It’s been a long time coming but Volvo finally has a redesigned S60 small sedan in its fleet. The new model is one of the best looking and most advanced in the segment, and it’s built right here in the United States. We haven’t driven it yet but have sampled the car’s V60 wagon sibling.
Another car we sampled this week was the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, in both regular and sporty AMG C43 guises. The updated car may look and feel the same as the outgoing model but according to its maker around half the parts are new or updated.
The Chevrolet Blazer makes a return for 2019, though the latest version isn’t like any that’s come before. It’s now a small crossover SUV sitting between the compact Equinox and mid-size Traverse in Chevy’s SUV lineup.
Mazda fans have an updated MX-5 Miata to look forward to in the new model year. With a 17-percent increase in power, a higher redline, and better fuel economy, the MX-5 Miata is looking like a perfect toy for any enthusiast’s garage.
BMW finally treated us with the reveal of its reborn 8-Series, which arrives for the 2019 model year. It’s closely related to the 7-Series but is very much a sports car. It even forms the basis of BMW’s race car in the current season of the World Endurance Championship.
Another new car revealed this week was Audi’s second-generation A1 subcompact. It’s gone for a more serious look this time around, and the interior is a big step up on the outgoing model’s relatively drab design. Sadly, there are no plans for a U.S. launch.
If you’ve been waiting for a McLaren F1 to come up for sale, now’s your chance. This particular example was updated to the same specs as the legendary F1 LM, and only a few years ago it was sold at auction for the colossal sum of $13.75 million.
You’re looking at the first Bugatti Chiron in fully exposed carbon fiber. The car looks absolutely perfect in this configuration and we’re wondering why it’s taken so long for one to be commissioned in such a way.
