More than 700 of the newest model year import and domestic vehicles, concept cars and even classics, along with extreme dirt road kings, modified vehicles and ultra-luxuries, will all be on display, covering the entire 700,000 square feet of NRG Center, in a truly Texas-sized event.

“The Houston Auto Show is one of most anticipated vehicle events of the year for people interested in purchasing a new car or just admiring the beauty of the automotive industry,” said Wyatt Wainwright, president of HADA. “It is the only place car buyers can see, touch and drive the widest variety of vehicles without the pressure of buying today.”

EVS Motors, who cater to the most discriminating auto enthusiasts, will once again display one-of-a-kind dream cars fresh from their Performance Studio.
