Our blogger, salesman and dedicated auto enthusiast Chris Miller shares his notes on the 2019 Canadian International AutoShow.
Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) vehicles of the year had six competing, three SUVs and three cars, of which half were Korean. That says a lot for the south Asian country’s auto development. The winners were the Kia Stinger car and Jaguar I Pace SUV, the only electric vehicle. I expect in a few years they could be all electric.
Almost every year the German product launches are the most memorable. A general observation of the show is its versatility with amazing classics and exotics with so many on display.
Fiat Chrysler showed off a large range of trucks and many Jeep SUVs with a small display of small cars. Ford went all out with trucks and SUVs while the other manufacturers had large displays of cars as well as SUVs. Almost all manufacturers had a few electric and hybrid vehicles which is an expanding market as most of us are becoming more environmentally conscious.
There were many concept vehicles which looked amazing. Probably by 2022 they will be real vehicles.
Here is a pictorial overview of vehicles that caught my eye.
