Back at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, Lamborghini gave the world a look at what a modern Raging Bull-badged sport utility vehicle might look like. Not a bad-ass, ultra-rugged Rambo Lambo redux, but a car-like crossover for the new, eco-conscious millennium. They called it Urus. In the three years since, there's been plenty of "will they, won't they" in the auto media, and each passing month has seemingly increased the chances that they would not. Well, Lamborghini has now put any doubt to bed, announcing this week that it is moving ahead with production of a luxury SUV.

Qoros plugs in with the 2 SUV PHEV Concept

By - April 24, 2015 10 Pictures
Just a month and a half ago, Qoros was a Chinese-Israeli automaker showing off vanilla, nondescript designs like the Qoros 3 City SUV (those missing doors are there to help highlight the interior, not for visual effect). We knew that change was in the air, and after the Shanghai auto show, Qoros is now the warped mind behind one of the meanest, strangest small crossover designs in recent memory. The Qoros 2 SUV PHEV Concept may be friendly to the environment, but it's downright nasty to anyone that looks over in its direction. Read More

By - February 13, 2015 25 Pictures
Usually one of the last car brands you'd think of when you think "off road," Kia is looking to pull urbanites out of city limits and into the great outdoors. The all-new Soul-based Trail'ster concept it's showing at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show is the vision of a small crossover that's as comfortable roaming wide-open public lands as it is maneuvering cramped city streets.

Nissan reworks the Juke and toughens up the X-Trail for 2015

By - May 27, 2014 21 Pictures
Nissan’s stylistically contentious Juke is one of those "hate it or love it" vehicles. With its odd headlight treatments and strange design elements, the Juke is definitely for a specific taste. Now Nissan has unveiled both the redesigned Juke for 2015 and the all new, more straight forward X-trail. While the new Juke benefits from a series of design enhancements, new engine offerings and some technological revisions, the new X-Trail gets a complete ground up redesign. Read More
