Acura Type S Concept
The people at Acura also know a thing or two about producing a formidable performance car, like the iconic NSX. One of the performance-oriented things Acura has done in the past was to make a Type S variant for some of their models, a trim option that featured more power, better handling and stunning style.
In August 2019, Acura revealed a Type S Concept variant, a return to Acura’s performance-minded past. The new Type S Concept is sports a custom Double Apex Blue Pearl paint job, along with four-lamp Jewel Eye® LED headlights, 21-inch wheels and a carbon spoiler While not in production yet, keep an eye on this amazing model to hit production lines in the near future.
Honda Civic Type R
While it’s not technically new, the Civic Type R’s introduction to the U.S in 2017 created quite a stir, especially among car enthusiasts. For years, the Type R was available only overseas, leaving American drivers void of Honda’s top-level Civic.
The Honda Civic Type R is anything but your average Civic. With its hatchback design, aggressive exterior styling, massive spoiler and 306-horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission, the Civic Type R a worthy addition to this list. Expect the new 2020 model soon!
Volkswagen I.D. Buzz Concept
With plans to eventually go completely electric, VW’s I.D. BUZZ is an exciting look at the German auto giant’s future plans and just one of several concept I.D. vehicles that it is planning to produce. With design inspiration from the classic VW Microbus, the I.D. BUZZ is expected to hit showrooms in 2022. It will feature a fully-electric powertrain, a powerful 369-horsepower electric motor, reconfigurable seating options and controls that look like something only seen in sci-fin movies.
2020 Ford Bronco
Off-road enthusiasts, take note: the Bronco is coming back. Set to return in 2020, the legendary Ford Bronco was a Jeep competitor that handled trails with ease. However, the Bronco was been missing from Ford’s lineup since 1996, being replaced by the Ford Expedition. The Bronco made a name for itself, due to its ability to handle just about anything, thanks to its truck-based frame, four-wheel drive and muscular V8 engine.
Ford officially announced the return of its legendary off-roader this year, and the new Bronco is scheduled to be released in 2020. Keep an eye on Ford’s website for news, specs and prices!
