Consumer Reports auto experts report from the 2011 North American Auto Show in Detroit.

About our coverage

The second event of the new-car show season, the Detroit auto show provided a sneak-peek at models coming down the road during the months ahead. Consumer Reports auto editors and engineers were on hand to learn about these new vehicles and share candid first impressions.

Over two media days, we saw nearly 30 production models and concept cars, including a number of world debuts. For our online coverage, we cut through the hype to present our insights on the most-significant vehicles.

The Detroit auto show is an attraction for automotive enthusiasts and car shoppers alike. While we will attend a show preview, each year, the event is open to the public. Attending a major auto show can be a useful research opportunity, with every new model under one roof in a non-sales environment.

Additional info and photography for production models may be found in our New Car Preview.
