2019 Subaru Forester: Subaru will roll out its rival to the RAV4 above, a redesigned Forester. Subaru hasn't released any further details on its new Forester but we already have a good idea of what to expect thanks to prototype sightings. They suggest the new Forester will resemble a scaled-down version of Subaru’s 3-row, 7-seat Ascent mid-sizer. Both SUVs arrive for 2019.

We'll also see a sporty A-Spec model.

2019 Nissan Altima: Nissan has a redesign for its Altima coming up. The automaker has released a teaser sketch that hints at the new look for the popular mid-size sedan. Unfortunately, there isn't much else to go on though you can count on Nissan not shaking things up too much. Expect a 4-cylinder as the standard option and possibly V-6 and hybrid options for those seeking greater performance.

2019 Ford Fusion: Ford will present an updated version of its Fusion. This is the second update for the current generation of the popular mid-size sedan, and while there's no performance upgrades there are some new safety features, which buyers in the segment are likely more interested in. The highlight is Ford's new Co-Pilot360, which groups numerous safety features in the one package.

Volkswagen Atlas 5-seater concept: Volkswagen's plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee is about to get its third vehicle in the form of a smaller, 2-row version of the 3-row Atlas that's already built there (VW also builds the Passat at the plant). We'll only see a concept version of the new SUV in N.Y. but a production version should arrive in the next year or two.
