 2013 NAIAS: AUTOBYTEL EDITORS SHARE INSIGHTS FROM PREDOMINANT NORTH AMERICAN
                                  AUTO SHOW

Traditionally, the Detroit Auto Show is the most important one in North
America in terms of news and product debuts, if not physical size. Each
January, auto manufacturers from around the world descend upon Detroit to
unveil their latest models, and the Autobytel team was on the ground in the
Motor City to gather all the news, filter the noise, and tell consumers what
they need to know.

“With so many important introductions and announcements, the Autobytel team
made sure to cover everything,” said Autobytel editor-in-chief Michelle
Naranjo. “Our editorial team offers a unique perspective from the show that
includes articles and photos on our website along with interviews and videos
from the show.”

International Auto Show (NAIAS) this year. From concept vehicles, to new
technologies, to new vehicle announcements, this year’s NAIAS had it all.
