New York International Auto Show: five debuts

North America’s largest car show kicked off on April 3, and gave visitors a glimpse of a number of new vehicles. Here are some of the big reveals of the New York Auto Show 2015 so far:

 

Porsche Boxster Spyder

The new Porsche Boxster Spyder will be powered by a 3.8-liter flat six-cylinder, boasting 380ps, and will sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 290km/h. Overall fuel consumption on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be 9.9l/100km.

Toyota Rav 4 Hybrid

Following 20 years after the debut of the original Rav 4, Toyota has brought hybrid technology to its compact SUV. It is powered by a 2.5-liter petrol engine and an electric motor, with an additional e-motor powering the rear axle during electronic all-wheel drive.

Kia Optima

Kia’s all-new mid-size saloon debuted in New York, and will be available with a choice of three engine options – including a new 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, partnered with a 7-speed DCT, which generates 180ps at 5,500rpm and 264Nm at 1,500rpm.

Lexus RX

The fourth generation of Lexus’s luxury SUV, the RX, debuted to crowds in New York. The new model will be available with an upgraded 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine, matched to an 8-speed automatic transmission, producing 304ps. A hybrid powertrain, featuring a 3.5-liter Atkinson cycle V6, will feature a total system output of approximately 300ps.

Jaguar XF

JLR chose the New York Auto Show to unveil the new X. The lighter, more efficient new Jaguar XF will be offered with a range of powertrain options, starting with the 163ps 2-liter Ingenium diesel, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The XF will also be offered with a 180ps 2-liter diesel, and a rear wheel-drive 300ps 3-liter V6 diesel.
