New York Auto Show

  • 2019 Jaguar I-Pace

    The days of all long-hood, shapely Jaguar sedans and coupes may be numbered. The automaker’s 2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric car made its U.S. debut this week at the 2018 New York auto show and its designer Wayne Burgess said that drawing the I-Pace required him to skip what made his Aston Martin DB9 and Jaguar F-Types universally admired. “If I were to design an electric sports car or supercar, I would make it as cab-forward as I could—what’s not to love about a Lamborghini Countach? Or a Series 1 Lotus Esprit? I think you can get a really, really exciting electric...

    Jaguar interested in building I-Pace SVR

    The future may hold another performance-oriented Jaguar SVR model, but rather than one based on a raucous supercharged internal-combustion engine, the brand is reportedly considering an I-Pace SVR, based on its first purely electric SUV. At the 2018 New York auto show, Hanno Kirner, Jaguar Land...

  • Lincoln Aviator SUV, 2018 New York auto show
    Lincoln Aviator video preview

    Lincoln has been Ford's wayward son for decades. But suddenly the brand that didn't seem to have a direction has one. The future at Lincoln involves more SUVs and more electrification, and both are embodied in the reborn Lincoln Aviator. We last saw the Aviator in 2006, when it was a gussied up...

  • Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak concept, 2018 New York auto show
    VW teases potential US pickup truck with Atlas Tanoak concept

    Might a unibody pickup truck from Volkswagen be on the cards? Quite possibly. The German automaker on Wednesday unveiled the Atlas Tanoak concept at the 2018 New York auto show. It's a mid-size pickup based on the Volkswagen Group's flexible MQB modular platform, and while there are no plans for a...

  • Genesis Essentia, 2018 New York auto show
    Genesis Essentia video preview

    Concept cars this year are either fast, green, or coming soon. The Genesis Essentia Concept you see here is fast, and it’s green. Coming soon? We’re not so sure. Let’s get this out of the way right now. It’s highly unlikely that we’ll see this coupe on the streets...

    2019 Mazda CX-3 brings a more refined interior

    Mazda's CX-3 is a solid option for buyers in the compact crossover SUV segment, and that's before you take into account the good looks.

  • 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec, 2018 New York auto show

    More aggressive styling appears to be the order of the day. Many automakers are applying an extra dose of pumped-up sporting pretenses. The latest machine to get this treatment? The new 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec, which was unveiled on Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show and is due in showrooms in the summer. This game is familiar by now. Revised fascias, dark trim pieces, and a fresh badge to denote the altered dynamic presence. That's what the MDX A-Spec delivers for the crossover SUV shopper that would prefer they were driving something with more actual punch. As opposed to the increased...

  • 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio equipped with Nero Edizione package
    Alfa Romeo's Nero Edizione package for Giulia and Stelvio debuts in New York

    There's an easy way to anger up almost any vehicle. You add black. It's simple, but it works. Alfa Romeo understands this, which is why the Italian automaker has turned to a dash of the dark stuff for two of its models. Though Alfa Romeo isn't calling it "black", the dark shade is being welcomed...

  • 2019 Hyundai Tucson
    2019 Hyundai Tucson: sharper, safer, and now without a turbo

    The Hyundai Tucson doesn't part ways with the current compact crossover SUV formula for the 2019 model year, but it gets a little sharper and adds a dash of active safety to sweeten the deal. Hyundai debuted the updated Tucson on Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show, where the brand's latest...

  • 2019 Volkswaen Arteon R-Line, 2018 New York auto show
    2019 Volkswagen Arteon gets racy looks with R-Line package

    It's not the Arteon R performance variant Volkswagen has hinted at in the past, but the 2019 Arteon R-Line package does spice things up visually. VW announced on Tuesday that it will debut the racier R-Line variant at the 2018 New York auto show next week. What does the R-Line package net buyers?...

    Genesis Essentia Concept: Here’s your luxury Rorschach test

    Pick two for your concept car this year: Fast, green, or coming soon. The Genesis Essentia Concept that bowed Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show opted for fast and green, a future look at a distant electric two-door coupe from the nascent luxury automaker. The Essentia’s look takes...

  • 2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo, 2018 New York auto show

    According to Ricky Bobby, it was Eleanor Roosevelt that said "America is all about speed. Hot, nasty, badass speed." Italy's Maserati has taken that quote to heart. That's why the automaker decided that the New York International Auto Show is the perfect place to show off its new Levante Trofeo super SUV, which was previously thought to be a Levante GTS. There's no V-6 between these fenders. This Levante Trofeo packs a muscular V-8 that just so happens to be built by Ferrari. Sitting in the nose of this very sporty utility vehicle is a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. In fact, this engine has...

  • 2019 Kia K900, 2018 New York auto show
    2019 Kia K900 pushes the flagship sedan into more premium territory

    Kia believes it's set a new standard for Korean luxury, and such ethos resides within the 2019 K900, the brand's redesigned flagship sedan. Kia attests everything is new, redesigned, and fresh aside from the car's actual name. At its local debut Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show, the K900...

  • 2019 Acura RDX, 2018 New York auto show
    2019 Acura RDX adds to brand's SUV momentum

    Acura hasn't had success with its sedans in recent years, but the SUVs have carried the brand. Judging by the looks of the 2019 Acura RDX, that trend will continue. We saw the RDX prototype in January in Detroit, and the production model unveiled at the 2018 New York auto show on Wednesday is...

  • 2019 Cadillac CT6, 2018 New York auto show

  • 2019 Nissan Altima, 2018 New York auto show

    There's a new Nissan Altima coming to showrooms this fall as a 2019 model, and it made its debut on Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show. The car represents the sixth generation for the Altima nameplate and a core pillar of Nissan's sales strategy here in the United States. The 2019 Altima brings a bold look, available all-wheel drive, and Nissan's VC-Turbo variable compression engine that we first saw on the 2019 Infiniti QX50, but it still misses out on hybrid tech that rivals offer. That may change at a later date, however. The standard powertrain is a 2.5-liter inline-4 delivering 188...

  • Classic Mini with electric powertrain
    Classic Mini made electric for New York auto show

    Mini didn't have a new car to present at the 2018 New York auto show. Instead, it had an old one. A very old one. The British brand unveiled a classic Mini on Wednesday in the Big Apple, one with an electric powertrain conversion. Why, you ask? Mini will launch an electric version of its Hardtop...

  • 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback, 2018 New York auto show
    Baby got back: 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback debuts in New York

    As much as we love Audi Sport's latest RS 5 coupe, the car's two-door body is definitely a limiting factor. Which coupe owner doesn't feel a tinge of pain folding down the front seats whenever friends or family, muddy shoes and all, have to climb into the back? The solution is the new RS 5...
