While the full-size Range Rover may be the unofficial minivan of Beverly Hills, maker Land Rover says the smaller Range Rover Sport is the darling of New York. Seeking to reinforce the Big Apple's love, Land Rover announced Monday the all-new Sport would debut at the N.Y. International Auto Show later in March. The Range Rover Sport will be the second generation of the midsize SUV from Land Rover. It follows the Range Rover and the compact Evoque to market and will likely feature many of its sibling's design characteristics.

Think of mid-size luxury SUVs as a stable of thoroughbreds. Porsche has its Cayenne, Mercedes-Benz its ML and GL, and Audi its Q7. The Japanese brands have their X models: Acura's MDX, Lexus' GX and Infiniti's QX60. For 2014, two redesigned purebreds join the mix: BMW's third-generation X5, and Land Rover's second-generation Range Rover Sport. Each of the newcomers approaches this competitive segment - where prices range from $50,000 to $90,000 - with a different philosophy.

Land Rover, citing the New York area's market as its largest in the world for its Range Rover Sport SUV, brought an all-new version to the 2013 New York International Auto Show on Tuesday night. Designed as an amalgamation of the compact Evoque crossover and the full-size Range Rover -- the unofficial minivan of Beverly Hills -- the Sport draws design cues from both. The second-generation Sport is 2.5 inches longer and rides on a wheelbase that's 7 inches longer than its five-passenger predecessor.

With the impending Labor Day weekend about to put the final nail in summer's coffin, automakers around the globe are turning their attention to auto shows. This year's season unofficially kicks off Sept. 10, when Germany's Frankfurt Auto Show will open its doors to the automotive press.  One of the largest auto shows in the world, the Frankfurt event is held every two years. Dozens of world debuts are expected from automakers; many of these will then make their way to Los Angeles in November for their North American debuts at our own Los Angeles Auto Show.

When I first heard about the Range Rover Sport -- a low-slung performance SUV from the Wellie-wearing stalwarts at Land Rover -- I had to engage the traction control on my gag reflex. Oh, please. It's one thing if dollar-drunk pro athletes and celebs want to slam their Range Rovers with 22-inch wheels, plastic aero petticoats and belly-scraping suspension mods, and in the process give these amazing off-roaders the engineering equivalent of a lobotomy.

It's not every day an automaker promotes a feature that sucks. But Honda unveiled a refreshed version of its popular Odyssey minivan at the 2013 New York Auto Show with a unique option -- a vacuum cleaner built into the rear cargo area. It's the first vacuum-equipped vehicle to hit the market, ready to suck up all the snacks and drinks spilled by the kids. Honda said it worked with Shop-Vac to design the HondaVac, with a replaceable filter and bag. The contraption fits into two small compartments built into the left side of the rear cargo area.

It's the Bel-Air buggy, the minivan of Malibu, the lorry of Laguna Beach. For years, the Range Rover has existed in a rarefied space where high-end luxury and off-road performance converge, to the delight of a moneyed class that rarely gets it dirty. Land Rover has long boasted that its full-size Range Rover sport utility vehicle has few peers. This is true. But that's less because of its strengths than a simple lack of competitors in the same size and price category. Far from being complacent with this distinction, Land Rover released a completely redesigned Range Rover for 2013.

The tuner market in the U.K. is fundamentally different from that in the United States. Here, customers are more likely to turn the wrenches themselves, if possible. In Britain, Jeeves rings up the garage and someone comes 'round to pick up the vehicle, returning it complete with hi-po ministrations. For Range Rover owners across the Pond, the people to call are Overfinch. This fall, the 30-year-old firm will offer a boosted, 5.

Luxury car and SUV sales and leases are up 11% so far this year after climbing 13.7% in 2012, according to a new analysis by Kelley Blue Book. The growth has been driven by sales at the lower end of the luxury segment, said Alec Gutierrez, senior analyst at auto price information company Kelley Blue Book. "The brands that are doing best are the entry level luxuries lines: Acura, Infiniti, Lexus," Gutierrez said. "Success at the entry level is why you see Mercedes-Benz introducing the CLA and BMW introducing the 320i.

Jaguar will use the 2013 New York International Auto Show to kick things up a notch for its full-size XJ lineup. The automaker will unveil a 550-horsepower XJR at a news conference Wednesday. The XJR will be the flagship of the lineup and will use a retuned version of the 5-liter supercharged V-8 that Jaguar currently uses in the lesser XJ Supercharged and Supersport. In addition to the boost in power of at least 40 horsepower, the XJR will also include upgrades to the "chassis and aerodynamic components.
