Hans-Juergen Abt remembers: "The very first Scirocco was the absolute star amongst compact sport coupes." The administrator of the famous car tuner is just as enthralled with the offspring of the Wolfsburger innovator: "The Scirocco looks really dynamic and the handling is very agile." Even more so with the Kempten revisions.

They really stir things up a bit. The ABT Front spoiler makes the distinctive face of the coupe even more unique. Even while on stand still it is apparent who the track or street leader is, as the ABT Scirocco appear to be starving for the kilometers in front of it.

This feeling is maintained by the fine lines on both sides, where the ABT Side skirts take up and carry on the smooth structural design. The pointed air inlets and edges in the doors emphasize the vitality of the bodywork which rises at the rear. The ABT Volkswagen Scirocco appears ferocious and very vibrant.

A few days back, we discussed that Ford’s plan involves retiring most of its compact cars and sedans and replacing them with SUVs. However, there would be two small models that will remain in the lineup -- the Mustang and the Focus Active, at least for the United States. So what is the automaker’s reason for doing so? Well, the answer is as simple as this - money.

To support that statement, Jim Hackett, Ford’s CEO said in his interview with Automotive News that they have decided to just focus on the healthier part of the business, referring to trucks and crossovers. In the first quarter of 2018 alone, the company’s sales of $3 billion all came from this segment. Soon, 90 percent of all sales will come from this.

The CEO added that they will soon deal with the parts of the company that destroy value. He, of course, is speaking of sedans and hatchbacks. In fact, by 2022, they hope to uncover $25.5 billion in savings with the switch to SUVs and trucks. This is double the amount identified back in October ($14 million).

The Toyota Corolla iM, once offered in the United States under the name Scion iM, is a compact five door model that the Japanese automaker decided to give a new name for the next generation - the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. This model essentially is a North American version of the Euro-spec Auris that made an appearance at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

When being compared to the model it replaces, the car has been elongated by 1.5 inches, now being 172 inches long. The wheelbase, on the other hand, measures 103.9 inches long and and is now 70.5 inches wider (1.2 inches wider), it has also been lowered by an inch, now being 56.6 inches from top to bottom.

Similar to the Auris, and most of Toyota’s new models, the Corolla Hatchback will soon be be based on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, that comes along with a quieter cabin, thanks to the extra seals in the body panel gaps and the sound proof materials.

After Opel’s launch of the Insignia GSi last year in a liftback and a wagon body styles, Opel is ready to add the “GSi” badge on the Corsa. This will probably be the last variant for the current generation of the supermini, and the hot hatch version will have a three door body style to make it stand out from the lesser models of the range. Standard features that it will get include larger air vents, a honeycomb front grille, red brake calipers, a chrome exhaust tip, and a new set of 18 inch wheels.

The Opel Corsa GSi’s main highlight will be the Sport chassis that it borrowed from the hardcore OPC version that makes the hatchback feel more nimble around the corners. It had also been equipped with a beefier roof mounted spoiler that will boast the model’s visual appearance, while also generating extra downforce to keep the car close to the road when it is going fast.

At this moment, the automaker has not shared photos of the car’s interior cabin, but we do know that customers will be given the possibility to upgrade to Recaro seats if they are willing to spend a little more. There is also a leather wrapped sports steering wheel, as well as the leather wrapped sporty gearshift knob. An aluminum sport pedal set finishes off the upgrades in the Corsa OPC’s cabin.

The outgoing Kia Cee’d nameplate has had a pretty huge success since it was first revealed in 2012, with sales figures of around 640,000 units. However, the segment has become more challenging for the Korean automakers because of how its rivals have improved their offerings, including the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf, and the upcoming 2018 Ford Focus. And this is why Kia decided to raise the model’s game as it revealed their all new model ahead of its debut at Geneva next month.

Now, the automaker made a slight change to its name, now turning it into “Ceed”, by taking out the apostrophe. The reason for this is for it to appeal to the worldwide market. Ceed actually stands for “Community of Europe, with European Design”.

Similar to its predecessor, the 2018 Kia Ceed still has the automaker’s signature “Tiger Nose” grille tradition, flanked with ice cube daytime running lights that are pretty standard for them. This model gets more straight lines instead of creases and tapering lines like that of the previous model.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, aka the fourth generation A-Class, has arrived. And some of the few things it boasts would be the technology upgrade, three new engines, and a slight increase in size. Overall, the hatchback gets a handful of cool features that makes it stand out from other models, while receiving physical improvements that turn it into a more stylish hatchback.

Firstly, its wheelbase has grown by 1.2 inches (30 millimeters), while its track is half an inch (14mm) wider. Because size has been increased, there will be more space for passenger, and I mean more shoulder and head room. Plus an increase in cargo capacity where they can put larger suitcases in. Passengers will also benefit from a more comfortable ride, thanks to the revised suspension. There are also optional active dampers that can be adjusted depending on the driving mode you choose.

Its new exterior, especially up front, has been made to look more angular. It also looks more aggressive because of the new downward sloping nose and a pair of tilted headlights. Customers can then upgrade to a set of Multibeam LED headlights, with 18 individually actuated LEDs.

Immediately after the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, automakers are now shifting their focus to the next major event, and that is the 2018 Geneva Motor Show that will be taking place in March. One of the first companies that have teased us with what’s soon to come would be Land Rover, with their fancy new Range Rover SV Coupe. Now, it is Kia’s turn as they are ready to reveal the sporty GT Line specification for its Rio supermini.

To give you a refresher, some models that are members of the GT Line family include the Picanto, Sportage, Optima and Sorento, and this new Rio GT Line is simply a visual pack that will give the B-segment hatchback a sportier exterior appearance. Up front, there will be a set of four-point “ice cube” LED fog lights, as it sits on a set of 17 inch alloy wheels that you can only get in this version. Kia has also added a few glossy black accents all over the model, contrasted with a chrome window trim and twin exhaust tips.

As for the interior, there aren’t a lot of things to discuss because the Rio GT will have the same interior as the standard Rio models. In fact, the only interior upgrade it gets is that it is now covered in a black synthetic leather and cloth upholstery with grey stitching, metallic accents, and carbon fiber look for the dashboard. It also gets a new flat bottomed steering wheel that gets a “GT Line” badge.
