New England Auto Show

New England Auto Show 2016

Each January the New England Auto Show happens at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in the trendy Seaport District of Boston, MA. Not to be compared with Detroit and Los Angeles auto shows that unveil new, top-line and concept cars, the New England Auto Show showcases mostly mid-line cars from most of, but not all of the manufacturers.

The 2016 cars were a bit on the pedestrian side. There was nothing top end at Mercedes-Benz, BMW, etc. A few exotics were scattered about with a decent showing from Aston Martin.

Let’s take a look at the highlights
