2012 San Diego International Auto Show

2012 San Diego International Auto Show presented by the New Car Dealers Association of San Diego County, takes place Thursday through Jan. 1 at the San Diego Convention Center. The show features more than 500 new-model vehicles covering more than 500,000 square feet of exhibit space.

“The industry is on an upswing, and the auto show is reflective of that,” said Amy Foley, director of marketing for the New Car Dealers Association. “We have all our manufacturers with us this year, and the fact that a couple that were previously missing are now back is an indicator. People will be able to see the full product lines.” The auto show, naturally, offers plenty of extras.

For automotive history buffs, Jaguar and Porsche will display exhibits showing the origins of their lines from beginning to present. And for those who prefer their cars “green,” the Think Blue Eco-Center showcases the latest in eco-friendly automotive technologies.

The Mazda Family Day on Jan. 1 allows children ages 12 and younger free admission to the show when accompanied by a paid adult. The GEICO Power Sports Pavilion promotes the many recreational opportunities available in the county.

People are interested in these cars, and they are also more knowledgeable about them than ever before. Hybrids and alternative-fuel vehicles are not seen as niche anymore. They really are part of the mainstream.
