The Audi SQ5 came out of nowhere, and it turned out to be a hell of a surprise.

With 354 horsepower on tap, the SQ5 certainly knows how to hustle.

The Kia Stinger wasn't a surprise in the sense that everybody knew it was coming from teaser sites and the like.

It was a surprise in the sense that Kia actually built an impressively sexy sport sedan.

But its dedication to doing something different, at least on the outside, surprised more than a couple of us.

It may not be any more exciting to drive than before, but rest assured, it will still sell like gangbusters.

Nissan Vmotion 2.0 Concept

Nissan's Vmotion 2.0 concept surprised us with a clean look that will hopefully trickle down to actual production models over the next several years.

We can do without the silly half steering wheel thing, but the rest is absolutely spot on.
