Get ready for the battle of the crossovers. Hyundai unveiled a complete redesign of its Santa Fe sport-utility at the New York International Auto Show. The mid-sized crossover now follows the sleeker “fluidic sculpture” styling the brand has used to turn its Elantra and Sonata sedans into bestsellers. The South Korean automaker is growing the Santa Fe a bit.  One version will be longer. Hyundai will sell a three-row, seven-passenger model for the first time.  But the overall dimensions of the standard 2013 Santa Fe will be about the same as the previous generation, although Hyundai has taken about 100 lbs. out of the vehicle in a move that improves fuel economy.

Stung by criticism from consumers, its own dealers and auto reviewers, Honda Motor Co. is about to begin selling a significantly redesigned Civic. The changes come after only a year of the current-generation model. Automakers rarely rush to remake a vehicle so new to the market. Honda is making changes to the sheet metal on the vehicle to give it a more aggressive, sportier look. Inside, it is improving comfort, changing the much-criticized interior and is revamping the sedan's driving characteristics.

It's hardly a Trump Tower-like effort to put together a hot night life space. Sure, there's the licensing, staffing, furnishing and promoting, but it's usually something that can be done in a couple months. Unless, of course, you inherit a monster like the one that sits at 1439 Ivar Ave. in Hollywood. Nestled behind Amoeba Music, across from the ArcLight Cinemas structure, the yawning, 18,000-square-foot space has seen several incarnations come and go, and now it's been reinvented again as the super club Lure.
