This weekend, the annual Seattle Auto Show will highlight almost 500 vehicles from car manufacturers around the globe, along with local auto-centered companies, engaging your gearhead nature and providing great entertainment for your friends or family (or both).
From Subaru, Honda, and more showcasing the latest in sedan, SUV, and Cross-over goodness, to Jeeps’ new Renegade and the Chevrolet Colorado, to high end cars you’ll only (usually) get to see on a showroom floor or on a movie screen, such as a McLaren MP4-12C or the Corvette Stingray.
Check out the many alternative fuel vehicles – from the Nissan Leaf to the Chevrolet Spark to Tesla’s Model S, and more – for the more eco-friendly car enthusiast in the PNW.
For those wanting a more hands on experience, about a dozen manufacturers will be offering free test drives of the latest models. After you’re done looking in and around names like Scion and Toyota, you can head out to the garage and sign up for a free roll around the block – trip comes with free, in-car auto-rep.
When you’re done looking at all the new cars and trying out your select few, head over to Tacoma’s very own LeMay America’s Car Museum exhibit to take a look at the custom rods, classic Fords, and cool cars from across the eras.
The Seattle Auto Show really has something for everyone – if cars isn’t your thing, let your gearhead friend drag you along so you can get your hands on some new Microsoft products at the Xbox One tour car, featuring the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 computers.
Tickets for the Seattle Auto Show are $14 for adults and $11 for seniors over 62, while children under 12 get in for free. E-tickets can be purchased online for easy admittance.
CenturyLink’s doors open for the Seattle Auto Show at:
Thursday from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Friday from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
While the Seattle Auto Show may not have the pomp and circumstance that Paris or New York auto shows may have, it will still get your gearhead heart pumping. Check it out this weekend only at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
Note: Some Mazda fans may be disappointed to not see the ND Miata, however, since there’s only one or two in existence currently, it’s hard to blame anyone. The 2016 Miata is a hot commodity! (And by that we mean it looks amazing [in images].) You can still romp around in the roomy and beautiful 2015 Miata and check out the full ZoomZoom-fun Mazda lineup.
