There are many exciting aspects of visiting an auto show for fans of cars. These events take place around the world and each has its own unique format. However, it is usually a chance to see examples of classic cars, the latest automobile related innovations, and some new cars set to launch onto the market. The New York International Auto Show is no different as this year it is showing a whole range of new or revised cars. This event is taking place from March to April 8, 2018, and is held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. Here are five of the new cars that will make their debut at the New York International Auto Show this year.
Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe and Convertible
Mercedes-Benz has previously shown its C-Class compact car, but they have waited until the New York International Auto Show to unveil their coupe and convertible versions of the C-Class. These cars have had an aesthetic makeover and improvements have increased their power. They boast a turbocharged 2-liter 4-cylinder engine that has the capacity to produce 255 horsepower. This is an increase in horsepower of 14 from previous versions of the car. There is a Mercedes-AMG performance version of this car and this excels with a 3-liter v-6 engine. Up 23-horsepower from its predecessor, this car now produces 385 horsepower. In terms of exterior changes, the bumper has been redesigned and the car now has LED headlights and taillights.
Lincoln Aviator SUV
The Navigator SUV was a hit for the Lincoln division of Ford, but they have decided to bring back the Aviator name and produce a model in the next size down from the Navigator. So far, Lincoln has kept the details of this new car under wraps, so it will be exciting for fans of this car manufacturer to see what they have on offer. All they are willing to say right now is that they are focusing more on SUV and pickups in the future.
VW Arteon R-Line
One of the best new cars to keep an eye out for if you are planning on attending the event is the VW Arteon R-Line. This is the five-passenger version of VW’s successful Atlas SUV. Although not many details have yet surfaced about this four-door coupe, it is already being shown in a special edition. The aim of VW was to make this model look sportier. To achieve this, they have improved the spoiler, added a front bumper featuring gloss-black air intakes, and given the option of either 19-inch or 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The interior of the car has also been completed to a high standard. The Arteon R-Line has a turbocharged 2-liter engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Lexus RC F Sport Black Line Special Edition
Available in silver and black, Lexus has picked up on the car noir trend and have created this car with many black features. These include the brake calipers and black wheels. They have also features darkened chrome around the windows and on the grille instead of the traditional chrome. Not everything on the car s black though, as the interior features orange stitching as a contrast. Many of the specifications of this new limited-edition car will remain the same as the original Lexus RC F.
Ford Fusion Sedan
While this is not strictly speaking a new car, the 2019 model of the already existing Ford Fusion Sedan is getting some major upgrades this year. This will be revealed for the first time at the New York International Auto Show. Although the Fusion has already had significant upgrades in recent years, the new features predominantly revolve around safety and driving assistance. This model is adopting the safety features that come as standard on the Ford Co-Pilot 360. These include blind spot alerts, emergency braking, lane keeping, cross traffic alerts, automatic high beams, pedestrian detection, and a backup camera. It is not just the practical features of the car that are getting an update as the look of the car is also receiving an overhaul. Some of the visual changes that potential buyers of this vehicle can expect include covers for its bumpers, LED headlights, new grilles, and new fascias for both the front and the rear of the car.
