If you can’t make it out to Los Angeles for the LA Auto Show, but are still interested in one-stop shopping for all of the newest car models, you can head over to the Arizona International Auto Show this weekend, sponsored by the Valley Auto Dealers Association. You can even take a spin in a new Toyota, Chrysler, Ford, Lincoln, Volkswagen and others at one of the available drive centers.
Additionally, the show marks the Arizona debut of the 2014 Toyota Highlander; new Corollas, Tundras and 4Runners will also be on hand for test drives, with Toyota making a donation to drivers’ choice of the American Red Cross, AMVETS, or FFA for every test drive taken. The Toyota booth is also an official Toys for Tots Donation Center, so don’t forget to bring a new, unwrapped toy to fill the Tundra truck bed and help a child in need.
The show takes place Thursday through Sunday at the Phoenix Convention Center, 100 N. 3rd St. Admission is $11 for adults, $7 for seniors, kids ages 7 to 12 and members of the military with valid ID. Kids 6 and younger get in free. Sunday is Family Day, where kids 12 and younger are admitted for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Show hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday and Sunday; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Visit the Arizona International Auto Show website for more information or to purchase tickets online.
