Sport compacts are making a comeback. Whether newcomers, like Hyundai's i30N, or long-standing favorites, like VW's Golf GTI, they all face stiff competition from the likes of the Ford Focus ST. The 4th generation hot hatch was launched in 2019.
New models just keep coming for the SUV segment. One of the latest is the Citroën C5 Aircross. To stand out from the crowd, Citroën put its own spin on convention. The C5 Aircross' main selling points are design and comfort.

After VW bailed out of a joint project in the 1970s, Porsche developed the 924 by itself. It was its first front-engine, rear-wheel-drive car. Dubbed the "People's Porsche", it became one of the biggest-selling sports cars in history.
The Opel Olympia was a technological trend-setter back in the 1930s. It made Opel the first German carmaker to build 100,000 models a year. Its exterior hides a modern chassis and engine.
Driving in tough conditions takes courage and a sense for safety. The Arvidsjauer region of Sweden has frozen lakes that provide perfect conditions for taking VW’s Arteon out for a test spin.
The Hilux is part of Toyota's 50-year history on the pickup market. More than 18 million of the world's most popular pickup truck have been sold. The 8th generation Hilux has been given a facelift.
A McLaren marked with an LT has been stripped down to its bare bones. The 600LT Spider is the lightest car in its class. The uncompromising development aim was reducing its weight by 90 kg.

Untamed wilderness, unforgettable good times and lots of challenges: that was the 2019 Land Rover Experience Tour. This year’s off-road tour started in Namibia and finished in the Kavango Zambezi Park, the world's largest cross-border nature reserve.
The 4th generation of the Mazda 3 stays true to the plain but stylish Kodo design language. It's coming to showrooms with a choice of a 2-liter gasoline engine or a 1.8-liter diesel. A mild hybrid system is standard for both.
The e-Tron, presented in late 2018, was Audi's first all-electric-powered vehicle. Now, Audi has rolled out a 2nd electric model: another SUV, but with coupé body contours. A 300-kW output gives the e-tron Sportback a range of up to 446 kilometers.
Essen's fairground halls welcomed auto tuning fans for the 2019 edition of the annual Essen Motor Show - the 52nd. More than 500 exhibitors and over 300,000 fair-goers took the opportunity to exchange ideas on the latest car customization trends.
