Affordable Options Introduced at the Detroit Auto Show

January 14th, 2016 by

Next week is the start of the 2016 North American International Auto Show, also known as the Detroit Auto Show. This year’s show is scheduled from Jan. 11-24 and opens to the public on the 16th. This January show is internationally known and it is an important show that tends to set the tone of the auto industry for the next year.

This year there are going to be tons of new models at the show and here are a two of the most affordable options that are expected to be strong competitors on the market.

Scion will introduce its first SUV, the Scion C-HR. This Scion concept made its first appearance last year, at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show. The C-HR has a 4-cylinder engine and buyers have the option of choosing front- or all-wheel-drive. This car will be a strong competitor in the smaller SUV and crossover market because it will be a new and modern affordable choice.

No longer just a concept, the Chevy Bolt will debut as a production-ready vehicle. Inspired by Chevy’s hybrid, the Chevy Volt, the Chevy Bolt will be smaller and will be a 100% electric car. Due to its decrease in size, the Bolt is expected to be more affordable than the Volt (the Volt is priced around $34,000) and it’s driving range is expected to be around 200 miles a charge.
