This past weekend I went to go check out the SV Auto Show held at the San Jose Convention Center. Many brands such as BMW, Audi, Ford, Chevy, Toyota among others came to display their lastest and greatest vehicles on sale in the market today/near future. I would like to say that there were over 100 vehicles there that day, with about half of them which you could actually open the doors to and sit inside. They also had a few brands that allowed you to test drive some of their vehicles, namely Fiat, Chevy, Ford and Toyota.
A few cars that I think deserve a mention are the Infiniti Q60, Lexus LX470 and the Fiat Spider. The Infiniti had a stunning red paint color that I think pictures cannot do it justice. The seats felt really comfortable but the steering wheel with extended paddle shifters was what really caught my attention. Sure you can do an aftermarket install for many cars but it was nice to see a manufacturer other than those in the 200k+ price range add features like this to their vehicles. I typcially don't really enjoy Lexus as they're more of a Luxury brand that usually doesn't pump out enthusiast vehicles. They're mainly for a smooth comfy ride and that's not exactly what I'm looking for in cars. But let's forget about that, because the LX470 was really something I liked. Sitting in the driver's seat I had a commanding view. It had a huge display and by huge I mean like smash together 3 or 4 iPads together big. The seating and steering wheel were both enjoyable to sit in and to hold. For some reason, I just thought it was something worth mentioning. The last is the Fiat Spider. I will be going over why I like it in another post but I sure enjoyed that small little car.
The following will be a huge gallery of the pics I took during my time there. I will talk about the BMW vehicles I saw there in a separate post. I will be going into more detail for BMW than the rest of the cars here.
