So if you can't get the Coach Door model this year, then there's still a chance to put one in your garage in the future. The rumors are true because coach doors, also known as suicide doors, are coming back to the Lincoln Continental after becoming a famous part of the model's design in the 1960s.

It will live on in Asian markets as the Grandeur. Say goodbye to the Hyundai Azera, at least in the United States. The Korean automaker’s official word on changes for the 2018 model year include a revamped Accent and Elantra GT, not to mention the all-new Kona compact crossover.
