I like my cars like I like my clothes: well-made, stylish, and the perfect color. The newest selection of vehicles at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) brought all the style and checked all the boxes.
I partnered with She Buys Cars and The Steel Market Development Institute (SMDI), premier sponsor of NAIAS to bring you a peek at what you’ll see at this year’s Detroit Auto show, plus school you a little bit on the benefits of purchasing a steel-made vehicle. Have you ever thought about what your car is made of and how it can affect you and the environment? Bet you will now!
SMDI aims to accelerate innovation in the automotive industry by spreading the good word about steel. For starters, steel is a performance leader because of its superior strength, and lightweight durability. Plus, steel-made vehicles are much easier to repair. And did you know steel has the lowest greenhouse gas emissions? Today’s steels are as much as six times stronger than steels of a decade ago and three to four times stronger than the latest aluminum alloys on the market.
So as you walk through the show floor at this year’s auto show, remember – only one material is Accelerating Innovation through increased performance, value and sustainability. You can follow the steel story during NAIAS on Twitter via #SteelMatters.
Now that I dropped a little knowledge on you, take a look at my picks for the most fashion forward rides at NAIAS 2017.
Hello, red hot ride! The reveal of the 2018 Kia Stinger was a jaw-dropper as this sleek and sporty machine alters the collection of Kia vehicles, and in a good way.
Jeep Compass Grey
The newly designed Jeep Compass got some major upgrades this year when it comes to style. New body type, fun colors, and all around great looking ride. As a current Jeep owner, I was very pleased to see this little beauty.
Mazda MX-5 RF
I’m not one to pay attention to super sporty cars, but this little baby caught my eye instantly. The interior reminds me of something straight out of a 007 film. Vroom vroom, my friends.
Black Label Lincoln MKX
Luxury goals! I have had my eye on Lincolns recently, so naturally I had to visit the Lincoln display at NAIAS. I was pleasantly surprised to find the seats offer a massage and the black on cream interior is quite classy (I typically go for black interior). Best part of this car? It’s made of steel, as are all Lincoln vehicles excluding the Navigator.
The first car I purchased on my own was a little red Toyota Corolla I named Lola Perez. So of course I appreciate the upgraded features of the newest Corolla, and was happy to find out the car is celebrating its 50th anniversary. And how fab is this color?
2018 Lincoln Navigator Concept
There’s a built in closet. *drops the mic*
