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.

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.

With the increased passenger comfort, the new Evoque improved also the cargo area to 50.5 cubic feet.

The handsome look of the model is matched with the high-quality materials and rich textures inside the cabin. 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 Range Rover Evoque: Powertrains

The power for the new 2020 Range Rover Evoque comes from the two powertrain options in the US while the diesel options will appear on the Old Continent.

JLR hasn’t confirmed yet the plug-in hybrid powertrain for the US which will appear in Europe next year. The system will integrate the 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with the power output of 197 hp in the combination with the starter generator and electric motor. The 40.2-hp generator will power the front wheels while the 106-hp electric motor will spin the rear wheels and get the power from the 11.3- kWh battery.

The model also features the new-generation all-wheel-drive system which can transfer the power between the rear wheels simulating the torque vectoring and can also lock the rear wheels. The Terrain Select 2 system will also be available with the modes for Sand, Mud, Snow, Eco, etc. The SUV boasts also lifted ground clearance. The 8.3 inches of the ground clearance comes with the 20-degree approach and 30-degree departure angles while can go through the 23.6-inch deep water.

BMW’s first in the lineup and fun to drive crossover, the X1 has been around since the 2016 model year in its second generation.

The model will go on sale at some point in 2019 while should show what it has to offer later this year.

The 2019 BMW X1 will bring some visual upgrades, not radical judging by what we can conclude from the prototype version. Some updates will also be inside the cabin including the materials and tech while we don’t have details about what BMW has in mind regarding the powertrains.

2019 BMW X1

2019 BMW X1: Styling Changes

The small package crossover won’t bring radical styling changes with the next refresh. The prototype version of the 2019 BMW X1 has disguised front end section and rear bumper and like every mid-cycle update, this will also focus on the soft parts while the size and shape will remain at the same points.

The front side of the model seems to have sleeker kidney grille version bracketed by the new design headlights. The headlight graphics look like on brand’s latest models and the front bumper has slightly different sculpting as well.

With the capability of delivering 228 hp and 258 lb-ft combined with the precise steering and suspension, the model provides great driving dynamics but BMW will surely try to draw more from the refreshed 2019 BMW X1. So, we should expect some efficiency and performance improvements.

The plug-in hybrid version of this model is also expected sometime in the near future but not for the upcoming model year.

2019 BMW X1: Arrival, Price

The 2019 BMW X1 should uncover its secrets later in the year and go on sale in 2019. The current X1 starts from $33, 900 but BMW will make some price corrections and we should expect the price to go slightly up.

BMW replaced the very popular but aging X5 with the new-generation model recently and now moving the focus to the coupe-like styled X6. The Sports Activity Coupe X6 was recently spotted testing in the disguised form but the model looks to be in the final production body and the version spotted seems to be the hot M50i.

With the slightly revised exterior style, the X6 like the all-new X5 will switch to the new architecture and should also grow in size. The new-gen X5 gained inches in all directions and the wheelbase is also 1.6 inches longer. The similar treatment is expected for the sportier X6.

Interior, Equipment:

Audi hinted the arrival of the Q4 model with the TT Off-Road Concept at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show and a recently caught prototype of the model seems to have the production-ready form. The new Q-range Audi should hit the market as the 2020 model and it should borrow heavily from the Q3 version.

Although we heard from Audi that the Q4 won’t just be the coupe version of the Q3 yet more distinctive model, two models will share ubiquitous MQB platform much of the gear. The Q4 could, however, ride on the slightly longer wheelbase than the Q3.

As for the styling, the prototype version reveals more angular shape than on the Q3 with the coupe-style profile. The front section includes familiar, single-frame grille and pair of the Led headlights with the shape similar to what we can see on the Q3 model.

Thanks to the fast-sloping roofline the model looks more aggressive from the profile than the conventional shaped Q3 and a more sculpted tailgate add also to the sportier appearance.

Interior, Equipment:

Behind the steering wheel, the new Q4 should also borrow heavily from the Q3 and recent brand’s models. The horizontally oriented lines and shapes combined with the electronic devices will dominate on the dash. Audi will also employ high-end materials, aluminum and wood trim to improve the look and feel of the interior.

The model will also arrive with the latest tech and safety achievements and convenience upgrades. The new Q-range Audi will adopt the brand’s latest 9.2-inch infotainment display as well as the 10.25-inch instrument cluster. Audi will also equip the new coupe-like crossover with the advanced safety technologies and systems like adaptive cruise control, active lane assists and blind spot monitors.

2020 Audi Q4: Powertrains

Power for the new 2020 Audi Q4 should come from the various engine options depending on the market. The MQB platform allows also the PHEV powertrain application but it remains the possibility in the latter phase of the life cycle.

The model will utilize the new generation 1.5-liter four-cylinder TSI engines with two outputs around 128 and 148 hp respectively. The upgraded 2.0-liter TDI diesels will also appear on the Old Continent and should produce 148 and 187 hp.

The version for the US will likely adopt single 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. The high-performance RS Q4 version should also feature and use a 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo engine with the power around 400 hp.
