Hooniverse Asks: What Is Your Favorite 2017 NAIAS Debut?

NAIAS Cover Image
Well, I have to say that this year’s Detroit Auto Show, more grandiosely known as the North American International Auto Show was a little light on the excitement this year. Oh sure there was a new Camry, and Kia—Kia!—debuted a new four-door sedan, but to be honest, there wasn’t all that much to get the auto enthusiast all that enthused.
That’s not to say there weren’t some high points to the show. And in fact that’s just what we’re interested in today—the Detroit debuts that did seem to get you all hot and bothered. Or, at least piqued your interest. Did you see anything that really floats your boat? What is your favorite 2017 NAIAS debut?

    What a yawner of a show…

    I think that Kia that you have pictured at the top left is the standout of this year’s NAIAS. The Kia. The most interesting debut of the show was a Kia. A Kia. It’s pretty sweet for a Kia, but it’s a Kia, nonetheless.

      I’m hesitant to use the word “standout” but it’s probably the only one I would consider owning.

    What’s my favorite brand of wallpaper paste? I dunno. The Stinger could be interesting, but what a stupid name.

    And, Peter M. DeLorenzo over at The Autoextremist summed the show up nicely:
    MOBILITY FIRESIDE CHATS, AUTONOMOUS GROUP HUG SESSIONS AND AN UNWANTED REMAKE OF SHAKESPEARE’S “MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.” WELCOME TO THE BRAVE NEW AUTO WORLD, FOLKS. AND BY THE WAY, WE JUST “GOTS” TO KNOW: WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH THE DETROIT AUTO SHOW?

    Ford put the 2018 Mustang out on the floor…
    After press day.
    After the weekend masses.
    What genius thought of that?

    The next article about the sorry Renault 21/Medallion had the same number of comments until I posted this, that says a lot.

      I suspect there’d be more NAIAS comments if that Medallion had been on display.

    I’m more excited about the Aston Martin RB001’s world Auto Show debut in Toronto next month (Haha! They skipped over Chicago for once, instead of the other way around). Toronto always gets passed over for fresh debuts (Detroit – January then Chicago – early February, skipping Toronto at mid-late February).
    I can’t even remember the last time Toronto hosted a world debut …

    One of the worst shows in a long time. Dad and I go every year on a Saturday. We arrive around 9 and are usually done around 3. This year we were done at 1.
    The list of no shows is depressing. Porsche, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mini. I’m probably missing someone. China’s GAC had main floor space as did Michelin, ZF, Denso, Aisin, Brembo and Pixar. Yeah, Pixar was promoting Cars 3 on the main floor of NAIAS.
