Toyota FT-1

Toyota’s latest concept car is the “Future Toyota 1,” a new track car inspired by past models such as the 2000GT and Supra. 

Volvo Concept XC Coupé

The XC is Volvo’s latest offering for drivers with an active lifestyle. The XC combines design elements and cargo space from its current SUV lineup with a two-door, four-seater coupe. 

Kia GT4 Stinger 

The GT4 Stinger isn’t Kia’s first concept car, but it may be the most impressive. The rear-wheel-drive Stinger will deliver 315 horsepower with a track-tested 2.0-liter turbocharged four-banger. 

Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupé

This sporty hybrid SUV combines a turbocharged V6 with two electric motors to deliver 415 horsepower, a top speed of 147 miles per hour and a zero-to-60 time of less than six seconds. VW estimates an all-electric range of 13 miles; in hybrid mode, the CrossBlue Coupé is expected to travel more than 500 miles.
