The show you wait for every year has finally arrived! The 2016 New York International Auto Show has sprung itself this spring, with an enormous collection of upcoming vehicles and designs, NYIAS 2016 gives us a far-reaching vision into the future. Almost 1,000 vehicles, across four floors of the Jacob Javits Convention Center, will be on display for show-goers and press alike. The NYIAS, which has been featuring cars since 1900, is North America’s first and largest attended auto show, and this year, it’s not holding anything back.
What You Will See:
Hyundai will be showing off their new Hyundai Ioniq, which will be the first nameplate from any manufacturer that offers 3 different electric powertrain options. The choices are between a plug-in hybrid, a traditional gasoline-electric hybrid, or an all-electric powertrain.
Acura will be introducing their 2017 MDX crossover, which has been stated to be a solid refresh of its previous incarnation. With both the interior and exterior changes to the already evolved look of the MDX, it’s definitely a vehicle you won’t want to miss at the show this year.
Though seeing the Buick Encore’s twin recently at the Geneva Motor Show, the 2017 Buick Encore will be debuting itself at the NYIAS. Based off of what we have seen of its twin, the Encore should have some surprising updates to the exterior, but we expect most of the changes to be seen inside. Still, this makes it one of the main GM luxury-crossovers you will want to check out while at the show.
The 2017 Nissan GT-R will be appearing at the show. With all the updates and improvements made to the super-coupe being featured throughout the show, it will only solidify our understanding on why the GT-R is Nissan’s teacher’s pet.
Another debut at the NYIAS this year, will be Mitsubishi’s 2017 Outlander PHEV. This crossover will feature some of Mitsubishi’s new EV/CUV strategy. Along with the Outlander PHEV, the Mirage G4 sedan will be appearing as well.

The show will be happening on Friday, March 25th through Sunday, April 3rd. The show will be open for public access on Mondays-Saturdays from 10am to 10pm and on Sundays from 10am-7pm.

How You Will Enjoy It:
The NYIAS will be providing a look into the automotive industry that few other shows give. Don’t miss out on this year’s event and be sure to check out the hundreds of design debuts appearing there. Put on comfortable walking shoes and take your time walking through the exhibits, reading promotional materials and technical specifications, and take plenty of photos. Don’t forget to check out vehicle and equipment demonstrations and test drives! Plan to spend the whole day, if you can. Pro Tip: If available for your camera, a polarizing filter works wonders removing the most offensive reflections from your favorite vehicle and component shots.
