The highlights of this year's New York International Auto Show

More than 60 vehicles will make their world debut at the New York International Auto Show opening Friday.

This year's show has the most new cars in its 115-year history. Car enthusiasts and consumers alike can scope out the most innovative 2015 and 2016 models out there, see the world's coolest supercars up close and take an off-road ride on an 18-foot high "mountain" at the Camp Jeep exhibit. Visitors can also ride in a Toyota Camry through a custom-designed course.

The show runs from Friday to April 12 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center and costs $16 for adults and $7 for kids 12 and under. Download the New York International Auto Show app for updates and details.

These are some highlights:

 

Lincoln Continental Concept

The Continental Concept creates a new look for Lincoln with an elegant design and new centered chrome grill. The sleek luxury sedan is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine and has adaptive steering. But the most innovative feature works when the driver is out of the car: It can sense its owner approaching and lights up inside and outside.

Jaguar F-TYPE

Sporting a new hood design, the upgraded 2016 model boasts new powertrain and driveline features, instinctive all-wheel drive and electric power assisted steering. A new Jaguar control system allows emergency calling and advanced smartphone connectivity.

The 550hp F-TYPE R is available in coupe and convertible models, both with a top speed of 186 mph. The coupe was a finalist in the 2015 World Car Award's Performance Car of the Year category.

 

Citroen C4 Cactus

A finalist for the World Car Design of the Year award, the Citroen C4 Cactus is stylish yet functional. It lives up to its name with up to 91 miles a gallon. The Airbump panels on either side protect it from minor scrapes, while the interior features a slim dashboard made possible by moving the airbags to the roof, and a 7-inch touch-screen control panel.

 

McLaren 675LT

Focused on lightweight, optimized aerodynamics and increased power, this supercar will be the most track-focused, but still road legal McLaren model yet. Powered by a 3.8-liter V8 engine, it can jump from zero to 62 mph in less than three seconds, with a top speed of 205 mph.

 

Hyundai Santa CruzThis crossover truck is geared toward "urban adventurer" millennials, with an environmentally friendly 2.0-liter turbo diesel powertrain, 190 horsepower and a fuel economy close to 40 miles per gallon. The Santa Cruz can haul much more than it seems, thanks to a tailgate that extends to the size of a mid-size pickup.

 

Alfa Romeo 4C SpiderThe open-top version of last year's coupe, the new 4C Spider features an all-aluminum, 1750cc turbocharged direct injection engine with a top speed of 160 mph and variable-valve timing. This small but powerful Italian race-inspired two-seater is sure to turn heads.

 

Ford GT

The new high-performance Ford supercar boasts a next-generation twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine capable of more than 600 horsepower. The aerodynamic design features lighter materials, minimized drag, carbon-fiber wheels and a rear spoiler that's reactive to conditions.
