Chicago Auto Show #CAS17 | Sexy Cars and SUVS Why Everyone Should Attend

The Chicago Auto Show #CAS17 is the largest auto show in the Nation. I recently had the opportunity to attend the media preview event on February 9th and we had a great time. My husband was my special news correspondent. If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, your were there as we took you “live’ for a sneak peak inside McCormick Place Chicago.

 

Inside the Chicago Auto Show #CAS17

The cars inside the Chicago Auto Show #CAS17 are more than amazing. There is literally a car type for everyone’s taste. From family cars, super cars to concept cars the Chicago Auto Show has it al. We had an amazing time looking at all the cars. In addition to being the largest auto show in the nation, the Chicago Auto Show, in one night raises more than $2.5 millions each year for 18 Chicago organizations during the Chicago Auto Show’s First Look for Charity event. With more than 420 franchised new-car dealers and an additional 150 allied members the Chicago Auto Show is an exceptional conference.

If you like cars, and honestly who doesn’t then this is the show for you. The Chicago Auto Show is sure to please. We do it big in Chicago on all levels, and these cars came to impress.

We were able to test drive the Toyota Highland Hybrid, which was my absolute favorite. It had so many features that as a mother living in a city, I really appreciated everything the car has to offer.

The new 2017 Highland Hybrid seats 7-8 with a new V 6 engine and the following

  • Toyota Safety Sense Camera
  • Blind Spot Monitor 7 with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert 17
  • 19-in. Chromatic alloy wheels
  • Heated and ventilated front-row seats
  • Entune™ Premium JBL® Audio with Integrated Navigation 14 and App Suite 13
  • Seating for seven with second-row captain’s chair and 60/40 third-row seats

After I was done drooling over Toyota. We made our way through the rest of the show.

Kia did not disappoint either.
