There is a little new in the range SUV from Hyundai. Direct competitor to models like the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V or the Nissan Qashqai, the Kona will be available in Canada towards the end of the winter.
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
It’s been years since Mitsubishi promises us his arrival in North America, and this time seems to be good. If this is the case, the Outlander PHEV could become the first SUV plug-in hybrid offered at “affordable” prices on the canadian market.
The Phantom is not a car of luxury for the 1%. It is an icon, definitely. And this icon has been totally renewed to 2018, for the first time since its resurrection in 2003. Bigger, more luxurious, more powerful, more techno… the Phantom is a gigantic living room on wheels. A lounge that can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and reach a speed of 250 km/h.
Lamborghini Aventador S
With a V12 engine developing 740 horsepower, the Lamborghini Aventador S is one of the cars of the most powerful and exclusive in the world. His presence at the Palais des congrès is a first for an auto show in canada.
Unveiled to the world there a few days ago at the auto Show in Detroit, the new Volkswagen Jetta 2019 has made Montreal his first appearance in a motor show in canada.
Like the Jetta, the Kia Forte 2019 has just been unveiled in Detroit. Kia has thought it a good idea to bring a copy to Montreal in order to present it to visitors at the Show. With this new generation, Kia hopes to carve out a place of choice in the compact car segment, currently dominated by the Honda Civic.
Toyota Kikai Concept
At Toyota, it was decided to spoil the visitors of the auto Show of Montreal with a concept rather than burst, the Kikai. Don’t expect to see it land at your dealer soon! Toyota has also unveiled the new Avalon 2019, as well as the Mirai, hydrogen fuel cell, which will be available for sale in Quebec this year.
In addition to a powerful V8 twin-turbo 4,4-litre, 600 horsepower, the new BMW M5, 2018 is distinguished by a wheel to the full, a first in the long history of the M5. To please the purists, BMW has taken care to add a configuration where the driver can switch to two wheel drive.
The Subaru Outback is no longer the largest model in the Subaru! Comes standard with the famous cog full of Subaru, the Ascent of 2019 will be available in configurations for seven or eight passengers. All versions will be equipped with the technology package and driver assistance EyeSight and a four-cylinder engine turbocharged 2.4-liter.
Best seller for Jeep in Canada, the Cherokee changes look to 2019. It also receives a new engine four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-litre, 270 horsepower.
A true legend on four wheels, the Jeep Wrangler is returned to us under a new generation in 2018 In addition to the V6 engine of 3.6 liters that he already knows, the Wrangler will now be available with a four-cylinder engine turbocharged. A variant in diesel will also make its arrival in 2019.
Just a few months after having launched the first SUV in its history, Jaguar does it again with the small E-Pace. The compact luxury SUV is in a first presence in an auto show in canada.
The unveiling of the second generation of the Nissan Leaf has made a lot of talk in the automotive world. With a starting price of 35 998$ and a range of 242 miles, the Leaf 2018 is another step towards the democratisation of the electric car.
To replace the Juke, Nissan will import now the Kicks on the north american market. Only available with a gear-train to two-wheel drive and a four-cylinder engine of 125 horsepower, the Kicks 2018 will arrive at dealers in Quebec at the beginning of the summer.
Cadillac Escala Concept
At Cadillac, we decided to show to visitors of the auto Show what the future holds for the prestigious american brand. The Escala is not a model that one wants to market, but rather an exercise of style that heralds the future of design by the manufacturer. The next generation of the CT6, maybe?
