The Atlanta International Auto Show will celebrate its 34th anniversary when it returns to the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) on March 9-13, 2016. It is produced by the Metro Atlanta Automobile Dealers Association (MAADA).
Not only is the Atlanta International Auto Show the largest annual consumer event held annually at the GWCC, it is also one of the nation’s great auto shows, attracting many of the world’s major automotive manufacturers during its five day run.
There will be over 400 new and preproduction vehicles on display on the 400,000 square foot show floor.
At press time, the following manufacturers have agreed to participate in the show: ACURA, ALFA ROMEO, AUDI, BUICK, CADILLAC, CHEVROLET, CHRYSLER, DODGE, FIAT, FORD, GMC, HONDA, HYUNDAI, INFINITI, JEEP, KIA, LEXUS, LINCOLN, , MAZDA, MERCEDES-BENZ, MINI, MITSUBISHI, NISSAN, RAM, SCION, SUBARU, TOYOTA, and VOLKSWAGEN.
At press time, the following 2017 pre-production vehicles have been scheduled for display: Audi R8, Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XT5, Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Minivan, Ford Escape, Ford F-150 Raptor, F-250, Ford Fusion, GMC Acadia, Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Kia Forte, Kia Sportage, Lexus LC 500, Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 S Coupe Edition 1, Mercedes-Benz E 220 d, Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 and Mercedes-Benz GLS 63.
This event will once again take place in the C Building of the GWCC. This is a perfect location, since the exhibition area is located on the street level of Northside Drive, where there is plenty of available public parking and a shorter walk to the facility. Those who wish to take a test drive merely have to sign up in the lobby area and then go outside to visit their manufacturer of choice. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
