2019 Ford Fusion Facelift is not sleeker than its predecessor

Ford have recently been dropping hints about a new Ford Fusion, and what I mean is that they will soon reveal the redesigned sedan for 2020. But even before this, they are already considering a minor upgrade for the mid-sized 2019 model year. Some of the more noticeable upgrades include visual cues on the outside like a new grille and LED driving lamps up front, as well as a new trunk lid panel and LED tail lights in the rear.

As for technology, the Ford Fusion has now been given Ford’s driver assist systems, which they had just rebranded as Co-Pilot360 earlier this month. Now, this comes standard throughout the Fusion line.

Having said that, even the base model Fusion S will be equipped with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, auto high-beam headlights, and a rear backup camera. If you want to opt for something more premium, then there is also the Co-Pilot360 Assist. This adds adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, voice activated navigation with Sirius XM Traffic and Travel Link.

Earlier this week, we talked about Volkswagen’s plans to halt the production of the US spec Passat for a few weeks during spring. And now, we just learned new things about its European counterpart. The Wolfsburg based manufacturer said that the Euro spec Passat will be out in the market very soon, though they did not give a particular date.

Dr. Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen brand, said in his speech at the annual Volkswagen Media Conference, that the Passat is almost ready to arrive in dealerships across the Old Continent. But he stops there and does not give any other details. However, he did mention that the Passat will be available as Variant and hybrid models.

Unlike the US spec Passat, the European variant of the model sits on an MQB platform. The eighth generation of the D segment vehicle was launched way back in 2014, as a premium car that is still affordable to most. This model will be available as a traditional sedan, a practical wagon, and a rugged Alltrack wagon.

Audi has officially released images of its new A6 sedan. While this eight-generation sedan was scheduled to make an appearance at this year's 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the brand was forced to release photos and information after images were leaked to the internet. This makes the new A6 (C8) official as it prepares to join the A7 and the A8.

Under the hood, the new A6 shows that it has the same maneuverability as a compact while also having the handling of a sports car. The redesigned suspensions means the use of aluminum in a number of areas and aids in ride quality even when getting the optional 21-inch wheels fitted with the low-profile tires. For many owners, this mix is rarely seen as something that offers comfort.

While the new version and the previous one may appear to be similar, a closer look reveals some differences. In terms of dimensions, the changes are really minute. The new A6 is longer by 0.3 inches, wider by 0.5 inches, and taller by 0.1 inch. However the front fascia is now more pronounced and combined with the wide singleframe grille, giving it a look much like that of the A7.

Finally, the refreshed 2019 Buick Envision has been revealed to us by the automaker. Buick then says that most of these changes on both its looks and its mechanism were made in response to their customers’ feedback for the crossover when the 2016 model year was launched.

The 2019 Buick Envision now has a new front fascia, with the new headlights and the grille that make the facelifted model look more like the other new Buick models. It now sits on a set of 19 inch wheels and the rear has got new taillights as well. HID headlights now come as a standard, and customers could go for the optional LEDs on the top two trim levels.

They can also opt for the optional 2.0 liter inline four engine that carries out 295 pound feet of torque, which is a good improvement from the previous 260. Power output, however, remains at 252 horsepower. This engine is paired to a nine speed automatic transmission instead of the six speed transmission on its predecessor.

Buick has plans of refreshing its popular Envision compact crossover for the 2019 model year. Automotive News was able to get a sneak peek of the model recently, which is supposedly getting a couple of subtle changes, but still noticeable - up front and in the rear.

The outgoing model has been out in the United States for about a year and a half, but with this segment (SUV market) being the most competitive amongst the rest, manufacturers are seeing a need to regularly update their vehicles.

The automaker wants to align the 2019 Buick Envision with the brand’s other models, namely its best selling Encore. It was back in May 2016 when the Envision was first launched as a first entry model in the compact crossover segment, and it quickly became the brand’s number 3 seller behind two other crossovers, which are the Encore and Enclave. In its first full year on the market in 2017, it sold a total of 41,040 units.

The Ford Edge Facelift recently made its debut with a United States specification, and now, it is time for us to see the new Ford Edge with its European face. We are slated to see the company’s most technologically advanced SUV ever at the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show in early March, just before it goes on sale in European dealerships this year.

Similar to its American relative, the refreshed version of the European Edge will receive a wider radiator grille with unique finish that is different from every trim level. What’s also standard across the range now are LEDs on both the headlights and taillights, with LED daytime running lamps, which can be added as an option.

Under the hood of the European Ford Edge is the same 2.0 liter diesel engine, as the company decided that no gasoline motors will be added. Another highlight here is that the EcoBlue version of the diesel will be utilizing an advanced turbocharging system that enables it to carry out 238 horsepower (175 kilowatts). Ford promises that they have worked on the low-end torque and noise, vibration and harshness, while providing smooth and linear acceleration too.

After publishing a teaser design sketch last month, Skoda finally revealed the mildly updated Fabia Facelift in a hatchback as well as a wagon variant. The changes on its design are so subtle that you may not notice them right away. But we’re here to point these out for you. Let’s start off with the headlights and taillights. These now use LED tech, making the rear look like the facelifted Octavia.

Customers can now get a set of 18-inch alloy wheels exclusively for the hatchback version, which is a first for the Fabia. Both the front and the rear bumpers have been given some changes too but these are not very apparent. While these revisions are welcome, these probably will not get you so excited that you’d want to go straight to your dealership.

As for technology upgrades, the cabin has now been equipped with a 6.5-inch touchscreen that have Bluetooth, USB, and SD card connectivity. The car gets the Swing system as standard but customers can then opt for the Swing Plus and Amundsen setup if they want features like CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink.

The outgoing Mercedes-Benz C Class began production in the year 2015. And even though it may not be that old, the automaker decided to already give it a mid-cycle refresh and finally, it has arrived with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan. The automaker recently just took the camouflage off the vehicle, before setting out to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

When looking at the new C-Class sedan from the outside, changes seem to be very subtle but noticeable. For instance, the single bar diamond grille from the AMG Line now comes standard, surrounded by new LED headlights that are now standard as well.

The front fascia looks tweaked with horizontal fins in the side air intakes. The rear fascia has also been redesigned, now with an additional diffuser. The headlights and the taillights also got a minor design change and an LED upgrade, and the sedan now sits on a set of 17 inch twin five spoke wheels that are standard. Customers will now have more paint options like Mojave Silver Metallic and Emerald Green Metallic.

When the Skoda Octavia went through its mid-cycle refresh, which was eventually revealed in October of 2016, it did not get an all-digital instrument cluster, unlike the Volkswagen Golf and SEAT Leon that share one platform. And because of that, Skoda decided to make up for lost time and is now going to offer buyers an option where they will replace the analog driver’s display with a fully digital screen like that you will find in the Karoq compact crossover, but of course with an added cost.

The new fully digital instrument panel has recently been added into the Czech configurator, where it is listed, and has an asking price of 8 900 Kč (that is equivalent to about €351 at current exchange rates). We are expecting to see the facelifted Octavia with this new feature, earlier next month when it goes to the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, alongside the tweaked Fabia.

Physically, the digital instrument panel measures 12.3 inches in diagonal, wherein the digital instrument panel sports a resolution of 1,4400 by 540 pixels. Drivers have an option to go 2D or 3D when it comes to navigation information. It also features different layouts including Classic, Digital, Info-Profile, and Reduced.

At the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month, we won’t be seeing the all new Ford Focus. But there’s something else there that we’re sure you’ll want to see for yourself. The automaker’s entry level model in Europe, the Ka+, is currently going through some physical changes. Sources say that it will also come with an Active version, like that of the Fiesta Active that came out last year.

The pseudo crossover is more than just what’s apparent on the exterior. It has got a new plastic body cladding, and its suspension has been raised by about +23 millimeters / 0.9 inches. It now has a wider track as well as larger front anti roll bars.

The automaker also decided that they will tweak the electronic power steering as well, therefore making the Ford Ka+ Active feel more like a crossover when being taken out for a ride. Dampers had been retuned as well, enabling a smoother ride when driving on bumpy roads, while the new Active Rollover Prevention system has an updated security, for when you strap your luggage on the roof.

After releasing images of the new 2019 Jeep Cherokee, the American brand has finally unveiled in metal the world-renowned mid-size sports utility vehicle at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.

Serving as an update or a refresh of the fifth generation of the Jeep Cherokee (KL generation), the 2019 iteration of the vehicle features a new, authentic and more premium design that remains faithful to the iconic Jeep styling. As previous images had already shown, the new Jeep Cherokee features an all-new front end that aligns with the mid-size SUV on the premium side of the Jeep family while sporting the iconic Jeep styling.

For instance, the new 2019 Jeep Cherokee now features conventional unified headlights. The new bi-LED projector headlamps have incorporated the signature Cherokee daytime running looks into one fixture, providing a fresh look, allowing the 2019 Cherokee to follow the visual lead of the latest iterations of the Jeep Compass and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The new 2019 Cherokee also features dual LED fog lights on the re-sculpted front fascia. Likewise, the new 2019 Cherokee has retained its signature waterfall hood and is mated to the seven-slot grille – signifying the mid-size SUV as a member of the Jeep family – in a single piece. Clean visual lines separate the sloping lightweight aluminum hood from the front fenders.

BMW’s 2 Series Active Tourer finally gets its first ever mid-cycle update, and if we could describe the facelift in one word, we would say that it was very “discreet”. This minivan isn’t just the first for BMW, but it also marks their first attempt to do a front wheel drive too.

Both variants, namely the five seater 2 Series Active Tourer, as well as the seven seat Gran Tourer, will be getting the new paint scheme of Jucaro Beige and Sunset Orange, together with the six new options for alloy wheels that vary in size from 17 to 19 inches.

When looking at it from the outside, the changes are very hard to see, which is why we are going to point them out for you. First, the LED headlights have a more hexagonal shape like the new BMW models, while the rear features light emitting diodes that exhibit different graphics. The kidney grille, single-piece air intake, and LED fog lamps are also new here.

Jeep had recently teased the refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee mid-size sports utility vehicle that will be unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. The refresh included a new front end with a tweaked nose and headlight design. While the Jeep Renegade isn't getting a major refresh yet, recently leaked images show that the brand’s compact SUV is getting some subtle changes to its styling for the 2019 model year.

An Instagram user who goes by the name “Renegade Jeeps” has posted two images of the upcoming 2019 Jeep Renegade. One of the images shows the front end of the Renegade, while the other picture reveals the center stack inside the compact crossover. The Instagram user described the enhancements made on the front end of the Jeep Renegade as a facelift, although these visual tweaks weren’t major ones. For instance, the front end of the new 2019 Jeep Renegade features more angular elements than before. The headlights have also been revised, and they now sport new rectangular sections in the middle section. Furthermore, cutouts that border the circular headlights are now given a square-like shape.

Likewise, the new 2019 Jeep Renegade now comes with light-colored element around each rim. On the other hand, the overall trim of the grille in the 2019 Renegade has been made lighter than other parts of the body, resulting to a two-tone character up front. In addition, the edges of each of the seven slots on the iconic grille are now sharper than those on the current Renegade. Furthermore, the distance between the fog lights seems to have been reduced.

In a country where sport utility vehicles and crossover are of high demand, keeping things fresh could spell success. Kia Motors America is aware of this, which is why it has just unveiled the refreshed 2019 Kia Sorento SUV at the 2017 Los Angeles Motor Show. The tweaks made were subtle but smarter, making the vehicle more appealing to customers in the United States.

As early as July this year, Kia already revealed the mid-cycle facelift of the Sorento in South Korea. The European facelift followed in September in Frankfurt, Germany. Now, it is the US refresh that got unwrapped, and this time it was in LA.

Still as rugged, refined and capable as before, the 2019 Kia Sorento comes standard as a three-row SUV with seating for seven passengers and is offered in five trim levels: L, LX, EX, SX and SXL. Kia has tweaked both its exterior and interior, but no major design changes were made. For instance, the new Sorento is provided with new front and rear fascias that lend the SUV with a more sophisticated and mature look. Its more detailed grille is now flanked by new headlights (full LED on SX and SXL), while its newly sculpted bumper now dons redesigned ice cube-style fog lamps that employ projection bulbs for EX and SX trims and LED for the SXL trim.

2018 Acura RLX sports sedan is scheduled to come out in U.S. showrooms on November 7. The lineup only consists of two models, both featuring a new simplified style.

The lower trim would be the RLX P-AWS which has a $54,900 price tag, including an extra $965 destination charge. The flagship RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, on the other hand, starts at $61,900, minus the destination fee. If you remember the price of the outgoing model, the latter actually costs $4,050 less than the current model with the Advance Package.

For the 2018 model year, customers could get the sports sedan in two new colour options including the Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl, both of which are new hues for the RLX. In the cabin are redesigned Milano leather seats, which are finished in a rich Espresso hue, and matched with high-contrast piping and stitching. A black headliner is also available.

Since its release in 2014, the Citroen C4 Cactus has always been loved by car enthusiasts, thanks to its quirky look. But for 2018, it seems like the French automaker plans to give the compact hatchback a more conventional look instead. Aside from that, the automaker will be giving it substantial upgrades, inside and out - from a softer suspension to a floating-roof design. Plus, customers will have over 31 exterior combinations to choose from.

But if you were a huge fan of the C4 Cactus’ original look, there’s nothing to worry about because some of the design cues still carry over. These include the Airbump side panels but these have been minimized and moved further down to the bottom sill. The sleek headlights also remain from the 2014 model year. The company explains that the C4 will still be bold, while it “gains enhanced status”.

For the exterior, customers can choose from nine colour options including Polar White, Platinum Grey, Sport Red and some others. The body can then be paired with your choice of five different alloy wheels - from 16-inch grey and black square designs on the lower trim models, or the 17-inch cross wheel that is available in several colours too.

Land Rover’s Range Rover luxury sports utility vehicle is greeting the 2018 model year with various visual and technical updates and upgrades, essentially making the latest iteration a facelifted version. Aside from major tweaks, the new Range Rover would be soon available as a plug-in hybrid.
