So, the experience of the New York Auto show 2012 show was in a word “Amazing”. I would say that each car manufacture brought their “A” game but there were a few that might have missed the mark a bit as well. My trip was highlighted with a “private tour”, very nice when you don’t want people all around you trying to get pictures and sitting in the car as well” along with learning more about the pricing and new technology that you will be seeing in the future from all manufactures. So, without further pause, I will let you in on my NY auto show 2012 experience.
First, I have to say the car manufacture that was most successful with people all over the cars was Hyundai. The cars that they are adding plus the sheer number of people that were requesting information were phenomenal and with some of the new additions to the Elantra and Sonata I believe it’s a company on the rise with the big three(Toyota, Ford, Honda). The New York Auto show 2012 would be incomplete with out the big three which I briefly talked about and the one that stands out the most is Honda. Honda has made a huge push in the area of design just looking at the pictures and their new hybrid technology as well. The paint on the cars were just outstanding compared to some manufactures eg Ford, Toyota( We saw pink and peach color cars not something I would drive, yes I realize it comes in other colors but when its an the NY auto show 2012 I feel its imperative to stick with red, more plain colors). So, all this NY auto show 2012 talks how about the big guns meaning the hybrids and luxury cars, oh, they were there so let’s get to them now.
It would not be the New York Auto show 2012 in my eyes with out the luxury cars. Bmw, Lexus, Porsche, Audi, Infinity and the rest were well represented. My only problem and concern regarding most of the cars in this NY auto show 2012 is that the cars were not available to be seated in except for a few. I do know the reasons behind it (simply asked someone) they don’t want our grubby hands all over it but it kind of kills the atmosphere when you in an international car show. One of the most impressive cars and continues to churn out more and more is Audi. Audi has really taken the luxury car market as their technology and features surpass most if not all cars in the field.
This year the big draw to the New York Auto show 2012 had to be the flying car. I happened to be looking at other cars before the line started to get filled but it was truly amazing to see a vehicle turn into a plane which kind of reminded me something I would see from the Jetsons. The NY auto show 2012 also had monster trucks, vendors on the top floor (some of them nice and some not) and of course what show would be complete without a ride on a new 2013 Jeep Cherokee that went over a rough course but the lines were an hour long so that was not really an option. One big change from this New York Auto show 2012 then from previous ones were that you could like the car or on to your facebook by their computer. I thought it was very smart advertising on the part of the car manufactures that not only they have likes by you but that they can contact you as well. So, where does this New York Auto show 2012 rank in comparison to other shows? Its hard to answer that since I have been a regular since 1998 and the technology from that NY auto show can’t compare but this one ranks on top as being one of the better ones. Now, how do you make next year’s experience better if you want to attend the NY auto show 2012 or later of course? If you’re a member of AAA or your going with a group you can get discounts on your tickets. I found that I like to get their before the huge crowd shows up so buying an early day pass is the way to go as I received them for free. Lastly, make sure that you bring plenty of memory for your camera as I almost ran out and had to use my phone for some of the pictures but nothing can beat the NY auto show 2012 and its an event you will never forgot.
