What to Expect at the 2014 New York Auto Show


For nearly as long as there have been automobiles, there have been auto shows. One of the oldest and most important is the New York International Auto Show. The Big Apple's exhibition started 114 years ago and bills itself as the longest-running auto show on the continent.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

The show returns for 2014 from April 18-27, with press- and dealer-only previews April 16-17, at New York's Jacob Javits Convention Center, 11th Avenue between 34th and 40th streets. Based on the debuts and notable appearances we already know about, it's shaping up to be quite a year of face-offs.

Perhaps most notable among these show-floor stare downs is between midsize best-sellers the 2015 Toyota Camry and 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Two Detroit automakers are also having their own compact-segment rivalry with the Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Focus both unveiling redesigns for the 2015 model year.

Throw in some jockeying for attention from small-car brands Mini and Fiat showing the new 2015 Countryman and updated 500, respectively; some sibling rivalry between the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger; and opulent one-upmanship between super-luxury brands Bentley and Rolls-Royce, and there looks to be enough competitive spirit to keep things lively in The City That Never Sleeps.

Auto-show hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays; the box office closes an hour before closing each day, and admittance is closed a half-hour before closing. Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for children (age 12 or younger; age 2 or younger get in free) and $13 each for groups of 20 or more. For more info, go to www.autoshowny.com.

Cars.com's Editorial team will be on-site in NYC to cover it all, as well as announcements leading up to the show, so keep checking back with Kicking Tires. In the meantime, here's what to expect:
