Join us at the Auto Show - March 12-20, 2016!

The Twin Cities Auto Show is your chance to compare more than 525 vehicles from 37 foreign and domestic brands side by side - without driving all over town.  You will see new models in every category, from compacts and family sedans to the latest in SUVs and luxury cars.  You'll see trucks that offer better mileage, greater utility and convenience, and more luxury features than ever.  You'll hear about financing options.  You will learn about on-board navigation and communication technology and see the growing variety of electric and hybrid vehicles.   And of course - instead of just dreaming about it - the Auto Show is where you can actually sit behind the wheel of one of those sleek, shiny new sports cars.  

Family fun is always part of the Auto Show and will bring out the kid in all of us.  Camp Jeep is a rare experience and even includes a rock climbing tower and Jeep Kids Course.  iHeart radio has daily appearances from the personalities you listen to every day.  Minnesota Wild players (Coach Yeo even appeared in 2015) are regulars for autographs and photos and 2015 featured Disney star Peyton List from the hit show Jessie.  Plans are already underway for 2016 appearances.  

The Ride & Drive attraction is growing.  This is where attendees get behind the wheel and test drive the latest technology on the Minneapolis streets.  In 2015, Ford brought the all-new F150s, BMW brought their i3s and Mazda and Toyota had popular SUVs and cars. 

If you are in the market for a new car or truck - or just thinking about it - this is the place to be.  If you are an auto enthusiast, if you like to stay up-to-date with technology the Auto Show is a fun way to spend the day.  

The Twin Cities Auto Show is a production of GMADA, the Greater Metropolitan Automobile Dealers Association.
