Cleveland Auto Show Announces Official Vehicle Giveaway


Cleveland, OH (January 29, 2015) –If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, there’s no better place to shop than the Cleveland Auto Show. While you’re there, you just may take home a brand new car as well.


The Cleveland Auto Show and the Northeast Ohio Hyundai Dealers have announced that this year’s Official Giveaway Vehicle is a brand new 2015 Hyundai Sonata.


Now in its seventh generation, the 2015 Sonata has been completely redesigned with crisp tight lines, fluid design architecture, a stiffer body structure and better overall ride quality than all the previous generations.


“We are very excited to name the 2015 Hyundai Sonata as the Cleveland Auto Show’s Official Giveaway Vehicle,” says Louis A. Vitantonio, president of the Cleveland Auto Show. “This sporty new sedan combines exceptional fuel economy with performance. It’s not only a fantastic family car, but also has great curb appeal.”


Hyundai engineers have also incorporated more than 50 percent of advanced high strength steel into the new Sonata’s construction, as well as standard safety features that include electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, traction control, ABS brakes and a tire pressure monitoring system.


To win, all you have to do is register at the Official Vehicle Giveaway booth during any day of the Cleveland Auto Show. Mail-in entries are accepted at: Auto Show Official Car Giveaway; 10100 Brecksville Road, Brecksville, OH starting on March 1st, 2014.


Each day of the show, one finalist will be chosen and invited back on Sunday, March 15. Each of the finalists will then be given a key. The finalist with the key that opens the door to the 2015 Sonata takes it home as the Grand Prize.


In addition to the Official Vehicle Giveaway, one lucky First Place winner will be selected to win one year’s worth of natural gas for the home or the cash value of $2,000, courtesy of IGS Energy.


The Cleveland Auto Show runs from Saturday, March 7 through Sunday March 15 at the I-X Center in Cleveland. Tickets are $13 for adults and $11 for seniors and preteens. Children six and under get in free. Parking is free for the duration of the Show, courtesy of your franchised new motor vehicle dealers.


The Cleveland Auto Show is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you would like more information on the Show, or to purchase e-tickets with no convenience charges courtesy of Huntington Bank, head to www.clevelandautoshow.com and click on “Buy Tickets”.
