The 2017 Vancouver International Auto Show on Canada’s west-coast is now under way. Now in its 97th year, the VIAS runs until Sunday, April 2, being held at its now permanent home in the gorgeous Vancouver Convention Centre situated along the city’s vibrant waterfront. These shows are used by the automotive manufacturers and suppliers to showcase their new and upcoming products to both the media and consumer, so you can expect to see a wide variety of exhibits and displays which showcase the latest innovations, styling trends, and technology. Many of the exhibits are hands on, and there are lots of representatives on hand to answer questions or point out features should you be the inquisitive type.

We hit the show floor in search of the best. From North American debuts to the badass customs.
