These product reveals, and the attention they receive from the media, get consumers excited about visiting the Show and checking out all the latest cars, trucks and crossovers for themselves.
So, from Genesis we expect and we have pretty clear that the star of Genesis showroom will be the all-new G80, which reaches its 3rd generation (codenamed as RG3). Will premiere the new Theta-3 & Lambda-3 engines.
From Kia side, it’s unclear which model are we going to see due to in our roadmap we don’t have any confirmation of a model, despite a concept car, that Kia could reveal at the NY Autoshow. The rumoured FCEV SUV in concept form could be for what we will place our bets. Next-gen Optima its so far from April reveal.
Hyundai looks like not confirmed yet their pressence at the show, despite we have a confirmation that they will showcase its next-gen Sonata (the 8th) at the Big Apple.
