Autonomous cars may steal the headlines, but much of that tech is already under the hood of today’s cars, says Kevin Mazzucola, the executive director of the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia.

Whether it’s lane avoidance, whether it is adaptive cruise control, whether it’s emergency braking, those types of things,” said Mazzucola.READ MORE: Schools In Philadelphia, South Jersey Evaluating Security Measures Following Texas School Shooting
In addition to the latest production vehicles, the auto show also gives potential car buyers the chance to dream, like the $2.7 million V-16 Bugatti Chiron.
“It’s art, and it’s power and it’s beauty. And sometimes when you look at something and say, ‘That’s the best,’ it’s just kind of cool to see it and take it all in,” said Mazzucola.MORE NEWS: More Than 100 Philadelphia Middle Schoolers Demand Pennsylvania Lawmakers To Vote On Gun Control Measures
