2017 Aston Martin DB11

At long last, Aston Martin's kicked off what it calls its "Second Century" product plan with the ravishing DB11. The new four-seat grand tourer replaces the DB9, and rides on a new version of the company's aluminum architecture. Power comes from a 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V-12 with 600 hp. An eight-speed automatic delivers that thrust to the rear wheels. Aston promises a 0-60 mph time of under 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of more than 200 mph. Future versions of the DB11 will get a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 sourced from Mercedes-AMG. Aston plans for seven new vehicles over the next five years, including new versions of the Vantage and Vanquish sports cars, as well as its first crossover SUV.

2017 Bentley Mulsanne

Bentley calls the Mulsanne its pinnacle car, and with rivals like the Maybach and Rolls Ghost, it can hardly stop climbing. This year, the Mulsanne carries over its powertrains, but adds new body styles. There's an Extended Wheelbase car with 9.84 inches added at the rear doors for executive-class rear-seat accommodations. If that's not big enough, Bentley will commission a six-passenger Mulsanne Grand Limousine to order. The longest-wheelbase Mulsanne sports an extra 39.4 inches of body, four rear seats that face each other, and a staggering array of fit and finish choices, all for an undisclosed price.

2017 Bugatti Chiron

When Bugatti delivered the Veyron, its quad-turbocharged W-16 engine and 2.5-seconds 0-60 mph times were the stuff of legend. More than a decade later, the Chiron aims to rewrite that legend with more of everything. Output is up to 1,480 hp, and Bugatti claims a 0-60 mph time of under 2.5 seconds. Top speed is said to be governed to 261 mph on public roads, but it's said the Chiron can reach 288 mph under very controlled circumstances. Only 500 copies will be built, and each will cost north of $2.6 million.

2017 Hyundai Ioniq

The Toyota Prius has another hybrid-hatchback rival in the offing. The new Hyundai Ioniq is a trio of compacts built to challenge the Prius on its turf, and more. Hyundai plans three versions of the Ioniq: a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid, and a battery-electric car. While the world had its first look at the greenest Hyundai in Geneva, more technical details are on hold until the car makes its U.S. debut later this month at the New York auto show.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback

Honda promised us a third model in the new Civic lineup, after delivering the four-door sedan and two-door coupe. Here's number three: the Civic hatchback, which arrives in showrooms next year via the U.K., where it'll be built. The five-door will have powertrains that mirror those on the sedan, so expect a base four-cylinder and an uprated and turbocharged four-cylinder, both with manual or automatic transmissions. Still to come are Civic Si and Type-R models, which could be based on the coupe and hatchback models.
