Kia Soul

Kia doesn't have much of a design tradition in the U.S., so the South Korean company's American designers took the liberty of giving the Soul — a small crossover vehicle — a unique, eye-catching shape.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe

The Genesis is built on rear-wheel drive, is suspension-tuned for racing, and has a 300-horsepower, V-6 engine. The coupe also boasts Brembo brakes, which are usually found in cars that cost more than $25,500, plus luxury touches like a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Ford Taurus SHO

The SHO's EcoBoost engine — with direct injection and turbo-charging — delivers the power of a V-8, 365-horsepower vehicle with V-6 fuel efficiency. The SHO also comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox, featuring steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and all-wheel drive.

Cadillac CTS Wagon

Now Cadillac is going to see if the vehicle will appeal to the post-SUV American buyer as well. The CTS wagon is built on the proven CTS chassis and is powered by a V-6 engine with a six-speed gearbox that's expected to get 26 m.p.g. on the highway.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep's engineers have shortened the vehicle, given it a more aerodynamic shape and equipped it with a more luxurious interior, featuring more expensive materials and higher-grade controls.

Toyota Venza

The new Venza, which is based on the same architecture chassis as that of the always popular Toyota Camry, has the audacity to look like a traditional station wagon.

Nissan 370Z

The new 370Z has a 3.7-liter, double-overhead-cam, multivalve engine that delivers 332 horsepower but gets 26 m.p.g. on the highway. The 370Z also comes with a carbon-fiber drive shaft, seven-speed automatic transmission and speed-sensitive power steering.

Suzuki Kizashi

The Kizashi's key asset could be its power train, which includes a new 4-cylinder aluminum engine that can be matched up to either a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission. Kizashi won't go on sale until late fall, and the price is expected to be in the low-$20,000 range.

Volkswagen Golf

the Rabbit will disappear in 2010 as VW introduces the sixth-generation Golf — and reintroduces the Golf name to the U.S., starting in October. The new Golf's power train has been updated for the U.S. market with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine; a 2-liter diesel engine will be offered as an option.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The spirit of Teutonic austerity that animates Mercedes-Benz design remains, but the lines of the new E-Class look sleeker and more contemporary.
