People who visit the show can experience and learn about a variety of Cars.com’s Best of Vehicle finalists.

“For car shoppers, or those even thinking of buying a car right now, the Chicago Auto Show should be at the top of your to-do list because of the opportunity to get up close to a variety of vehicles in one day,” said Jenni Newman, editor-in-chief, Cars.com. “We always recommend researching a variety of vehicles on sites like Cars.com so you have a full understanding of cost, availability, features and technology. However, as you get closer to making your decision on which car to purchase, you need to see and feel the vehicle to determine if it will meet your needs. With hundreds of new vehicles and multiple indoor test tracks, the auto show is a great opportunity to kick the tires before working with your local dealership to make a purchase.”
“Cars.com has been a supporter of the Chicago Auto Show for many years and, this year, they have heightened their investment in the show to further expand its reach and obtain category exclusivity,” said Jim OBrill, sponsorship and marketing director for the Chicago Auto Show. “The experts at Cars.com have an abundance of resources and latest news on their website to aid consumers in their automotive research and education process making them a perfect partner to one of the nation’s largest consumer auto shows.”
