2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport: News, Design, Specs, Price

A luxury compact crossover SUV from the Land Rover family, the Discovery Sport gets the attention with the handsome styling while comes well-equipped in all versions and is also capable to go beyond the paved roads. The current version of the model replaced the LR2 for the 2016 model year and the 2018 Discovery Sport gained the updated turbo four engine. The 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport is closing to the launch date but won’t bring substantial upgrades besides some updated electronics.

However, the brand is already prepping the new version of the Disco Sport for the 2020 model year and it’s not clear would it be the new-gen model already or the thorough mid-cycle upgrade. In any case, the 2020 Disco should make some adjustments to its styling but will also go with the deeper upgrades and the PHEV version and all to be the better rival to the newest Volvo SUVs.

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Design

The current Discovery Sport is both elegant and sporty and the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport will be the repeat of the current form. The firm will likely offer a few new cosmetic features and possibly new wheel options to refresh the offer but there won’t be substantial upgrades for the upcoming version.

However, if we wait a bit more the firm is working on the major overfull for the 2020 model year and while there should be typical mid-cycle updates on the outside the model should also go with deeper under skin upgrades as well. The current D8 platform should free the room for the Jaguar Land Lover Premium Traverse Architecture which will also be the base of the new Evoque.  It should provide better driving and comfort and open new drivetrain solutions.

On the outside, we should see the slightly revised front and rear fascia and the model should also grow in size.

Interior, equipment:

The cabin of the 2019 Discovery Sport will also remain the same. The model scores high with the material quality and visibility and will also offer plenty of options and upgrades. There will be a modern infotainment system and safety equipment plus premium features and materials.

The 2020 version will, however, bring more radical upgrades and better comfort. It should gain more passenger and cargo space and be fitted with the upgraded materials and equipment to challenge the redesigned and all-new Volvos.

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Powertrains

The 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport will return to the market with the same engine options. The firm updated the four-cylinder turbocharged engine for the 2018 model year and should continue to the new model year with the same specs.

A 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine provides 237 hp and torque of 251 pound-feet in the lower-spec variant. A more potent version improves to 286 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. All Discos come with the all-wheel drive and nine-speed automatic transmission system.

The 2020 version should, however, gain an electrified powertrain as Land Rover promised each model to offer the greener powertrain by 2020. Details about the electrified Discovery Sport powertrain are still scarce but with the new platform, the model will surely improve the performance and efficiency.

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Arrival, Price

The 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport will hit the market by the end of the year. The price will stay close to the current range which starts from $37, 795.

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: 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 Range Rover Evoque: Redesign, Specs, News, Release

After the investment of about $1.3 billion and hours of testing and designing, JLR has brought the all-new Evoque in front of the public. The brand’s fast-selling and smallest SUV benefits from the improvements on all fronts but still remains recognizable form.

The second-generation 2020 Range Rover Evoque comes on the new platform and with the almost all-new body structure. The model improves also the interior comfort combining it with the top-notch tech and safety technologies. 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 brand will offer the new Evoque with nice contrasting body painting options and wheel sizes ranging from 17- 21 inches.

Interior, equipment:

The interior of the new Evoque comes with the improved comfort and the latest technologies. The stretched wheelbase opens more space for the rear passengers and the new seats also boost the comfort. 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

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.

The base Evoque will use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium engine. The unit makes 246 hp and torque of 369 lb-ft compared to the previous version 237 hp and torque of 251 lb-ft. In the combination with the engine is a 9-speed automatic gearbox.

The option will be a P300 version with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and 48-volt mild-hybrid system. The power it provides is 296 hp and the MHEV system. Using also the 14.7-hp belt-integrated generator it provides 6 percent improved efficiency and improved torque response.

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.

2020 Range Rover Evoque: Release, Price

The 2020 Range Rover Evoque will go on sale in the US next year after the debut at the next Chicago Auto Show. We will know the price after the debut but it should go slightly up from the current base $42, 000.

2020 Acura RDX: Changes, Specs, Price

Acura’s best-selling model RDX entered the third generation as the 2019 version and the model arrived with more style, turbocharged power, torque vectoring all-wheel drive, high-class interior and much more. The new generation RDX sports the new exterior design and better performance and in the fast-growing segment, it was on the sales chart in front of the names such as the BMW X3, Audi Q3. Mercedes GLC, etc., at some periods.

So, after the comprehensive redesign, we shouldn’t expect much to change with the arrival of the next 2020 Acura RDX version. The model will bring new color options and probably more standard features.

2020 Acura RDX

2020 Acura RDX: Design

The recent redesign brought the new RDX on the new platform and larger in all directions. The model rides on the 2.6-inch longer wheelbase while has 2.4 inches more in lengths than the version its replaced.

The new generation model also adopted the design language defined with the pentagonal grille and attractive Jewel Eye headlights. But the more angular body, sweeping lines on the side panels and sharply styled rear also boost the visual impression.

As for the 2020 Acura RDX, things will stay the same from the visual point of view. What we sound expect are new shades and wheel options.

Interior, Equipment:

The high-end interior is also the strong side of the RDX. The model combines the dynamic dash design and specific controls and dials with the premium, contrasting materials and nice wood, aluminum and other accents. The RDX also offers a max cargo capacity of 58,9 cubes and with the rear seats functional up to 29, 5 cubes.

The model also comes with the advanced tech and safety features. Even the base version will have a 10.2-inch screen-based infotainment system, nice speakers, USBs, etc. The entry-level model will also provide keyless ignition, LED headlights, heated front seats, etc. The standard safety equipment will also be numerous. The RDX will rely on adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision wringing with automatic emergency braking and other usual gear.

The available upgrades will add the leather upholstery, navigation, more speakers, blind-spot monitoring, ventilated front seats, surround view cameras and more.

2020 Acura RDX

The 2020 Acura RDX will return with the willing 2.0-liter turbo-4 with 272 hp and 280 pound-feet of torque at disposal. The engine will work in the conjunction with the 10-speed automatic transmission.

The model will offer the all-wheel drive which can transfer up to 70 percent of the torque to the rear wheels. Improving the handling will also be the torque vectoring which can route power left to right up to 100 percent. Another level of the drive control will provide the Integrated Dynamics System with the different modes for the particular road conditions.

As for the fuel efficiency, the RDX will be around 24 mpg combined regardless of the two- or all-wheel drive.

2020 Acura RDX: Release, Price

The 2020 Acura RDX will hit the market in the second half of 2019. The price will likely go slightly up from the current base $37, 300 and climb over $48, 000 with the most of options loaded.

2019 Nissan Xterra: News, Design, Release

With the recently redesigned Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco in the prospect, body-on-frame, off-road-focused SUVs gained the interest of buyers again. That is why Nissan might reconsider the return of the discontinued, off-road ready Nissan Xterra. The model based on the aged mid-size Frontier truck might return after the introduction of the new-generation Frontier and with the design inspired by the global Navara truck.

The rumors are circulating that after the introduction of the body-on-frame, seven-seat Terra SUV based on the Navara pickup truck in China and other Asian markets, Nissan might also offer the successor of the Xterra model alongside the redesigned Frontier truck. The new Terra SUV replaced the Paladin model which was the Xterra version for the Chinese market.  Now, since this model is based on global Navara truck which should be the base for the new-generation Frontier, there are chances that Nissan might introduce the replacement for the capable Xterra as well. According to some reports, the model could even arrive as the 2019 Nissan Xterra or without the X.

2019 Nissan Xterra

2019 Nissan Xterra: Design

As the last version of the Xterra model was based on the same architecture as the Frontier pickup, the new 2019 Nissan Xterra should also use the same recipe. Nissan hasn’t revealed details but the new Frontier truck should borrow heavily from the global Navara truck and the Terra SUV available in Asia also uses the Navara’s proven underpinning which also underpins the Mercedes X-Class pickup. And like the new Ranger truck shares the bones with the global model and will borrow the chassis to the new Bronco the global Navara should be the base of the 2019 Xterra or Terra or however it would be called.

With the similar underpinning, the new Xterra model should also share similar styling cues with the global Navara truck and Terra seven-seater. That means the new version of the V-motion grille combined with the new LED-accentuated headlights and sleeker front bumper. The side body sculpting should have pronounced fender flares and dynamic waistline.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the design should also follow the pattern of the global, mid-size truck. That should mean nicer materials and better comfort compared the dated Frontier truck and discontinued Xterra SUV.

The V-shaped center stack should come with the newest infotainment system and connectivity options. The model should also offer the luxury options and modern safety gear as well.

2019 Nissan Xterra

2019 Nissan Xterra: Powertrain

As for the engine options, the 2019 Nissan Xterra should share the same units as the new generation Frontier. Nissan promised the new V-6 engine for the redesigned Frontier and Titian trucks. The Xterra model would also use the same engine as well as the four-cylinder variant.

The global Navara-based Terra SUV goes with the petrol or diesel engines depending on the market. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder making around 183 hp is under the hood of the Chinese version. In other markets, this model can be had with the 2.3-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine from the Navara truck with 163 or 190 horsepower. The V-6 petrol is also available in some regions.

The US Xterra could also gain the diesel engine as this trend also was introduced with the new mid-size trucks. The new transmission should also improve the efficiency and off-road gear would be up to the task as well.

2019 Nissan Xterra: Arrival, Price

Nissan said that the new Terra model will go on sale in Asian and African markets but hasn’t promised the US replacement for the Xterra model. The rumors claim the model will arrive as the 2019 Nissan Xterra or latter after the introduction of the new Frontier.

With the more than 2.2 million sold units during the nearly 20-year life cycle, the model has become very important for the brand and soon after the recent redesign we should expect new upgrades of the model.

The new system should provide improved range and high-performance ratings. The 2020 BMW X5 should also bring the M version but BMW is still short on details.

2020 BMW X5

2020 BMW X5: Design

The styling of the 2020 BMW X5 and the new versions won’t change much from the form of the recently redesigned X5.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel: News, Specs, Price

The unstoppable, purpose-built Jeep Wrangler entered the new chapter with more sophistication and comfort inside while preserved its iconic style and improved its off-road capability and efficiency. The new-generation Wrangler can be had with the pricy options, different cab styles, turbocharged powertrain and few advanced safety systems.

Despite being all-new for the 2018 version, Jeep has also more upgrades to offer for the new model year and the diesel engine option is among the most important. The oil-burning powerplant should appear for the 2019 model year and buyers in the US and on the OLD Continent will get distinctive options. Jeep should also add a new special version alongside the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel while the current power options will transit to the new model year in the same form.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel

2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel: Performance

The new generation Wrangler introduced the turbocharged engine with the mild-hybrid add-on while continues the V-6 gas engine. The new automatic transmission also comes to the play and diesel engine will appear in the 2019 version.

The Wrangler continues on the body-on-frame architecture and has the solid axles with the coil spring setup. The model also exploits the two-speed, part-time four-wheel drive system in Sahara and Sport models while adds the limited slip differential as an option. The Selec-Trac transfer case is also available but the Rubicon version gets the hardcore off-road gear including the Dana axles, locking differentials, low-range gearing and more.

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will, however, contribute with more torque and efficiency. The Wranglers in the US will have a 3.0-liter V-6 turbo diesel under the hood and in the combination with the automatic transmission only. Expect the power around 260 hp while torque sets around 440 pound-feet. The Euro-spec Wrangler will, however, get the four-cylinder turbodiesel. A 2.2 -liter four-cylinder oil-burner is the unit from the Jeep Cherokee and will make 197 hp and torque of 332 lb-ft. It will also come with the 8-speed automatic gearbox exclusively.

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.

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.
