6 New Luxury Cars Coming Via the New York Auto Show
While a new Camry or thrilling Mercedes may be groundbreaking in their own ways, Land Rover brought something truly unique to the New York Auto Show when it unveiled the Discovery Vision Concept on April 16. Showcasing technology that creates the illusion of a see-through hood, Land Rover’s concept SUV would be among the most luxurious and safest vehicles on the road.
Aside from the utilitarian Camry and Nissan Versa that made their debuts on the first day of the New York event, luxury vehicles dominated the first day of the show. Here are six rides that set the tone.
1. Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept
With its Discovery Vision Concept, Land Rover is introducing a vehicle with an “invisible” hood that shows the driver what’s beneath the wheels. That allows for clear views of what’s ahead, as well as what’s creating danger for the vehicle when backing up or stuck in a tight space. Special cameras placed in the front grille supply this groudbreaking visual effect.
Land Rover surprised the audience at the end of its presentation when company officials said this new concept was much more than a design whimsy. It will be called the “Discovery Sport” and make its official debut worldwide in 2015.
