Volkswagen will introduce its 2015 Golf at the upcoming New York International Auto Show in late March. Counting TDI clean diesel, GTI and TSI models in the lineup, VW has cut weight and added mpg to the Golf for 2015.
For a fast tour of last year’s New York Auto Show, watch the video clip below, which literally walks us through the Javits Center for a 2-minute highlights reel. New York hosts what is arguably (and the point is argued!) the largest auto show on earth. Even so, other events outshine NY in terms of industry gravitas and new model debuts. The Big Apple overwhelms in sheer statistics, with almost a million square feet of show space and at least a thousand vehicles populating the hall. The NYIAS is standing-room-only each day that it is open to the public. Many of the world’s larger automakers save at least one debut or major announcement for New York so there are always a few April surprises for auto enthusiasts.
Opening on March 29 and running through April 7, the 2013 New York International Auto Show is marking its 113th anniversary this year. Billed as the nation’s first and largest such event, NYIAS offers over 900,000 square feet of floor space packed with the newest in automotive technology, safety and style. The 2013 show will host exhibits of more than 1,000 vehicles. Held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, NYIAS hours are 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. every day except Sundays, when the event closes at 7 p.m. Though the doors officially open on Saturday, Mar. 30, there is a sneak preview session on Friday, Mar. 29. The media preview days are Mar. 27 and 28.
