Luxury and utility at the Michigan International Auto Show

Auto Show tech

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) A driving force behind Michigan’s economy is the automotive industry, and it’s taking center stage this weekend in West Michigan with the Michigan International Auto Show!

The auto show packs more than 300 vehicles into 200,000 square feet inside DeVos Place. Some of the models you’ll be able to find is the Honda Odyssey minivan, which boasts a built-in vacuum for cleaning up messes on the run.

Some of the new Infiniti models are going high tech to keep you safe. They have a lane departure prevention system, which will apply the brakes and sound an alarm to keep you from drifting into the other lane.

The Jaguar F-Series is an option for those who want a snazzy sports car with some pep.

And Mercedes is breaking out the luxury with a hot stone massage feature built right into the seats.

The Michigan International Auto Show runs through Sunday at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. Tickets for adults are $10. Kids ages six to 14 get in for $4 and kids five and under are free.
