2020 Buick Encore: Redesign, Changes, Release

Buick is working on the new generation Encore model and the
latest spy photos are the proof. The brand’s smallest, subcompact crossover has
proven on the market and Buick will try to support its increasing sales with
the new design and features. The model was all-new in 2013 and after the
refresh for 2017, the 2020 Buick Encore will enter the second generation.

Buick hasn’t yet disclosed what changes the new Encore hides under the camo but we should expect extensive upgrades in all aspects. The model will arrive on the upgraded platform and with the new exterior and cabin design. The new tech and convenience features will also appear in the redesigned version. The next Encore should, however, return with the same engine displacement while pairing it with the new automatic transmission. The twined version of the Encore, the Opel Mokka X goes on sale in the overseas market.

2020 Buick Encore: Platform and Design

Details about the redesigned 2020 Buick Encore are still
scarce and it isn’t yet clear what platform the model will use. The current GM
Gamma II Platform is shared with the current Mokka X and Chevy Trax and while
the new Mokka X will be based on PSA Group’s CMP small car platform, the new
Encore could borrow it under license or GM will use its underpinning for both
small Buick and Chevy models.

On the other hand, based on the spy photos, the new Encore
seems to have a slightly larger body which could also mean longer wheelbase and
more interior space. However, the new version will stay in the subcompact class
and therefore there won’t be big dimension changes.

The changes in model’s styling are also hard to identify. The rising beltline and slightly resculpted fender flares can be detected. Buick’s latest design language will define the styles of the grille and lighting units and they should be similar to what we can see on brand’s latest models. The tailgate seems also reshaped slightly and the roof line also looks slightly longer.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin of the smallest Buick crossover, we should
expect the new center cluster and instrument panel. Buick will also employ new
materials and textures and improve seat comfort.

The new generation version will also come with the new
connectivity and upgraded driver aids. All versions will use the latest
infotainment system with smartphone support and the model will also equip
keyless entry and ignition, power driver seat, and more in the base version.
The upper grades will add more sophisticated materials and comfort features.
The active driver aids should appear in more trims and with upgraded features.

It is also possible the inclusion of the high-class Avenir trim with the unique exterior and interior details and top-notch materials and electronic aids.

2020 Buick Encore

2020 Buick Encore: Powertrain

In the engine department, the new 2020 Buick Encore should
repeat a 1.4-liter engine displacement. A turbocharged unit is available in two
outputs in the current version with the base model producing 138 hp and more
powerful generating 153 hp. However, Buick should replace the current 6-speed
automatic transmission with the new 9-gear setup with possible upgrades to the
performance and efficiency.

The model will arrive again with the front- and all-wheel
drive. The fuel economy should remain around 30 mpg combined.

2020 Buick Encore: Arrival, Price

The redesigned 2020 Buick Encore will go on sale in late
2019 and price should stay close to the current range.

2020 Audi Q3: News, RS Q3, Specs, Release

Audi’s subcompact Q3 crossover SUV gets attention with the
upmarket styling, extreme practicality and comfort, advanced technology and
punchy performance. A recently redesigned model goes against the big brands and
popular models including the BMW X1, Mercedes GLA, Jaguar E-Pace and Volvo
XC40.

The second-generation Q3 arrived on the new platform and
larger with the standard Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The engine range in
the US makes a 2.0L turbo available in two states of tune while in other markets
buyers can also have the TDI options and more TFSI versions.

The 2020 Audi Q3 won’t come with many new details but the big news is the new high-performance RS Q3 version. The new model will boost the style and performance of the model to the new levels and will be an alternative for the high-spec rivals.

2020 Audi Q3

2020 Audi Q3: Design

Audi redesigned the subcompact Q3 around the ubiquitous MQB
platform and made it larger as well. The new platform provides higher
powertrain flexibility, technology upgrades and performance while longer
wheelbase, length and wider track mean more space and comfort for the
passengers and cargo.

The styling of the model is modern and balanced with the new
signature elements. The octagonal grille borrows the inspiration from the
range-topping Q8 model and modern-design headlights get also the attention. A
defined charter line and subtly sculpted fenders also contribute to the look of
the model. The rear has also defined lines and shapers with the nicely fitted
bumper and attractive headlights.

The 2020 Audi Q3 will keep the things same regarding the
styling but the brand will add sportier and more aggressively styled RS Q3
version. The high-performance Q3 will boost the aerodynamics with the new
diffuser and much larger air intakes will also impact the styling and
performance. The wider track and lower ride height will also serve to better
performance and stability and form more aggressive appearance. The model will
also use unique wheels with the upgraded brakes peeking behind the spokes. The
rear spoiler and oval exhaust tips will also define the RS Q3.

Interior, equipment:

With the 3.0 inch longer wheelbase and 4.0 inches more in
overall lengths the new-generation Q3 provides more comfort and cargo room. The
cargo volume grew to 54 cubes with the rear seats stowed and to 16.7 cubes with
the functional rear row. The model provides also high-comfort and top-notch
tech features.

The subcompact crossover will offer leather and non-lather
upholstery, dual zone climate control, heated steering wheel, a sunroof and
many other luxury extras. The latest infotainment system with the smartphone
support and large 10.1-inch center screen will also be in the offer as well and
digitalized 10.3-inch instrument cluster.

The safety aspect will also employ the latest technologies including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking with the pedestrian and cyclist detection, surround vision and parking assist.

2020 Audi Q3

2020 Audi Q3: Performance

Audi limited the range of the engine options in the US to
the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine but it comes in two states of
tune. The base 2020 Audi Q3 will make 184 hp and torque of 236 lb-ft. An
upgrade of the engine will provide 228 hp and torque of 258 lb-ft.

The models will use an 8-speed automatic transmission and
Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Audi has no plans to offer a front-wheel drive
version as sad earlier.

The high-performance RS Q3 version will upgrade the
suspension and braking system while the engine should come from the RS 3. In
that application, a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-5 unit makes 400 hp and
torque of 354 pound-feet. With that, the RS Q3 should put the 60-mph run under
5 seconds.

2020 Audi Q3: Release, Price

The 2020 Audi Q3 will hit the market late in the year with
the RS Q3 launch in 2020. The price should again start around $36, 000. 

2020 Cadillac XT5: Refreshed, Changes, Release

Cadillac has been busy with launching the new and redesigned
models with the emphasis on the SUV type versions. The brand has the plan to
deliver the new or refreshed models through 2021. The small XT4 crossover SUV
arrived as the 2019 model and the all-new is also a three-row 2020 XT6 model.
The largest SUV in brand’s range, the Cadillac Escalade should also debut in
the redesigned form and the new CT4 and CT5 sedans are also the part of the
plan. The brand promises also the new electric crossover. However, the brand’s
successful, mid-size XT5 crossover will also get some attention and the
refreshed version will hit the market as the 2020 Cadillac XT5.

Cadillac hasn’t yet revealed the changes and specs of the refreshed XT5 but leaked details reveal modest styling changes. The model should also come with the upgraded tech and safety range and could also bring the turbocharged inline-4 option. 

2020 Cadillac XT5

2020 Cadillac XT5: Design

The luxury XT5 crossover SUV based on GM’s C1XX platform
debuted for the 2017 model year and replaced the old-nomenclature Cadillac SRX.
For the fourth model year after the current generation launch, the XT5 model
will get the mid-cycle update and available details suggest usual styling
updates of one mid-update.

The 2020 Cadillac XT5 will switch from the current grille
design to the new style inspired by the 2016 Escala Concept. The new grille
should provide a more elegant style while it seems that the model will keep the
same headlights design. The shape and size of the model will also keep the
current form and the profile will also look familiar.

The rear will also display a new signature of tealights
while the rest should keep the same style and contours.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the refreshed XT5 should also adopt some
styling cues of the newest SUVs in the range and upgrade tech and safety
equipment.

A well-equipped from the base version, the XT5 will provide
features like the dual zone climate control, keyless ignition and entry, power
front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, etc. The leather upholstery and
heated front seats will be available one step higher than the base trim.

The model will also include the latest infotainment system and should also provide more safety systems available across the range.  The mid-update could also bring the Super Cruise partial self-driving tech.

2020 Cadillac XT5

2020 Cadillac XT5: Powertrains

As for the powertrain options, the 2020 Cadillac XT5 will
surely repeat the currently only available 3.6-liter V-6 engine. This unit is
also under the hood of the new XT6 and makes 310 hp and torque of 271
pound-feet.

The reports suggest, however, the introduction of the GM’s
new 9-speed automatic transmission. The big update could also be an addition of
the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine which is available in other markets.
The version of the engine in China makes 258 hp where the brand offers also the
mild-hybrid system but no information appeared suggesting this possibility for
the US market.

2020 Cadillac XT5: Release, Price

The 2020 Cadillac XT5 should make the premiere in the coming
months with the on-sale date later in the year. The new upgrades should also
lift the price slightly.     

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Updated, New tech and Price

The elegant and fun-to-drive Land Rover Discovery Sport must keep the pace with the new Volvo XC60 and BMW X3 and the refreshed version has been spotted testing ahead of the 2019 debut. The updated Disco will appear as the 2020 model with the debut in early 2019.

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport will come with the refreshed styling and notable upgrades should also boost the interior and equipment offer. The model will also go with the electrification and offer the plug-in hybrid version but probably from 2020 as Land Rover promised.

The Discovery Sport is a good seller for the brand and since the introduction in 2015 more than 300, 000 units were sold and about 120, 000 in 2017. The model exceeded the sales of the Evoque which is set for the full redesigned for the 2020 model year.

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Design

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

The fully disguised prototype of the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport hides several styling modification front and rear as we can conclude. The front section comes with the flat hood and restyled headlights and grille bellow hood’s line.

The grille seems drawing the inspiration from the larger Discovery and we also noticed the resculpted front bumper in the sections around the fog lights. The rear also sports new design taillights while the profile seems to have the same form as the current version.

The Discovery Sport will also get the upgraded underpinning to allow the electrification from 2020. The new Evoque will, on the other hand, switch to the new Premium Traverse Architecture.

Interior, Equipment:

The mid-updated Discovery Sport will also boost the interior design and features to stay neck to neck with the class newcomers. Some reports claim that model will come with the multiple screens infotainment system following the pattern of the Velar model but other reports claim the Touch Pro Duo setup won’t arrive in the refreshed model. Still, the model will get upgraded infotainment features and the center stack.

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Powertrains

As for the for the engine options the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport should get the revised and cleaner diesel units outside the US. The improvements in ride and performance should also hit the US version but no exact details yet.

The current US version exploits a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine available in two versions. The base version delivers 237 hp and torque of 251 pound-feet. A more powerful version provides 286 hp and 295 pound-feet of twisting. The 9-speed automatic and standard all-wheel drive are also part of the deal.

The plug-in hybrid version when arrives should integrate the 1.5-liter combustion engine. It should also be the case with the new Evoque. But the electrified Discovery Sport will likely hit the raids in 2020.

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Release, Price

The updated 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport will go on sale later in 2019. The debut should take place early in the year. The base price will likely move closer to $40, 000.

There won’t be big news for the 2020 Subaru Ascent regarding its design and structure. The all-new Ascent based on the brand’s new global architecture is here for the 2019 model year and it will continue the journey in the same form and style.

The Ascent applies brands latest design language defined with the large signature grille and familiar headlights. It has a tall hood and defined line on the profile that stretching over fenders and door handles.

The Ascent is the all-wheel drive by default. The model can tow up to 5, 000 pounds and Subaru claims 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. The model will return about 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.

The 2020 Subaru Ascent is expected to go on sale next summer. The price won’t change radically from the current. The Ascent starts from $33, 995 and the top Touring version needs $44, 695.

2020 BMW X5 M: News, Design, Engine, Price

The all-new BMW X5 is here for the 2019 model year and the model entered the new generation with the larger body and more interior room and comfort. The popular SUV packs also the advanced technology and top-notch convenience features but has also the high-performance gear.

However, the BMW X5 is still unfinished business as more versions are set to come. BMW will deliver the plug-in hybrid version with about 40 miles of electric range for the 2021 model year. But, for the higher adrenaline drive buyers will also get the M division-branded model. The high-performance model should arrive as the 2020 BMW X5 M and was already spotted several times while testing. BMW hides, however, the most important details. The engine is known but we don’t have official details about the performance. The same engine will also power the coupe-like X6 M version and more M-branded BMW s will appear in near future including the X3 and X4 high-riding models.

2020 BMW X5 M

2020 BMW X5 M: Powertrain

The recently redesigned X5 can already be had with the mighty twin-turbo V-8 engine which takes the place under the hood of the xDrive50i version. The 4.4-liter bi-turbo engine makes 456 hp and torque of 479 pound-feet which is enough to launch this model to 60 mph in 4,6 seconds.

The 2020 BMW X5 M will also pack the 4.4-liter bi-turbo V8 under the hood but the heavily revised version of this engine will add more ponies to the count. The M division X5 version should produce around 600 hp and torque around 533 pound-feet. The Competition version could add additional power hitting around 625 hp.

The model will use an 8-speed automatic transmission routing the power to the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The sophisticated system debuted in the new M5 and we will see how it performs in the X5. The X5 M will also get the special-tuned suspension and unique wheel and exhaust system combined with the powerful braking system.

2020 BMW X5 M

2020 BMW X5 M: Design

Like the 2019 BMW X5, the M division version will benefit from the use of the modular, lightweight CLAR platform and apply the same design language as the conventional X5 but with additional performance-oriented touches.

The 2020 BMW X5 M will get more attention thanks to the beefier front bumper with larger air openings from the front side and the rear will also get special treatment. The rear bumper and quad exhaust setup will add sportier appearance to the rear side and unique 21-inch alloy wheels and M division mirrors will also distinguish this version from the rest of the range.

Interior, Equipment:

2020 Cadillac XT4: Changes, Equipment, Specs, Price

With the all-new, XT4 small luxury SUV, Cadillac has the model to rival the subcompacts like the BMW X1, Lexus UX, and Audi Q3. But being larger and more expensive than these models the elegant, turbocharged, efficient and well-equipped XT4 can also be an alternative to the BMW X, Audi Q5, Mercedes GLC, etc.

The XT4 is a smaller brand’s SUV than the XT5 and with the distinctive styling but Cadillac is also testing the new flagship, three-row model which should debut early next year and comes as the Cadillac XT6.

On the other hand, the 2020 Cadillac XT4 will come with the several new color options and more standard equipment. The model might also offer another trim option.

2020 Cadillac XT4

2020 Cadillac XT4: Design

With the new, sharp styling inspired by the Escala Concept, the XT4 is more effective than the larger XT5 and the new XT6 SUV should also have similar front and rear end design as the smallest Cadillac SUV.

The XT4 comes with the signature LED daytime running lights and also wears more defined lines and shapes than larger XT5. The mesh grille is also sleeker and sportier than on the brand’s next in hierarchy SUV. The sharp character and roof lines also contribute to the look while the rear has brand’s attractive, vertical taillights and a bit of the sports flair thanks to the rear spoiler and the sharply sculpted tailgate.

The 2020 Cadillac XT4 version will just bring new color options and possibly new trim level.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the XT4 is also rich with the shapes on the dash and also comes with the high-quality materials. The modern tech is also the part of the package in every version but the XT4 also comes equipped with supportive seats and roomy rear row. The cargo capacity is up to 48.9 cubes while with the all seats up it offers 22.5 cubes.

The model will also offer the latest, large-sized touchscreen infotainment system with the smartphone features in every version. There will also be plenty of modern safety systems as the base equipment.

2020 Chevy Blazer: News, Design, Specs

After the redesign of the Equinox and Traverse SUVs, Chevy has recently introduced the all-new, mid-size Blazer model to split the difference between the two mentioned. The new five-seater version arrived as the 2019 model and it is reborn of the nameplate discontinued in 2005. However, Chevy switched to the more civilized unibody design instead of the truck-based roots in the past. The model has an angry new look and well-equipped interiors. The power comes from the non-turbo engines and three trims are available in the first model year.

The 2020 Chevy Blazer version will broad the equipment list with the new options and possibly additional trim level. Many would like the model to come with the new turbocharged engine option but Chevy might wait for the later model years to go with that move.

2020 Chevy Blazer

2020 Chevy Blazer: Design

The Chevy Blazer is the new design and styling in the brand’s range and with its angry look, the model won’t lack the attention. Chevy adopted the old nameplate to the new unibody design with the more comfort in mind while the body-on-frame structure of the previous version left in the history. However, the truck-based Trailblazer version is still available in the global markets.

The stylish, new Balzer model will continue to the next model year with the new color options and the new special treatment exterior package is also the possibility. The model has an aggressive, sculpted body design and the new front fascia among the bowtie brand’s SUVs.

The narrow headlights and aggressive grille design define the front-end style while the profile also gets attention with the sculpted fenders, swoopy character line and floating roof. The rear has also plenty of sports cues and nice taillights.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the Blazer is a toned-down design compared to the aggressive exterior style. The model has nice dash design and offers modern tech and convenient features. The cargo capacity limit is at 64.2 cubes with the non-functional rear seats.

The model will provide the latest infotainment system with the 8-inch screen interface and smartphone features in all versions. The part of the equipment list will also be a WiFi, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear row, premium upholstery and sound system, etc. The model won’t also lack advanced safety systems.

2020 Chevy Blazer

2020 Chevy Blazer: Powertrains

The power options for the 2020 Chevy Blazer will include the two engines from the 2019 model. The base 2020 Blazer will get the power from the 2.5-liter inline-4 engine. The engine is good for 193 hp and torque of 188 pound-feet.

As the power upgrade, Chevy will offer a 3.0-liter V-6 engine. The V-6 version will provide 305 hp and torque of 269 pound-feet. In any case, the 9-speed automatic transmission will be in the pair and the model will also provide the sophisticated all-wheel drive with the twin-clutch rear differential.

As the possibility for the next Balzer, the reports suggest the introduction of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine but Chevy has promised that yet.

2020 Chevy Blazer: Arrival, Price

The 2020 Chevy Blazer will have the launch date in late 2019. The price range will again start around $30, 000.

2020 Jeep Renegade: Changes, Plug-in hybrid, Release

The smallest Jeep on the road, the compact Renegade crossover SUV entered the 2019 model year with updates on all fronts. The model received more modern styling and updated interior followed by the latest infotainment tech and newly introduced active safety systems. The model is available with the different powertrains and capable off-road gear.

However, Jeep announced earlier the electrification of its entire range. The brand promised 12 electric powertrains including the mild-hybrid and hybrid versions, plug-in hybrid and battery electric propulsion options by 2020. The Renegade model will also benefit from this strategy and the biggest news for the 2020 Jeep Renegade will be the introduction of the plug-in hybrid version. Other versions after the recent update will return with minimal modifications.

2020 Jeep Renegade

2020 Jeep Renegade: Design

The compact Jeep Renegade is more modern looking crossover thanks to the recent refresh.

The lower front fascia has a more modern design while the rear comes with the refreshed taillights with the modified X pattern. The model will be available with different wheel options ranging from 16- to 19 inches.

As for the 2020 Jeep Renegade, there won’t be anything new to see. Even the new plug-in hybrid version won’t differ much from the combustion engine-powered versions. The badging and a few other details will help to recognize the electrified model.

Interior, Equipment:

Jeep updated also the interior of the 2019 version and there won’t be major changes for the new model year. The recent refresh introduced the redesigned center stack and Jeep also improved the storage compartments. The new USB port is also available but the smallest Jeep is also equipped with the latest tech and safety systems.

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: 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.
