NAIAS 2016: Audi
Audi debuted the updated 2017 A4 allroad quattro in Detroit. It is based on the A4 sedan but the wagon benefits from increased ride height and standard quattro all-wheel drive.
NAIAS 2016: BMW
The BMW M2 finally made its debut in Detroit. The rear-wheel coupe will be powered by a 3.0 turbocharged inline-6 good for 365 horsepower. It will come with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT. Starting price is $51,700 and it will be available this spring.
NAIAS 2016: Volkswagen
The diesel smoke is still clearing from the Volkswagen emissions scandal, and stock prices and sales are yet to fully recover. The apology tour was in full swing at NAIAS with everyone at VW committing to make things right and lead a more green future. To this goal VW showcased it’s plug-in hybrid Tiguan concept. The small ute is rugged looking and reminiscent of a Dakar race Tiguan. The far more vanilla second-gen Tiguan should arrive by the end of 2016, and they will need it to be a hit.
NAIAS 2016: Lincoln
Riding the Matthew McConaughey wave, Lincoln has greatly increased its profile in the automotive world. The MKC small crossover has been especially hot for the brand, but the Lincoln sedans come up short when compared with rivals. Perhaps the 2017 Lincoln Continental that has been unveiled at this year’s show will change that.
NAIAS 2016: Volvo
The Volvo S90 made its public debut in Detroit, replacing the S80 as their new flagship sedan. Just like the XC90, it is based on the Scalable Product Architecture platform and will utilize 4-cylinder engines. It is the first vehicle to offer a semi-autonomous Pilot Assist program as standard equipment, and it will work up to 80 mph. It will be available later this year.

NAIAS 2015: Cadillac
The 2016 CTS-V debuted in Detroit as the most powerful Cadillac in history, and it reaches 60 in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 200 mph thanks to 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque. Power is fed through an 8-speed auto from the 6.2L supercharged V8 LT4 straight out of the Corvette Z06. That is an 84 hp gain over the previous CTS-V, enough to top both the BMW M5 and Mercedes E63, and it should be cheaper too, although official pricing has not yet been announced.
NAIAS 2015: Jeep
The Renegade is a new subcompact crossover from Jeep that will be arriving at dealers in the next few months. Fiat Chrysler has a lot riding on the Renegade as it will be a global vehicle, and here in the States, it is expected to take a large chunk of the market that is currently filled with less off-road worthy options such as the Kia Soul and Nissan Juke.
