2018 New York Auto Show: The Best Photos

New York Auto Show

A Virtual Tour of One of the Biggest Car Shows in the U.S.

Start spreading the news: New York put on a big auto show in 2018. Major redesigns of significant models abounded, from the Subaru Forester to the Toyota RAV4. A new Nissan Altima with significant tech upgrades debuted, as did Toyota’s new hatchback Corolla, which should appeal to urbanites looking for SUV versatility with easier-to-park dimensions.

Automakers also chose the New York Auto Show for several North American debuts. We saw the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe and Audi A6 in Geneva earlier this year, but in New York City we got to see their final U.S.-market engine lineups and specs.

Two major trends in the automotive industry – electrification and autonomous driving – were also on display in New York. Both were embodied in Jaguar’s all-electric I-Pace, which will challenge the Tesla Model X for electrically powered SUV supremacy. It will be the first luxury vehicle in Google’s Waymo driverless car test fleet.

On the more outrageous side of things, the Bugatti Chiron Sport makes its North American debut. The $3.26 million hypercar makes 1,500 horsepower from its 16-cylinder quad-turbocharged engine and has a top speed of 261 mph.

You may wonder why it’s worth it to following all of these trends – the new tech, new models, and outrageous concepts – at an auto show in another city. Well, these are the cars and technological innovations that will be showing up at your local dealer in the next year, two years, five years, and beyond. Knowing what’s on the horizon makes you a more informed consumer, helping you feel more confident when it’s time to make a new vehicle purchase.

With that in mind, check out our favorite sights from the 2018 New York Auto Show.
