2020 Kia Soul: Design, Specs, Options, Release

Kia used the 2018 Los Angeles Show to pull the wraps off the all-new Soul model. The redesigned compact hatchback starts the third generation as the 2020 Kia Soul. Kia still hides some specs like the mileage but revealed also some of the most important facts about the new Soul.

The new version ditches some trim options but will still offer the six levels of customization. The model again comes in EV version but remains with the front-wheel drive only. The better performance and handling will also arrive with the new-gen Soul but Kia improved also the passenger and cargo space. The model won’t also lack the modern tech and safety features and will also get attention with the distinctive and boxy style.

2020 Kia Soul

2020 Kia Soul: Design

The new 2020 Kia Soul made the transition to the third generation on the new strengthened platform and with the redefined dimensions. The new Soul has 165.2 inches from bumper to bumper which is 2.5 inches more than on the previous generation. With the longer body goes also the 1.2-inch longer wheelbase which opens more interior comfort and cargo space.

From the visual perspective, the new Soul remains similarly shaped and instantly recognizable. However, the new styling elements and several tricks make it more appealing to the eye. The model sports the new, slim headlights and upper grille while also comes with the redesigned front bumper area. The front bumper has a bit of the sports flair while the EV version has fewer openings in that area and also comes on the unique five-spoke wheels.

The roof also adds to the appearance with the floating style and the rear has also the new, tall taillights design.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the new Soul boosts the cargo space for addition 5 cubes which now measures 23.8 cubic feet with the all seats up. The model keeps other interior dimensions largely unchanged.

The redesigned hatch also has the nice dash design with the center screen sized up to 10.25 inches and with Apple Car Play and Android Auto features. Kia will also offer the features like the wireless charging, automatic climate, 640 Wats sound system with 10 speakers, etc. The model will also provide the full set of the active safety systems. Watching and preventing collisions will be automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane keep control, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors and blind spot monitoring.

The all-new Soul will arrive in six trim levels. Kia promised LX, S, X-Line, GT-Line, EX, and EX Designer Collection options including also the EV variant. Full specs of the trims will appear closer to the market launch.

2020 Kia Soul: Performance

On the performance front, the new 2020 Kia Soul promises better driving characteristics thanks to the new, more rigid platform and improved suspension system. The model now relies on the fully independent rear suspension.

The propulsion for the non-electric version will provide inline-4 and turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The base power unit is a 2.0-liter inline-4 with the power and torque ratings at 147 hp and 132 pound-feet. This engine Kia will offer either 6-speed manual transmission or CVT. The turbo version also returns with the new-gen Soul. A 1.6-liter turbo-4 unit boosts the performance to 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. The GT-Line version will combine this engine with the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. No all-wheel drive for the redesigned Soul as some reports claimed earlier.

The electric Soul version comes with the 64-kWh lithium-ion battery pack which provides also the power for the Hyundai Kona EV and Kia Niro EV. The battery feeds the electric motor mounted on the front axle. The system makes 201 hp and torque of 291 pound-feet.

Kia says that battery needs 75 minutes for the 80 percent recharge with the fast-charging unit. The range of 100 miles should take 30 minutes of recharging. Kia hasn’t, however, revealed the mileage of the new EV version. The same battery provides 239 miles in the Niro EV.

2020 Kia Soul: Arrival, Price

The new 2020 Kia Soul will have the market launch in the middle of the next year. Kia will likely keep the full specs and equipment list in the dark until the market debut. The price will also appear closer to the on-sale date. The current version starts from $14, 490.

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Updated, New tech and Price

The elegant and fun-to-drive Land Rover Discovery Sport must keep the pace with the new Volvo XC60 and BMW X3 and the refreshed version has been spotted testing ahead of the 2019 debut. The updated Disco will appear as the 2020 model with the debut in early 2019.

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport will come with the refreshed styling and notable upgrades should also boost the interior and equipment offer. The model will also go with the electrification and offer the plug-in hybrid version but probably from 2020 as Land Rover promised.

The Discovery Sport is a good seller for the brand and since the introduction in 2015 more than 300, 000 units were sold and about 120, 000 in 2017. The model exceeded the sales of the Evoque which is set for the full redesigned for the 2020 model year.

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.

Interior, Equipment:

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.

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Powertrains

As for the for the engine options the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport should get the revised and cleaner diesel units outside the US. The improvements in ride and performance should also hit the US version but no exact details yet.

The current US version exploits a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine available in two versions. The base version delivers 237 hp and torque of 251 pound-feet. A more powerful version provides 286 hp and 295 pound-feet of twisting. The 9-speed automatic and standard all-wheel drive are also part of the deal.

The plug-in hybrid version when arrives should integrate the 1.5-liter combustion engine. It should also be the case with the new Evoque. But the electrified Discovery Sport will likely hit the raids in 2020.

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Release, Price

The updated 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport will go on sale later in 2019. The debut should take place early in the year. The base price will likely move closer to $40, 000.

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.

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.

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.

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 will come essentially unchanged after the recent redesign and new color options will appear with the possibility of the new special edition version.

The styling of the model will also stay intact until the next mid-update. The fifth generation RAV4 has more aggressive appearance thanks to the more sculpted lines.

2020 Chevy Blazer: News, Design, Specs

After the redesign of the Equinox and Traverse SUVs, Chevy has recently introduced the all-new, mid-size Blazer model to split the difference between the two mentioned. The new five-seater version arrived as the 2019 model and it is reborn of the nameplate discontinued in 2005. However, Chevy switched to the more civilized unibody design instead of the truck-based roots in the past. The model has an angry new look and well-equipped interiors. The power comes from the non-turbo engines and three trims are available in the first model year.

The 2020 Chevy Blazer version will broad the equipment list with the new options and possibly additional trim level. Many would like the model to come with the new turbocharged engine option but Chevy might wait for the later model years to go with that move.

2020 Chevy Blazer

2020 Chevy Blazer: Design

The Chevy Blazer is the new design and styling in the brand’s range and with its angry look, the model won’t lack the attention. Chevy adopted the old nameplate to the new unibody design with the more comfort in mind while the body-on-frame structure of the previous version left in the history. However, the truck-based Trailblazer version is still available in the global markets.

The stylish, new Balzer model will continue to the next model year with the new color options and the new special treatment exterior package is also the possibility. The model has an aggressive, sculpted body design and the new front fascia among the bowtie brand’s SUVs.

The narrow headlights and aggressive grille design define the front-end style while the profile also gets attention with the sculpted fenders, swoopy character line and floating roof. The rear has also plenty of sports cues and nice taillights.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the Blazer is a toned-down design compared to the aggressive exterior style. The model has nice dash design and offers modern tech and convenient features. The cargo capacity limit is at 64.2 cubes with the non-functional rear seats.

The model will provide the latest infotainment system with the 8-inch screen interface and smartphone features in all versions. The part of the equipment list will also be a WiFi, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear row, premium upholstery and sound system, etc. The model won’t also lack advanced safety systems.

As the power upgrade, Chevy will offer a 3.0-liter V-6 engine. The V-6 version will provide 305 hp and torque of 269 pound-feet. In any case, the 9-speed automatic transmission will be in the pair and the model will also provide the sophisticated all-wheel drive with the twin-clutch rear differential.

As the possibility for the next Balzer, the reports suggest the introduction of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine but Chevy has promised that yet.

The 2020 Chevy Blazer will have the launch date in late 2019. The price range will again start around $30, 000.

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.

The next 2020 Buick Envision will continue to benefit from the mentioned upgrades and there won’t be major modifications before the next redesign probably for the 2022 version. The buyers should, however, expect new body color options and Buick might also make some of the advanced safety systems more accessible. The engine options and design will continue to the new model year in the same forms and the trim range should also stay in the same order.

2020 Buick Envision

2020 Buick Envision: Design

The 2020 Buick Envision will reprise the design theme of the current, refreshed version. The elegant, mid-size crossover gained the revised head and taillights for the recent refresh and the new grille version also adorns the front-end design. The waterfall design was discontinued in the favor of the sleeker chrome wing style.

The Envision has the sculpted rear-end design and profile lines and the sheet metal won’t change the structure and style before the next redesign. The new model year will, however, bring new color options and wheel design.

Interior, equipment:

The Envision changed just a few things inside the cabin for the recent refresh and the next version will stay in the same position as the current version regarding the cab style. The model will appear with the same control’s layout and material patterns. The trim range will likely stay as the current as well.

The Envision will deliver the new IntelliLink infotainment system with the 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone compatibility features in all grades.

2020 Toyota Highlander: Redesign, Changes, Arrival

Toyota’s reliable, mid-size, three-row Highlander crossover
SUV is faced now with many updated, redesigned or newly-introduced models. Ford
revealed recently the heavily-improved Explorer and the Highlander has also the
updated Honda Pilot and Buick Encore in the sight but also the newcomers such
as the Kia Telluride, Subaru Ascent and Hyundai Palisade. The all-new
Highlander arrived for 2014 and received the mid-update for the 2017 version.
Toyota has, however, been caught testing the new-generation 2020 Toyota
Highlander recently.

Details about the fifth-generation Highlander are still scarce but the three-row family hauler should grow in size and move on the new platform. The styling should also see the revisions in accordance to brand’s latest design language while model should also come with the heavily reworked interior and newest tech, comfort and safety features. The powertrain range should again include the gasoline and electrified versions.

2020 Toyota Highlander

2020 Toyota Highlander: Design, Platform

Toyota is prepping the new 2020 Toyota Highlander and like
many of its recent models, the version will be based on the stretched version
of the TNGA modular platform which forms also the base of the models like the
CH-R, Avalon, Camry, RAV4, etc. With the Toyota Global New architecture, the
Highlander should provide better performance and flexibility plus weigh less
while the prototype versions suggest also the enlarged dimensions.

Form the visual point of view, it seems that the test
version hides the styling similar to what we can see on recently all-new RAV4.
The styling cues we saw initially on the FT-AC concept model should be applied
to the new Highlander as well. That should mean hexagonal grille design
combined with swept-back headlights and dynamic front bumper style. 

The profile seems also to be coming with the trapezoidal
shaped fender flares and cleaner lines. The rear will also receive the new
taillights and resculpted tailgate and rear bumper.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, we should expect more passenger and cargo
space as the prototype version seem to have stretched wheelbase and length. The
current Highlander provides max cargo capacity of 84 cubes and just 14 cubic
feet with the all seats functional.

The new Highlander will also arrive with the new interior
design and upgraded materials and textures. The model should use similar dash
elements placement as the RAV4 with the center screen sitting atop the middle
of the dash and new air vents.

The new generation version will also adopt the latest Entune infotainment platform with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The safety will also be updated to the latest Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite with the sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, etc.

2020 Toyota Highlander

2020 Toyota Highlander: Powertrain

No details have leaked yet about the powertrain Toyota will
use in the new generation 2020 Toyota Highlander.   

The range should include the four-cylinder and V-6 gasoline
units like in the current version and the electrified option as well. The
possible candidates should be the units from the mid-size Camry sedan. A
2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with power around 200 hp and the V-6 unit with
the potential around 300 hp. Both engines should come in the combination with
the 8-speed automatic transmission. 

The hybrid could combine updated 3.5-liter V-6 engine with
the battery-powered electric motor for a slightly improved total output.
