The New York International Motor Show kicked off at the start of April, with many of the latest high end models on display. This annual event is a showcase for all makes and models of car that are sold in the US and includes both production and concept cars. As a large scale international event, it is often chosen by car manufacturers as the place to reveal their latest models. This year visitors are seeing many exciting new vehicles including:

Toyota Hybrids

Fifteen years ago Toyota was ahead of the game when it launched and first sold the Prius hybrid car in the US. It has continued to work on developing the hybrid technology and this year reveals the 2016 RAV4 which builds on its record for fuel efficiency, practicality and versatility.

Volkswagen Character

The VW Beetle has been sold as a car with personality and at the New York Motor Show three new styles have been revealed. The Pink, Denim and Wave editions allow people to find their ideal match. Alongside these the new VW R Line Beetle was on display.

Hyundai Utility

The Hyundai Tucson Crossover is essentially a utility vehicle. This latest model combines functionality with a larger interior, a smoother ride and better fuel consumption to make it a more desirable version of a practical working car.

These cars aren’t likely to reach the showrooms until next year, however the highlights from last year’s motor shows are now available to purchase.

UK Car Manufacture

As the New York International Motor Show opened there was positive news from the UK. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders reported that March 2015 had been the best year for new car registrations since August 1998. March is always a strong month due to the release of the new number plates, but with 492,774 new cars, registrations were up 6% on the previous year.

So, what are the reasons behind this strong month, which marks three years of growth in the industry?

Firstly, there is considerable demand for British cars in foreign markets, so exports have been good. In addition there has been growing interest in fuel efficient vehicles and as more models include fuel efficiency features, people have been encouraged to make a purchase. Finally the low interest rates have made it possible for people to borrow money to finance a new car.

Dealership Offers

Another reason is that many dealerships are offering tempting offers on new car purchases. These include a significant contribution towards the deposit on premium models, free or low cost servicing for the first 3 years and affordable month payment options. Border Motor Group is an example of a dealership that is offering such deals, so if you are looking for a wide selection of new cars, Carlisle based Border Motor Group is worth a visit the Border Motor Group Website.

With specialist knowledge in Toyota, Lexus, Skoda, Hyundai and Volkswagen cars, the team at Border Motor Group can assist you in finding the ideal vehicle to meet your requirements. From a practical run around, to a luxurious cruiser, we will provide the advice and support you need to make the final decision.
