At Nissan, there were a couple vehicles I was interested in seeing. The new Maxima, which debuted at the 2015 New York Auto Show, in April, was there but I didn’t get any good shots. (Coming clean, the hood would not shut all the way and riled me up, so I moved on to their trucks.)

In the 1980s and ’90s I admired Honda products but my passion faded along with theirs. Like Toyota, their latest products are infused with sporty and unique traits and the new Civic is no exception.

While Honda’s latest resurgence of design passion seems moderately restrained, in many instances, Toyota’s has come unhinged. There were plenty of nice vehicles on display but I couldn’t help gravitating to the most polarizing of the bunch.

Historically, Volvo was never associated with cutting edge styling. However (here comes the nerd in me), starting with the 700 Series, in 1985, the edginess became edgy and acceptable for a premium offering.

No, I didn’t photograph the all-new CX-9. Shame on me. I actually forgot to look for it. I can partially blame that on the scene that unfolded at a Miata display.
