The 2018 New York International Auto Show is where you can kick the tires of 2018 model cars and trucks and preview many 2019 models. It’s also where you can learn about new technology, test drive new vehicles on an outdoor off-road track, see concepts that show the road to the future, and vintage vehicles that inspired today’s models.
This year’s big show is Friday, March 30 to Sunday, April 8, 2018, at the Javits Center, with nearly 1,000 vehicles on display. NYIAS (shorthand for New York International Auto Show) attracts more than one million visitors each year.
Tickets are $17 for adults, $7 for kids to age 12. Kids to age 2 are FREE.
Buy your tickets online. It won’t save you money, but it will save you time waiting on line to purchase tickets. Also expect airline-like security.
This year promises to be another great display of fuel efficient and luxury cars and trucks, with more than 60 world premiere and North American premier vehicles. They include the global debut of the all-new Nissan Altima family sedan (the sketch shown here), and the North American debuts of the brand-new Cadillac XT4 luxury compact SUV, and the 2019 BMW X4 M40i M Performance SUV.
New York City’s iconic 118-year-old automobile event is one of the oldest and largest auto shows in the world.
The NY Auto Show 2018 poster was inspired by the rapid acceleration of automobile technology, and spotlights a sleek Koenigsegg Regera hybrid powering up the Auto Show logo.
The poster design tells the story that the auto industry is moving forward, fast, explains Auto Show Chairman John LaSorsa.
Don’t ask how much the car costs, because it has too many zeros after the dollar sign.
It’s an indication that even top-dollar manufacturers are moving – or already have moved – into the hybrid and all-electric space, including Porsche and Jaguar. Even Bentley just introduced its first hybrid, the plug-in Bentayga Hybrid SUV, at the Geneva Auto Show.
NYC on the Cheap editor Evelyn Kanter will be at the press previews Wednesday and Thursday before the show opens to the public on Friday.
