights with the X-shape elements will also go to the production. The model will also get the redesigned rear end with the cues from the X4 model.

The BMW X6 M version will boost the performance and the look with the M body kit and equipment. The front fascia of this version will use the sportier front bumper with larger air intakes and more sculpted low section. The large, high-performance wheels, massive Brembo brakes and quad exhaust setup will also boost the presence of the M version.

The new X6 will, more importantly, switch to the new CLAR platform which should improve the drive, structural rigidly and provide reduced weight. Like the X5 model, the coupe variant could stretch the length and width as well.

Interior, equipment:

The interior of the new X6 hasn’t yet been in focus of the spy camera but the cabin design shouldn’t stray far from what we have in the new X5. The similar dash design and layout will appear in the X6 as well as the high-tech features from the popular conventionally shaped, mid-size SUV.

The new X6 will offer the digital instrument panel and the driver-focused center cluster with BMW’s newest infotainment platform. The coupe-like SUV will lack some of the rear seat comforts as it prioritizes style but will include all the electronic driver aids we can find in the brand’s new models.

2020 BMW X6

2020 BMW X6: Powertrains

As for the engine options, the new 2020 BMW X6 should go with the similar solutions as the recently redesigned X5.

The powertrain range should start with the 3.0-liter inline-6 turbo with 335 horses and 330 lb-ft of torque. Following the xDrive40i version should be an xDrive50i model with the 4.4-liter turbo V-8 with the power around 456 hp and torque reaching 479 lb-ft of torque.

The X6 M version should rely on the 4.4-liter bi-turbo V-8 and get from it around 600 hp and torque of 553 lb-ft. The plug-in hybrid version should also appear later in the life cycle.

2020 BMW X6: Release, Price

The redesigned 2020 BMW X6 is expected late next year. The model will be slightly more expensive than the version it replaces. But the real price and specs will appear after the debut.

shaped by the latest redesign. The CX-5 came with the simpler and more elegant
lines after the recent redesign and keeps the similar dimensions.

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 could get updated front and rear end
styling as the reports indicate. The face of the model will again be defined

Control system came also with the turbo four engine providing better control
and traction thanks to the vertical load control, varying torque and braking
friction.

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 version could gain the turbodiesel
engine available in some markets. A 2.2-liter turbocharged inline-4 diesel should
provide around 175 hp.

Two engines available with the 2019 version will return. A
naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-4 engine with the fuel-saving technologies
will produce 184 hp and torque of 186 lb-ft. More muscle will provide the
versions with the 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the
hood.  The turbo-boosted engine will pump
up to 250 horsepower and torque of 310 pound-feet.

The front-wheel drive and 6-speed automatic will be standard
combo while the all-wheel drive will also be available.

The new generation RAV4 is slightly shorter than the version it replaced but with the shorter overhangs and longer wheelbase, it improved the rear-seat comfort. The model is also a hair wider than before.

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 will come essentially unchanged after the recent redesign and new color options will appear with the possibility of the new special edition version.

The styling of the model will also stay intact until the next mid-update. The fifth generation RAV4 has more aggressive appearance thanks to the more sculpted lines. The redesigned front fascia with the new grille insert also contributes to the style. The chiseled profile also improves the impression and the sharp lines also adds to the aerodynamics. The model also has an angular rear end and modern taillights.

Interior, Equipment:

The RAV4 also introduced the redesigned interior with the last year makeover and the 2020 version won’t have to bring anything new. The model has nice dash design and the interior also follows the exterior with the sharp lines.

The newest infotainment system will also be the part of the model’s portfolio with the 7-inch touchscreen in the base version sitting high on the dash. The upper-grade versions will get a larger 8-inch center display as well as the digital instrument cluster. Both options will support Apple Car Play, Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi antenna etc.

The model will also offer high-quality materials, power liftgate, moonroof, JBL sound system, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats and much more.

The RAV4 will also be generously equipped with advanced safety systems. The standard systems will include auto high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, auto emergency braking, pedestrian detection and active lane control. The safety upgrades will add blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic braking and surround-vision cameras.

2020 Toyota RAV4: Powertrains

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 will offer both the non-electrified and hybrid powertrain. There will be a standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system will boost the power distribution between the axles and between the wheels with the torque vectoring system. Adding to the models’ capability will also be the various traction control modes.

The base engine will be the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine in the combination with the 8-gear automatic transmission. The hybrid will combine the continuously variable transmission and the battery pack positioned behind the rear seats.

The hybrid version should bring better performance and fuel economy but remains to wait for Toyota to reveal precise details.
