The New York Auto Show is upon us! If you're in the NY area be sure to stop by the Jacob Javits Center and see all the cars you'll be dreaming about in the next couple months. We hit the show floor and checked out the new offerings and saw, 1. a lot of hybirds, 2. a lot of hybrids and 3. Some cool race cars (more about that on Monday). Before you head on over, check out our new favorite new models that we saw at this years show and stack your chips...

caddyctsv

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon
Why It's Cool: The Cadillac CTS-V is one of the best cars we've whipped around a track. They've taken all that craziness and gave it a bigger rear end.

minicountryman

2011 Mini Countryman:
Why It's Cool: Minis seem to keep getting bigger and bigger. The first five passenger Mini will get here in January and offer a more powerful engine as well as a cool looking design. As long as we can still park it easily, we'll be happy.

subaruimprezawrx

2011 Subaru Impreza WRX
Why It's Cool: The wing is back! After realizing that a pure WRX has four doors, Subaru brings back the WRX sedan and comes back with one of their biggest wings in history. All that extra downforce is said to be good for a couple extra MPH on the track. Get excited.

nissanjuke

2011 Nissan Juke
Why It's Cool: Don't be fooled by the photo, the Juke is a crossover. And on paper, it looks to be a fun one. It comes with a 1.6 L engine putting out 180 horsepower and 170 lb feet of torque. All for under $20,000.

vwtouareg

2011 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid
Why It's Cool: Well, it's Volkswagen's first hybrid.

kiasportage

2011 Kia Sportage
Why It's Cool: Hyundai's sister company is on the come up! If you don't believe us, just check out their upcoming Sportage. IT doesn't only get fresh new sheetmetal, Kia is going to through a turbo into the mix half way through the year.

acuratsxwagon

2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon
Why It's Cool: The original TSX sedan is... interesting looking. But this new wagon version, offered in Japan as the Honda Accord wagon, is awesome. Seems the Caddy CTS wagon has some comp.

hyundaisonataturbo

2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo
Why It's Cool: Hyundai just can't do any wrong. They unveiled a hybrid version of their newly redesigned Sonata sedan, and, unlike a bunch of other auto makers, they came out with a performance minded version in the 2.0T model. It will put down 274 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque and somehow manage to get 34 mpg.

scioniq

2011 Scion iQ
Why It's Cool: Instead of bringing their new city car here under the Toytoa banner, they're passing it off as a Scion. When its our shores, it'll be one of the smallest cars on the road. So small that Scion is outfitting it with over 10 airbags to keep the drivers and passengers safe. What's a Smart Car?
