The New York International Auto Show opens this week with a mix of mainstream sedans and glitzier models from automakers across the globe.There are a handful of new midsize cars and compact cars, including the Malibu from Chevrolet, the Optima from Kia, Scion's first-ever sedan and a sporty new concept Civic from Honda that may be the highlight of the show for everyday car buyers. The sedan version will be in showrooms this fall, with a coupe, hatchback and a high-performance R-Type coming later.The hatchback iM, priced under $20,000, is aimed at those who want a sporty car that can haul things. The iA sedan, to cost around $16,000, looks more like a coupe but has enough room to tote people. The sedan can get up to 42 miles per gallon on the highway, while the sportier hatchback gets up to 37 mpg. Both cars hit showrooms in September. Kia is being cautious with the 2016 Optima midsize sedan, not wanting to mess with the car's success.There is a new 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with 178 horsepower, and Kia's first-ever seven-speed transmission.The sexy Jaguar XF sedan gets a makeover to look more like a coupe.
