25 Hot Cars at the New York Auto Show
Check out tomorrow's supercars, sedans and SUVs today.
It’s heaven on wheels: The world’s biggest luxury automakers have unveiled their 2017 models at the New York International Auto Show, and they include souped-up supercars, futuristic concepts (a Lincoln Navigator with gull-wing doors?) and a number of surprises (like Maserati’s first SUV). Here are 25 models that have us recalculating our 401k balances.
Porsche 718 Boxster
This gorgeous turbocharged upgrade of Porsche’s iconic Boxster has a 2.0-liter engine, 300 horsepower, a six-speed manual transmission, and the ability to make us relax on sight.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
The 2017 Camaro is getting rave reviews, and not just for looks. It packs serious muscle that belies its status as a sixth-generation vehicle: A 6.2-liter V8 engine, 640 horsepower and a 6-speed automatic or 10-speed manual transmission.
Mazda MX5 RF
A head-turning beauty that references the ’60s Corvette Stingray (to our mind), the MX5 RF two-seater boasts a retractable hard-top, best-in-class fuel economy (42.3 miles per gallon?!) and a trunkful of awards.
The Swedish carmaker has blown out the idea of what a hybrid plug-in car can be: The Regera has 1,500 horsepower and can hit 124 mph in 6.6 seconds.
Aston Martin DB11
James Bond’s brand debuts its next generation with this aerodynamic beauty, which has a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, 8-speed automatic transmission and a top speed of 200mph. You’ll need to have $211,995.
Genesis New York Concept
Hyundai spins off its Genesis line into an independent brand with this crowd favorite, which has a nifty ceramic blue paint job, 241-horsepower hybrid engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission and an instrument panel that’s a 21-inch curved LED screen.
This supercoupe hits the sweet spot between luxury sedan and sports car, with a 5.0-liter V8 engine, 468 horsepower and an edgy but sophisticated design, from the undulating front grille to the caramel-leather interior.
Lincoln Navigator Concept Car
It makes complete sense, generationally, that dad cars should take cues from Back to the Future; unfortunately the gull-wing doors on this sprawling, luxurious prototype probably won’t make it to market.
Mercedes GLC Coupe
On the subject of dad cars: need one but suffering from SUV shame? This may be your model — it’s actually an SUV with a coupe silhouette.
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
This sedan is thoroughly informed by Alfa Romeo’s racing heritage — it has four selectable driving modes (one of which is Race) in addition to a 6-speed transmission, a 505-horsepower engine and the ability to hit 60 in 3.8 seconds.
Jaguar F Type SVR
Beauty and brawn: The 5.0-liter V8, 575-horsepower engine will take you from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds and up to 200 mph if you have the space.
The affordable Scion FR-S rebrands with a new name and a 2.0-liter, 205-horsepower engine.
Toyota Highlander SUV
For 2017, Toyota’s flagship SUV has a new V6, 3.5-liter engine. It’s also available as a hybrid.
Its initial run of 911 cars is already sold out, but at least dreaming is free.
The update to this acclaimed supercar is a hybrid — with a twin-turbocharged V6 powertrain and approximately 500 horsepower.
Volvo makes a big bid to enter the luxury category, with a turbocharged 250-horsepower engine and a buttery leather-and-wood interior.
Mercedes C63 Cabriolet
This classy sports car/sedan hybrid offers a 4.0-liter engine, 563 horsepower and a luxe interior.
Audi R8 Spyder
The convertible version of the much-acclaimed R8 has a 4.2-liter, 430-horsepower V8 engine and the ability to hit 60 in 4.6 seconds.
Infiniti’s tried-and-true crossover maintains its 325-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine and seven-speed automatic transmission, adding a Limited model with fancy open-pore wood trim on the interior.
This new luxury midsize crossover has plenty of passenger and cargo space, and doesn’t hurt for style either.
Toyota Prius Prime
Long the head of the plug-in hybrid class, the Prius now has a new, double-capacity battery, which means a 22-mile electric driving range and 120+ MPGe fuel efficiency.
Mercedes AMG E43 sedan
The new version of Nissan’s sports car comes with 565 horsepower — more horseys than any standard car in its class. It also boasts a more aerodynamic chassis and upgraded leather interior. Nissan hopes it’ll compete against the Porsche 911, Corvette and BMW M6.
This Dutch supercar brand unveiled this beautiful jet-inspired model, which has a 525-horsepower V8 engine and a 6-speed transmission.
Maserati’s first SUV has a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission and a starting price of $78,400.
