Pininfarina’s first production vehicle, the swoopy $2.27 million all-electric Battista hypercar, which develops 1,900 horsepower on a typical day, made its debut at an off-site event in Chelsea although the Battista was not at the show. It is being touted as the most powerful road-legal car available today.

Meanwhile, at the Javits Center, Subaru recreated Yellowstone National Park in order for the all-new Outback to emerge from a somewhat smaller Old Faithful geyser for its introduction to the media. The new Outback is built on the manufacturer’s Global Platform after the Legacy and Forrester, both introduced last year.

Lincoln, in reviving the Corsair nameplate as it discards its alphabet soup nomenclature, introduced the elegant MKC replacement. The Corsair is expected to be available as a plug-in hybrid variant.

Cadillac, which also has a relatively new naming strategy albeit one that remains mired in the cauldron of alphabet soup, introduced the new CT5, a replacement for the ATS that takes its styling cues from the current CT6 as well as from the new XT6 crossover.

Mazda introduced the 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD, a crossover with a Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel (yes, diesel!) engine.

Mercedes-Benz introduced a redesigned GLS flagship crossover that sports its new multimedia system and a new interior. Also making their debut were a redesigned GLC Coupe and several AMG vehicles including an AMG version of the Mercedes A-Class and CLA sedans, both featuring 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
