2015ChevroletCorvetteZ06Convertible

Let's not get too technical here: What you really need to know about the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible is that it's the latest even-higher-performance version of the beloved supercar — without a top. So unless you have to worry about your new 'do getting destroyed in the wind or your toupee flying off and sticking to the windshield of the car eating your dust, you'll likely think that's pretty sweet.

The Z06 convertible is now making its debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. There, visitors can check out how Chevrolet moved some things around to accommodate the droptop, as well as admire the new chassis, which the automaker says is rigid enough to stand up to performance driving but light enough to keep weight in check.

2015 BMW 435i Gran Coupe Photo Gallery (24 Photos)

2015BMW435iGranCoupe

What's in a name? Well, if you're referring to the 2015 BMW 435i Gran Coupe, it means a four-door luxury car that goes by the name of a two-door without much explanation as to why. As Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman — clearly perplexed by this latest addition to the BMW variant inundation — previously described it, the 435i Gran Coupe is basically the 4 Series coupe with a stretched and minimally raised roofline — oh, plus a new name.

If you're going to be in the Big Apple between Friday and April 27 and want to sort out the BMW naming-convention confusion for yourself, the 435i Gran Coupe is making its debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show.

2015 Nissan Murano: Up Close

MuranoUC2

Nissan's Murano has always been a bit weird. While most SUVs have morphed into a common look across manufacturers, the Murano always did its own thing. Now Nissan has updated the Murano, giving it its first true complete redesign, and the look is just as wild as ever.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

At first glance, one might think that the 2015 Murano is almost overstyled, with lines, creases, folds, streaks, fins and slats from bumper to rump. The resemblance to Nissan's Resonance concept car is strong, but it works.

2015NissanMurano

More often than not, when a concept car moves to production, little of the flashiness and daring design that made it an eye-catcher in the first place actually make it to the dealer showroom. That's not the case with the 2015 Nissan Murano, now making a spectacle of itself at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. The new Murano's prototype, the Resonance concept, introduced the crossover's bold exterior styling back in January at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Surprisingly, much of that design translates to the production version, notably the "floating" roof element, boomerang-style headlights, kooky LED taillights and overall aerodynamic shape. Meanwhile, the forward-looking interior adopts an "upscale social lounge" design, says Nissan.

2015 Jeep Renegade: Up Close

RenegadeUC1

Few topics get automotive enthusiasts riled up like a discussion of the future of the Jeep brand. Should they remain true to their boxy, off-road military origins with products like the Wrangler, or go more on-road friendly with swoopy, daring designs like the new Cherokee? Jeep itself seems conflicted, giving us a range of styles and capabilities to choose from, but the brand's global push in the next couple of years will be with this model, the 2015 Jeep Renegade. It debuted at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show and appears this week at the 2014 New York International Auto Show.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

It's a mix of both worlds — built on a platform shared with a tiny Fiat crossover, the Renegade did not start life as an off-roader. But you wouldn't necessarily know that from looking at it — this is a traditional Jeep look, with boxy upright styling, round headlamps, the iconic seven-bar grille up front and square taillights out back.

2015 BMW X4 Photo Gallery (26 Photos)

Has it been a bit tough to keep up with all of BMW's new models and body styles lately? Don't worry, it's not just you. The many proliferations of the luxury automaker's vehicles seem to multiply faster than a colony of rabbits in spring. One of the latest additions to its lineup is the 2015 X4 "sports activity coupe," a smaller version of the X6 crossover.

The X4 is built off the same platform as the 3 Series and X3, and resembles those models from the front with large air intake openings and a similar headlight design. From the side, it follows the X6's silhouette, with a sleek and sloping roofline.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Video

For serious-but-accessible track driving, Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek gives an A to the Z/28. On his way to the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Bruzek tracked down the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 at the Monticello Motor Club and took the iconic muscle car's race-ready variant for a few turns, dubbing it the "ultimate track-car experience." Watch the action as a helmeted Bruzek demonstrates the Camaro's capabilities to the roaring soundtrack of its 505-horsepower, 7.0-liter V-8.

2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe Photo Gallery (33 Photos)

2015MercedesBenzS63AMGCoupe

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG coupe, the track-tuned version of the "regular" S-Class Coupe, is like a sequel to a Reagan-era action movie: more of what excited people about the original, but amped up to the extreme. Luxury-performance die-hards can get in on the action later this week at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, where the S63 AMG coupe was unveiled today.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

What onlookers will see outside is not dissimilar to the S-Class Coupe, save for additional air-cooling grilles, side sills and a rear diffuser, along with larger wheels and AMG badging. Its inside is also amped up with unique graphics and fonts on the displays, exclusive Nappa leather sport seats, a three-spoke sport steering wheel and more AMG badging. Under the hood, however, drivers will find quite a difference in the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 — mainly in the form of 577 horsepower and 664 pounds-feet of torque, propelling the coupe from zero to 60 mph in an exhilarating 3.9 seconds.
