Who Won Gold at This Year’s Auto Show?

Posted by: Mary Perisin

Many new vehicles and concept cars debuted this year at the Chicago Auto Show. In honor of the Olympics’ we decided to hand out our own medals to these cars.

Taking Gold by a landslide, according to media and show-goer feedback, is Kia’s Niro concept car. This car has been one of the breakout stars of this year’s show. The exterior of this subcompact-sized urban hybrid is flawlessly designed. It has a futuristic design filled with luxurious accessories. Its style appeals to a younger, trendy demographic and its functionality and elegance has won over the older generation. Although this car, if take to production might lose some of its fun features, such as butterfly doors, it will still set a precedent for all other small crossovers.

The Silver medal would be awarded to Subaru’s 2015 Legacy. This car will appear at dealerships across the country this summer. It increased its cylinders to four and drastically improved its fuel efficiency. Both the interior and the exterior are sleek and sophisticated. Subaru has been climbing in the automotive industry and this car has proved that they are on the right track.

By a very close call, Volvo receives the Bronze with their 2014 Polestar S60 sedan and V60 wagon. Volvo is known for their safety but these cars are unique in the fact that they also have incredible performance features. With 345-horsepower turbocharged I-6 engines, these are the fastest cars that Volvo has ever created.

These three vehicular medalists might not actually compete in any games, but they all deserve recognition for their stunning performances at the Chicago Auto Show.
