The 2016 Chicago Auto Show has come to an end, and with that the best of show results have been calculated. For the eleventh year in a row, consumers have voted on their favorites in five categories. The Chicago Auto Show is the only major auto show that polls their attendees to find out which of the vehicles were their favorites.
The following are the five category winners that were chosen by vote over the 9-day public run at the Chicago Auto Show:
- Best All-New Production: Lexus LC 500
- Best Concept Vehicle: Buick Avista
- Best Green Vehicle: Chevrolet Volt
- Best Exhibit: Chevrolet
- Vehicle I’d most like to have in my driveway: Ford GT
“Best of Show voting has become a benchmark measure for our exhibiting manufacturers, and winning in any category is quite significant,” said 2016 Chicago Auto Show Chairman Colin Wickstrom. “With more than 1 million square feet of exhibit space, it’s impressive when certain vehicles and displays rise above to capture the public’s attention.”
I missed this year’s show due to an unfortunate travel emergency, but hoping to make it to next year’s. Out of all the winners from the consumer vote, I can stand behind the Buick Avista, which won Best Concept Vehicle (shown in image above). As soon as it was unveiled there was major chatter about it. Definitely both a vehicle and brand that surprised all of us.
