The 2013 New York Auto Show kicks off on March 29 and will debut some of the hottest new vehicles that will hit the road later in the year.

One of the big reveals at the show is the introduction of the redesigned 2014 Highlander crossover from Toyota Motor Corp.

This next-generation Highlander will allegedly feature similar style of the 3013 RAV4 compact with a hybrid powertrain, according to Edmunds.

The 2014 Highlander will likely offer upgrades to the 2013 version that offers either a 187-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine or a 270-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine. The Highlander currently on the market offers an EPA 20 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway for the four-cylinder along with the V6's 18 mpg in city driving and 24 mpg on the highway.

Toyota sales of the Highlander series increased by 20 percent in 2012 and the company is likely expecting to try and capitalize on the vehicle's popularity with the latest crossover edition, according to Auto News.

Mercedes-Benz is also set to show off the new CLA 250 that is being marketed as an entry level vehicle.

The company is trying to seek new owners that previously were unable to afford one of the brand's cars with the CLA 250's budget price at $30,000, according to Benzinsider.

While it may have a cheaper price compared to other cars created by the German auto-maker, it still packs 208 horsepower with a 7-speed automatic gearbox and collision prevention assistance.

Another big reveal for the New York Auto Show is the 2014 QX60 Hybrid from Infiniti.

The new car is designed to give drivers both performance and efficiency from a luxury vehicle with a combined 26 mpg, which is a 24 percent increase than the previous on the non-hybrid models, according to Green Car Reports.

The 2014 QX60 also packs a 2.5-liter four cylinder gasoline engine, a 15 kW electric motor, and a net system power is around 250 hp.

The New York International Auto Show starts on March 29 and will run through April 7.
