Car enthusiasts and show-goers will get a first hand look at over 150 vehicles from auto dealers from 18 different regions.

It's the 2013 Iowa-Illinois Regional Auto Show at the River Center in Davenport, going on through Sunday, February 10, 2013.

Show organizers say this year's biggest trends are about fuel efficiency and modern technology.

Some of the newest options include accident avoidance sensors, radar guided cruise control, Pandora radio and smartphone apps that owners can use to lock/unlock and even start their cars.

Susan Shrader, the event coordinator, tells us it is a non-selling show, meaning you won't have salesmen pressuring you into buying one of the vehicles.

"So when you come to the auto show you can kick the tires, sit in the front seat, back seat. You can lift the back end. You can open all the doors. You'll be able to get information but it's a non-selling show so it makes it comfortable for someone to come and look at every vehicle imaginable."

Show hours are 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Sunday's hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
