ANCHOR LEAD: Car makers may have saved the best for the last auto show of the year. As this year's New York International Auto Show rolls on… consumers are seeing a shift from gas-guzzling SUV's. Brian Osuch has more. (:60) SCRIPT: Zero to Sixty, I'm Brian Osuch. This year's New York International Auto Show is showing off all the latest innovations the automotive industry has to offer. And GM's, James Bell says the biggest trend he's seeing is the return of the sedan. Which one stands out? CUT: (Bell) The Chevrolet Impala, it's got a lot of muscularity, it's low and lean, it looks like it spent some time at the gym with the Camaro actually. If a car looks good, it will sell. SCRIPT: And how about other standouts? CUT: (Bell) The Nissan Ultima. It was a fine car, but it maybe lacked a little essence of design or refinement. They've addressed those things and it gets great fuel efficiency as well. Another vehicle I think is worthy of mentioning is the BMW X1. The entry level luxury type vehicle that's much more affordable, allows someone to get into a BMW or a Buick or a Cadillac… but do it at a better price point. The Buick Enclave… they just refreshed it, gave it a new interior, new headlights, taillights… really kind of made it much more appealing. Even though, the old model is still doing very well.
