With the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen concept, now bowing at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, the German automaker heralds the all-wheel-drive diesel hatchback as a "bigger, more spacious, and more fuel-efficient replacement for the Jetta SportWagen." The concept is 1.1 inches longer, 0.7 inches wider and 0.9 inches lower than the current Jetta SportWagen, and the wheels are 1.7 inches farther forward.

On the front end, the hood slopes down into the front fenders instead of the fender peaks being higher than the hood, in addition to a more angular horizontal design and slender grille, VW says. In the rear is a clean surface around the VW badge, a wider rear window and geometric taillights.

Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept: First Look and Gallery

13863729915_c3a9c1490b

Looks like: George Jetson's Land Rover with plenty of wraparound glass, rear-hinged doors, a sleek profile and laser headlights

Defining characteristics: Ultra-configurable seating for four to seven passengers as well as a host of from-the-future gadgets

Ridiculous features: It's the ultimate luxury toy with a remote control system that allows you to control the SUV from your smartphone

Chance of being mass-produced: Land Rover confirmed that a new family of vehicles under the Defender umbrella will be produced — we're betting not one of them will be remote-controlled

One thing we've noticed ahead of the 2014 New York International Auto Show is that concept cars are few and far between. In fact, Land Rover may have one of the only concept reveals — but what a concept it is. The Discovery Vision Concept gives us a hint at the automaker's plans for a family of new SUVs along with a glimpse into some pretty out-there technology.

Land Rover says the design embodies the "ultimate leisure SUV," and nowhere is that more apparent than inside. The cabin is finished in two types of washable and water- and oil-repellent leather along with wood veneer on the floors and instrument panel and Harris tweed accents — how very British.

The SUV concept's highly configurable cabin makes room for anywhere from four to seven passengers with seats that fold, slide and even convert into a tablelike surface. But don't start looking for the buttons and levers yet — all of this is done via a touch-screen menu.

Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept Headed to the New York Auto Show

Land Rover is planning to debut a new concept with a very storied name at the New York International Auto Show, but the concept doesn't just preview one new Land Rover SUV, rather it marks a whole new sub-brand for the automaker. Land Rover says the Discovery Vision Concept "will showcase the design and technology vision for a future new family of Discovery vehicles."

More 2014 New York Auto Show News

The first-generation of the Discovery was introduced in England 25 years ago and was eventually known in the U.S. as the LR4. Based on the dark teaser video above, the Discovery Vision Concept appears to be LR4-sized and offer configurable seating for seven, hinting at that model's eventual replacement.

Check out the teaser video for more details and check back with us in mid-April for more Land Rover news from the 2014 New York Auto Show.

Maserati Shows Alfieri Concept, Makes Us Excited for Next GranTurismo

Maseraticoncept500

The 2014 Geneva International Motor Show is in full swing, and one of the highlights is the sexy concept coupe from Maserati, the Alfieri. Built on the occasion of Maserati's 100th anniversary, it's meant to point the direction of future Maserati sports cars. The company's only coupe is currently the GranTurismo, which is starting to get a little long in the tooth, and always has been considered more of a boulevardier than a sports car.

560 Horsepower Means Infiniti is Serious About Eau Rouge

560hpEauRouge

There are sport sedans and then there are sport sedans. For years BMW has played in this arena with the M3, Mercedes-Benz with the C63 AMG and Audi with the RS 4 and RS 5. Now it seems Infiniti wants a piece of the super-high-performance segment with its Q50 in the skin of the Eau Rouge concept that we first saw at the 2014 Detroit auto show in January.

The problem then was Infiniti didn't reveal the engine that would be under the hood.

Related: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rogue Concept Photo Gallery (23 Photos)

Today, its proudly announcing that there's a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 under the hood good for 560 horsepower. Sound familiar?

It's the same engine that powers Nissan's GT-R supercar, which in its latest incarnation takes the engine's total output to 600 horses.

Like the GT-R, the engine is teamed to an all-wheel-drive system and mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission for a zero-to-60-mph time of less than 4 seconds.

There's no confirmation that this uber Q will make it to production, but it'd be hard for Infiniti to back down from challenging the likes of its above-mentioned competitors along with Cadillac's powerful V models after this announcement.

Mazda Reveals Hazumi Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Mazda-concept

Mazda is on a styling roll these days with the beautiful Mazda6 sedan and appealing Mazda3 compact making waves for their swoopy looks. That leaves the small Mazda2 next in line for a revision. We may have just gotten a look at its future with the unveiling of the new Hazumi concept at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show.

More Geneva Motor Show News

Featuring the latest version of Mazda's "Kodo" design language, the company likes to draw comparisons to animals for the look of the subcompact five-door hatchback. Phrases such as "cheetah-like face" with the "look of an animal on the prowl" are not inappropriate. However, the Hazumi does have a dynamic, sculpted look that wouldn't be out of place in Mazda showrooms as the next Mazda2. The lines almost evoke an Alfa Romeo feel to the car, with elements of Mazda's other vehicles thrown in.

Subaru VIZIV 2 Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show

12929474193_8b10895c67

Looks like: Yet another dynamic-looking concept from Subaru

Defining characteristics: Plug-in hybrid powertrain

Ridiculous features: Scissor-like front doors; they're hinged at the front corners and open upward

Chance of being mass-produced: Subaru has announced plans to replace the Tribeca, its largest SUV; could the concept be a preview of the Tribeca’s replacement? 

Subaru spells "vision for innovation" VIZIV with its new crossover concept. Versions of the hybrid concept were shown at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show as well as the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, but this iteration, called VIZIV 2, has four doors and room for four adult passengers, according to Subaru.

More Concept Cars

Part of the VIZIV 2 concept's front end should ring some bells; it wears a large hexagon-shaped grille that's similar to the redesigned-for-2015 Legacy. The slitlike headlights that flank it are reminiscent of those on the 2015 WRX. The striking circular LED fog lamps, however, don't really share the Subaru family resemblance.
