The San Diego International Auto Show returns to the San Diego Convention Center after a two-year hiatus, striking awe, excitement, and discussions among car enthusiasts. 

Coining the phrases “Where the Cars are the Stars”, the San Diego International Car Show —California’s send-largest auto show— will run from Dec.30 through Jan.2, 2023, with tickets available online at The show will allow spectators to get up close and personal with hundreds of new cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers, EVs, hybrids, exotics, and other vehicles. 

“We’ve been working closely with vehicle manufacturers, show sponsors, and a variety of other exhibitors to create an event that will inspire, educate and entertain,” said Scott Webb, Director of Marketing & Operations, SDIAS in a press release. 

The show will also feature a variety of vehicles, including brand-new vehicles not yet in showrooms and high-demand vehicles that are difficult to find due to supply-chain issues. Organizers said there will be a record number of electric vehicles. 

Attendees who wish to experience the handling and performance of new vehicles may participate in behind-the-wheel test drives and Camp Jeep Off-Road experience, which has appeared in the show since 2009. 

“Test drives provide a unique opportunity for car buyers to experience a variety of vehicles and have become one of the most popular features at the SDIAS,” Webb said.

Webb said Camp Jeep is one of the most anticipated experimental attractions on the auto show circut and is produced only at select auto shoes, including Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, Chicago, and San Diego.   

While test driving may garner the attention of many, event organizers said exhibits such as Electric Avenue, Mobility Zone, Exotics Vault, Classic cars, and more, will be the focal point of this year’s show.
