This year's Detroit Auto Show is now in full swing, and while today has brought a number of new unveilings, the past week has not been without its surprises.

As one of the motoring calendar's most important events, Detroit is the site of significant new model launches and previews, and this year has been no exception.

Follow our ongoing wrap-up below, and click through to each model for more details on what to expect in 2013 (or 2014, in some cases).

At the premium end, we've seen the new midweight fighters from Japanese rivals Lexus and Infiniti, with both the new IS sedan and Q50 sedan revealed this week.

Also on display in the premium quarter is BMW's new 4 Series Coupe concept, revealed online late last year. Watch for this one to debut in production form later in the year.

Other new models from BMW on show at Detroit include the updated Z4 roadster and the brand-new M6 Gran Coupe.

The Lincoln MKC SUV concept was also revealed, but like the MKZ sedan before it, don't expect to see this one in Australia.

Audi's previously revealed diesel-powered SQ5 performance SUV has made the leap to petrol - specifically for the US market - and the carmaker is using Detroit to show buyers there what they can expect.

More importantly for Australian buyers, Audi is also showing its new RS 7 Sportback sledgehammer in Detroit, ahead of its debut here in early 2014.

Prestige rival Mercedes-Benz has pulled out all the stops for the big event, revealing its fully updated E-Class range over the past few weeks.

This week, Merc has also revealed its brand-new CLA small four-door coupe, which will enter the range below the C-Class and sit alongside the new A-Class range.

Maserati won't be left behind in 2013 either, with its brand-new Quattroporte large sedan, revealed late last year, also on display in Detroit this week.

Hyundai has made its intentions clear this week also, revealing an even more up-market take on its Genesis brand with the HCD-14 concept.

The top-tune John Cooper Works version of MINI's new Paceman is also on display, as is Volkswagen's Golf R Cabriolet. While the former is bound for Australia, it remains to be seen if the latter will also come.

Perhaps the most significant unveiling this week though is the new C7 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, promising true 911 and GT-R rivalling prowess. Chev is doubling down on that threat by reviving the revered Stingray name.

Moving down into the volume-selling ranks, Honda has revealed the Urban SUV concept in Detroit, previewing a new Jazz-based crossover that should hit production in the coming year.

Toyota has also showcased its sharp new Furia concept, describing the small four-door as a preview of the next-generation Corolla Sedan bound for America - and, just maybe, Australia.

Volkswagen has also teased its intentions in the family-hauling market, revealing its new CrossBlue concept. Unveiled in six-seater form, the CrossBlue is expected to hit production as a seven-seater.

Also 'new' in the SUV field is Jeep's updated Grand Cherokee, picking up new styling tricks, a new interior and - at last - an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Keep an eye on TMR for more updates out of Detroit this week.
