Of all the cars to get turned into a tracked snowmobile, the quirky little Nissan Juke seemed one of the least likely. To say that few auto enthusiasts saw the Nissan Juke Nismo RSnow coming would be an understatement.

The Nismo RSnow is essentially a Juke Nismo RS with minor exterior modifications, a reprogrammed torque-vectoring AWD system, and 815-pound (370 kg) DOMINATOR Track Systems snow tracks.

Power is provided by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 218 horsepower and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft.) of torque.

Extensive testing in deep powder snow on the frozen Uddjaur Lake in Arjeplog, Sweden, revealed the Juke Nismo RSnow to be capable of traveling more than 50 mph (85 km/h) in Arctic conditions as cold as -31 degrees F (-35 C). It has a top speed of approximately 62 mph (100 km/h) in less frigid temperatures.

The one-off Nissan Juke Nismo RSnow was developed as a support vehicle for an ice drifting event in Lapland, Finland.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

The Cross Sport is more stylish than the regular Atlas.

Volkswagen has revealed the all-new Atlas Cross Sport, expanding the Atlas lineup with a sportier, coupe-like crossover.

As a five-seat alternative to the regular Atlas, the Cross Sport eliminates the third row of seats in favor of a sleeker profile but still manages to provides 40.3 cubic feet of stowage space when the rear seats are up and 77.8 cu ft when folded flat.

A three-bar chrome grille, unique headlights, and more sculpted hood gives it a more upscale look than its larger sibling, while an available R-Line package amps up the sportiness factor with 21-inch wheels and sportier bumpers with chrome and piano black accents around the lower front air scoops.

The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport will be built alongside the Atlas and Passat at VW’s Chattanooga plant, with the first deliveries arriving in spring 2020.

It also benefits from new colors and more options.

Toyota has given the C-HR a few styling and tech modifications for the 2020 model year.

The biggest updates are at the front, where the small crossover features LED headlights, a restyled grille, and a new bumper.

The interior updates are small, and include new seatback pockets and windshield visor extensions for the XLE trim level, and an 8-way power driver’s seat and Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) with headlamp auto-leveling for the Limited.

On the tech front, the C-HR now offers Android Auto to go along with the pre-existing Apple CarPlay and comes standard with SiriusXM satellite radio.

The 2020 Toyota C-HR continues to be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque, sent to the front wheels by a CVT transmission. All-wheel drive is still not offered.
