Detroit Auto Show 2017: Roadshow editors choose their favorites
Welcome to Detroit in the show floor of the 27th King North American International Auto Show.
I'm standing in front of our booth where we've been live streaming all the unveils, all the new models, shown here for the first time.
We're gonna take you on a quick tour to some of our favorites.
My pick for best in show, Volkswagen's [INAUDIBLE] Bug concept.
I don't like the name, I do love the car.
It's all wheel drive, fully autonomous and Volkswagen could use a little good will right now.
This is the way to do it.
My car of the show well that's pretty easy.
The Mercedes AMG GTC.
500 horse power, fully conserver charged V8 making an awesome noise and an epic drive but I also want to put a shout in for my favorite autonomous car, the one and only Lightning McQueen.
My pick of the show is the 2018 Lexus LS500.
It packs a new 450 horsepower twin turbo V6, and the world's largest 24 inch head up display.
Plus, it's got the stunning good looks based on the LC sport coupe.
I honestly did not expect it to turn out looking this good.
My pick of the show is the Kia Stinger.
Not only does it look good, but it was developed under the watchful eye of Albert Bierman of BMW fame.
So it should be a great driver with an available twin turbo V6 engine with 365 horsepower.
My pick of the show is the Volvo V9
The wagon version of the F90 which was one of my favorite cars last year, it's long, it's low, it's absolutely beautiful, the interior is amazing.
I really, really want one in my driveway.
My pick of the year is the 2018 Toyota Camry.
Yes I know i surprised even myself.
But hey it looks pretty good and it's got a regular automatic, not a CBT.
Honda is frankly freakishly good at innovating for families.
The new Odyssey has a surveillance camera in the roof to watch whosoever in the second and third row.
A PA system to talk back and forth with them.
And a kid's NAV system in the second row, to end are we there yet.
My pick of the show wasn't actually here at the show, but unveiled just a couple of blocks down the road.
Was the Bentley Continental GT Supersport.
Lighter, faster, more aggressive, and still full of that great British luxury.
I just can't wait to go for a spin.
My favorite car from the 2017 Detroit Auto Show is the Nissan Vmotion 2.0 Concept.
It is a techie's dream.
Bose near-field speakers communicate pertinent information to just the driver, while the seats and wood trim make it one of the fanciest Nissan's I've ever seen.
Now let's just hope the design actually makes it to production.
That's all from here in Detroit.
We'll see you in a few months, in Geneva.
