Luxury and practicality on display at New York Auto Show

- Since 1900, the New York International Auto Show has brought the latest vehicles to the Big Apple. This year's show features a thousand vehicles on a million square feet of show space.

This year there are some standout trends, according to Chris Duke, a paid General Motors spokesperson and host of Motorz TV. He said vehicles are getting more safety features and infotainment.

The technological advancement extends across brands like Cadillac, which unveiled the new 2019 CT6 V-Sport sedan. Eric Angeloro, a Cadillac marketing manager, said the car is designed to give the driver a lot of control and be fun to drive.

And for those who prefer to be driven, the new 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom makes getting stuck in traffic enjoyable.

On the more practical end of the spectrum, the Toyota Sienna is new and improved. Toyota general manager Rick Lofaso said it is the only minivan with all-wheel drive. And it can be configured for 150 cubic feet of interior space.

For the new Mercedes-AMG GT four-door coupe, what is under the hood counts. Erkin Akbiyik of Mercedes-AMG said this "animal" of a car features a 630-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine.

The New York International Auto Show is at the Javits Center from March 30 through April 8, 2018.
