Welcome back to on the hunt and foxnews.com I'm Jonathan Hunt.
The Detroit auto show got on the way yesterday I believe it was.
It's always a showcase for a whole lot of innovation within the auto industry -- new designs of vehicles.
It set trauma and given that I know absolutely nothing about such vehicles we are fortunate enough to be joined by so -- knows everything.
Jack Murat who is executive editorial director and executive market analysts stove with a very swanky -- -- He's with Kelley blue book of goals which you can all check out -- that happened many times at KBB dot com good to see Jack thanks for being with us.
And good policy until it is not I did Camry discredited -- thanks so much for liking yet let's circle.
Looks very swanky and that I'm telling Jack what are what are you most excited about that you've seen so -- this year.
Well I'm at the Honda boot that one of the most exciting concept is that -- this Honda urban SUV.
That is right behind me it's a concept vehicle probably gonna come to market in fourteen months or so 1415 months something like that.
And it kind of exemplifies what we're seeing here which is a drive for higher fuel economy.
And a I drive for great interior accommodation -- smaller sized packages this is that a smaller vehicle that we typically seen in.
And so people want fuel economy and area at the same time they -- -- there were seeing that in a car that's gonna come to market I think take the market by storm.
It's kind of like I say emblematic of what we're seeing here this with.
Introduced yesterday at the show.
Here is the unveiling the -- unveiling and you know they pull out all the stops here.
That the auto -- in this some fifty.
These concepts and production cars that are being introduced here because this is the one international -- in North America.
So create -- it seems that a lot of the manufacturers are looking for this sort of luxury in a smaller package.
Does that also mean better value for the -- -- I think oftentimes it does mean better value and certainly we -- -- -- see that cars are better built than ever before and you know a lot of features in -- smaller package with great fuel economy is something we're seeing from Subaru now the Subaru Forester.
Is car that's getting a lot of attention here at the show because it is day compact.
Utility vehicle with a CBT transmission that provides a lot of fuel economy and then.
One jury is on the plate here as well I mean this is luxury from Hyundai not necessarily a name you'd expect.
They have luxurious coupe concept but.
As a gorgeous vehicle I kind of gently like in a lot of ways and we're gonna see that from Hyundai they're moving a bit upscale.
I know what abandoned the luxury market itself Jack what sort of innovations have you seen in the real luxury market that that have inspired you.
Well we're seeing safety innovations -- luxury market for certain we're -- things like adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning.
-- pretty -- -- Ganassi cars that can mitigate crashes in fact we've seen a little bit that in the luxury market and we're gonna see that trickle down very rapidly we think.
And at the same time we're gonna see more and more -- activity and really interesting ways that using the computer power.
-- cars have these days they have an immense amount of computer power and people want to be connected you know.
Most people have Smartphones these days most people are using tablets of some sort they want to have that same kind of interface in their cars.
And -- the difficulty for the automotive manufactures very often is.
That technology moves faster than they can change the car technologies.
They have to figure out ways to hit it to keep current.
John funny you mentioned safety then Jack I was reading about the although his innovations and and moving towards almost a self.
Driving cop that that seems to be a real focus we are we going to.
For the foreseeable future at least it isn't going to be a question of 'cause that try to keep us out of accidents rather than cows and actually drive themselves.
You're spot -- -- initially that's what we're going to see there's a liability issues to the manufactures and letting cars just drive themselves I don't think.
We're ever gonna have a situation -- we're gonna have a situation in the next ten years.
Where he is that you will just climb in the car you know program go to work and it just drives you there -- you read the paper you know read something on a tab letter something on the dashboard of the car.
But at the same time -- -- are going to talk to each other.
In much the same way that big ships talk to each other right now to let them know where they are and that'll help us avoid a lot of crashes at intersections because.
What you see is.
You got how blind.
Approach to an intersection can lead to it a bad -- -- the cars are -- each other they know about the car being there before you can see in.
All right an event front actually go Jack -- dead until just a little bit about Kelley blue book still -- really important part of any consumers.
Decisions I guess.
Absolutely we like -- thanks RK BB dot com covers every car every year we review every car.
We have immense coverage of this -- there is some.
Fifty concepts and production cars being introduced here is that we that people come and visit -- and course Kelley blue book's been around for 86 years and -- in some ways transformed the car industry by.
Letting people know what.
People are paying for cars and right here -- now.
And that helps them make good buying decisions.
Yup that's for sure I've always found -- -- very useful tool indeed Jack here at any swanky Jim cap executive editorial director and executive market analyst with Kelley blue book dot com.
