    They seem to be nailing the timing of new product releases. Interesting to see how they do over the next couple years.

    I think the Kona looks good as does the Sonata.  Whoever is doing their styling is hitting the mark.  How many of these crossovers can they make though.  Venue, Kona, Tucson, Sante Fe, Palliade, and maybe I missed one of there could be more coming.

    Dude the Kona is tiny and on the edge of usefulness because of it...  I will be waiting to see how a CUV even smaller will work in the USA... I could see it working in Europe... but America?

    QFT.  The new Venue belongs in Europe or Asia, not here.

    It will probably be Nissan Kicks in size. 

    Kicks...........................Kona

    wheelbase 103.1...........102.4

    total interior volume  93.9..........94.1

    cargo room seat up  25.3................19.2

    cargo room seat down  32.3.............45.8 (how this is measured might be different between OEMs)

    Kicks and Kona are pretty darn close in size

    Hmm. The kona feels bigger, but numbers are numbers.

    People want crossovers and cars keep getting more expensive.  The Venue will sell in the USA just fine.

    Cars like the Venue are the new economy car hatchback.  But they sit a little higher so people can feel better about buying them.

    The new Accent hatchback, available elsewhere, is a good looking little car.  The Kona, is it supposed to correspond with the Elantra then?  I was thinking Kona = Accent, Tucson = Elantra, Sante Fe = Sonata.  The lower trimmed Kona interior is drab as hell.  The only Kona interior I like is the Limited/Ultimate in black leather with lime accents.  Will be interesting to see how the Venue is trimmed.

    This rendering seems to match up pretty well to the disguised spy photo.  

    I wonder if the Venue will be related to the existing ix25/Creta which is related to the Kia Soul.

      New XT models with 260-horsepower 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine Debut of Onyx Edition XT trim level with unique exterior and interior Tablet-style high-definition SUBARU STARLINK 11.6-inch touchscreen New Hands-Free Power Gate Available segment-exclusive DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System Standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology with Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control and new Lane Centering   The 2020 Outback delivers the optimal blend of SUV capability and car-like ride and handling with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Active Torque Vectoring, Vehicle Dynamics Control and X-MODE with Hill Descent Control. The 8.7 inches of ground clearance for all Outback models is greater than that in many SUVs, yet the Outback maintains a comfortably low step-in height for both front and rear passenger entry.

      For the first time since 2009, the Outback lineup offers a turbocharged engine. Standard on XT models, the 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine delivers robust all-around performance with 260 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 277 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. Meanwhile, the standard naturally aspirated 2.5-liter BOXER, with direct injection and nearly 90 percent of its parts new, delivers 182 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 176 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm.

      All 2020 Outback models are paired with a CVT featuring an 8-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters. The 2.4-liter turbo delivers a 3,500-lb. towing capacity, the most of any Outback in history, while the 2.5-liter provides more than a 600-mile range on a single tank. Manufacturer’s estimated fuel economy is 26/33 mpg city/highway for the 2.5-liter and 23/30 mpg city/highway for the turbo.   The 2020 Outback offers a peaceful cabin that is almost 3 dB quieter at highway speeds. Subaru engineers worked extensively to find ways to reduce unwanted noise coming into the cabin, fitting the Outback with new door weather strips that feature a baffle in the mid-section and dual lips on the roof side for improved quietness. Sound-insulated glass, which uses a sound-insulating inner film for the windshield and front-door glass, has been adopted, while glass thickness all around has been increased for quietness   SUBARU STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology offers an integrated cockpit experience by allowing the driver to control entertainment and vehicle settings through a large touchscreen display.   Pricing for the 2020 Outback will be announced closer to this fall’s on-sale date.

      The all-new Sonata embodies Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design language with a sophisticated four-door-coupe look
      Hyundai’s third-generation vehicle platform enables improvements in design, safety, efficiency and driving performance Hyundai First: Sonata’s Digital Key allows the vehicle to be unlocked, started and driven without a physical key, via a smartphone Hyundai First: Hidden Lighting Lamps turn chrome when off and lit when on Hyundai today introduced its all-new 2020 Sonata at the New York International Auto Show, marking the North American debut of Hyundai’s longest-standing and most successful model. The eighth-generation Sonata is unlike any of its predecessors, showcasing Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy, an all-new Smartstream G2.5 GDI engine and segment-first technology that can be personalized. Production of the 2020 Sonata starts in September at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama and retail sales begin in October.
      Customers can choose between two Smartstream gasoline powertrains: a 2.5 GDI and a 1.6 T-GDI engine, both mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The new Smartstream G2.5 GDI engine, with high-efficiency combustion, cooled EGR and an optimized ITMS cooling system, boasts a generous 191 horsepower at 6,100 rpm and 181 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm, plus an expected combined EPA estimated fuel economy of 33 mpg. Meanwhile, the new Smartstream G1.6 T-GDI has 180 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 195 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,500–4,500 rpm and is expected to achieve an EPA estimated 31 mpg combined, thanks to its world-first Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) system.
      Production of the 2020 Sonata starts in September 2019.
