Hyundai and Rockstar give the Tucson crossover off-road chops

Despite crossover names plucked from the dusty, prickly expanses of the American Southwest, Hyundai isn't the brand to shop if you're looking for a tough, off-road-ready SUV. With a little help from Rockstar Performance Garage, though, it's transformed the cuddly Tucson – a car we last saw in very pavement-centric fuel cell spec – into a convincing all-terrain machine. The ruggedized Tucson will roll into the SEMA Show next month, and we'd be willing to bet it will travel by way of rough, angry Nevada desert. Read More

Subaru gets active and automated with new Viziv concept

Subaru has already trotted three Viziv (Vision for Innovation) designs out over the past two years – the original 2013 Viziv concept, the Viziv 2 and the Viziv GT video game race car. Now it's reusing that semi-portmanteau once again for the Viziv Future concept. All the Viziv concepts have been forward-looking, but none more so than the Future. The new concept car is infused with next-generation technologies and design solutions inside and out.

In pictures: SUVs, vans and other big boys of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show

The concept cars weren't the only stars of this year's Frankfurt Motor Show. Trucks, vans and utility vehicles of all shapes and sizes also helped make the show the major industry event it was. Plush, first-ever SUVs from the cunning British luxury minds at Bentley and Jaguar were contrasted by far more rugged products like the the Mercedes G500 4x4 Squared and dirtied Land Rovers. Similarly, world-class business luxury vans were offset by fun-loving camper and sport vans.

Lamborghini is officially developing an SUV

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.Read More

Qoros plugs in with the 2 SUV PHEV Concept

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

Aston Martin surprises Geneva with all-electric DBX super-CUV

It was no secret that Aston Martin would have a big presence at the Geneva Motor Show. We were itching to make our way to its booth ever since seeing the Vulcan track car. When we arrived, we found that Gaydon had a little something extra in store. It revealed an entirely different look with the surprise debut of the DBX, a concept car that explores the possibility of a luxury GT crossover. Read More
