9 Things to See and Do at the Seattle Auto Show

The Seattle Auto Show 2022

The Seattle Auto Show is happening this weekend.

And if you’re in the Seattle area and looking for something to do, you should check it out. It’s on now and continuing through November 13 at Lumen Field. With family fun activities, test drives and lots of new cars to check out, there is indoor fun to be had during this cold snap.

One of the cool things about auto shows is getting behind the wheel of a car you may not otherwise get to test drive. Have you test driven an electric car yet? Why not test drive the Audi Q4 eTron, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Jaguar I-Pace, Volkswagen ID.4 and Polestar which are all on hand. New Ford gas-powered models including the Maverick and Bronco Sport are also available to drive.

The all-new Alfa Romeo Tonale Should be on Your List

This crossover will be the last gas-powered new vehicle that Alfa Romeo ever introduces, but it does get some electrification as it is a plug-in hybrid. PHEVs are amazing since you get that pure electric range during the week for daily living and then the extra gas range for weekend drives and road trips. The Tonale will have up to 31 Miles in pure electric range, and the combined power with the gas powered and electric motors will have 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque.

Technology in the Tonale includes over the air updates, and advanced driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control. The interior is sleep and modern with a 12″ driver display screen and a 10″ media touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay. You’ll get to see the beautiful Italian design of the Tonale in Seattle this weekend but it won’t be in dealers until Spring of 2023.
