After the annual supercar festival that was the Geneva Motor Show, the New York International Auto Show is a much more laid-back affair with more of a focus on cars for everyday life.

But don’t you worry. There’s still plenty of automotive hotness to go around.

For over 115 years, the New York Auto Show has been one of the largest car shows in the US and a place for carmakers to see and be seen.

This year, we are expecting major reveals for brands such as Acura, Audi, Cadillac, Ford, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Toyota, and Volkswagen.

The 2018 New York Auto Show will be open to the public from March 30 to April 8 at the Javits Center.

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the coolest and most important cars we expect to see at this year’s show:


Usually, the glitz and glamour of supercars and luxury cars soak up all of the attention at auto shows. But this year, the New York Auto Show will be dominated by mainstream, mass-market brands. This includes the introduction of a new five-seat, mid-size crossover SUV from Volkswagen. It’s based on the brand’s existing seven-seat Atlas SUV.
