2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SEL 1.5T S-AWC
Considering the numerous cars Mitsubishi has presented to the world over the years, they have hit a homerun with their 2019 Eclipse Cross SEL 1.5T S-AWC compact-crossover; upon first look, this carmaker demonstrates a more risk-taking approach resulting in a stunning exterior. (The Mitsubishi “Red Diamond” exterior paint comes highly recommended.) Accompanying the eye candy, this model comes with a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo engine, “super” all-wheel control for easy maneuvering, and a sound interior laced with real leather and an always applaudable heads-up display to help with keeping eyes on the road. Coming with an infotainment touchpad, a generous number of standard features, plus the optional Touring Package featuring a 710-watt Rockford Fosgate sound system, roof rail, and dual-pane power panoramic sunroof, Mitsubishi is surely geared for a remarkable year.

2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR
What, an SUV? Yes! Stunningly designed, the Jaguar F-Pace SVR­—Special Vehicle Racing—is also one of the most exhilarating behind the wheel. It’s 550 horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter, V-8 heart; all-wheel drive; 10-inch touchscreen; optional 22-inch wheels; and 825-watt Meridian Surround Sound System take things to the next level. The Ultra Blue exterior makes it even more electric.
L.K. Byron adds...
Exterior:

First off, the F-Pace SVR’s exterior styling borders on flawless. The headlights, taillights, grill, and side panel designs deliver an eye-catching sporty feel. The adaptive LED Headlights with auto high beam assist ensure that the road ahead is clear and well luminated for safe nighttime driving. The panoramic sunroof includes a sliding front section to accommodate the driver and passenger while the rear seat passengers can simply enjoy the view. This model’s electric “Ultra Blue,” color and SVR body kit additions will make head turns a regularity when you’re out and about, so don’t be alarmed.

Interior:
The interior is well designed and adequate for everyday needs. Noteworthy inclusions are an interactive driver display, heated and cooled power front performance seats, nifty heated split fold rear seats, ambient interior lighting, 10” touchscreen Touch Pro System w/ navigation, and rear-view camera with a 360- degree parking aid. Another plus is the powerful and crisp 825 watt Meridian Surround Sound System which makes sure your favorite tunes are fully appreciated when played in time of need. The fit and finish is on point along with a smooth to the touch, quilted leather seats. Leg room and comfortability are attributes to the interior as well.

Performance:
The F-Pace is top notch. Surface roads and highways are the perfect canvas for the 550 horsepower 8- cylinder engine to display its talents. Acceleration leaves not much to be desired along with road feel, and handling. Although the tank is a bit thirsty, the overall performance and driving experience manages to make that slight gripe an afterthought.

2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD
Andrea Janise says: 


This CX-9 takes Mazda to the next level in terms of pleasing the most passengers since the automaker’s existence, boasting three rows to seat up to seven adults comfortably. And don’t worry, the sleek looks deceptively hide its capacity complemented with a smooth ride. The top-of-the-line Signature flaunts a long list of features including Auburn Nappa leather seating; LED signature grille accent lighting; and 20-inch alloy wheels to name a few. For more options, the CX-9 also comes in Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims as well. Talking for especially mothers, this is an amazing family car that still keeps your cool points intact with all the great looks the CX-9 possesses.

2019 Toyota Camry SE
A bestseller for more than a decade and for good reason: It’s continues to be reliable, mechanically sound, and consistently comes with awesome resale value. For an added edge, its aggressive, sporty design is heavily applauded as one of the most attractive sedans on the market. The 2.5-liter, 4-cyliner engine packs 203 horsepower, while still a never-thirsty combined 32 miles per gallon; “Audio Package” with ENTUNE 3.0 Audio Plus with App Suite; stellar safety ratings; and a price tag under $30K keep the legendary status of the Camry alive. Look for the other trims including a Hybrid SE in mind as well. You won’t lose no matter the style you choose under the Camry umbrella.

For 2020, here are some models confirming the new year is going to be very promising! Check these out! 


2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SE


Luxurious and rugged, two descriptions that rarely together when describing an automobile, but the Land Rover Range Rover line continues to master the combination. The Range Rover Evoque provides this signature driving experience in a smaller frame compared to its other siblings, but comes with a redesigned exterior, a slightly larger cabin boosting rear legroom, and 2.0 turbocharged four-cylinder engine packing 246 horses steered by all-wheel drive. While the standard model is generous, the optional packages such as the Demo Specification Pack (fixed panoramic roof, keyless entry, 360° surround camera); Drive Pack (adaptive cruise control, high-speed emergency braking); and Interior Luxury Pack boasting 21-inch wheels, theater-esque Meridian Surround Sound System, and a leather upgrade throughout the interior. The All-Terrain Response Control will ensure passengers are pampered while taking on virtually any road condition. It’s the Land Rover way.

2020 KIA Soul X-Line
KIA has rewarded the legion of fans and soon-to-be loyalists with the third generation of one of their most popular lines, the Soul. Revered for how inexpensive, yet practical, multi-dimensional, and unconventional signature box-shaped exterior they made a trend, the X-Line edition has stepped it up even more. Let’s welcome in the 18-inch alloy wheels; added safety features (rear-cross traffic collision warning, blind spot warning, and lane-change assist); roof rails; user-friendly interface connecting both smartphone applications; impressive cargo space; and body cladding for a more rugged look, while protecting the exterior. With a combined 30 miles per gallon, industry-leading warranty package, and starting price of $21,620, we definitely have something to look forward to in 2020.

With the newest luxury SUVs, stocked sports vehicles, and sleek sedans doing their best to be eye candy, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator has turned the same amount of heads—if not more. While the 2020 Gladiator Overland 4x4 maintains the boxy, rugged Wrangler frame, it’s the exclusive convertible capability, and what brings it to the next level—a 5-foot cargo bed stocked with a 115-volt AC outlet. The Premium Audio Group (8.4-inch display, Alpine audio system, GPS); Trailer Tow Package (boasting a class-leading 7,650-pound towing capability); and Jeep Active Safety Group (rear park-assist, blind-spot detection, forward collision warning) packages are strongly suggested to complete the Jeep experience.
