LOS ANGELES , November 20, 2019 – Rugged, refined and right-sized, the all-new Seltos energizes the Entry SUV segment with a personality all its own. Complementing Kia’s robust SUV lineup, and following on the heels of the Telluride, the Seltos slots between the popular Soul and Sportage

2021 Kia Seltos

Lucky 13: Seltos becomes the 13th vehicle in the Kia lineup and it is as perky and dashing as the rest of the range. This little crossover slots between the Soul and Sportage. It has lots of interior space, decent power, all-wheel drive, and good looks. Even better are the X-Line concepts: the Urban concept with its glossy black roof, gold tinges, and 2-inch lift kit, and the Trail Attack that goes rugged. Both of them are hella-cool with their roof rack-mounted Hella auxiliary lights. Unfortunately, the concepts are not headed for production but the car is coming early next year. - Alisa Priddle

I'm chiming in on behalf of those who crave affordable, ordinary transport. This small SUV has some of the best second-row packaging for a vehicle of its size. Sure, it compromises some cargo room as a trade-off, but you can just flop down the seats for more groceries if need be. The interior fitments are familiar Kia, the powertrains seem snappy compared to the competition, and it looks sharp especially with those two-tone paint schemes. Plus, the X-Line variants already are reaching out to the aftermarket/overlanding crowd. My only issue is the name. Seltos: Is it a Marvel Comics galactic overlord, a breath mint, or a pill you take for night-time twitchy legs? - Mark Rechtin

New Honda Fit debuts in Tokyo with a hybrid option

  New Honda Fit debuts in Tokyo with a hybrid option It's unclear if the new Fit will eventually make its way to the US.Visually, the new Fit isn't quite the cutie-pie its predecessor was, but it's been intentionally designed for function over form. A new A pillar offers better forward and side visibility, and the dashboard is set lower than before, to give the driver a commanding view of the road ahead.

Hyundai Vision T Concept

Size-wise, the Hyundai Vision T clearly previews the next-generation Tucson, and as concepts go it's strong, but I wouldn't call it mind-blowing. Crisply creased sheetmetal aside, what I really dig are the details, particularly the "parametric" grille that incorporates all the lighting elements. As more vehicles move toward electrification, the need for grilles for cooling has decreased. This opens up considerable design possibilities which Hyundai head of design SangYup Lee and team have exploited. Kudos to them for a thoughtful and scintillating execution. - Ed Loh

When I was a little car nerd, the coolest, most luxurious cars hid their headlamps when not in use—usually by closing a door over them so they blended in with the grille, or by folding them down beneath flush-fitting body-colored panels. Wiki tells me the C5 Corvette and Lotus Elan ended this fad in 2004, but now Hyundai has patented a new design that obscures its five LED lighting elements per side behind a light-permeable metal-tone film, so that when they're off they totally blend in with the grille. This tech may not be ready in time for the next Tucson, but I sincerely hope the rest of its design borrows heavily from the muscular, sporty Vision T. - Frank Markus

Mitsubishi's little Super Height K-Wagon concept debuts in Tokyo, makes a big impression

  Mitsubishi's little Super Height K-Wagon concept debuts in Tokyo, makes a big impression This taller-than-average little van concept is already running rings around our hearts.The Mitsubishi Super Height K-Wagon concept, which debuted on Tuesday at the Tokyo Motor Show, is a look forward to how people might want to use Japan's legendary little kei-class vehicles. Unlike many other kei cars, the Super Height is, well, super-tall and benefits from slightly better-than-average ground clearance. That allows the Super Height to go further than most kei cars could dream.

2021 Toyota Mirai Concept

I'm picking the Toyota Mirai for best car at the L.A. Auto Show for three reasons. First, it's a car, not a crossover/SUV. You heard me. Two, I like that Toyota is sticking with hydrogen fuel cell technology. Say what, you might say? Well, electric cars are the future, true. However, for a wide variety of reasons, many people do not and will not have access to level 2 home charging. Apartment dwellers leap to mind, though I've lived in a few different houses that simply didn't have parking spots. Also, think about Uber/Lyft drivers or delivery drivers who can't afford to wait around for an hour while their rides charge up. Hydrogen promises to make refueling as quick and convenient as filling a car up with gasoline. Yes, we need more hydrogen infrastructure. That's a chicken/egg problem, not a Toyota one. To reiterate—electric cars are the future, but Battery Electric Vehicles are not the be-all-end-all solution. Variety is needed, and the Mirai represents exactly that.

The third (and real) reason the 2021 Mirai is my pick is because it's great-looking. Yeah, the wheels are a bit undersized and the "FUEL CELL" badge behind the front wheel looks cheeseball. That said, what a stunner! Especially when you take into account just how horrifically awful the previous Mirai looked. That thing—a car that I'll happily, proudly, and forever take credit for blocking from being a Car of the Year finalist because it was so ugly. True story. The second-gen Mirai shows the importance and power of design. As cool as I think hydrogen fuel cell technology is, I'd rather take the bus than ride around in something as ugly as the last one. This new one? Not only would I love to drive it, but now I'd consider owning the new Mirai. Hey man, I love great-looking cars. - Jonny Lieberman

Volkswagen to unveil a new EV concept Nov. 19 in Los Angeles

  Volkswagen to unveil a new EV concept Nov. 19 in Los Angeles It coincides with the L.A. Auto Show and kicks off a VW exhibit at the Petersen MuseumVW offers no details on the concept, which debuts at a private event Nov. 19 during the press days for the L.A. Auto Show, except to say that it will be one of four ID. concept vehicles highlighted in the Petersen exhibit. Volkswagen is teasing the “Building an Electric Future” exhibit with a rendering of the ID.Vizzion, the futuristic Level 5 autonomous electric concept it unveiled last year that features no steering wheel and no pedals and is supposed to arrive between 2020 and 2022.

2020 Land Rover Defender

The pictures don't do the new Defender justice. I applaud the Land Rover design team for taking an extra step and modernizing the Defender in every way possible, but still keep the iconic design shape and proportions of the off-roader. Whether you look at its horizontal lines on the profile or its modern front end, the Defender is a looker, and because of the many ways you can customize it we should see a ton of new Defenders on the streets across the country. - Miguel Cortina

2021 Ford Mustang Mach E*

It's tough to ignore the controversy surrounding the Mustang Mach E's name, but let's try anyways. Nowhere in the automotive market has the gap between the upper and middle class been so obvious than in electrified vehicles. The rich get beautiful, sporty Teslas, Audis, Porsches, and Jaguars, while the less-rich get humdrum appliance cars like the Nissan Leaf or Hyundai Ioniq. The Mustang Mach E is the first EV from a mainstream automaker to truly be lust-worthy. Sporty, high-performance, and great-looking. Visually, the Mustang design language looks great on this "SUV" (it has as much ground clearance as a Toyota Camry; this is a station wagon, folks), with Ford designers smartly enhancing the Mach E's lines with a black roof, and lower rocker panels. I, frankly, can't wait to see if the Mach E's powertrain can cash the checks its sheetmetal is writing. - Christian Seabaugh

Finally, a legacy brand gets it. Most people don't want a minimum-effort compliance car. They don't want an EV that plays it safe. Tesla has understood this from day one and years later only two other brands get it—Porsche and Ford. EVs need to be desirable completely independent of their powertrains, but at the same time their powertrains must be competitive. Everyone else has only figured out half the equation at best. Not Ford. The Mustang Mach-E is as bold and sexy as it is capable. It hits the Tesla formula perfectly: desirable design, serious performance, and 300 miles of range. Not even Porsche has that completely nailed yet, and forget about anyone else making an EV, especially at consumer-friendly prices. Lashing it to the Mustang brand only gives it a bigger platform to reach buyers who'd never considered an EV before. It's controversial as hell, and that's exactly why it works. Ford is taking a big risk here, but if it pays off, it'll be because they played it perfectly. - Scott Evans

2020 Audi RS 6 Avant

Diehard Audi fans have been begging the four-ring brand to bring a high-performance wagon to the U.S. for years, but they're not the only ones. The folks at Audi of America have also been angling to get an RS Avant model on our shores. At long last, everyone's prayers have been answered. The 2020 Audi RS 6 Avant will be the first RS Avant model ever sold in the 'States, and the hot all-wheel-drive wagon quietly makes its North American debut at the L.A. Auto Show. With a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 churning out 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, the RS 6 is estimated to hit 60 mph in less than 3.6 seconds. Even parked on the stage at Audi's booth, the D-pillared RS variant looks fast with its air suspension slammed down on the optional 22-inch alloy wheels. Christmas has come early for wagon lovers. - Alex Nishimoto

2020 BMW M2 CS

a blue car parked in front of a building © Motor Trend Staff

The BMW M2 CS, in my mind, is almost perfect. It's the right size, has a very healthy 444 hp from the M3's S55 twin-turbo straight-six, and carries with it the exclusivity of just 3,000 planned units. But, putting all of that to one side for a second, just look at the thing. There's a sense of purpose to the way the M2 CS looks that, to me, is missing from the rest of the BMW M car lineup. It's aggressive and has a sort of punchy, brash attitude to it that should define the way M does its cars from here on out. I need one in my garage. Badly. - Nick Yekikian

2020 Genesis G90

This is the Genesis moment I've been waiting for. Building a brand ain't easy, especially when forging an expressive and recognizable visual identity. Genesis' efforts so far drive well, but lack in the design department. I'm not saying they look bad, they just don't look like much.

The 2020 G90 though? It looks like much. Elegant sculpting, unique lighting, and that massive, polarizing grille make a memorable statement. Those thousand-spoke wheels are a perfect match. The new styling gives much-needed distinction to Genesis' flagship, and indicates a design language rising within the brand. Finally, it seems, Genesis is hitting its stride. - Alex Leanse

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia

a blue car parked in front of a building © Motor Trend Staff

Tucked away in a corner and largely overshadowed by high-riding electric Mustangs, a slew of Blade Runner-esque concept cars, and enough VR experiences to make your stomach turn, a little green Alfa Romeo stole my heart. No, not the Kermit-green Giulia Quadrifoglio, a standard 2020 Giulia fresh off its midcycle refresh wearing a gorgeous shade of paint Alfa calls Verde Visconti Metallic. It's a new color for Giulia (previously exclusive to the Stelvio SUV) that comes with the refresh, alongside interior upgrades, active safety tech, and touchscreen infotainment. The car had a tan leather upholstery with open-pore wood details. Paired with that stunning paint, I can't think of a more handsome sport sedan on the market.

2020 Nissan Sentra

Finally! A Sentra that looks good and has some personality. The fact that it also gets so many improvements under the skin bodes well for it. If it's priced well and drives as good as it looks, it could be one of the most enticing propositions in its segment, and will hopefully breathe new life into the Sentra nameplate. - Stefan Ogbac
