Hand-in-hand with the recovering economy, this year's New York International Auto Show marked a solid step forward with plenty of noteworthy introductions.

Several auto manufactures opted to make the Big Apple their locale to debut new vehicles. Cars such as the new four-seat Scion iQ - the little Toyota that makes the Smart ForTwo look a little silly - Acura's TSX Wagon, and Kia's Forte hatchback and striking Magentis midsize were the talk of the show.

From the domestic front, General Motors and Ford Motor Company both showed up with new fuel-efficient models; Chevrolet had its fuel-sipping turbocharged Cruze Eco, while Lincoln showed its first hybrid, based on the MKZ midsize premium sedan.

Following last month's Geneva show, many debuts there also were shown here including the all-new Volvo S60, Volkswagen Touareg, Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, Kia Sportage and more.
