Svelte Stringray’s chiseled good looks prove even more piercing in the flesh

It’s not often a car generates such a tremendous amount of buzz and excitement while also polarizing opinions over its exciting and at times odd design language.

But that’s exactly what the seventh generation Corvette (C7) caused upon its debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

While there has been a tremendous amount of adulation for the sexy Stingray’s design, the car’s exterior has also been met with a good amount of derision.

And while Digital Trend’s automotive staff has been – at times – at odds with one another over the car’s chiseled looks, our recent excursion to the 2013 New York Auto Show — and our chance to see the car in the flesh – proved that photos simply don’t do it any justice. It’s awesome.

Don’t take our word for it though, check out our pics and tell us what your take is on the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Read Nick Jaynes in-depth article (with more photos) about the new Stingray here.

Kia HabaNiro concept

What will the car of the future look like? Will it fly? Will it be powered by some previously unknown propulsion system? Kia thinks cars will develop in a different direction. Debuting at the 2019 New York Auto Show, the HabaNiro concept is a small car that's part hatchback, part SUV, and powered by electric motors. It's also packed with tech that could change the way people interact with cars.

Kia considers the HabaNiro to be a crossover, but the automaker claims that's only because the auto industry hasn't come up with a proper classification for it. Like many current crossovers, though, the HabaNiro has the general proportions of a hatchback, but with a raised ride height and more upright roof. Designers added some unusual details as well: The grille is supposed to resemble a shark's snout,  according to Kia, and the daytime running lights pulse to represent a heartbeat.
