    We're just a day away from the Detroit Auto Show starting and the leaks have been pouring out. Four automakers: Honda, Infiniti, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen have had their showings prematurely revealed within the past week.

    We'll start with Honda and their Urban SUV Concept. The concept is based on the Fit and has a sporty and dynamic SUV profile.

    Next is the Infinti Q50 (Yes, the successor to the G Sedan) which was leaked by Infiniti Canada on their site before being taken down. Luckily someone saved an image of the site and shared it. The Q50 has a similar design to the current M (or should I say Q70) with a large front grille, upswept headlights, and a hood featuring flowing ridges and peaks.

    Mercedes-Benz has plans to reveal the new CLA at Detroit. That didn't stopped someone from leaking a shot of the production CLA earlier this week. The picture shows the production model is much like the concept shown last year.

    Finally there is Volkswagen who will be showing a concept seven-seat crossover alongside the Passat Performance concept. The leaked picture shows the crossover having a mix of Volkswagen Toureg and Audi Q7 in the design.

    We'll have information and pictures when these vehicles are officially shown at Detroit (or Geneva in the CLA's case) this week.
