We applaud the effort of these automakers, but the final product just wasn't up to par.

Compared to Detroit and L.A., New York often plays second fiddle to the aforementioned larger, more well-represented auto shows throughout North America. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t an important destination nonetheless. This year we saw a number of global debuts, from automakers both in the U.S. and abroad, a handful of sports cars and supercars, and a ton of SUVs.

For what it’s worth, there was plenty more good to note than there was bad. Of course, there are still a few vehicles and general ideas that fell short at the end of the day. Here’s what you should try to avoid if you’re heading to the New York Auto Show this year.
