The rollouts included luxury vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz C Class and new coupes from BMW, Lexus and Infiniti, a sports car concept from Toyota
"The heavy emphasis on seductive high-performance machines confirms the level of confidence permeating the automotive industry," said Kelley Blue Book analyst Karl Brauer.

Honda's new Fit, rolled out Monday, "definitely made a big splash," said Edmunds.com analyst Jessica Caldwell. "But it's an oddball here.
"This show doesn't have that green feel we have had at every show for a while," Caldwell said.
Kelley Blue Book analyst Eric Ibara also applauded the Fit, calling it "a mainstay for Honda that hasn't changed much, which may be a good thing -- it was such a great car to begin with."
Ibara, who oversees residual value forecasting, said he expects the 2015 Fit to be near the top of the list for holding value, just as its predecessors have done, although he noted: "We will have to drive the car to assess the difference from the previous generation."
Still, in assessing the top cars at the Detroit Auto Show, who doesn't love the oddball?
