Photos: 2012 New York Auto Show highlights

Spring is in the air in New York City, which means new-car smell is wafting around the city too, as it plays host to the 2012 New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Center.

Although some auto shows are long on wild concepts and far-off exotics, this year’s New York show had a decidedly mainstream bent.

Full-size offerings from Chevrolet and Toyota were paired with reasonable and eco-friendly luxury from Lincoln and Lexus.
