New York 2014 motor show

New York 2014 Live performance: It exists only as a teaser image at the moment, but Hyundai will show the real-deal Sonata at New York.

Spring in the air and in the step of New York's big motoring event

IT MIGHT not be able to trump Detroit as America’s biggest, but the New York International Auto Show is at least a little warmer, and with spring in the air the East-coast car bonanza previews a raft of forthcoming summer releases.

America loves a high-riding SUV and this year BMW was the first to announce an unveiling of one of its crossover offerings - the X4 - but many more manufacturers will surely follow suit over the coming weeks.

The nation’s other love-affair is of course with the venerable V8, but in the face of ever tightening emissions laws all eyes will be on the latest high-powered, high-performance yet frugal newcomers.
