New 2018 Car Models and Redesigns

Compact SUVs, crossovers, sport sedans, and some racy coupes are rolling out to the dealerships, so if you're in the market for a new car, the choices are out there. 

As the auto industry continues to try to adapt to America's growing disdain of the boring old midsize sedan, you'll find many of these new cars are compact and sub-compact SUVs and crossovers. Wondering what happened to the hatchback? They're here too; in fact, you may have to squint to see the difference.

Many existing popular vehicles, such as the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, have been redesigned, and we've got those for you too.

Here are some of the newest car models and redesigns for 2018-2019.
