More than a dozen major debuts already have been announced, with some surprises still to come. The slate is heavy on luxury vehicles, sports cars and luxury sports cars.
Dominating the luxury and/or performance roster are the 2017 Acura MDX SUV; Genesis Sports Sedan Concept; 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 SUV, AMG E43 sedan and CLA-Class sedan; 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S convertibles, and Macan SUV. But the Nissan GT-R and Toyota 86 should bring plenty to the performance table as well.
Not everything is for the speedy and spendthrifty. The environmentally conscious will want to clap an eye on the Ioniq, an all-new-for-2017 trio of hybrid-electric cars from Hyundai. The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic, Subaru Impreza and Toyota Highlander round out the more down-to-earth debuts.
