The auto show also served as a platform for major car manufacturers to debut several soon-to-be-released 2023 models of vehicles including the Hyundai Palisade, Jeep Wagoneer, Kia Telluride, Kia Niro, Nissan Leaf, Nissan Pathfinder, Subaru Outback, VinFast, and Volkswagen ID. Buzz – a tribute to the classic microbus.

The two-week-long auto show also featured a variety of vintage cars dating as far back as 1909. Included among them were Mario Andretti’s formula-one racecar, and Elvis Presley’s 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II.

Another interesting highlight was variety of different concept models vehicles, such as the Toyota Rhombus, Chrysler Airflow Graphite, Deus Vayanne, and Genesis X Spedium.
