Baltics’ biggest car show Auto 2017 in April
Kipsala International Exhibition Centre offers the annual International Motor Show "Auto 2017", 7–9 April, that opens up a spring season for all car enthusiasts and professionals. The show includes four thematic sections for a wide range of stakeholders – "Auto", "Transport Engineering", "Auto Mechanics" and "Auto Exotica".
Given that in years following the economic crisis, the new car market in Latvia has been slowly but steadily growing, the number of car brands represented at the show has increased. The most important addition to be mentioned is the comeback of premium segment – "Auto 2017" will present the Jaguar, Land Rover and Range Rover brands last presented in as far back as 2007. Moreover, Honda and Mercedes-Benz return to the Riga International Motor Show after a long break!
Along with the above-mentioned brands, visitors will have an excellent opportunity to both see and compare the latest models of different passenger car and commercial vehicle brands. Actually, we know that visitors will be pleased to see the newest Alfa Romeo, Dacia, Fiat, Ford, Hyundai, Isuzu, Iveco, Jeep, MAN, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Scania, SEAT, SsangYong, Solaris, Subaru, Suzuki and Volkswagen models.
Aside from the brand new passenger cars and off-road vehicles, the thematic section "Transport Engineering" at "Auto 2017" will present the newest commercial and industrial vehicles, including road freight and passenger transport vehicles, public utility vehicles, warehousing machinery and equipment.
Garage equipment, automotive repair tools and car accessories showcased in the thematic section "Auto Mechanics", by contrast, will attract not only professionals but also motoring enthusiasts. Need new tyre hubs? This is the right place to look for them. Professionals, in their turn, will highly appreciate the vast range of car parts and accessories offered by Intercars, as well as the 10th annual edition of the Young Auto Mechanic 2017 Competition that promises to be very spectacular.
The thematic section of "Auto Exotica" ¬– one of the largest tuning shows of Eastern Europe and meeting place for motoring clubs – is the cherry on the cake of Riga International Motor Show. Also this year, this is the place to see not only locally converted cars but also tuning masterpieces from other countries.
In recent years, Riga International Motor Show has grown into the largest automotive event in the Baltic countries in terms of size, quality, number of participants and attendance. "Auto 2016" was attended by a total of 37,951 people or grew by 8.3 percent compared to the attendance numbers with those of a year before. Read more: www.bt1.lv/auto
