Detroit Auto Show: New BMW, New Caddy, New...

By Editors on January 14, 2009 1:32 PM
The economy and the auto industry have seen better days, certainly, but the show must go on. Even if the 2009 Detroit Auto Show isn't shaping up to be the spectacle it's been in recent years, it's still the biggest auto show in the world's largest car market. This year, the list of must-see vehicles includes the next-generation Toyota Prius and Honda Insight hybrids, the production version of the Fisker Karma and a radically transformed Ford Taurus. Others to check out include the new BMW Z4 Roadster, a sharp-looking Volvo S60 Concept and the new MINI Cooper Convertible, which logs the number of miles driven with the top down. The GM contingent includes second-generation iterations of the Cadillac SRX, Chevy Equinox and Buick LaCrosse, plus the new Chevy Cruze compact car. Of course, we're still trying to pry our eyes and imaginations off the outrageous Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss. Follow the link at left for more.
