2018 New York motor show preview
After a vintage year at Geneva, it’s New York’s turn to host the motor industry and world’s motoring press for more big reveals
The Big Apple show is traditionally SUV and truck-friendly, although sports cars are also big favourites. Take a look at a selection of cars that are expected to make their debuts below.
2018 New York motor show: the cars
Cadillac will reveal a compact SUV called the XT4 in New York and will be hoping for a boost in sales by tapping into the world’s fastest growing car segment.
We won’t get this luxury saloon in the UK, but Kia’s top American model often previews what’s to come elsewhere around the world.
The C-Class has just been revealed in facelifted form at Geneva, so New York will be the setting for the reveal of the tweaked coupé and convertible variants…
…as well as the stonking, twin-turbo V8-engined C63. The current model has 469bhp, so expect even more for this latest version.
Subaru’s new Forester SUV will be unveiled in New York, before being followed by a hybrid variant at the Beijing motor show on 25 April.
Toyota has already begun the launch campaign for the new RAV4, which can mean only one thing – it’s only days from being revealed. It’s expected to follow the Auris in ditching diesel engines, with a punchy 2.0-litre hybrid replacing the oil-burner.
