I honestly don’t know much about cars but being a Detroiter ya gotta love ’em, and the culture the automotive industry has created in the city. So of course, as the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) approached I was not only excited to see the new cars of course but also hear which cars were deemed to be the best of the year.
And the Cars.com annual Best of Awards at The Fillmore, Jan. 12TH let us all know the six vehicles that excel in Quality, Innovation, and Value in 2016. The Volvo XC90 received the Best of 2016 prize. Also honored were: BMW M235i, Play Car of the Year; Nissan Triton XD, Best Pickup Truck; Nissan Rogue, Best Family Vehicle; Mercedes Benz CLS Class, Luxury Car of the Year; Toyota Prius, Eco-Friendly Car of the Year.
But that’s not all! Cars.com award show also featured musical guests: Ohio’s Walk The Moon, who also did a David Bowie tribute which got great praise of course, and Fall Out Boy, who played an energetic 75-minute set. It was a fun evening of live music, free drinks and several small plate food stations, fellow Detroiters and car lovers!
