New York Auto Show, Second Press Day
By Brendan Moore
The second day of the New York Auto Show opened here with more media types present, but not appreciably more. More of the displays are now moving towards completion, which, again, is out of sync with past years – usually the manufacturers want to put their best foot forward while the automotive press is in front of them, but it seems some of them are more or less just phoning it in this year.
I went by the Volkswagen stand again today to take another look at the 2010 Golf and I have to say, I think it’s a very good updating of VW’s main car. I think it’s a clean, uncluttered look that is pleasing, albeit certainly not exciting.
Hyundai is making everyone nervous in the US auto industry, and they have a great display and show stand here – it looks like their show marketing budget has survived relatively intact, unlike so many others.
I did see some journalists downstairs wandering among the trucks today, so that’s an improvement over yesterday when the whole area looked like a ghost town.
More in a little while.
