{On The Scene} The Chicago Auto Show

Hey Delights!

When I went to the Chicago Auto Show media day I was somewhat surprised at how much I was into the cars. Don't get me wrong, I love cars, especially the pretty colors & all the fancy tech gadgets but being on-site with SheBuysCars was majorly eye opening. You can check out a lot of what we got into via the hashtags #HyundaiCAS and #GenesisCAS. Unfortunately I got sick so I had to curtail my other plans to visit the auto show  but you can check out what I did share via my hastag #CurvatudeCAS

Scotty Reiss, co-founder of SheBuysCars expanded & blew my mind with the wealth of knowledge she has about the auto industry. Hearing her talk about the ways that we women have influenced the industry was especially interesting.

Women apparently influence the purchase of 85% of all cars. That's a lot of influence & buying power & automakers have definitely taken note, especially in the way that they now build and equip vehicles like minivans.

And while I would not be in the market for a family vehicle since my kid is grown & gone off living her own life, I do have very specific needs in a vehicle.

As I've gotten older I realize I don't want a really large vehicle and I don't want a really small vehicle. I also need a vehicle that is accommodating and flexible.

During our tour of the Chicago Auto Show we attended the press conference for the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT & GT Sport. 

It's a hatchback, a type of vehicle that I honestly never really considered but I really dug it's look and features, especially it's size, which fits the criteria I mentioned above.  And I loved it's cargo space., which can basically hold 28 basketballs. That's a LOT of space.

Here is one of the on-site reps breaking it all down for us.

Pretty cool!  As mentioned, I hung out with SheBuysCars & agreed to share my thoughts with you guys and I am glad I did. I always say I am not really interested in driving but this experience has definitely changed that and who knows, you may see me zooming down the highway in the very near future.

If you haven't made it to the The Chicago Auto Show, you still have time. It runs thru Monday, Feb 20th.
