2016 New York International Auto Show: A Recap
There is no city in the world like New York, and when the Big Apple rolls out the red carpet, none but the best in the world attend. The same could be said for the 2016 New York International Auto Show that featured some of the world’s finest cars on show. Among the show’s celebrated debuts were the mobile executive suite—the Lincoln Navigator Concept with gullwing doors, the red hot sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Korean manufacturer Genesis’ latest futuristic concept. The Genesis proved that it too could punch way above its weight, taking on established names such as Mercedes, BMW, Toyota, Alfa Romeo and Subaru on foreign turf—turning heads and winning hearts with eye-popping exteriors and super-luxurious space-age interiors. While SUVs such as the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and the revamped Grand Cherokee Summit ruled the roost with the luxury sports sedans, the diversity of the NYIAS shone through with several commercial models including the sedan and hatchback versions of the Subaru Impreza, Mercedes-AMG C63 cabriolet, and the Toyota Prius Prime.
