While crossovers stole the spotlight at this year’s New York International Auto Show, there were plenty of other options, from luxury sedans to sports cars. Did your favorite make our list?
The 2020 Subaru Outback will finally get a turbocharged engine, which will improve its performance at higher altitudes with thinner air. The new Onyx Edition XT trim will get that turbo as well as water-repellent upholstery and a full-size spare tire. The 2020 Toyota Highlander should be ideal for weekend warriors thanks to its additional 2.36 inches of length, which translate into more cargo space and second-row legroom. It’s also available as a hybrid, which will have a 17-percent improvement in fuel economy compared to the previous generation. The 2020 Ford Escape caught our attention with its new grille and its new available engine choices, including a more powerful 2.0-liter 4-cylinder and a plug-in hybrid version that should arrive later this year.
The redesigned 2020 Hyundai Sonata made a splash thanks to its new headlights and new tech. A 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment screen will be available along with its Digital Key app, which connects with an Android smartphone and the Hyundai Blue Link app to remotely lock, unlock, and start the car. The 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback also gets plenty of tech, with a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, keyless entry, and optional navigation, as well as additional sound insulation to quiet the interior.
The 2020 Hyundai Venue also made its debut at the 2019 NYIAS. It features a squared-off design with several color options and a manual transmission standard. It also will come full of standard features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, multiple driving modes, and safety features like blind-spot monitoring and lane-keep assist. The 2020 Nissan Versa, which is expected to continue as one of America’s most affordable new sedans, should pack plenty of value with up to 40 mpg on the highway and safety features like lane-departure warning and automatic emergency braking.
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair, which debuted at NYIAS, is the compact-crossover replacement for the MKC. It will offer two different turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, a 2.0-liter unit that puts out 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque and a 2.3-liter unit that makes 280 hp and 310 lb-ft. It also will offer a choice of three different two-tone interiors and the option of all-wheel drive (AWD). The 2020 Cadillac CT5, another debut, will include luxe touches like massaging and heated front seats, along with features like remote start and a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment screen.
