ATLANTA: Members of Greater Atlanta Automobile Media Association (GAAMA) walked the floor of the Georgia World Congress Center to preview more than 400 new import and domestic cars, light trucks, vans, crossovers and sport utility vehicles on display at the 33rd annual Atlanta International Auto Show. Judges chose winners for GAAMA's 2015 Auto Show Awards in five categories.
“All of the nominees were competitive, and it was a tough decision in each category,” said GAAMA President Nick Palermo. “This year's show is particularly exciting because automakers are offering so much new technology across the price spectrum. For drivers, that translates to greater comfort, safety, performance and efficiency. Our winners are the star students in a class of overachievers. We added a Crossover category this year, along with a Judges' Choice award for a particularly compelling vehicle of any type."
The winners are:
Best Pickup/SUV: Ford F-150
Best Crossover: Kia Sorento
Best Green Vehicle: BMW i8
Best Luxury Vehicle: Mercedes-Maybach S600
Judges' Choice: Chevrolet Corvette Z06
