We’ve touched down at Detroit and are
busy roaming through the halls checking out all of the amazing new
vehicles and their displays. We wanted to bring you a little bit of an
update on some of the really cool cars and booths we have visited so
Mercedes-Benz: They have a full-size ice rink in their
booth with vehicles on it and ice skaters! It is such a great sight to
see something like that inside a convention center hall!
General Motors: Besides the new Volt,
we saw the Efijy, an amazing concept vehicle based off of a 1951 Buick.
Look at those lines! It is incredible! Sign us up for the first one!
Chrysler: In the DaimlerChrysler booth, there are gorgeous moving,
floating working water fountains among their beautiful vehicle
The SMART car booth served all of us “smart breakfasts” while we
perused their lineup of adorable and fuel-friendly vehicles.
Suzuki: Check out the Flix! This Suzuki show car turns their cute XL7 SUV into a traveling drive-in!
Scion is offering a new customizing option for your vehicles. They have
been known for their many options in in-car entertainment, but now you
can customize the outside as well! They have customizable colors and
stickers for your Scion. In their booth they have all the Scion cars
stacked on shelves like a giant toy room!
Saab: We saw the AeroX, a beautiful and futuristic concept vehicle.
“Born From Jets” is apropos in this case—the top looks just like the
cockpit of a fighter jet!
Stay tuned as we bring you more updates in the next few days of all the new reveals and the star-studded appearances!
