As one of the nation's largest auto shows, the Philadelphia Auto Show annually welcomes approximately 250,000 attendees and has a proven track record of influence on consumers in the region. Every year, an average of 90 percent of attendees who are in the market for a new vehicle report that their purchasing decision is influenced by the show, which translates to about $3.5 billion in sales regionally.
"The Auto Show has never been more relevant" said Kevin Mazzucola, executive director of the event. "Attendees are trying the metal on. While you can compare price, MPGs, etc. on the internet, you canâ€™t touch, see, or feel the vehiclesâ€”and so many of themâ€”the way you can here. Consumers crave that experience and that is why our attendance has never been stronger.â€???
This year marks the 118th edition of the Philadelphia Auto Show. More highlights and details include:

This year's featured and beloved classic cars will take you on a stroll down memory lane. Each classic car has its own story; whether it is one of the last of its kind left, one of a thousand ever created, or a forever-iconic model â€“ Philadelphia Auto Show guests can check out each and every one of them thanks to the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, Antique Automobile Club of America, Vintage Auto Museum of New Jersey and Classic Auto Mall.
The 30,000 square-foot Camp Jeep experience will be making its seventh consecutive appearance this year and invite Auto Show attendees to be driven by professional 4x4 drivers through an on- and off- road course right on the show floor. Rides will be offered in the Cherokee Trailhawk, Wrangler Unlimited, Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, Renegade Trailhawk and Compass.
Guests will also get the opportunity to find what moves them at the 2019 Ride and Drive Zone. Located just outside the DUB display on the street level of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the Zone will offer test drives from Mazda, Toyota, and Volkswagen. Details for each vehicle manufacturer vary and should be monitored at phillyautoshow.com.<http://www.phillyautoshow.com/>
