If you’re thinking of buying a new car this year, make sure
to check out one of the Motor Trend International Auto Show’s if they come to
The Auto Show is the best opportunity to see the newest models from all of the top manufacturers in one place.
Look, touch, and feel the cars close up and have any questions answered by representatives from the manufacturer or a local dealer representative.
If you like taking information with you, all of the manufacturers have brochures and fact sheets available and in this electronic age, you can even set up a test drive while you’re at the show.
I visited The Northeast International Auto Show in Providence on a Saturday afternoon, and the floor was busy with car shoppers. The show features standard gas driven models, hybrids, and the newest electric cars.
Some of the new or redesigned vehicles at the show are the Acura TL, Buick Verano, Chevrolet Sonic, Dodge Charger, FIAT 500, Ford Focus, Subaru Impreza, Toyota Camry and others.
A couple of major redesigns were featured including the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu and 2013 Ford Taurus.
If you feel the need for speed, you won’t be disappointed either as standard and super-charged models of the Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang, and others are on display and available for hands on reviews.
My personal favorites in the speed demon categories that exceeded the $100,000 mark were the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 which is a limited edition model that comes out each year and is made for going fast! Top speed is supposedly 205 mph and the car goes 0 – 60 in just over 3.5 seconds.
The other that I don’t know much about but if looks could kill, this one would do it is the Audi Rocket R8. It’s a V-10 Lamborghini mid-engine car that generates over 500 horsepower. The body is aluminum and carbon fiber and weighs around 3,000 pounds. The $185,000 price tag is too rich for most, but it never hurts to dream!
As usual, Motor Trend does a first rate job in arranging the auto show logistics to keep traffic moving and at the same time showcase the best that each manufacturer has to offer.
In RI, attendees will also receive a free subscription to Motor Trend Magazine with each admission (an $12 value), compliments of the Rhode Island Automobile Dealers Association.
