2018 New York Auto Show: What You Missed

Quoth Huey Lewis (of the News fame): "New York, New York is everything they say and no place that I'd rather be." Truer words could scarcely have been spoken in reference to the last major auto exhibition of the 2018 season: Automakers, quite unexpectedly, held back some of their biggest new-model debuts, either in quality or in quantity, to go out on a high note at the 2018 New York International Auto Show — and Cars.com's team of automotive journalists was there to ford the flood.

Some of the most exciting unveilings weren't necessarily from the most exciting cars, but instead from 2019 incarnations of top-selling nameplates like the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester and Hyundai Santa Fe SUVs, Nissan Altima sedan and even a sporty-looking hatchback version of the Toyota Corolla.

All-new models were well-represented, too, with high-profile bows by the 2019 Cadillac XT4 and Lexus UX SUVs, Genesis G70 sedan — and the pretty fantastic Lincoln Aviator SUV, technically not a production vehicle but very close to being in its final form.

High-performance variants of luxury models were also plentiful in the 2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport, Bugatti Chiron Sport, Jaguar F-Pace SVR and Audi RS 5 Sportback — along with a massive Mercedes-Benz dump that included (but was not limited to), the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT four-door coupe, and the AMG C63 and C63 S.

If the show was short on anything, it did feel like it was lacking a quantity of cool concept cars relative to the volume of debuts. But for auto-show visitors who prefer to look to the future of driving, Volkswagen brought along its Atlas Cross Sport concept (a sporty two-row version of the three-row Atlas) and Atlas Tanoak pickup truck; Mini, its Electric Concept and Classic Mini Electric concept; and the stunning, nigh show-stopping Genesis Essentia (seriously, you've just gotta see this thing).

With the full-on media onslaught winding down, the show opens to the public on Friday at Midtown Manhattan's Javits Center. If you're in the Big Apple for the next week or so, you should definitely check it out, but plan on spending some time — there's a lot to see.
