32nd annual auto show to run March 2-5

The 32nd annual Greater Rochester International Auto Show will roll into town this week, featuring models from each of the dozens of manufacturers offered in the Rochester region.

The show again will take place at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center from March 2 through March 5.

Although the floorplan of the show and the location of each company will be similar to last year, the displays, the product and the special features will change, said show manager Richard Sherman.

“This year’s show has as great an array of makes and models as any show we’ve ever had in Rochester,” Sherman said in a statement.

Jaguar and Range Rover again will greet visitors at the foot of the escalator and in front of the Main Street window, featuring their newest vehicles for 2017. The Lexus display will be located in the center of the lobby and will feature six 2017 vehicles including the refreshed iS.

The show will feature an $80,000 Maserati SUV, as well as the new, 290 horsepower Alfa Romeo Giulia. Kia will show off its new Niro, a hybrid CUV, and Subaru will feature its newly designed Impreza.

Several local organizations including the Sporats Car Club of America, the Corvette Club and the Genesee Valley Cart Club also will be displayed at the event. New to the event is STM Tuned of Spencerport, which specializes in performance parts and installations for drag and road racing. The company plans to show a 2015 Lamborghini Huracan, a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, the Evo and a C5 Corvette.

The state Department of Motor Vehicles will provide license and registration renewals, as well as address changes and license plate drop-offs on Saturday and Sunday.

Red Wings mascot Spikes will appear from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, followed by Mitsy from 2 to 4 p.m. Admission is $9 for adults and $6 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased at www.rochesterautodealers.org.
