Main theme: The New York Auto Show. Our auto experts came away thoroughly impressed with the number of vehicle debuts, safety advancements, and future technology on display. 

First up, they discuss two key redesigned models in the compact SUV segment: Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester. Next, they cover two vehicles that should make big impacts for their respective manufacturers: Cadillac XT4 and Lincoln Aviator.

Last, just when you thought the auto show was only about SUVs, the panel discusses the new Toyota Corolla Hatchback and Nissan Altima sedan.

Trends: New safety and infotainment systems.

Show favorites: The panelists discuss the models that stood out to them.

Viewer questions: The live audience peppered our experts with questions ranging from how we will categorize electric cars in the future and the disappearance of the Honda LaneWatch system to what we think of the 2019 Acura RDX . . . and even what vehicle a young buyer should get that would impress a date!
