2006 New York Auto Show

2006 New York Auto Show

Coming on the heels of larger shows in Detroit and Geneva, it may seem like car makers won't have much to show in New York, but this year's list of debuts looks impressive. Scion has a new sport coupe concept dubbed Fuse, which will be interesting to see for Scion's sometimes radical styling and where it fits in relation to the tC. Scion will also be showing a special edition, Version 2.0 tC. Lexus will be showing off the 2008 LS 600h, a big luxury hybrid sedan. Acura's bringing a concept version of the MDX, which should be the basis for this car's much-needed update. Mitsubishi will introduce its Outlander SUV to the U.S. market at the show, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it will be fitted out. Mazda's introducing a CX-9, a presumably larger version of the CX-7 it showed at Detroit earlier this year. Suzuki brings its SX-4, which I covered in Geneva, to the States. This small SUV looked pretty impressive, and it will be good to see it here. Audi will be showing off a face-lifted 2007 A4 and S4, two cars that stay near the leading edge on technology. And there's a possibility of an Audi A8 and a Saab hybrid. We will be reporting from the show April 12 through the 14th during the press preview. The New York Auto Show is open to the public from April 14th through the 23rd.
