There is no better place to research your next new car than the New York Auto Show. For more than a century New Yorkers have visited the show in the millions to experience everything that the automobile industry has to offer and to get a glimpse into the future. It’s the one place where the information is comprehensive and engaging and where new technology can be explained and explored freely.
From the beginning, when the first New York Auto Show opened in November 1900 at the original Madison Square Garden, the annual exhibition of automobiles, and the pageantry they create, has been a hallmark of the industry.
For 123 years, the New York Auto Show has given the world a glimpse into the future. Here, we take a journey back in time to celebrate and enjoy many of the notable moments that have occurred along the way.

Press Conference Schedule
2024 Kia EV9 EV
The all-new, large three-row EV9 electric SUV was first previewed by an EV9 concept at the 2021 L.A. auto show. The introduction of the production version confirms that Kia kept many of the EV9 concept's design details.
Expect a tiered range offering, with base models offering something like 250 miles of range and top-spec models offering up 300 or more miles. We expect Kia EV9 prices to start around $55,000. For reference, the smaller Kia EV6 now starts at around $49,000.
All signs point to the EV9 going on sale toward the end of 2023, likely as a 2024 model.
2024 Hyundai Kona / Kona EV
Hyundai’s 2024 Kona compact SUV has been redesigned with the EV version in mind and can travel a European WLTP-estimated 304 miles on one charge.
The previous 2023 model Kona had a similarly sized 64 kWh battery (long range) with a European WLTP range of 301 miles (484 km). The US Environmental Protection Agency’s range estimates are generally more conservative than the WLTP; the agency rated the 2023 Kona EV’s range at 258 miles on a single charge, for example.
The all-electric Kona runs on a 400V platform that doesn’t match the company’s 800V E-GMP platform on the Ioniq 5 and 6, as well as Kia’s EV6 and upcoming EV9 vehicles.
2024 Hyundai Sonata / Sonata Hybrid
The revised Sonata features new front and rear end designs and a revamped interior. Hyundai refers to the new design language as 'Sensuous Sportiness'. A "seamless horizon lamp" greatly alters the front end. The standard Sonata and N-Line both look crisp and taut, with headlights seated in black inserts fading into the overall fascia design. They're told apart by slightly different grille mesh and a bit more black trim on the racy model.
Out back, a reshaped trunk opening and straight lines create a more technical stance, accentuated by new "H-lamp" vertical taillamps, connected by a full-width light bar. The rounded outlines in the current car's lower rear bumper have been sharpened into muffler-like shapes on the standard trim, cut out to fit quad pipes on the N-Line. That N-Line also gets a slightly more aggressive decklid spoiler plus a new set of 19-inch wheels.
The overhauled cabin no longer sports a separate gauge cluster and infotainment screen - instead, these have been merged into a single curved display for the first time in a Hyundai vehicle. There's a 12.3-inch screen for the driver and another of the same size for infotainment. A full-length vent separates the center screen from the lower console. Designers moved the gear selector to the steering column, opening up the center tunnel area for a longer armrest and more storage beneath a richer-looking set of HVAC controls.
Hyundai says there will be a trio of engines in the new lineup, a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder, a turbocharged version of that 2.5, and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder hybrid. At the moment, those engines all serve the current car. The 2.5-liter NA four makes 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque in the standard Sonata. The turbo 2.5 produces 290 hp and 311 lb-ft for its sole use case, the Sonata N-Line. The 2.0-liter NA four in the hybrid makes 151 hp and 139 lb-ft. by itself and is aided by an electric motor contributing 51 horsepower and 151 lb-ft. Hyundai didn't share outputs for the coming range but did say the hybrid would be equipped with paddle shifters.
Tech additions include over-the-air update support for vehicle systems, a Digital Key 2 that can lock and unlock the vehicle from a smartphone or smartwatch, a better Bose 12-speaker premium audio system with "CenterPoint 360 technology," and a power trunk. A Remote Smart Parking Assist allows the driver to park the Sonata in a tight spot while standing outside the car, using the key. Comfort has been boosted with better NVH-fighting measures like refined body reinforcement and new material for the steering wheel.
