2017 OC International Auto Show + Giveaway


Everyone knows that we have fallen in love with the Kia Sorento, and we invite families to fall in love with the Orange County-based car manufacturer, Kia, at the 2017 OC International Auto Show happening at the Anaheim Convention Center happening on Thursday, September 28th through Sunday, October 1st.

For four thrilling days, the Anaheim Convention Center will be packed with more than 600 of the latest cars, trucks, crossovers, SUVs, commercial vehicles and alternative fuel options from 35 manufacturers, as well as exotics, new technologies, concept vehicles, driving simulators and more than 100 vehicles to test-drive at the event.

Take the show floor experience to the next level and test-drive a lineup of all-new vehicles, right at the show. From electric cars to heavy duty trucks, licensed drivers are invited to get a feel for the performance and handling of more than 100 new vehicles from 15 manufacturers including KIA!

Children are invited to participate in a Kids Scavenger Hunt where they will search the show floor displays with a special pass to collect stamps from manufacturers. Once they collect all the stamps, kids can turn in the pass for an official OC International Auto Show Royalty Hat, at the Activities Center. Additionally, each completed pass will be entered for the change to win a grand prize. Also, Kids can hop behind the wheel and test drive electric cars on the OC Kids Test Track at the auto show.

Don’t miss the Motor Trend Best Drivers Car Display, and learn about how KIA has won JD Power #1 car two years in a row. This special showcase will feature the magazine’s pick for best new drivers car this year, along with several other contenders as road tested by the editors of Motor Trend.
