November has seen a flurry of new cars, and we are here to bring you all the info! Scroll through our list and let us know in the comments which is your favorite new release! Here’s our first round-up:
Audi A8L Horch
While we at OneRequest generally save non-US market cars for a separate post, it just seems likely that this flagship with a resurrected name will eventually make its way stateside. For now, this Chinese market exclusive is a more luxurious version of Audi’s biggest sedan, with additional badging, pillows, and functionality in the back seat. The wheels are gorgeous and the name is a throwback to one of the four companies that merged to form Audi, hence the four rings of the logo.
Hyundai Kona N-Line
With the ground effects of the full-blown N-Line model but the standard turbocharged four-cylinder, the N-Line is definitely a more street-centric version of Hyundai’s N product. Instead of running hot laps, the N-Line is perfectly happy around town and can be acquired for around $27,000.
Based on the existing CX-5, this new model adds some light off-road chops to the classic crossover formula. It’s no secret that Mazda has been stylistically appealing for many years and their design language lends itself well to the more rugged formula that has been sweeping the crossover scene in the past few years. We can’t wait to see one in person!
The SL is back! Now in its seventh generation and internally codenamed the R232, this new car is said to share no components with the outgoing SL and also none with Mercedes’ similar-but-different AMG GT Cabriolet. It will feature a 2+2 layout for the first time since 1989 and will come standard with all-wheel drive and a return to the soft top (and more luggage space!) Prices will start just over the six-figure mark.
Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge
The latest in their small line-up to get the dark and faster Black Badge treatment is the Ghost. Featuring a more powerful, 592 horsepower V12 and blackout treatment for the exterior, this car is the answer for what at least a few people asked for and it sure is handsome. Seeing as Rolls-Royce has already committed to an all-EV fleet in the near future, now is the time to enjoy these stunning handcrafted automobiles in their internal combustion splendor.
Subaru’s version of Toyota’s bZ4X will be called the Solterra. Featuring the same all-electric underpinnings, this partnership will feature AWD (in true Subaru fashion) and handsome interiors to make the commute more inviting. EVs for the masses!

Honda has added a new TrailSport trim to its full-size Pilot SUV. With a bit more ground clearance, 18” black wheels, and meatier tires, this $44,785 entry into the light off-roading segment will carry seven off the pavement with all the ergonomics you expect from the brand.
