This year, the hometown of the Heat is really bringing the heat. Several automakers — including Genesis, Nissan, Ram and Toyota — are planning announcements on Nov. 1 ahead of the show’s opening, potentially unveiling some redesigned or refreshed cars, trucks and SUVs. It all kicks off Friday and runs through Nov. 10 at the newly renovated Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive. Hours are 5-11 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Nov. 2-3; 2-11 p.m. weekdays; 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Nov. 9; and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 10.

General admission is $15 for visitors age 13 or older, $6 for children ages 6-12, and free admission for children age 5 or younger. Visit the show’s website for more info and to buy tickets. Parking starts at $2 per hour, with shuttle service from all Miami Beach public parking garages to the show entrance.

Shopping for your next car in the Magic City (or perhaps just looking to escape the heat and humidity in a big air-conditioned space)? Here are five things you can’t miss at the 2019 Miami International Auto Show:

1. 2020 Toyota Highlander

The fully redesigned 2020 Toyota Highlander, which debuted at the 2019 New York International Auto Show back in April, will no doubt be among the most sought-after cars at the show this year. Sitting on a new global platform, the Highlander is nicer on the inside, more fuel-efficient and about 2.4 inches longer than its predecessor. Take your pick of the gas-powered model — with a 295-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 under the hood — or the new-generation hybrid powertrain. The hybrid model comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 comes standard in the Highlander, with two new safety systems included: Lane Tracing Assist and Road Sign Assist.

The gas version of the Highlander will hit dealerships in December, while the hybrid version will be available in February 2020.
