Today, we wrap up our coverage of the 2019 New York Auto Show, and take a look at a range of other vehicles that are making their world or stateside debut in The Big Apple.
2020 Audi R8
The updated 2020 Audi R8 is making its stateside debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show with a slightly new design and performance enhancements that make it a 200+ mph car across the board. The $169,900 Audi R8 V10 Coupe now makes 562 horsepower (30 over the outgoing model) allowing it to go from zero-to-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, and hit a top speed of 201 mph. The $195,900 Audi R8 V10 Performance Coupe (previously known as the V10 Plus), continues to make 602horsepower allowing it to hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph. Both R8 Spyder models also hit a top speed of 200-plus mph. Now, you just have to find a place where you can do drive that fast!
2020 Audi e-tron
Audi is showcasing its first production electric-vehicle at the 2019 New York Auto Show with the Audi e-tron SUV. The mid-size Audi e-tron SUV has an EPA-estimated range of 204 miles, which is supported by the fastest charging in its class. Using a 150 kW fast charger, the Audi e-tron will give you an estimated 54 miles in just ten minutes or 163 miles in just 30 minutes. Audi has also teamed up with Amazon Home Services to provide Level 2 charging systems consisting of a 240 volt, NEMA 14-50 outlet, allowing the e-tron to be fully charged in 9 hours. Power comes from a 95 kWh total battery capacity allowing for a total of 355 horsepower or 402 horsepower with Boost Mode engaged. The zero-to-60 sprint takes just 5.5 seconds. Prices start at $74,800 before the $7,500 federal tax credit.
2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition
Making its debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show, the 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition will be available later this summer starting at $50,000. Handcrafted in the Performance Manufacturing Center – the same place where the NSX is produced, the Acura TLX PMC Edition gets some unique features combined with the A-Spec line.
TLX PMC exclusive features include a Valencia Red Pearl nano paint job (which actually takes 5-long days to get done), black 19-inch five-spoke wheels, black roof panel, black door handles, black diamond pentagon grille, dual four-inch black chrome exhaust finishers, black Milano leather seats with Alcantara trim, perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching, red stitching and much more. Unfortunately, no powertrain upgrades are made. Think of this is Lincoln’s Black Label upgrades but a bit more on the sporty side.
Also making its debut alongside the TLX PMC Edition is the MDX PMC Edition Prototype which will also be available in the near future.
2020 Jaguar XE
The 2020 Jaguar XE is making its stateside debut here at the 2019 New York Auto Show and besides a more assertive and animated exterior design, there are also a range of upgrades on the inside. The 2020 Jaguar XE will be available in three trims and two engine choices. The base Jaguar XE S (P250) RWD will start at $39,900 and is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo making 247 horsepower. The Jaguar XE S AWD will carry the same engine with prices starting at $41,900.
For those that want more performance, Jaguar will offer the XE R-Dynamic S (P300) AWD for $46,295. Power for the XE R-Dynamic S also comes from the same engine but output has been increased to 296 horsepower allowing for a zero-to-60 mph time of 5.4 seconds.
2020 Subaru Outback
Subaru by far had the best display at the 2019 New York Auto Show which honored the brand’s support of the national parks and partnership with the National Park Foundation. What was the reason for all this? The debut of the 6th generation 2020 Subaru Outback.
Being pitched as the safest and most capable Outback ever, the 2020 model you see here debuts a new XT model with 260-horsepower 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer engine. All 2020 Subaru Outback models come standard with the brand’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology with Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control and new Lane Centering. There is also a new 11.6-inch touchscreen display and a new hands-free power liftgate.
Sales of the 2020 Subaru Outback will start this fall. Prices will be announced closer to launch.
2020 Hyundai Venue
This is the 2020 Hyundai Venue, a new addition to Hyundai’s total of seven SUVs and CUVs in the United States. Why and what’s the reason for another crossover? Well, besides the fact that Americans seem to love their crossovers, Hyundai felt there was more room in its lineup for an A-segment model under the Kona.
The 2020 Hyundai Venue is five inches shorter than the Kona and takes on the likes of the Nissan Kicks and Toyota CH-R. The Venue is being pitched as a more youthful and fun car with some interesting features for a vehicle in this price segment. Starting at just under $20,000, each Hyundai Venue trim comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen display that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, 60/40 split-folding rear seat, and a range of driver assist feature like forward-collision warning, rearview camera, lane-keeping assist, and driver-fatigue warning.
Power for the 2020 Hyundai Venue comes from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine mated to either a six-speed manual or CVT transmission. Hyundai says that the Venue will do about 33 mpg combined.
