Over the past 117 years, the New York International Auto Show has become a hallmark event in the automotive industry. The show kicks off every year during Easter weekend, and marks the unofficial end of the big auto show calendar.
While not as imposing as the Paris Motor Show or Detroit’s North American International Auto Show, New York’s event has made a name for itself by hosting North American premieres of vehicles first launched at the Geneva show. It also serves as a platform for several American and Asian manufacturers to introduce their latest sport coupes, SUVs and luxury sedans for the next model-year.
The Big Apple is, like Los Angeles, a major market for luxury vehicles, with 13.1% of sales according to research firm IHS Markit.
Here’s a quick list of the new models debuting at this beautiful springtime auto show in the coming days (press days are April 11-13, and the show is open to visitors April 14-23):
