At AutoMobility LA, the automotive technology conference that encompasses the L.A. auto show press days, Nissan will hold two press conferences. The first will introduce Nissan's "newest entry into the CUV segment in the U.S.," according to the release. The second will debut vehicles inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Not much is known about the new crossover, but it will join Nissan's already CUV-rich lineup that includes the Juke, Rogue Sport, Rogue, Murano, and Pathfinder. Given that the range already covers the major crossover classes, it's not clear where the new model will fit in the lineup. But then again, we didn't think there was room between the Juke and the Rogue for the slightly smaller Rogue Sport. It's also possible that the new vehicle will replace an existing model. Of the five crossovers in Nissan's current lineup, the Juke is the oldest and overdue for a replacement.

Crossovers are incredibly important to Nissan's U.S. sales strategy. The Nissan truck division, which includes the brand's crossovers, has sold 619,669 units through October, compared to 575,574 Nissan cars sold during the same period this year. The Nissan Rogue has also been the automaker's single best-selling model for the past several months.

Stay tuned for more details on the new Nissan crossover as we get closer to the L.A. auto show press days beginning November 29.

2019 BMW X2 and i8 coupe to debut at 2018 Detroit Auto Show .
This is the world debut for the BMW X2.The X2 is based of the current BMW X1, meaning it rides on a front-wheel drive based platform. A turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four sends 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque to all-four wheels through an eight-speed automatic. It will hit 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds on the way to a top speed of 130 mph. It ditches the compromised roofline and awkward proportions of the X4 and X6, a plus considering how much it would cut into cargo and headroom.
