CHICAGO – Cars.com, the premier online resource for buying and selling new and used cars, has introduced an all-new mobile app to help car shoppers navigate auto shows with the help of Cars.com experts. The app provides users with breaking news on new car introductions, must-see vehicles along with up-close vehicle photos and videos for the major 2012-2013 auto shows.
“Our new auto show app gives car shoppers instant breaking news on new car launches as well as photos and videos from this year’s auto shows,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s Editor-in-Chief. “Instead of waiting to research what they’ve seen at the show once they get home, car shoppers can read expert insights while they walk the auto show floor, and make sure they don’t miss any must-see cars.”
Some of the Cars.com Auto Show App features include:
- Breaking news from all major auto shows

Once a decision has been made, shoppers can then use the Cars.com App to search listings and find a local dealer.”
Auto shows available on the app currently include Detroit, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. The app is available for iPhone and Android devices and can be downloaded in Apple’s App Store and Android’s Google Play.
