Top New Vehicles to See at the 2023 Montreal Auto Show

The Montreal Auto Show is back in business and there’s plenty to see and experience

  • The last Montreal Auto Show was held in January 2020, just weeks before the pandemic broke out.

  • The event is once more being held at the Palais des Congrès.

  • Public dates run from January 20th to the 29th.

The current auto-show format might be running out of steam but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to see or do. The Montreal Auto Show has historically been one of the first to take place in North America every year and finally, after three long years, it’s finally back.

Although a number of automakers will not be present, others will have taken the opportunity to bring everything they can. As such, there are still hundreds of cars, SUVs, trucks, and EVs to ponder and touch.

The 2023 Montreal Auto Show opens its doors to the public on Friday, January 20th at 10 am. While there, make sure you check out the following vehicles:
