The entire theme of this year’s auto show in New York was based on regular use cars instead of the high-tech sports cars and supercars sported on the Geneva motor show. Naturally different mass-market mainstream car companies leaded the show. The highlight of the season were the crossovers and SUVs mostly, presented in every color, shape and size possible to imagine. There were a lot of concept cars, EVs, sports cars, sedans on the exhibition as well. There was fresh unveiling of new models from brands like Hyundai, Honda, Cadillac, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru, Lincoln, Acura, Toyota, Nissan, Kia, Volkswagen, Genesis, Audi and a lot more, so that you may never run out of cars to admire. Lets rerun a few top points of the show.
The Auto Show took place in the Javits Center and closed the exhibit on April 8th. The major target of the show was to get the public close to the cars that had the potential of getting into the showrooms of their cities. The crossover SUV department was swayed away by Atlas Cross Sport from Volkswagen.
Volkswagen highlighted the crossover SUV department with its five-seat crossover, Atlas Cross Sport. Following that the Atas Tanoak Concept also found its way to the crowd. This crossover utility truck is meant to make its mark inside the showrooms of the States.
Cadillac has made for itself an SUV for contending parties BMW and Land Rover Range Rover, the 2019 XT4. But there’s a bit of a surprise there, the very unique Super Cruise technology that debuted last year, which basically makes the Cadillac a semi-autonomous car with sensors, cameras and extensive navigation options, is not being offered in this SUV, or to the CT6 V-sport, also introduced in the New York Auto Show. Even though the SUV doesn’t offer something out of the box, its high definition seems to be enough when its coming from a Cadillac pit, and it also offers a wireless charging pad, which probably will be a useful addition.
Luxury brand Acura came in with a couple of crossovers, the 2019 MDX A-SPEC, and the 2019 RDX.
Other additions included the 2019 Lincoln Aviator, the RAM 1500, and the Lexus UX.
Performance crossover SUVs that received the limelight were the 2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo powered by a 590 hp engine from Ferrari, the 650 hp boosting Urus from Lamborghini, the 550 hp loading 2019 Jaguar F-PACE, alongside electric cars including the Hyundai Kona electric and the Jaguar I-PACE.
Subaru came up with something strikingly new. The Subaru Forester which is on of the best-sellers from the brand, along with EyeSight, the driver-assist system, there comes DriverFocus, which is designed to tally the focus of the driver, whether he is too distracted or too sleepy to drive. The DriverFocus can save records of up to five different drivers of a car and get accustomed to their driving attitudes. This latest framework will be available on the most expensive Forester in the market.
Nissan brings out a redesign of its best-selling Altima, the ProPilot Assist, which makes the car a semi-autonomous one. The company has made a promise, to make this technology available at a fraction of the average cost it takes to get one, like the Cadillac or a Tesla automated version.
The all-electric Genesis Essentia with its grand tourer concept, comes with a glamorous style, boasting a transparent hood, a bubble roof, along with many other fancy hallmarks making it fall in the luxury segment.
Here are just a few of the important highlights that we thought you ought to know about. Lets put our hands together for the fresh arrivals in the showrooms.
