2019 Lexus UX SUV: All New

main-image1

Lexus enters the race for the top subcompact SUV with the brand new 2019 Lexus UX. Easily a compacted RX model, the 2019 UX doesn’t cut any corners while cutting down on size.

Despite being built on the same chassis as its distant cousin, the Toyota C-HR, the all-new Lexus UX comes out looking nothing alike. Short and stout compared to the Lexus RX, the UX debuts as a little more attractive in proportion and design.

Taking on forms reminiscent of wind smoothed and cut stone, the front of the UX is a subtle collection of soft and hard angles. 

The grille is a smattering of scales radiating from the easily recognizable Lexus badge. The complicated headlights are tone-downed versions of Lexus’s latest sporty fanfare; filled with sharp interior angles, lines, and a single pupil-like LED backed glass bulb. The grille is adorned with some subtle chrome adornment at its bottom and lined with some scowling vents.

Moving past the sneering face of the 2019 UX, the profile demonstrates the near perfect link between Lexus sedans and SUVs. Coming out shorter, while keeping a similar wheelbase, the UX comes out closer to the sportier sedans than its SUV sized brethren.

Sides mirrors are the pointed variants seen on the Lexus RC and it also barrows the shoulder line from the same sedan. What is different though is that the shoulder lines turns in the rear taillight, which bears a depth that separates it from the tailgate and rear fascia.

The 2019 Lexus UX also shares newer utility conventions with the addition of a plastic skirt that lines the base. The taillight itself forms a long bar that cuts across the tailgate and protrudes giving its additional three-dimensional form.

Overall the all-new Lexus UX is the perfect addition to the Lexus lineup and an absolute winner in the luxury subcompact SUV class.

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Performance and Design

main-image1

Sinewy and toned like a professional athlete, the 2018 Aston Martin Vantage takes leaps and strides to the forefront of performance and design. 

astonmartin_18vantagecp5a_angularfront

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Angular Front View

Less aggressive than the Aton Martin DB11, the Vantage aims for simplicity, cleaning up curves and edges in exchange for softer rounded corners. 

astonmartin_18vantagecp5a_frontview

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Front View

The front adopts a singular grille with a crosshatched grate and lacks any flamboyant chrome seen on luxury vehicles. The Hood is graced with only a slight hump in the center and two prominent ridges-turned-shoulder lines just above the wheel wells. The headlights are elongated ellipses containing Aston Martin’s uniquely shaped honeycomb-like lights. 

astonmartin_18vantagecp5a_angularrear

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Angular Rear View

The profile of the 2018 Vantage takes on a similar story, toned down and restrained. Between the front and rear wheel wells the Vantage takes on a nicely formed taper giving it the form factor of a skinny waist. 

astonmartin_18vantagecp5a_dashboard

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Interior View

The only intrusion to its otherwise pristine form is the inclusion of a behind the wheel air vent that yields to an additional bodyline. Moving to the rear the Aston Martin design comes full circle. 

astonmartin_18vantagecp5a_frontseat

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Front Seats

The roof quickly tapers ending in a short spoiler rise. The taillights are a thin streak that don’t try to over shadow or muss up the cleanliness. The only questionable addition is the superfluous skirt that transforms into surrounding the exhaust pipes.

astonmartin_18vantagecp5a_rearseat

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Rear Seats

However, whether it fits or not is purely subjective, but still lends itself to athletic utility. Be it your dream track car or your showy daily driver, the 2018 Aston Martin Vantage will handle anything you throw at it, while remaining imperceptibly trim and gorgeous.

main-image1

Never have the roads seen a more stylish and calculated hatchback than the 2019 Audi A7 Quattro. 

audi_19a7quattrohb2a_angularfront

2019 Audi A7 Quattro: Angular Front View

Although not a renewed design, the 2019 A7 sees some small adjustments despite its already handsome appearance. Surprisingly long for a coupe, the Audi A7 sports a rare 4-doors instead of the conventional two, but manages plenty of space for passengers and cargo alike. 

audi_19a7quattrohb2a_frontview

2019 Audi A7 Quattro: Front View

Starting at the front you’ll find a massive hood adorned with strong ridgelines hiding the nicely sized and equally well powered V6 engine. Just in front is the modern hexagonal grille with the Audi rings front and center. 

audi_19a7quattrohb2a_angularrear

2019 Audi A7 Quattro: Angular Rear View

Less visible are the dual front sensors hidden among the black grille lines as well as the air ducts spaced in front of the wheels on the lower fascia. The edges of the headlights fit perfectly against the corners of the grille speaking to Audi’s clean and mathematical ideology. 

audi_19a7quattrohb2a_dashboard

2019 Audi A7 Quattro: Interior View

As a set of strongly striated lines, the headlights make a bold statement, especially while the DRLs are on.  Moving to the profile, the coupe-like form of the Audi A7 comes into full view. With a smoothly tapering roof, the rear takes on a beautifully windswept form. 

audi_19a7quattrohb2a_frontseat

2019 Audi A7 Quattro: Front Seats

The rear picks up a nicely uncomplicated form softly mimicking the lower fascia of the front and leaving the rest of the fluid rear untouched. Taillights take on the form of a single red bar that spans the entirety of the back also taking on the striations of the front. 

audi_19a7quattrohb2a_rearseat

2019 Audi A7 Quattro: Rear Seats

At level, the hatchback rear window appears small but is deceivingly large as it attempts to cover up the nicely sized trunk space.

The 2019 Audi A7 Quattro impresses on all fronts. Its design and execution are no question as it personifies Audi’s arithmetical aesthetic and expertise in performance engineering.

2019 Cadillac CTS: Angular Front View 

This, however, isn’t your grandparent’s Cadillac. Sporting form and function similar to some of the most posh luxury vehicles, the 2019 Cadillac CTS makes a bold statement on the road. Every curve comes to a straight edge far removed from the classic Cadillacs of the 50’s and more reminiscent of the 90’s.

cadillac_19ctsluxurysd3af_frontview

2019 Cadillac CTS: Front View 

The front is adorned with the classic Cadillac crest and dons a chrome grille of similar shape. The hood is raised in the center, which is a classic feature of the older designs. The headlights appear cut in half by the front fascia, separating the main headlights from the fogs. 

cadillac_19ctsluxurysd3af_angularrear

2019 Cadillac CTS: Angular Rear View 

The main headlights come to squared edges. A shoulder line forms at the headlight and rides the side of the body all the way to the rear. The profile of the 2019 Cadillac CTS maintains a modern clean look. 

cadillac_19ctsluxurysd3af_dashboard

Following the shoulder to the rear the 2019 CTS copies the front’s sharp appearance. The center of the back comes to a lateral line separating it perfectly.

cadillac_19ctsluxurysd3af_frontseat

The taillights are simple and vertically rectangular. The chromed exhaust ports take on a similar shape helping to solidify the sharp aesthetic. The 2019 Cadillac CTS is the quintessential American luxury car.

No tougher vehicle has left the Toyota manufacturing plants than the latest 2019 Tacoma TRD PRO.

toyota_19tacomatrdprotc3fa_angularfront

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO: Angular Front View

With fully integrated off-roading features, the Tacoma TRD PRO is one of the few vehicles that’ll handle any terrain you throw at it. A robust matt black grille and polymer lower bumper ensure that you don’t have to worry about any chipped chrome or paint. 

toyota_19tacomatrdprotc3fa_frontview

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO: Front View

A lower grille spans just above the bumper ending in two powerful LED fog lights on either side. Just below the bumper is a TRD branded skid plate, rated for jacking just in case you find yourself unable to access normal jacking points. 

Optional is a fully integrated air-intake snorkel for the truly adventurous, removing the need for user customization and wonky aftermarket fitting. 

The profile reveals gaping wheel wells, hinting at its ability to handle overly rocky trails.

toyota_19tacomatrdprotc3fa_angularrear

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO: Angular Rear View

Coming around to the rear you’ll discover a lengthy truck bed with several options for bed lining. The bumper has a healthy width, making it a safe and easy step up into the bed. 

The tailgate is fairly standard but is regaled with the proper TRD PRO and 4×4 insignia. 

toyota_19tacomatrdprotc3fa_dashboard

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO: Interior View

The rear window is tall and wide, making rear viewing from the front overly easy. From head to tail the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is all-utility with a refined brutal toughness. 

toyota_19tacomatrdprotc3fa_frontseat

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO: Front Seats

Less overall curvy than other sport trucks, Toyota has moved back to more rectilinear design dynamics fitting into a class full of machismo. Being bigger and badder than ever before, Toyota’s 2019 Tacoma TRD PRO is as close as you can get to a professional’s off-roader.

2018 Buick Enclave Avenir: Angular Front View

With an interior loaded with leather, chrome accents, and standard technology, the 2018 Enclave is suited for anyone and their whole family. However, the exterior would never you clue you in on the Enclave’s family oriented nature and spurs for the fully luxurious experience. 

buick_18enclaveavenirsu2a_frontview

2018 Buick Enclave Avenir: Front View

The 2018 Enclave Avenir trim features a modern wave pattern mesh grille with the signature emblem and chrome wings that grace the front of the latest generation of Buicks. The hood features wind swept aerodynamic ridges and curves, putting the sport in its SUV designation.

buick_18enclaveavenirsu2a_angularrear

2018 Buick Enclave Avenir: Angular Rear View

The same hood lines sweep the length of the body forming two shoulder ridges that accentuate the rear wheelbase. Coming to the profile you’ll notice the notable, though subtle, floating roof. Modern in aesthetic and form, the floating roof emphasizes a sleeker and more elongated form. 

buick_18enclaveavenirsu2a_dashboard

2018 Buick Enclave Avenir: Interior View

The rear of the 2018 Buick Enclave is graced with more formed chrome fitting for any luxury car. The rear window makes room for the Buick crest with a small rounded detent, but is otherwise easily viewed out of.

2019 BMW 540i M Sport: Power, Performance, Poise

main-image1

Speeding past all other design monotony on the road, the 2019 5 Series gains traction with integration of BMW’s latest design features.  

bmw_19540imsportsd7a_angularfront

2019 BMW 540i M Sport: Angular Front View

At its snout, the BMW 5 Series has kept its traditional kidney grilles, but now with a little more flair with the addition of especially thick chrome trimming. The wing-like headlights radiate from the grille with a reflective inner chrome trim making them look nearly seamless. This is on top of some edgier daytime running lights that curve around the main bulbs. 

bmw_19540imsportsd7a_frontview

2019 BMW 540i M Sport: Front View

The M Sport variant splits the lower grille into three sections, each with its own piece of hexagonal grille plate. On both sides, the low running fog lights are trimmed with piano black crests. 

bmw_19540imsportsd7a_angularrear

2019 BMW 540i M Sport: Angular Rear View

The rear of the 2019 BMW 540i flattens out keeping its rounded curves to the taillights and lower bumper. Also piano black, the bumper encapsulates the functional exhaust ports and highway-red reflectors. The gentle slope of the back window glass into the top of the trunk finely completes the BMW design. 

bmw_19540imsportsd7a_dashboard

2019 BMW 540i M Sport: Interior View

Moving to the profile you immediately gain a sense of power and strength. From the aggressive shoulder line and downward slope from trunk to front, speed and splendor are exuded. This is met with a flatter obtuse angle of where hood meets windshield, which also reinforces the sense of sportiness and refined aerodynamics. 

bmw_19540imsportsd7a_frontseat

2019 BMW 540i M Sport: Front Seats

Accompanied by some additional piano black vent trim and especially elegant side mirrors make the 540i M Sport an especially high-class option.

Going to NADA 2019? Visit FrogData at Booth #2041S.

The revolution is on and it’s in the form of the Audi A6. With new stylings for 2019, the Audi A6 has been gifted some new additions that are making there way to the entire Audi lineup. 

audi_19a630tquattrosd5ac_angularfront

2019 Audi A6 Quattro: Angular Front View

Overall more aggressive in form and function, the Audi A6 first confronts you with the classic geometric grille, which is more defined with a thicker chrome lining. The headlights are all new and probably more technologically advanced than its competition with animated LED running lights and the homegrown HD Matrix-design. 

audi_19a630tquattrosd5ac_frontview

2019 Audi A6 Quattro: Front View

Front wheel ducts are also increasingly accented, first by the lower grille side expansion and secondly by grey trim on its outer side. The 2019 Audi A6 appears a little more trim with each defining feature more closely knit together than previous iterations. 

audi_19a630tquattrosd5ac_angularrear

2019 Audi A6 Quattro: Angular Rear View

At its profile, the Audi A6 is similar to past models, but sees some nicely triangular redesigned side mirrors with lane traffic indicators and a slightly modified hood that’s more evenly rounded at the front as it falls off into the grille. 

audi_19a630tquattrosd5ac_dashboard

2019 Audi A6 Quattro: Interior View

Progressing to the rear there are some new angles and matching advanced dynamic taillights. Upon activation and use of the turn signal the taillights LEDs turn off and on similar to the TV car KITT from Night Rider. 

audi_19a630tquattrosd5ac_frontseat

2019 Audi A6 Quattro: Front Seats

Moving past the light show is a sturdier looking bumper with accented faux exhaust ports. The rest of the rear is squared and robust and with the dancing taillights a little showy as well.

Audi’s 2019 A6 raises technological standards and puts on light shows which will never go unnoticed on the road or by the competition.

2019 Mazda MX5: Soul Red

main-image1

Straight from the Kodo design room, Mazda’s 2019 Miata is a beautiful ruby snakehead able to wind down any road you take it to. Described as soul red after Mazda’s Kodo Soul design philosophy, Mazda’s paint job is easily the most brilliant red you can find on the asphalt. 

mazda_19mx5grandtouringrf4a_angularfront

2019 Mazda MX5: Angular Front View

From front to back it’s clear that Mazda designed their roadster with simplicity in mind. Compared to competitors who have extraneous ridges and bodylines, Mazda’s approach was to conform to the chassis as much as possible. 

mazda_19mx5grandtouringrf4a_frontview

2019 Mazda MX5: Front View

The grille is especially small and consists of a grid pattern. 

Extremely short in stature, the wheelbase finds itself at the extreme front and rear of the 2019 MX5 keeping body size to a minimum as well as lightweight. The front consists of a sparse and uninterrupted hood that curves up and around the wheel-wells. The headlights are bright snake eyes coming to sharp points, which reinforce the reptilian look. 

mazda_19mx5grandtouringrf4a_angularrear

2019 Mazda MX5: Angular Rear View

Even the curviness of the body is minimal as the body dips in slightly just behind the front wheel and dips out again to accommodate the rear wheel and trunk. The rear of the Mazda MX5 is easily just as simple as the front. The taillights take on a cuter form as circular eyes with wingtip lashes. 

mazda_19mx5grandtouringrf4a_dashboard

2019 Mazda MX5: Interior View

The miniscule stature of the 2019 MX5 comes in full view in its profile. Low to the ground and nearly just as short, with every bend you take you’ll feel you’re gliding just above the road. 

mazda_19mx5grandtouringrf4a_frontseat

2019 Mazda MX5: Front Seats

The Kodo philosophy is ever clear in its intent and the 2019 Mazda MX5 embodies the succinct simplicity in roadster form.

2018 Ferrari Portofino: All New!

main-image

The legendary racing car is reborn by Ferrari in its all-new 2018 Portofino. Equally as curvy as its predecessor, the Portofino is less Ferrari horse and more genteel poise in nature.

ferrari_18portofinocv1ac_angularfront

2018 Ferrari Portofino:Angular Front View

Even if it borrows much influence from the Ferrari design catalogue, features have been slimmed down and drafted to make it its own.

ferrari_18portofinocv1ac_frontview

2018 Ferrari Portofino: Front View

The hood for example, now has a center-raised portion for extra engine space, but also opens up into two air ducts like the California T. The lights have been pushed lower to the side while also curving inward giving the Portofino its recognizable snake eyes.

ferrari_18portofinocv1ac_angularrear

2018 Ferrari Portofino: Angular Rear View

The grille appears nearly untouched, but seasoned Ferrari veterans will notice some sharper corners and the lack of chrome trimming. Just below the grille there is now a protective skirt that rides the bottom of the chassis to both sides of the Portofino, protecting the Red Ferrari paint job.

ferrari_18portofinocv1ac_dashboard

2018 Ferrari Portofino: Interior View

Lastly aficionados may point out the less defined wheel wells and the slightly enlarged and receding front wheel vents. Surprisingly the profile of the Portofino is nearly unchanged compared to its predecessor, although the roof now consists of a single angled slope into a small spoiler rather than a disjointed angle from roof to trunk.

ferrari_18portofinocv1ac_frontseat

2018 Ferrari Portofino: Front Seats

The 2018 Portofino’s rear has seen several changes that make it look more rocket ship than car. Here, the skirt turns into a lower bumper, aerodynamic bottom spoiler and surrounds the exhaust pipes. The rest of the rear has seen little variation with notable changes to the taillights, which are now more exposed for better visibility, and a third break-light added to the top of the trunk.

ferrari_18portofinocv1ac_rearseat

2018 Ferrari Portofino: Rear Seats

Wrapping up, it seems odd to say that the Portofino has made good on needed changes to the Ferrari aesthetic. For some, it may be hard to redesign perfection, but Ferrari has learned how to reshape it into new form with the 2018 Portofino.
