Whether you’re in the market for a new car, just thinking about getting a new car or want a fun day out with the family, the New York International Auto Show is the place to find everything you’re looking for and more all under one roof! On Thursday, I spent the day at the New York International Auto Show checking out the latest and greatest in the auto world before I headed to the #GirlsNightOutNYIAS party with SheBuysCars. I had a chance to check out some hot cars, I fell in love with a car I never expected then partied the night away with an amazing bunch of influencers. It was a long, but fun day and I learned so much! Whatever your reason for going, you definitely need to head to this year’s auto show to see everything they have to offer. You may even win a designer handbag (keep reading to find out how)!
Let me start off by saying this car show is HUGE! Once I checked in for the day and grabbed my media pass, I ended up by the Toyota display and it was definitely the way to kick off my auto show experience. I was captivated by this gorgeous car on display in front of me.
I love how chic and sporty it looked and when it rotated around, was completely shocked that I was looking at all-new 2018 Toyota Camry. Talk about a gorgeous car. I spent a good part of my day photographing and learning all about this beauty.
Toyota really upped the ante with the 2018 Toyota Camry. The sporty performance and style will please anyone – guy or gal – looking for a fierce car that delivers on dependability and safety. Just check out some of the features:
- Aggressive exterior character lines and low center of gravity
- New chassis and engine technology for better handling
- Spacious interior with advanced driver focus
- Panoramic glass moon roof
- Built in wi-fi to download, remote lock/unlock the vehicle, and start engine right from your phone
- Standard Toyota Safety Sense-PWhether you
If that’s not enough to get your excited, the completely redesigned look of America’s best selling sedan for the last 15 years should push your over the edge. This car is stunning – inside and out. The vehicle on display looked gorgeous with the two-tone white and black exterior and red leather interior. I, for one, cannot wait for this car to hit the market later this year. Look for it this August/September. If you can’t wait that long, then head on over to the NYIAS to get a look now.
When I finally pulled myself away from the Toyota Camry, I wandered around to check out some of the other vehicles Toyota hand on display and I was not disappointed.
I loved seeing the Prius Prime in person. I’ve heard a lot about this Hybrid car and loved having a chance to see it in person. I’ve been driving another Hybrid around for the last few months and loved comparing the vehicles, what they offer and features.
There was even a Toyota Highlander Hybrid on display that I know by hubby would love since he’s all about SUVs.
If I haven’t sold you yet on why you should head on out to the NYIAS how about these reasons:
NO PRESSURE CAR SHOPPING
If you’re in the market for a new car or thinking of getting behind the wheel of a new car soon, a visit to the New York International Auto Show needs to be your first stop. It’s the perfect chance to really figure out what your looking for in your next vehicle and to get behind the wheel and check out the cars hands on – all without having a high pressure salesman following you around. What you think you want in a vehicle may not be what you want after all once you’ve had a chance to sit in the cars, see the cargo space first hand, etc. In fact, you may even find that what you want is a completely different car.
I’m a muscle car kind of girl. I’ve owned more Chevrolet Camaros than I can count but after a visit to this year’s auto show, I was completely blown away by the 2018 Toyota Camry. Blown away. I haven’t been able to stop talking about this car to anyone who will listen. It isn’t the “typical” car I would usually go for, but I’m in love with it and if it wasn’t for seeing it up close and personal at the NYIAS this year, I don’t know that I would have never noticed it.
PLAN A FUN DAY OUT WITH THE FAMILY
The New York International Auto Show is fun for the whole family. Plan a little getaway into NYC. Visit the auto show, go out to lunch or dinner and wander around the city for a bit. The weather is gorgeous and the kids will have just as much fun as you checking out all the exhibits, cool cars and kid friendly things to do.
WIN A DESIGNER HANDBAG
Did I catch your attention there? I have a slight handbag obsession so this is reason enough for me to want to visit. SheBuysCars is giving away 5 Kate Spade designer handbags, one every other day, during the show. It’s super easy to enter too!
Toyota is part of the Handbag Challenge at the NY Auto Show and all you have to do is visit the booth, snap a photo, use the #HandbagChallengeNYIAS hashtag and post the picture on social media to qualify for your chance to win!

So get out there, show us where you’d put your handbag when you’re checking out all the incredible new cars and snap away!
