Kelly and Michael: New York Auto Show Week
The hosts kicked off Live’s New York Auto Show Week, featuring some hot cars you have not yet seen elsewhere. The Drive host Alan Taylor teamed up with Kelly & Michael to show off some versatile vehicles, from the Ford Transit Connect to the new Nissan Murano’s Predictive Warning System.
Kelly & Michael: Nissan Murano Review & Predictive Warning System
Taylor kicked things off with the world debut of the new Nissan Murano. It comes in all-wheel drive or two-wheel drive. It includes a state of the art Predictive Warning System, monitoring cars around you to help detect accidents early and give you advance warning.
There is plenty of tech, including touch screen and the ability to speak to the car and activate its features. It will cost in the neighborhood of $30,000.
Kelly and Michael: Ford Transit Connect Review
With plenty of headroom and seven-passenger seating, Kelly Ripa thought she might be able to stand upright in the Ford Transit Connect. It could fit all of Kelly and Michael’s kids, and it is like van. Michael played chauffeur as Alan Taylor explained that it gets almost 30 miles per gallon and will be in the low $20,000 price range.
Kelly & Michael: Kia Sedona Review
Next, Alan Taylor gave Kelly & Michael a world debut of the new Kia Sedona minivan, which had not yet been unveiled anywhere else. It features uncommon style and design, as well as first-class seating that reminded Kelly of movie theater seating.
Michael said he would rather ride in the back than have to drive, because it seemed so comfortable. The car can read your phone’s text messages to you, as well as getting decent fuel economy. Kelly thought it would be a great way to relax on long car trips. Michael just wanted to open and close the doors with his remote.
Kelly and Michael: Jeep Renegade Review
Jeep has a brand new Renegade, which comes with the choice of two engines. It is perfect for getting off road, with its nine-speed transmission, as well as a disconnect for better fuel economy. It is trail-rated and has an enormous sunroof. It costs around $20,000.
More fun stuff will be revealed all week on Live!, and the New York Auto Show kicks off Friday, April 18 at the Jacob Javits Center.
