What we liked best at the 2016 New York auto showWith the New York auto show receding into our rearview, Roadshow's editors pick their favorite sports cars and concepts unveiled at the show.
[MUSIC] Welcome to the show floor of the 2016 New York International Auto-Show. We're wrapping up our coverage, but before we head home, We want to give you a quick tour of some of our favorites. It used to be the Scion FRS, but I like it better as the Toyota AE86. It's still got the same great handling, the same great looks, not too powerful, but it's so fun. It's my favorite Favorite care of the New York Auto Show. My pick for this show, it'd be Red Bull's global rally cross Honda Civic Coupe. It's got over 600 horsepower, does 0 to 60 in under 2 seconds and it's built to handle a 70 foot jump of GRC racing. Now it doesn't have a whole lot in common under the skin with the rest of the Civics in this group, but that's just a minor detail. My favorite car in the show is the Lincoln Navigator concept. It's a positively ludicrous leviathan loaded in features that have no basis in reality like goldwing doors and three step running boards. But we're bound for a new Navi based on the new F-150 chasse and the styling is far more contemporary than it used to be so there's plenty of promise underneath all that weird stuff. No surprise here. My pick for best in show, the Mazda MX5 Miata RS. For a car that's basically a slightly modified version of an existing body style, it's received a shocking amount of attention and acclaim here in New York, thanks largely to its design flair and sense of occasion. Its retractable fast back? Well, it's an olive branch to those who've been waiting for years for a coupe version, since it has a lot of the same design feel. I'm concerned its weight is going to slightly dull its driving dynamics, and the buttresses, they may curb its open-air feeling. But until I drive it, I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt, because it's stunning. And last but not least is my pick of the show, the 2017 Nissan GCR. Okay, they haven't changed too much. The front end's a little bit swoopier. A little bit more room for air to get in all those radiators but they have finally updated that interior to make it a little bit less dated and perhaps most importantly it matches my tie. Its my peak of this show from the 2016 New York and Nasa auto show. I hope you've enjoyed our show, We'll see you in Paris in a few months time. [MUSIC]
